Earth, Wind & Fire #Ottawa
Last night’s Jazz Festival headliner act was Earth, Wind & Fire and they were certainly a big draw. I have never seen so many people pack the Festival grounds in all the concerts I have attended there (was full right to the back of the concert space). Given that they have rarely (possibly never) played Ottawa in their 42 years of touring, I guess you could say there was a pent up demand! Right from the opening they had the normally reserved Ottawa crowd on their feet dancing to the beat of their hits as well as some of their lesser known songs. Fantastic musicians, flashy outfits, choreographed moves, high energy all combined to make for a wonderful (long overdue) show to a very appreciative crowd.
On stage tonight will be Ben Harper and Charlie Musselwhite. Bring on the Blues!
