Cool rhythms were provided by resident DJs Rashida, Garth Trinidad and Vikter Duplaixy, they kept spirits high and people dancing
Sheila E. hit the stage at about 2:00 a.m. and set the place ablaze with her hits, like The Glamour Life and A Love Bizarre from her second album Romance 1600. Backed by DJs Rashida and Garth Trinidad, Escovedo took us back to when new wave was the in and neon was making a surge. Mixed with the new and old school beats from the Dj crew, Escovedo then jumped on the timbale and congas to remind us of her percussion prowess. Playing along, the DJs spun hits from Michael Jacksons Off The Wall, Prince, Gloria Estefan, afro beat rhythms and other popular songs from the 80s/ 90s era. The reason she has played with the likes of Prince, Herby Hancock and Marvin Gaye was very evident.
