It is one of the bands we are most often asked about reprising. We hear it in person, have it emailed, see it on social media: “When are you guys gonna do Earth, Wind, & Fire again?” That time has come.
Join us on Wednesday February 5th at Martyrs and Friday February 7th at Wire as Tributosaurus becomes Earth, Wind, & Fire. We’ll take you beyond September and Shining Star, right into the heart of the Serpentine Fire. So many massive hits, often mixing artistic mastery with humanistic optimism in the lyrics. That blend speaks to us. After all, That’s The Way Of The World.
EWF had absolutely everything: well-written songs, high level musicianship, top notch arrangements, a killer horn section, and some of the best group soul/funk vocals ever recorded. We’re thrilled to face the challenge of re-creating all of that again.
Some of the best guest vocalists we’ve ever had will return to help us take on Philip Bailey and friends. You may have seen Paul Mabin the night we became Sting. You perhaps know Devin Thompson from so many shows, like Kool & The Gang, Jimi Hendrix, and Otis Redding. And Marqueal Jordan returns, one of our most frequent collaborators. He’s been with us for Prince, James Brown, Funkadelic, Stevie Wonder, and many more. If you love a horn section, this night is for you. A truism: EWF showcases some of the best horn parts and performances there have ever been in popular music.
We’ll turn Martyrs and Wire into a Boogie Wonderland.
