The signature sound of Earth, Wind & Fire is not easily categorized and since the group’s
inception they have been profoundly influentially. Music recording artists ranging from
Prince to Usher to Beyoncé have credited Earth, Wind & Fire as an inspiration and
influence. The iconic band’s live concerts are led by founding members, Philip Bailey,
Verdine White and Ralph Johnson.
Virtually no party with dancing and fun is complete without an Earth, Wind and Fire
song being played at least once. Throughout the 1970s, the band churned out hits inspired
by funk, jazz, African, soul, pop and rock music. Their first number one hit in the United
States was “Shining Star” in 1975. More chart toppers such as “Got to Get You Into My
Life,” “Boogie Wonderland” and “Let’s Groove” followed. The band has enjoyed a
heavy touring schedule since the 1980s, playing to sold out audiences around the world.
Earlier this year, EWF performed at an exclusive governor’s dinner at the White House,
hosted by President Barak Obama and First Lady, Michelle Obama.
Earth, Wind & Fire has performed on every continent in the world to sold-out audiences

Fire’s music has stood the test of time.
