Chicago Tribute Experience
Originally named “The Big Thing”, Chicago Transit Authority formed in 1967 in Chicago, Illinois. After their first album they changed the name to simply “Chicago”. The self-described "rock and roll band with horns" began as a politically charged, sometimes experimental, rock band and later moved to a predominantly softer sound, generating several hit ballads. The group had a steady stream of hits throughout the 1970s and 1980s. Since at least 2008, Billboard has shown Chicago to be the "greatest of all time" American band in singles chart success, and since 2015, the "greatest of all time" American band in album chart success as well.
Now, the Chicago Tribute Experience brings you back to the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s with recreations of all of Chicago’s greatest hits performed live by some of the world’s finest musicians. This tremendous tribute to the writing, performance, style and sound of the original lineup has been carefully and thoughtfully re-created for the highest entertainment value. Most of these musicians grew up listening, learning, and passionately playing and singing along to what is now truly a phenomenon worth recreating. Enjoy the journey as they take you on the “Experience”… the “Chicago Tribute Experience”.

Just saw The Chicago Tribute Experience at Spaghettini in Seal Beach. Awesome performance! Took me back a few decades when I had Chicago posters all over my room.
“WOW!!!! Every year I think...OK this is the best line up we've had... and I definitely can say THIS is the BEST line up we've ever had. WOW!! Thank you for being a part of the FV Summerfest. I've already had MANY praises about the Chicago Tribute Experience bands and so excited to see your fans out there supporting you. Thank you for your patience with parking.... something we will hopefully have resolved next year. I also appreciated your flexibility in getting on and off the stage quickly and the sound checks went quickly as well. Thank you... those are my "stressors" of the event. I don't ever stress about the crowd loving the bands!!! I hope you and your group had fun. If you have any suggestions or comments, please do not hesitate to let me know. I am tough skinned and I always look for ways to improve so any feedback is welcome!! It was a pleasure working with you and your band. ”
