An outstanding tribute band for the music of Chicago, Beginnings will deliver a performance that is a perfect homage to more than 30 years of the legendary band’s hits at Annapolis’ Rams Head on January 19, 2019.
Very few groups have amassed at least 40 million of album sales in the United States, including 22 Gold, 18 Platinum, and 8 multi Platinum. Chicago also racked up five No. 1 albums and 21 Top 10 singles during their storied career.
“Beginnings: A Tribute to the Music of Chicago” expertly replicates a Chicago concert during the group’s heyday. The world-renowned band described themselves as a “rock and roll band with horns”, but their music is so much more than that. Their songs strived to be experimental, revolving around intricate voicing, harmonies, and rhythm patterns. They innovated by developing a fresh, unique musical approach that melded rock and roll and jazz elements.
Original band members Peter Cetera, Robert Lamm, and James Pankow joined up in 1967 in Chicago, Illinois and named their group Chicago Transit Authority, eventually shortening the name in 1969. They started by composing politics-infused rock music, reflecting America’s tumultuous era during the Vietnam War. They eventually mellowed and began producing a gentler sound, resulting in a number of hit songs from the 1970s to the 1980s.
Billboard recognized Chicago as one of the “greatest of all time” among American music groups in singles chart success since 2008, then subsequently the “greatest of all time” American band in album chart success since 2015. Chicago was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2016.
