Chicago XXX! The dream comes true!


Chicago, the legendary rock ’n’ roll band with horns and one of the best-selling and longest-running American bands, begins a new chapter in their history with the release of their 30th album, CHICAGO XXX. The first single, “Feel,” will be released on February 14. The album will be released March 21 at all retail and digital outlets and at

Chicago XXX was recorded by Lee Loughnane (trumpet, flugelhorn), James Pankow (trombone), Walt Parazaider (woodwinds), Robert Lamm (keyboards, vocals), Bill Champlin (vocals, keyboards, guitar), Jason Scheff (bass, vocals), Tris Imboden (drums) and Keith Howland (guitar, vocals).

The album was produced by Jay DeMarcus of the famed country trio Rascal Flatts. DeMarcus performed on several tracks and also assembled Rascal Flatts bandmates Gary LeVox and Joe Don Rooney to perform on the album.

A perennial force on the road, Chicago will be touring this summer with the legendary Huey Lewis the News.

Since forming in 1967, Chicago has become one of the best-loved and most successful rock groups ever, thanks to their incredible sense of pop-savvy and innovative use of horns in a rock context. The band’s worldwide sales exceed 100 million records and include five consecutive #1 albums and 21 Top 10 and 35 Top 40 singles. Chicago is the only American rock band to chart in the Top 40 in five consecutive decades.

BTW- check out the blog for Vegas's premier horn/funk band:

All the A-list cats in town come to hear 'em on Mondays nights. They are off-the-scale fine. I go every Monday. I started the blog for them.


I am, first of all, a big fan, from the beginning, of Chicago. I am very proud that they have hits in five consecutive decades. However, they are not the only American Rock Group to do so. Ever heard of Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons. "Apple of My Eye" was on the charts in 1956 and no, they have not had a hit in this decade yet but a new album is coming out in November and we can see yet another decade with a top 40 hit. They are the longevity champions of rock and roll, not Chicago. Thank you.
