Another Incredible Performance

It can be said that music is the world's gift that keeps on giving. This can certainly be said of CHICAGO as once more, the band gave a fan-packed house yet another incredible performance last evening (July 29th) at Cincinnati's Riverbend Music Center.

And for those of us who have closely followed the band over the years, it never ceases to amaze me the diversity in age CHICAGO's concerts attract. In my row alone I had a couple in their 70s to an aspiring 13-year old trumpet…

Backstage with Chicago in Boone, NC

We had a great time at the concert in Boone, NC. It was an added treat to get to meet the band and have a few minutes to talk with the band members. You always wonder what these guys are like and my family all agreed they are very approachable and easy to talk to.

The staff took great care of us and made us feel very special. Even brought us some chairs to sit in during the concert because our seats were taken while we were back stage.

It was a special… Continue

Backstage with Chicago!

THANK YOU CHICAGO for the opportunity to attend the show last night in Columbus, Ohio and participate in the meet & greet backstage.  My wife and I had a great time and we hope to be able to do it all again in the future!  Anytime I've had the opportunity to say hello and shake the hands of the members of the band that I have grown up with it's been a pleasure.  Last night was no exception and I'm fortunate to have a handful of photos to document the entire…

Thanks for 50 years!

I heard the band in Milwaukee at Summerfest on July 1st. This group has reached the pinnacle of performance. I have never heard them better. Had to hold back the tears as they performed the music we all love. The sound was excellent in the new BMO amphitheater. Walt’s flute solo’s came straight from the heart. I felt like I was as close to Walt, Lee, and Jim as I did at those frat meetings in Chicago when Jim plunked out the first few chords of Color My World. Most of all, I think…

Treasure Island, Red Wing, Minnesota

WOW! is all I can say. Chicago is as it always has been . . . an amazing band. I know with age, we all tend to slow down and mellow. Not these guys. Their energy and enthusiasm for their music is second to none. I felt emotions and had memories of years gone by, listening to all the great songs I grew up with. To all the band members I say; "Thank You"  To the founding members I would like to say; in a time of disposable materials and ideals, it is truly a blessing that you still have the…
