The name might not be “Chicago,” but you’ll recognize the sound.
Legendary drummer Danny Seraphine, from the band that created “25 or 6 to 4,” “Lowdown” and “Take me Back to Chicago,” is bringing CTA back to Canyon Santa Clarita next month, just in case you missed the March 30 show.
The “Take me Back to Chicago” tour returns April 20, with Seraphine, who was ranked among the “100 Greatest Drummers of All Time” list by Rolling Stone.
Seraphine, who’s been joined by his friends and fellow musical icons like Will Champlin (of Chicago) and Robby Krieger (the Doors) during L.A. stops, brings crowds sounds from the most epic era of rock ’n’ roll from one of the era’s most beloved bands.
“It’s a very enjoyable show because the Chicago songbook is so beloved,” Seraphine said in a recent interview. “I have a strong connection to it.”
As one of the founding members of the band, Seraphine also wrote several of the band’s songs, as well, and there’s no better chance to hear them than when CTA comes to town next month.
When asked about the band’s early years, Seraphine still has fond memories of playing the Sunset Strip after the band moved from Chicago to L.A. to “get discovered,” which ultimately happened when another legend, Jimi Hendrix, saw the band play, he said.
“There was so many great bands making it and successful… so many great bands,” Seraphine said. “Nobody ever realized that our music would still be around today.”
