The group of musicians that performed Project: Crimson last year will play the music of Chicago; specifically, the early years, around the time they were called Chicago Transit Authority. That’s how the band was known at their start, until our the city of Chicago’s actual Transit Authority lawyers threatened to sue if they did not change the name.
The first Chicago albums were experimental for their time; the starting years were groundbreaking. Chicago’s first two releases, both double albums, contain impressive, varied and polished compositions.
EthelFest 2012 will also include the previously announced Yes tribute, Going For The One. The Band:
Jimmy Warlick on lead vocals, John Covach on guitar, vocals; Chris Meeker on bass, vocals; Matt Riddle, keyboards; Mark Annal on drums
