Earth, Wind & Fire

Monday, 21 Aug 2006 | Entertainment, Family, Restaurants

Friday, Toni and I had the thrill of experiencing Earth, Wind & Fire in concert for the first time. We both have been fans of their music since grade school. The opening act was Chris Botti, a jazz trumpet player who we enjoyed very much as well.

Before the concert, we had a nice dinner at Il Fornaio in Irvine. The food was delicious. I love their bread and their calzone is crispy and light, just the way I like it. I purchased their pasta and baking cookbooks so I could try my hand at making delicious pasta and bread at home.

Then we headed for Verizon Wireless Amphitheater for the concert. I had always imagined Earth, Wind & Fire would be great to see live and they did not disappoint. We were grooving and dancing to the hits all evening long. If you haven't seen them live, you're really missing out on some awesome entertainment. The put on a great show. Phillip Bailey hit the high notes on Reasons and Verdine White is unbelievable on bass guitar. Verdine is one of the most energetic performers I've ever witnessed. I don't know how he finds the energy to keep in motion all night long, but he does and his enthusiasm is contagious. We had a wonderful time. And they played the two songs Toni and I wanted to hear: Sing a Song for Toni and September for me!
