It was 1967 when 6 young musicians with the same dream of starting a rock band with horns, came together in a small apartment in Chicago. Their dream was to play rock and roll incorporating horns along with the typical guitar, bass, drums and keyboards. These horns would be the other voice of the band and not just a support section. The band went on to sell over 120 million records in the past 45 years. The band, which was originally called the “big thing” and then “Chicago transit authority” to their current name “Chicago”, continues to tour the world with 4 of the original members plus 5 relatively new members. Needless to say, they have accumulated a very large and loyal fan base, of which we are big part of. The idea and concept of paying tribute to arguably the greatest rock band of all time, that being “Chicago” came to being in the year 2003. The band came to be in the year 2004. All of us, save one, grew up loving the music of “Chicago”.
