The Partridge Family, the Jackson 5 and, heck, even the Brady Bunch. These bands, whether real or fake, proved that forming a family band was the way to go—and still is, according to legendary Latin jazz percussionist Pete Escovedo
and his family-member-comprised orchestra. California natives, Pete’s older and younger brothers have performed with the orchestra at different times. The group reached stardom with Carlos Santana in the late ’60s, and now, Pete works with his sons and daughter, longtime Prince collaborator Sheila E., to keep the family tradition alive. The gang’s all there on Saturday, June 22, at Silo’s. 530 Main St., Napa. $30—$40. 7pm and 9:30pm. 707.251.5833.
