For us you can’t get a better live experience than Earth, Wind & Fire and when I go to concerts, it’s often hard to describe the emotions, excitement and intimacy between the stage and the audience. So to summon a time when live albums stimulated our imagination in “being there” and helped us appreciate the skill of “live music”, we figured we’d grab some audio footage and our pictures from the Earth, Wind & Fire concert in Atlanta. Here is the classic song, “In the Stone”. Oh and if you’re wondering if those are “real strings” you’re hearing, that would be the symphonic sounds of the GRAMMY award winning Atlanta Symphony Orchestra playing along with them. Yaaaaayyyyyy, live music!!!
GFM had the wonderful opportunity of not just covering Eric Roberson’s “Mister Nice Guy” tour in Atlanta but a bit of the backstage action as well. From the warm up vocals backstage, pairing the perfect suit for sartorial elegance and giving the final note of the night, we were there for it all. The show was full of major highlights like the vocal and physical acrobatic performance of the Atlanta songstress, Algebra Blessett along with special surprise appearances by Anthony David and Rhonda Thomas. Also a big shout out for Ms. Avery Sunshine and V-103 radio personality Terry Bello for being in the house as well. Check out some of our pictorial footage before and during the show. (more…)
