.Earth, Wind & Fire tribute group Kalimba plays Vino Godfather Winery

For those Earth, Wind and Fire fans who missed their last area tour dates in June, the upcoming show with the Pacific Northwest’s greatest R&B export, Kalimba, should appease their fans and then some. 

Taking on the vocal styling of EWF singer Philip Bailey is no easy task, but the band plays their catalog like it’s their very own. And while tribute acts today may seem a dime-a-dozen, this collective provides a show worthy of any venue’s stage.   

Expect fan favorites such as “Reasons,” “Shining Star,” “September,” “After The Love Has Gone,” “Let’s Groove,” “Serpentine Fire,” and a handful of other dance-able EWF hits. For those still on the fence, visit Kalimba’s website to see and hear the band live in all its magical splendor. 

Kalimba already played a handful of shows in the area recently, including (but not limited to) Sacramento, El Dorado Hills, Ripon, and San Francisco, and play up and down the coast with semi-regularity. And while most folks need to work on buying tickets for winery shows of this ilk, it would be wise to reserve your spot before the tables are gone. 

Come hungry, as Fred’s Barbeque will be cooking up a storm. The day’s menu includes tri-tip sandwiches, BBQ Ribs, BBQ Chicken, hot links, hot dogs, tacos with beans & rice, chicken & shrimp pasta, and a handful of vegetarian options.

This “Fall Dance Party” lasts for three hours and will be a great way to burn off some calories you’ll rack up by eating the venue’s food fare beforehand. 

The show starts at 1 pm, Sunday, Sept. 17. And all ages are welcome (sorry, no babes in arms). Tickets are $40 in advance and can be purchased here. For those who wish to try their luck at the door, tickets will be $45 the day of the show. The Vino Godfather Winery is located at 1005 Walnut Ave. in Vallejo.
