Earth, Wind & Fire
From the Promoter
One of funk’s most legendary and influential bands, Earth, Wind & Fire, will headline the TD Toronto Jazz Festival this summer. Performing a collection of their greatest hits, Earth, Wind & Fire will play the Sony Centre on Tuesday, June 24. Tickets are on sale Thursday, February 13 at Ticketmaster or by calling 1.855.872.7669. This performance is presented by Visit Florida and the Toronto Star.
Combining soul, jazz, funk and R&B, Earth, Wind & Fire (EWF) has spent more than four decades influencing popular culture with hits such as “Shining Star”, “September”, “That’s The Way of the World” and “After The Love Has Gone.” Spreading the message of universal love and harmony, EWF revolutionized a new brand of pop during the 1970s that would transcend genres, cultures and audiences. Led by Philip Bailey’s trademark falsetto voice, electrifying instrumentation and arrangements would be the signature hallmarks of EWF’s all-encompassing musical vision, making them one of the tightest bands in funk at that time.
With a celebrated legacy that includes selling more than 90 million albums worldwide, EWF is one of the most successful and critically acclaimed bands of the twentieth century. Amassing six Grammys over their career and inductions into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Songwriters Hall of Fame, their music continues to resonate a generation after its initial release.
For 10 days in June, the TD Toronto Jazz Festival will present more than 350+ concerts across 40 locations from June 19 – June 28, 2014, as half a million music lovers unite for one of the city’s largest music festivals. Discover over 1,500 musicians who will entertain as the sounds of jazz play throughout and let the music be your guide this summer as we turn up the jazz!
