Sure, Rodney Dangerfield and his pal the gopher disco danced to "Boogie Wonderland" in Caddyshack. Sure, you've cringed as your unfunky aunt shakes her moneymaker to "Let's Groove" at every wedding you;ve attended since grade school. Yes, Earth, Wind & Fire are almost synonymous with "grown folks music" - that particular breed of 70s-80s classic R&B that gets played at Knights Of Columbus jams accross the country.
But to just pigeonhole the jazz/funk/r&b supergroup to their late 70s period is just plain wrong. EWF's early output was as funky as D-Wade's sweatsock after practice - and they continue to kick out the jams while collecting awards along the way, the most recent being this year's induction into the songwriters hall of fame.
Sunday night at the Hard Rock I'm sure the disco ball will get a good workout as will several hundred pairs of platform shoes dusted off for the occasion. But if you're lucky, EWF will bust out their 1973 hit "Evil" or get "Mighty Mighty" on you. And then, if you are still able to walk without shaking your hips, you should find a witch doctor immediately, because you may be a zombie.
