It was 1982. After Al McKay left the group, legendary funk group Earth, Wind & Fire was on its last legs. Finally, in 1983 it was over. The band that had defined the modern sound of R&B music was done. All that was left was the legacy of the music that had sustained and nurtured a generation.
Then in 1990, the EWF icon, Al McKay - who was the "groove director" of the original band, who produced Boogie Wonderland, co-wrote "September" and was world-renown for his rhythm guitar chops - decided to put a band together from the spirit of the original group.
They called themselves the "LA Allstars."
The group assembled former band members of EWF into a model of the original rhythm-section- driven group, organized around the all-important guitar work and music direction of McKay.
Over the years, the LA Allstars - and later the Al McKay Allstars - have featured a who's who of the most influential musicians in R&B and Funk. Built around legendary Earth, Wind & Fire guitarist Al McKay, the aptly-named “Al McKay ́s Earth, Wind & Fire Experience" reincarnates the spirit of the original - powerfully delivering hit after hit of the supergroup's songs - in the original keys and with the original feel. McKay's group, the Al McKay Allstars, offers a stunning demonstration of the power of living, vital performance, upholding the high standard of live excellence that established the original Earth, Wind & Fire sound
Among musicians and fans alike, the group is considered the top funk band on the planet today.
So if you are a fan of EWF or American funk music in general, be sure to see and hear the Al McKay ́s Earth, Wind & Fire Experience on its worldwide tour. It is truly the opportunity of a lifetime and an experience not to be missed.
