Rock & Pop, Seasonal Special Happenings


When: Wed., Aug. 19, 7:30 p.m. 2015

“Man, oh man!” Those words, spoken at the end of the night by Chicago trombone player James Pankow, a founding member of the group, provided a succinct and accurate description of the blistering set that the band had just laid out. Chicago’s sold out gig last year at Hard Rock Live was a jaw-dropping experience on a number of levels. First, the horn section — a powerful trio providing a swirling storm of constant activity with Pankow on the trombone, Lee Loughnane on trumpet and Ray Herrmann on woodwinds (a temporary sub for original member Walt Parazaider, who was absent) as always, was quite a sight to see. They’ve earned their legendary reputation for a reason — one could watch the conversations between these guys, musical and otherwise, all night long — and certainly, some folks did. Expect a similar show tonight as the band returns to the venue. (Matt Wardlaw)
