An Evening with War 

When: Sun., Nov. 20 2016
Consider tonight a throwback night at the Kent Stage with southern California legends, WAR. Known for the infectious and socially conscious hits, “Why Can’t We Be Friends?” and “Low Rider,” (both of which appeared on the Grammy nominated album Why Can’t We Be Friends) and for bending and blending genres, War has long since solidified their place as musical legends since they released their first album in 1970. War, which always had a revolving door of back up and featured musicians, has gone through some serious lineup changes since a dispute between band members and their management in the mid-1990s. Leroy “Lonnie” Smith, the only remaining original member, picked up the pieces and carried on the music and the message with a worthy backing band. Despite the changes, Smith reminds fans old and new to “love War.” (Tucker Kelly)
