The Music of CHICAGO with Danny Seraphine and Jeff Coffey with special guest The Buckinghams

In the beginning, there was Chicago Transit Authority. Danny Seraphine, along with his bandmates set out to change the face of Rock and Roll by creating a rock band with horns. During his tenure with Chicago, they scored 20 top 10 hits, (5 reaching #1) and 10 Grammy nominations. He is considered the father of jazz rock drumming. In 2006, Danny came full circle, forming California Transit Authority (CTA). Guitarist Marc Bonilla and Keyboardist Ed Roth have been with CTA since its inception. In 2022, former Chicago bassist/singer Jeff Coffey joined the lineup, making this iteration the most powerful and dynamic in the band’s history. They say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, evidenced by all the Chicago cover bands out there. Why settle for an imitation when you can have the real deal!

One of the most beloved and respected Chicago bands ever to explode onto the national scene, The Buckinghams’ live concerts pack power into 60s pop rock. Bringing back great memories with their chart-topping 60s hits, The Buckinghams include 70s favorites in their powerful sets, electrifying audiences with dynamic vocals and solid harmonies. Full-time since 1982, original members Buckinghams Carl Giammarese and Nick Fortuna and their band have continued to deliver fast-paced shows that bring crowds to their feet. Their No. #1 Billboard hit, “Kind of a Drag” is the standout that first made them famous.
