War (originally called Eric Burdon and War) is an American funk band from Long Beach, California, known for the hit songs “Spill the Wine,” “The World Is a Ghetto,” “The Cisco Kid,” “Why Can’t We Be Friends?,” “Low Rider,” and “Summer“. Formed in 1969, War was a musical crossover band which fused elements of rock, funk, jazz, Latin, rhythm and blues, and reggae. Their album The World Is a Ghetto was the best-selling album of 1973. The band also transcended racial and cultural barriers with a multi-ethnic line-up. War was also subject to many line-up changes over the course of its formation, leaving member Leroy “Lonnie” Jordan as the only original member in the current line-up; four other members created a new group called the Lowrider Band.
There are a LOT of awesome hits by War…all of ’em great! So, we’re gonna pay tribute to them this week, and play at least half a dozen of their greatest hits this Saturday Night, from 6-10!
Don’t forget to call-in your requests or text them to (806) 350-1009! It all happens this Saturday evening from 6:00 pm until 10:00 on 100.9 The Eagle!
