Fantastic show at the Fraze Pavilion in Dayton this weekend.  I"m a native of Chicag0 (the city) and this made me feel like I was home again.  To say the band is timeless is and understatement!

Exceptional Show at Interlochen!

You have been my favorite since high school (1975) and you seem to get better and better!  You are an inspiration to me!  Thank you for sharing your exceptional talent and God Bless you all!

"Liquid Sky" -a post from Robert Lamm

This song is the 3rd collaboration with Z. I originally had the music, track, loops, but no melody or lyric.

Gave it to Lenny Kravitz, but he kind of decided to be party celeb instead of musician.

Gave it to Champlin, but he typically sneered at writing with me.

Sent it to Z who had the melody, the harmonies and the lyric story done, OVERNIGHT! via Internet.

The 8/16/11 Wolftrap Concert

The 8/16/11 Chicago Show at Wolftrap (DC metro area) was amazing. The band members played with amazing energy and passion and graced us with several Encore performances. Hard to imagine that some of these guys have played together nearly 40 years.  The songs are iconic and loved by all Chicago fans. Keep it up!

A definite experience, Chicago in the Rain!. Being an outdoor ampitheater, we were rained upon for the first half of the show. Most people were wearing ponchos and braved the eliments to see their favorite band and it was worth it. Robert even acknowledged our loyality to their music.

The show lasted 2 hours and the set was a little different then the April Convention show. We got a surprise with the singing of one of the new songs on the Christmas album and that was great. I…

All I can say is AWESOME!!!!  I sat off to the side of the stage and couldn't see center stage because of a big pole in the way, but it was still awesome!!!  Thank you for singing the full version of Ballet.  I haven't heard the full version in concert in a few years.  I sang and danced through the concert.  Keep rocking and having fun!!… Continue

Singing with Chicago

WOW. I can't wait to do it again. I was gonna go to the Chicago show anyways in Mississippi tomorrow night. Didn't see or hear of anyone that was going to do the "Sing with Chicago" for the American Cancer Society. So I asked, they said it didn't sell, Huh I didn't see it. So they put it back up for bids and I was the winning bidder.
