Kalimba-The Spirit of Earth, Wind & Fire 12/3/16 at The Royal Esquire Club Seattle

14590487_1829667600603229_5364024443127074963_nKalimba-The Spirit of Earth, Wind & Fire at Seattle’s Historical Royal Esquire Club brings the energy, true essence and sound of the Legend EWF that we know and love.

I have heard of this group from a variety of sources from those in the Pacific Northwest to even across the country and even other entertainers have told me how great Kalimba was. So I had hoped that I would get the opportunity to see their performance before I make that move down to Vegas.  I just happened to see an advertisement that they would be performing at the Royal Esquire Club, one of the last historical black owned and run club in Seattle’s Columbia City Community.  I was blessed that one of the Esquires purchased a ticket for me. My excitement and anticipation was ignited.

Arriving early to the Esquire on the evening of Saturday, December 3,2016 gave me an opportunity to witness the sound check and short rehearsal of this Earth, Wind & Fire tribute group. This gave me my special time of saying hello to the members, with hugging those I knew to introducing myself to those I didn’t.  I experienced just a glimpse of how they bring it all together and watched the gentleman that controls the sound…now that was amazing for me to watch that…his ear along with instruction from the members showed the professionalism of this group.

When the doors opened, it didn’t take long for the Royal Esquire Club to become full with people struggling to find a seat. The energy was high and the crowd was ready to dance and have a good time.  It was a great feeling for me to be apart.  To see people from a variety of ages and ethnicity, ready to PARTY.

Kalimba hit the stage full force ready to give the audience more than they might have anticipation.  From the first song to the last, you could close your eyes and believe that it was the original EWF on the stage but for me it went beyond that…Kalimba truly presents the spirit of EWF with a flava of their own, displaying smiles and an energy that they are passionate about the music they play.   From Shining Star, Serpentine Fire to That’s The Way of The World to Reasons…Kalimba was on point, on FIRE.  The audience had smiles on their faces to chair dancing such as myself to hitting the dance floor and groovin’ with vibe.  I believe everyone knew the words to each song, okay a good portion of the room, I knew the words.

This was a great night for me and I hear wonderful feedback from those around me to even the members of the Esquire Club expressing how pleased they were in this experience. This is what Seattle needs to allow to take place and support.  Everyone that loves the music of Earth, Wind & Fire needs to request to experience Seattle’s “Kalimba-The Spirit of Earth, Wind & Fire.  You will not be disappointed.  They will put on a show that will surpass the money you will pay to attend.
