Larry Dunn Celebrates Upcoming Kennedy Center Honor for Earth, Wind & Fire at the Music Box in San Diego on Sunday, July 21st
By: Larry Dunn's Orchestra (LDO)
Yes, Larry Dunn composed those dreamy, complex, memorable chords, laying the foundation that supported Earth, Wind & Fire's melodies and deep lyrics. Dunn's composition, "Shining Star," inspired many famous musical artists, including Stevie Wonder.
"Stevie Wonder actually showed up at one of my concerts, came on stage and after performing at his request "Shining Star" with me, Stevie told the crowd the first time he heard "Shining Star" on the radio, he went to his keyboard and wrote his legendary song 'I Wish!!!'" – Larry Dunn, Schmooze Jazz Magazine
Decades later, the Larry Dunn Orchestra (LDO) performs the ultimate show with Larry Dunn's Anthology of Earth, Wind & Fire. Past shows have had guest performances by Brian Culbertson, Stevie Wonder, Paulihno DeCosta, Ray Parker Jr., Ronnie Laws, Wayne Lindsey, and others. "You never know who's going to show up and sit in on one of our performances."
Come and celebrate with LDO and Larry Dunn's Anthology of Earth, Wind & Fire at the Music Box in San Diego. The concert is preceded by on-air personality John Phillips of 88.3 San Diego.
"We're excited because we get to see San Diego. It's been 25 years since Luisa and I have been there. The people are wonderful in that area. So, we're really looking forward to it." –Larry Dunn
