It may be mid-March, but at the Classic Center it will soon be the 21st night of September as a special legacy reunion of Earth, Wind & Fire takes the stage. Few bands need less explanation than EWF, whose deep grooves and cosmic dance hits, for the most part, found confident companions in bands like Sly and The Family Stone and George Clinton’s P-Funk endeavors. EWF, however, seemed distinct in its ability to create jazzy, unpredictable and infectious songs that even today circulate like wildfire. The performance will feature many members of EWF from throughout the years playing a robust catalog of classics with support from members of the Athens Symphony.
