World famous guitarist and multi-platinum songwriter, Al McKay is most definitely  one of the most innovative and influential artists of his generation. McKay landed his first professional gig at the tender age of eighteen as guitarist for the Ike & Tina Turner Revue.  Al's tenure with the Revue lasted a year and a half, after which time he returned to L.A. and began working with  a diverse array of jazz, pop and R&B artists including Charles Wright and the Watts 103rd St. Band, and Sammy Davis Jr.
It was then that Al was approached by a freshly minted band out of Chicago, who called themselves Earth, Wind & Fire. The rest, as they say, is history. From 1973, when he first joined the group, up until 1981 when he left, Al was responsible not only for a lion's share of the group's instantly recognizable sound, but was also writer and co-writer on some of their most enduring hits. Along with founder Maurice White, McKay penned such EWF perennials as "September" and "Singasong." After eight years, seven albums, uncounted thousands of tour miles and a virtually unequaled stack of hit records, Al left Earth, Wind & Fire.  Al McKay then created a band (with some original musicians like Michael Harris who is still member of the group, Andrew Wolfolk, Freddie White, Johnny Graham, Larry Dunn and Verdine White) to continue the real Earth, Wind & Fire Experience-with new singers - as Maurice White continued with Earth Wind & Fire.
In the meantime Maurice White no longer performs with EARTH WIND & FIRE (due to health reasons) and the group around Al Mckay is considered by fans around the world to continue the musical legacy of Earth Wind & Fire like no other act in the world!
We can’t wait to celebrate our 10th anniversary with this once in a lifetime performance!
