The Pete Escovedo Orchestra featuring Sheila E., Peter Michael and Juan Escovedo will join the Playboy Jazz Festival line-up Saturday, June 12th, it was announced today by Dick Rosenzweig, President of the Playboy Jazz Festival.

The group will replace Los Van Van, who regretfully have had to postpone their upcoming tour. “The coordinators of the tour of Los Van Van regret to announce that, due to an unresolved business matter between the group and a third party and circumstances beyond their control, the U.S. tour of Los Van Van must be postponed. This decision had nothing to do with the U.S.-Cuba relations or any visa issues. Their I-129 visa petitions were approved. We hope to bring Los Van Van to the United States soon after the resolution of the factors that prevented us from realizing this tour at this time." said Bill Martinez, representative for the group.

Band leader, multi-instrumentalist, and master timbale player, Grammy-nominated Pete Escovedo has been a major force in Latin music since the late 1960s. Escovedo is the patriarch of a gifted musical family which includes his children Sheila, (aka Sheila E., vocalist and drummer), Juan (a conguero and percussionist), and Peter Michael (drummer). This is their second appearance at the Festival as The Pete Escovedo Orchestra. The Playboy Jazz Festival takes place Saturday and Sunday, June 12th and 13th at the renowned Hollywood Bowl.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
