Entertainment Spotlight: East Wind Band

East Wind Band will be appearing at the StreetFest Popular Stage on Saturday August 27 at 4:00PM

Founded in 1969, East Wind Band evolved into a funk-based horn band with the likes of Tower of Power, Average White Band and Earth, Wind and Fire. Their popularity soared during the early '70's as they ignited high school dances, proms and homecomings throughout the Sacramento valley and Bay Area. East Wind became heralded as one of the hottest horn bands in Northern California, performing with renown recording artists such as The Dramatics, Bloodstone and Hiroshima. Their lustrous 8-year stint came to an end at the peak of the disco era when the group decided to call it quits to pursue other interests. Now over 30 years later, East Wind Band is back with a vengeance fueled by many of the original members.
