BEGINNINGS was established in 2002 in NYC out of the love and respect for the music of one of the greatest American bands of all time...CHICAGO.
BEGINNINGS presents a flawless replication of three decades of inspired music in a show that includes nearly every charted song and many lesser known esoteric songs that capture the hearts of traditionalist CHICAGO fans.
Mix together a group of extraordinarily talented musicians with a long list of experience in the music field, add in a love and deep respect for the music of the band Chicago and you have Beginnings: The Premier Tribute To Chicago.
These veteran musicians have worked with such famous artists as Peter Frampton, Don Henley, Joe Walsh, Constantine Maroulis (American Idol), Blood Sweat & Tears, and have even appeared in the Broadway musical Rock Of Ages. In February of 2016 the band added the crowning touch when it was joined by former Chicago guitarist, Donnie Dacus (Hot Streets & Chicago 13). Donnie was quoted as saying “These guys are so good it’s scary!”
Performing without the use of pre-recorded tracks, concert audiences get to experience a vibrant and high-energy live performance of some of the greatest songs from the golden age of Chicago, such as Saturday in the Park, 25 or 6 to 4, Just You ’n’ Me, Hard To Say I’m Sorry, and of course, Beginnings.
Beginnings has appeared to rave reviews at such prestigious venues as Walt Disney’s EPCOT Center, Bally’s Atlantic City Resort Casino, Busch Gardens Tampa “Real Music Series”, The M Resort Spa Casino in Las Vegas, The Wolf Den at Mohegan Sun, South Point Casino & Spa in Las Vegas, The Norris Theater in Palos Verdes, CA, The Villages in Florida and the Hollywood Casino at Penn National Raceway to name just a few.
The music of 2016 Rock ’n’ Roll Hall of Fame inductees Chicago spans more than four decades and includes five #1 albums and 20 top-ten hits. These timeless classics are guaranteed to be enjoyed by music fans of all ages when performed by this talented group of musicians, Beginnings.
