Enjoy an evening of Latin music and jazz when percussion master Paris Escovedo visits The Mixx in Pasadena Friday night.

The Oakland native began playing timbales as a child, displaying talent early on. In fact, percussion master Tito Puente gave Escovedo his first set of timbales. The highly acclaimed, trailblazing percussionist has since graced stages alongside industry greats, including Bobby Brown, Lauren Hill, Silk, Collective Soul, Pink, Shaun Mullins, Arrested Development and many others.

One might say Escovedo comes by his talent naturally. He is the son of the legendary late percussionist Thomas “Coke” Escovedo, who performed with the hit Latin band Azteca, among others, and was a visionary who shepherded Latin music artists to the San Francisco music scene.
