Sheila E. is called The Queen of Percussion for good reason. Not only was she hand-picked by Prince to be in his band and record on the Purple Rain album, where she lent vocals to “Let’s Go Crazy” and “Erotic City”, but on her own, she is a Grammy nominated R&B and jazz-fusion percussionist, drummer and singer/songwriter. This multi-talented artist will be in concert at The Ridgefield Playhouse on Sunday, June 1, at 8 p.m. performing from her songbook including “The Glamorous Life”, “A Love Bizarre” and the “We Are the World” session. Her latest record Icon features catchy hooks plus dynamic percussive performances and collaboration with Prince. Special guest is Starnes & Shah. A complimentary wine and cheese tasting will take place in the lobby at 7:15 p.m. For tickets ($60), call the box office at 203-438-5795, or visit ridgefieldplayhouse.org.
