Hailed as one of the “most important bands in music since the dawn of the rock and roll era” byformer President Bill Clinton, the legendary rock and roll band with horns, Chicago, came in at#9, the highest charting American band in Billboard Magazine’s recent Hot 200 All-Time Top Artists. Chicago is the first American rock band to chart Top 40 albums in six consecutive decades. Chicago was inducted into the 2016 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame! Chicago’s first album, Chicago Transit Authority, was inducted into the GRAMMY Hall OfFame in 2014, and the band performed on the Grammy stage for the first time that year.The band’s new documentary film, Now More Than Ever: The History Of Chicago, premiered at the Sedona International Film Festival in February, 2016, and won the Film Festival’s Best of Fest Audience Choice Award. The band opened the festival with back-to-back sold-out performances. Additionally, Now More Than Ever: The History of Chicago won three awards in April, 2016, at the 10th Annual Fort Myers Beach Film Festival, taking home top prizes in the Documentary and Audience Award categories. Director Peter Pardini was awarded the festival’s Rising Star Award in direction and was on hand to accept all three awards. Earlier that month the documentary was the runner-up for Audience Award at the Sarasota Film Festival. Chicago and Earth, Wind & Fire will once again embark on their North American co-headlining 2016 tour, Chicago and Earth, Wind & Fire – Heart And Soul Tour. As they have done before, both bands open and close the show together, featuring all 21 musicians on stage, joining forces for the show’s incredible finale.“One of the most exciting things about the show is when both bands perform at the end of the concert,” Lee Loughnane of Chicago said. “Having these very talented musicians playing our greatest hits together puts the excitement level at a fever pitch! From the Heart of Chicago and the Soul of Earth, Wind & Fire, it is an unforgettable experience.”Chicago’s 4th of July Fireworks Spectacular included three sold-out performances on July 2, 3 and 4, 2016, with the Hollywood Bowl Orchestra. The band has played with many Orchestras around the country in recent years, but this was one of the most special. Chicago’s newest record of new studio tracks, “NOW” CHICAGO XXXVI, was released on Frontiers Records in 2014. It 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. They have even created an online collaboration portal that allows even more performances to be worked on around the clock from remote locations. The CD package is a six-panel digipack with a beautiful 16-page full color lyric booklet.
