The name Earth, Wind and Fire evokes many images and thoughts for music lovers. They are a popular group that’s been around since 1969, and they are still going very strong, as evidenced by the popularity of their latest tour. This musical fixture has been writing hits for more than four decades. They are one of the groups that really have staying power, and one of the reasons for this is the fact that they’ve never been the type of band that only does one thing. They span genres. The group is just as comfortable playing rock, jazz, and disco, as they are R&B and soul. They’ve been able to straddle different types of musical styles, which help with their songwriting prowess and broad appeal.
Over the years, the band has had a number of different members, but the level of talent and dedication by the musicians in the band has never wavered. They’ve had more than twenty Grammy nominations and six wins. They also have twelve nominations for the American Music Awards, and four wins. Earth, Wind and Fire are in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and they have their star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Several members, including Maurice White and Philip Bailey are in the Songwriters Hall of Fame too.
While the awards are nice, it’s probably the thought of all of the music that really gets you excited about seeing this group perform live.
