Who doesn’t remember the scorching disco party Earth, Wind & Fire
put on at Sam Cooke stage in 2011? Good news to anyone who does: after eight years the band is coming back to the island! Their unforgettable seventies hits - Fantasy
, Boogie Wonderland
, After The Love Has Gone
, and many more - are ingrained in the memory of anyone who ever wore platform heels and flared pants. The band from Chicago has been partying on stages all over the world for almost fifty years with their amazing formula of at least ten band members, a blazing horn section, expertly layered vocals, and an effortless mix of styles in which pop, soul, disco, and funk blend together. Founder Maurice White hadn’t been part of the touring band for a while when he passed away in 2016. But the other three original core members – falsetto singer Philip Bailey, percussionist Ralph Johnson, and bassist Verdine White (brother of Maurice) are still feeding the flames with verve.
