The event began with a touching introduction by Sheila's father, Pete Escovedo, a percussion great himself who influenced Sheila's career and encouraged her to start playing music. The crowd received an unexpected treat when her father later joined her on stage for a duet featuring Pete on the timbales and Sheila on the congas.
Sheila explained and demonstrated her extraordinary percussion and drumming techniques including soul, funk, rock, pop, fusion, gospel and Latin jazz styles. Several lucky West L.A.

The grand finale included twenty attendees joining her to perform a rousing version of her Top 10 single "Glamorous Life."
