World-famous percussionist, entertainer and music icon Sheila E has collaborated with artists such as Lionel Richie, Marvin Gaye, Herbie Hancock, Diana Ross, Natalie Cole, Stevie Wonder, Stevie Nicks, Ringo Starr, Patti Labelle, Billy Cobham, Miles Davis and more. She also toured, recorded and co-wrote with Prince for many years, while garnering hits of her own from a string of successful solo records.

Today, Sheila E continues her worldwide performances, writing, music business, philanthropy, Christian outreach, and charitable work.

Janie L. Hendrix is President/CEO of Experience Hendrix LLC, Authentic Hendrix LLC, JMH Productions and the Jimi Hendrix Park Foundation.

Hendrix is involved in various philanthropic and educational efforts through her participation as a board member with The Fender Foundation, Northwest African American Museum, Tabor 100, National Association of Recording Artists, YMCA of Greater Seattle Board of Managers, Friends of Jimi Hendrix Park, The Center Stage Council of The Paramount and the GRAMMY Foundation.

Dinah Gretsch is Executive Vice President and CFO of the Savannah-based Gretsch Company, which is famous for the creation of high-quality drums and guitars. She has been a prominent figure in the musical instrument industry for more than thirty years.

That prominence was recognized in 2003 when the Atlanta Chapter of NARAS presented her with the Heroes Award, followed by her induction into the Georgia Music Hall of Fame in 2008. In 2010, Gretsch created Mrs. G’s Music Foundation, which supports music programs in rural schools while enriching children’s lives through participation in music.

Her artistry and skill in taking a description of what a guitar player needs and combining magnets, wire and winds to turn it into a reality has kept her busy. When asked if something is possible, she will almost always reply, “If you dream it, the Seymour Duncan Custom Shop can build it.”

Beth Marlis has traveled many creative roads over the 30+ year span of her performing career, while having simultaneously carved out a singular path as a leader in the world of contemporary music education.

Siblings, wicked harmonies, mastered musicians/multi-instrumentalists and songwriters that garnered them a publishing deal out of Nashville at the ripe ages of 12 and 15, the Command Sisters are stealing hearts everywhere from Alberta to Tennessee. Their music is fresh and new. Charlotte’s unique lead vocals and writing style along with Sarah’s ability to solo and riff like ‘one of the boys’ defines their sound — ‘country with soul’ — ‘edgy/indie country pop.’ Whatever it is, it’s exciting and innovative and completely their own.

Flipping a Fender Stratocaster upside-down, acclaimed singer/songwriter/lefty guitarist Malina Moye fills a void in the entertainment industry. Described as a modern day renaissance woman, she’s a quadruple threat, carving out her own lane in today’s music scene as one of the few artists in history able to straddle both rock and soul genres. Moye’s musical narrative boasts an impressive resume that includes making history as the first African-American woman to play the National Anthem on guitar at a professional sporting event, all the way to performing at the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame tribute concert for music pioneer Chuck Berry. Malina was praised by Jet Magazine as “the highlight of the evening” after she headlined the largest peace concert on the west coast with Chaka Khan honoring the legendary humanitarian Stevie Wonder. More recently, Malina released a single featuring Bootsy Collins called “Kyotic.”
