Earth, Wind & Fire Experience: Enter a boogie wonderland at Cafe del Mar on Feb 8

Earth, Wind & Fire Experience: Enter a boogie wonderland at Cafe del Mar on Feb 8

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 Earth, Wind & Fire icon, Al McKay – who was the “groove director” of the original band, who produced “Boogie Wonderland”, co-wrote “September” and was world-renowned 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 Earth, Wind & Fire into a model of the original rhythm-section-driven group, organised 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 Earth, Wind & Fire or American funk music in general, be sure to see and hear the Al McKay’s Earth, Wind & Fire Experience on the Phuket leg of its worldwide tour on Friday, Feb 8.

It is truly the opportunity of a lifetime and an experience not to be missed.


Doors open at 6pm. Dinner starts from 7pm. Concert starts at 9pm.
