Kirk Johnson, of KAJ Productions and the KAJ Orchestra, presents the 4th production of “Greats Gone 2 Soon” live music series.

Kirk Johnson, a Purple Rain dancer and former drummer for Prince and NPG, has a long term and strong rooted relationship with Prince and Paisley Park Museum. Together with his sister, Kathleen Johnson of Musicians4musicians, they have created an interesting and creative live music series.

This performance presents the musical renaissance man and maestro, Maurice White. It is a live musical movement of Earth, Wind, and Fire and all of your feelings and emotions. Each song will bring you back to a time and a place when the music was so wonderful. Maurice was the founder, song writer, record producer and co-lead vocalist of Earth, Wind, and Fire. He was also the hit maker and reason for the success of the female group The Emotions, and so much more.

Featuring: “Tha Fellaz” (Shayde, Len Jones, Lamont Keten, Roshewn Harrington, & David “Just Chill” Anderson) and “Ma Muz” (Germain Brooks, Kathleen Johnson, & Rhonda Johnson)
