Earth Wind For Hire started as the band from the show “Don’t Walk … Boogie!” a production in London’s west end. They went on from there to become the best and most well-known live performers of 70’s disco. .
The group is a colourful 9-piece outfit, who encapsulate, through unique performances, those classic soul, funk and disco sounds from the 1970’s.
Our funky vocalists are supported by an awesome band performing a nonstop, hi tempo back-to-back repertoire (with either a one hour or 2 x 45 minutes sets)
The amazing show includes tributes to artistes such as Chic, Rose Royce, Sister Sledge, KC and the Sunshine Band, Donna Summer, Edwin Star, Sylvester and all the 70’s disco greats, including of course Earth Wind and Fire.
The look is authentic and will transport you back to the funky dance floor grooves of the 70’s, discothèques.
