Sanchez Contemporary & Tertulia Coffee are honored to present the Legendary Percussionist, artist and author, Pete Escovedo

Pete Escovedo is an artist who broke down the barriers between Smooth Jazz, Salsa, Latin Jazz and contemporary music. His name has been synonymous in the music industry for more than 50 years. Pete is known worldwide for his live performances, session work and solo albums.

As a young boy he would sit on the steps of nightclubs and watch musicians play. Music became his outlet. When he was 15 years old he began to also sketch and paint on wood or cardboard. Anything he could get his hands on, he would start to draw.

Pete did not know that his love for music and art combined would change his life forever. And this is how it began.

Join us for an evening of celebration! 
Conversation and book signing (private, limited tickets)
to be followed by opening reception for his solo exhibition in the gallery. (open to public)
