Earth, Wind and Fire coming to Vina Robles 


–Rock and Roll Hall of Famers and Grammy Award-winners, Earth, Wind & Fire, will perform at the Vina Robles Amphitheatre on Sept. 19.

Earth, Wind & Fire has released a total of 23 albums. They have recorded eight #1 R&B singles and eight Double Platinum Top 10 Pop Albums. EWF has earned more than 50 Gold and Platinum albums and sold over 100 million albums worldwide, earning them a solid spot on the list of all-time best selling music artists.

Earth, Wind & Fire’s career achievements and their music influences impacted music history. They have been inducted into Rock and Roll Hall of Fame (2000) and The National Academy of Recording Arts & Science (NARAS) bestowed its highest honor, the Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award in 2016, totaling nine Grammy Awards for the group. The ensemble has also earned Lifetime Achievement honors from ASCAP, NAACP, and the BET Awards.

In April of 2014, lead singer Philip Bailey released his memoir Shining Star: Braving the Elements of Earth, Wind & Fire. Shining Star is a story of triumph and challenges — chronicling the band’s iconic rise to the top.

Three of the group’s principal members–Philip Bailey, Verdine White and Ralph Johnson–have each earned honorary doctorate degrees from the Columbia College in Chicago. Philip Bailey and founder Maurice White have earned doctorate degrees at Berklee College of Music.
