Parkinson’s took Earth Wind & Fire founder, Maurice White, a year ago; Reynolds is winning against the same disease & on tour again celebrating the life & music of Maurice and resurrecting the Earth Wind & Fire hits!
Los Angeles, CA February 3, 2017: Grammy nominee, Sheldon Reynolds, the 14-year Earth Wind & Fire member, legendary funk guitarist, vocalist, and producer, has teamed up with a stellar group of musicians to pay tribute to the music of Earth Wind & Fire and his lost friend, musical genius and Earth Wind and Fire founder, Maurice White, who passed away in February 2016. Reynolds, who also found himself battling Parkinson’s, is back on tour and using his musical gifts to raise funds for research along the way. Reynolds is touring with the show “Kalimba, The Spirit of Earth Wind and Fire,” which includes a 10-piece band, full horn and rhythm sections, and performs spot-on vocal treatments of the lush vocal harmonies that are the hallmark of Earth Wind and Fire’s music. “Kalimba, The Spirit of Earth Wind and Fire” makes its way to Byblos Restaurant in Los Angeles, Sunday, March 5, 2017. When asked why he chose to perform Earth Wind & Fire material again, Reynolds, currently living in California, says “Out of the thousand other groups that I have heard play this material, Kalimba is the first show that gets it like its supposed to be played.” “Kalimba, The Spirit of Earth Wind and Fire” is the concept and dream of lead vocalist, Thomas “Chazz” Smith, who grew up listening to Earth Wind and Fire’s music, and had a vision to carry on Maurice White’s positive, fun-loving, musical message of love, and unity to the world in this time of social, racial and political unrest. Says Smith, “The music of Earth Wind and Fire does not talk [negatively] about women. It does not talk about the rims on our cars; it’s no talking about our bling. It is feel-good music that is uplifting and is all about sharing the LOVE.” The lineup includes: Sheldon Reynolds, guitar/vocals; Thomas “Chazz” Smith, lead vocals; Tyriq Johnson, lead vocals (Philip Bailey parts); Michael Cole, guitar/vocals; Walter Finch, guitar; Dereke James, bass guitar; Jeff Lund, keyboards/vocals; and Ivan Payne on drums.
