Sheila E. plays a free drum clinic in Austin. How cool is that?

I love drummers. Drummers are the coolest members of the band. And it doesn’t get much cooler than listening to the famous Sheila E. playing a drum clinic in Austin at Jeff Ryder’s Drum Shop on W. Anderson Lane. The Sheila E. of Prince fame, whose father is percussionist Pete Escovedo with whom she frequently performs and who plays with Santana. She is in town to play a sold out concert at the One World Center this Friday night and decided to share her life’s lessons and techniques with everyone in attendance for free. Store owner Jeff Ryder brings in famous percussionists and drummers to demonstrate their techniques in several free clinic concerts at his store throughout the year.
