Kalimba: The Spirit of Earth, Wind & Fire

If this band sounds familiar it’s because they were here a couple of years ago. We had so much great feedback and requests for them to return and it worked out for Kalimba to make a return appearance. 

The internationally touring show Kalimba, The Spirit of Earth Wind and Fire provides an Earth Wind & Fire experience so satisfying it transports audiences back to the excitement of the first time they heard these unforgettable songs.  

The show authentically replicates the signature high notes of Philip Bailey, the thick vocals harmonies of Maurice and Ralph Johnson, along with the grooving bass lines of Verdine White. 

In 2015, Kalimba partnered with former EWF Guitarist and lead vocalist Sheldon Reynolds, and has taken this show overseas multiple times from Russia to the Middle East.  Along with Sheldon, Kalimba has performed with other former members of EWF such as Gorden Campbell ( drummer who took over after Sonny Emory), David Romero (Percussionist, 7 years) and John Johnson (Guitarist, 4 years).  

Be ready to hear all of your favorites, including September, Shining Star, Boogie Wonderland, After the Love Has Gone,  Let’s Groove, That’s the Way of the World, Devotion, Reasons, Sing a Song, Can’t Hide Love, Getaway, Fantasy, and Love’s Holiday just to name a few.

Beatles vs. The Stones

We were lucky to find this unbelievable touring show. They just happen to be playing in Bend, Oregon on July 21 and getting them to come up for our July 26 show was an easy fit into both of our schedules. You will witness two of the greatest bands of all time face off in a high-energy, adrenaline pumping musical showdown. 

The Fab Four, represented by tribute band Abbey Road will engage in a barrage of hits against premier Rolling Stones tribute band Jumpin’ Jack Flash. It’s a face-off you won’t want to miss! 

The show has been touring since 2011. The groups perform alternating sets of hits from the classic eras of both bands complete with authentic costuming and instrumentation before closing with a fantastic never before seen encore.
