An evening of Latin jazz and more with superstar drummer Sheila E. (The Glamorous Life), GRAMMY-winning pianist-composer Eddie Palmieri, and legendary salsa vocalist Tito Nieves, all backed by NJPAC favorite Christian McBride and his Big Band.

During her 30 years in the music industry, Sheila E. has carved a name for herself as one of the world’s most iconic percussionists, having collaborated with the likes of George Duke, Marvin Gaye, Gloria Estefan and Prince. Multiple GRAMMY winner Eddie Palmieri, one of the finest Latin jazz pianists of his generation, is known for fusing the rhythms of his Puerto Rican heritage with the melody and complexity of American jazz. Chart-topping salsa singer Tito Nieves is famous around the globe for chart-topping hits like “El Amor Más Bonito,” “Sonámbulo,” and his international smash, “I Like It Like That.”

When these artists share a night of sizzling, high-energy music in Prudential Hall, all backed by multi-GRAMMY-winning bassist Christian McBride and his Big Band, just try to sit still!
