In 1962, Maurice White began playing the drums for a jazz group called The Pharaohs in Chicago, Illinois. Seven years later, he formed the Salty Peppers with keyboard player Don Whitehead and vocalist Wade Flemons. After releasing the singles "La La Time" and "Uh Huh Yeah," Maurice moved the band to Los Angeles and changed their name in honor of the elements in his astrological chart. Sherry Scott, Verdine White and other artists joined the group and they released their debut album, Earth, Wind & Fire, in 1971. Rolling Stone notes that Earth, Wind & Fire have always preached clean, uplifting messages," and fans include Usher, Quincy Jones, and First Lady Michelle Obama. Band members play a variety of instruments, including trumpets, guitars, saxophones, conga drums, and kalimbas.
Early Earth, Wind & Fire concerts included mystical elements such as pyramids and disappearing acts. Doug Henning, a magician, helped with magic tricks, and Yahoo! Music called their act "a lavish, effects-filled extravaganza." The musicians wore African robes on stage, and the vibrant colors enhanced the joyful ambiance of their concerts. Popular Earth, Wind and Fire albums include Spirit, That's the Way of the World, and Gratitude. To this day, Earth, Wind & Fire continues to perform across the country.
