“Shining Star played to a sold-out house at Freedom Hall and promptly validated why they are the premiere Earth, Wind, and Fire tribute band in the nation!Impeccable replication of the fabulous EWF sound, tasteful period-costumes, and smooth choreography made the show look and sound like an actual EWF concert. Our audience had a wonderful experience that evening and hoped to see them again!” Charles Sabey, Freedom Hall, Chicago, Illinois
