One Week From Tonight: The Benefit Concert For Marty Grebb

We've been talking about it for months now ... and the fund-raising concert event of the year is finally here.

Now being billed as Chicago Music, '60's Style, the line-up is a virtual Who's Who of Chicago Rock Musicians from the '60's ...

Ronnie Rice (formerly of The New Colony Six)

Jimy Sohns and The Shadows Of Knight (featuring David "Hawk" Wolinski)

The Cryan' Shames (featuring original members lead singer Tom Doody and Jim "Hooke" Pilster)

And ... just added ... Jim Peterik and The Ides Of March!!!

The whole thing caps off with an appearance by Nick Fortuna, Carl Giammarese, Marty Grebb and Dennis Tufano ... with special guest Danny Seraphine, founding member of Chicago on drums ... performing the hits of The Buckinghams.  (In 1967, the line up of Fortuna, Giammarese, Grebb and Tufano, along with original drummer Jon-Jon Poulos inspired Cash Box Magazine to name The Buckinghams as Group Of The Year!)

Other special appearances that night will include The Chicago Experience, featuring the hits of Chicago, comedian Tim Walkoe, Scott May (of The Ides Of March) and more.

A few tickets are still available through The Arcada Theatre Box Office at ... but you'd better hurry!!!

This is an event NOT to be missed.  (I've seen the set list ... and, although I've been sworn to secrecy, you will be kicking yourself for a LONG, LONG time to come if you miss this concert event ... it is likely to be the very last time you'll ever have the chance to see this much Chicago Rock Royalty sharing the same stage.  In fact, this may be the first ... and ONLY time we've ever had this many of our Local Heroes all performing on the same bill together!)

We hope to see you there!
