Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductees CHICAGO will return to Huber Heights Rose Music Center on Sunday, May 5th
Hailed as one of the “most important bands in music since the dawn of the rock and roll era” by former President Bill Clinton, Chicago continues to be true ambassadors for their beloved hometown, carrying the city’s name with pride and dignity around the world. From the signature sound of the Chicago horns, their iconic vocalists, and a few dozen of ever-classic songs, the legendary rock and roll band’s concerts are celebrations. 2019 marks the band’s 52nd consecutive year of touring, without missing a single concert date.
Chicago’s newest record of new studio tracks, “NOW” CHICAGO XXXVI, released on Frontiers Records, includes eleven brand new songs recorded on the road. Chicago has built a new recording system that is flexible, portable, powerful and musical. This new “recording rig” travels with the band and has an online collaboration portal that allows even more performances to be worked on around the clock from remote locations.
Chicago’s lifetime achievements include two Grammy Awards, two American Music Awards, Founding Artists of the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, a Chicago street dedicated in their honor, and keys to and proclamations from an impressive list of US cities. Record sales top the 100,000,000 mark, and include 21 Top 10 singles, 5 consecutive Number One albums, 11 Number One singles and 5 Gold singles. An incredible 25 of their 36 albums have been certified platinum, and the band has a total of 47 gold and platinum awards. Recently Chicago came in at #4 in Billboard Magazine’s Top Bands And Duos, making Chicago the first American rock band to chart Top 40 albums in six consecutive decades.
The original four band members are Robert Lamm on keyboards and vocals, Lee Loughnane on trumpet and vocals, James Pankow on trombone and Walt Parazaider on woodwinds. The band line-up also includes Wally Reyes, Jr. on drums, Keith Howland on guitar and vocals, Lou Pardini on keyboards and vocals, Ray Herrmann on sax and flute, Neil Donell on vocals, Brett Simons on bass and Ramon “Ray” Yslas on percussion.
