Earth, Wind & Fire – Not Just a Hot Sacramento Night

After 40 years of performing together, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame band Earth, Wind & Fire (E,W&F) brought the 1970s’ back to life on Wednesday night at Thunder Valley Casino.

Without skipping a beat, the energetic band delivered a crowd pleasing performance to approximately 4000 people at Thunder Valley’s new outdoor amphitheater. The stage, which is removable when concerts or outdoor events are not planned, offers Placer County another exceptional venue for star performances.

Unlike their earlier days, E,W&F no longer bases their performances on over-the-top theatrics; instead, they have opted for a well choreographed light display, full background ensemble and audience attention to help bring their music to life. Dressed in slick yet modern attire, the band took to the stage with the experience of 40 plus years and never looked back.

For the entire hour and a half set, E,W&F had the audience in their hands – hanging on every song. No matter which song they belted-out audience members were on their feet; singing and dancing as if it was 1970. E,W&F were electric and truly made their tried and true songs, like ‘Boogie Wonderland’ and ‘Shining Star’, seem like they were written yesterday.

After about 80 minutes of continuous hits, the band emerged and played some of their most well known songs ‘September’, Let’s Groove’ and ‘Mighty Mighty’. There was not a sole left sitting as the tunes lit-up the stadium and the ears of loyal fans.
