Virtual Event: The History of the Band Chicago
Thursday August 19 @ 6:30 PM - 7:30 PM
If you like your rock ‘n’ roll mixed with an exciting blast of horns there is no better than the music group Chicago. Formed in the city of Chicago in 1967 the band produced a steady stream of hits throughout the 1970s and 1980s. Chicago has sold over 100,000,000 albums and, based on those sales, Chicago is the most successful American group ever according to Billboard Magazine. Using performance and interview clips, we’ll trace the arc of their career from their early rock ‘n’ roll successes like “25 or 6 to 4” and “Saturday In The Park” to their later, softer hits like “If You Leave Me Now” and “Hard To Say I’m Sorry.”
Gary is an adjunct professor at the College of DuPage/CE teaching a number of Pop Music History Classes.
