The concerts are held Saturdays at 7 p.m. at Central Park, which is located at 27150 Bouquet Canyon Road in Saugus.

The group is popular because of its reputation for sharing the sound of the original Earth, Wind and Fire, a belief even held by one of the famous band’s members.
“Out of 1,000 other bands that I have heard play this material, Kalimba is the first band that gets it like it’s supposed to be played,” said former Earth, Wind & Fire guitarist Sheldon Reynolds in 2013.

Based in the Pacific Northwest, the lead vocalist is Thomas “Chazz” Smith and the band’s drummer Jeff Haile, whose dream was to play the music that they listened to growing up. Over time, the band grew and started attracting national attention. As a result, Kalimba, The Spirit of Earth, Wind and Fire has performed across the country at casinos, state fairs and numerous jazz clubs. Concerts in the Park are free events put on by the City every Saturday night through August 26. The family-friendly atmosphere allows residents and visitors to sit back, relax and enjoy the music all summer long.

Concert-goers are encouraged to bring beach chairs and blankets and food vendors will be on site, selling a variety of concessions and snacks. A free bicycle valet service is provided by the SCV Bicycle Coalition, allowing residents to bike to and from the concert and avoid the hassle of finding a place to park.
