Introduction – The Chicago Experience brings audiences not only the tremendous catalogue of Chicago’s music but a reminder of the times and events that shaped their lives and their writing. Introduction: the name of the first song of the first Chicago album, and the beginning of a musical legacy that spans five decades. This performance brings the raw, unleashed sounds of 1968-1978. Fans have compared Introduction’s musical replication and energy level to the early days of Terry Kath and the now famous albums CTA through Chicago X. Introduction pays very careful attention to every musical and vocal nuance, to deliver what is the most memorable Chicago show of ANY Chicago tribute band in the United States and Canada!
Since their inception in 1968, Chicago is the first American band to chart in the top forty in five decades. In Billboard Magazine’s list of Top 100 artists of all time, Chicago came in at #10, the highest charting American band. Record sales top the 120 million 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 32 albums have been certified platinum, and the band has a total of 47 gold and platinum awards.
