Hi All!

I'm new the Chicago The Band Music Community.  I've been a loyal Chicago fan since the day I bought the "Chicago Transit Authority" album back in the early seventies when it was released. I'm retired military, and they have been there with me through high school, many military deployments, marriage, divorce, marriage again, children, and grandchildren.  It's amazing how so many of the songs I grew up with and went through life with still…

Raleigh concert

I saw my favorite band in Raleigh this past Saturday night. I drove 5 hrs to see them. It was worth every mile. I saw them in May at Harrah's Cherokee. They are the best band of all time for me. They make me so happy every time I hear one of their songs. I grew up listening to them and still enjoy them as much as I did in the 70's when I first know who they were. I am so happy the merchandise has come out. For the past few years I had been trying to get shirts, posters and such. I would love…

Apologies!!!!

I want to say Chicago has been loved by me for 42 years. I loved them as a child! They got me through my divorce in 1981 and  it was so hard because I still loved my ex-husband. He went to Embry- Riddle, in Daytona Beach, Florida for 4 years and guess who typed his reports. Well, single life attracted him and left a 1 year old and me by the sidelines. Well, I have always put myself on the line for others and I probably would do it again. My friend and I went to Phoenix, Arizona last year. My…

Early Chicago Music Sketch Scorers

Hello Chicago Fans, I know many of you are musicians and have accumulated sheet music over the years of our favorite band.  I lost the Complete Works Sketch Scores for Chicago Transit Authroity, Chicago II and III in a move in 1978.  Alas, I am having trouble finding a credible source to buy/borrow or get "gifted" one.  I still have my Chicago V, VI, VII and VIII original sketch scores.  So within the appropriate way of securing one, please advise if anyone has one.  I'd be willing to…

Chicago in Atl at Chastain Park

Really looking forward to next week's show in Atl. The band has been at Verizon in Alpharetta the last couple of tours and front row seats are great, but were below stage level which made it hard to see the entire stage, even while standing. Seats at Chastain are back farther, as there is a "table set-up" with season table ticket holders closest to the stage. The Fab Club tix are as close as possible and I appreciate that. 

Here's hoping they don't confiscate my camera at…

Chicago/REO concert Indy

We enjoyed a fantastic show on Sunday night at Klipsch music center in Indy. I have seen Chicago dozens of times over the last 4 decades and had the extreme privilege of "Singing with Chicago" a few years ago! I love the energy they always bring. The "hits" sound great and the new music is exceptional. I always leave the show saying they re better performrs than ever. Thanks to all who make this music sound great each and every time,! Can't wait till the next show!

Seeing Chicago Tonight with my friend, Vicki!

Tonight in a suburb north of Detroit, Chicago is playing at DTE!   Two of my friends have a nasty virus that is going around.  My friend, Vicki, is going with me....and it is raining and storming outside.  I have waited to see if they would cancel--as Rascal Flatts did cancel last summer!  But, not yet--no cancellations!  I am waiting, though, We will go out to dinner and see how it goes.....Maybe they will cancel yet--as it looks pretty gloomy and thundery outside.....hmmmmm.....time will…

Northerly Island Concert

The concert last night was FANTASTIC!!  This was the seventh time seeing Chicago in concert and they never disappoint. REO was also great and I loved when they played together.  Their hook-up with Earth Wind & Fire was the best however.  It was a perfect night for an outdoor concert with our hometown boys!

High Energy!

Had a great time at the Greek last night and enjoyed the high energy of the bands and the crowd singing along.  The crowd sang pretty well, LOL!   Bravo Chicago, REO and the audience!

More Will Be Revealed is GREAT!

Love love love that new tune! You cats stretched out a bit on this one. Very tasty. Congrats on this accomplishment! It's so nice to hear real musicians playing real music.  Robert's voice is as rich as ever. Speaking of that, I gotta take a step back and mention Jason. Great job on 'Love Lives On'. There's a nice richness to your voice that comes out when you sing in a lower register. We got a taste of that rich smoothness on 'Sophisticated Lady' on your Big Bang album, which was fantastic.…
