Hailed as one of the "most important bands in music since the dawn of the rock and roll era" by former President Bill Clinton, the legendary rock and roll band with horns, Chicago, came in at #4, the highest charting American band in the chart’s history, in Billboard Magazine's recent Top Bands and Duos. Chicago is the first American rock band to chart Top 40 albums in six consecutive decades and was inducted into the 2016 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Chicago’s first album, “Chicago Transit Authority,” was inducted into the GRAMMY Hall of Fame in 2014, while Robert Lamm and James Pankow became inductees of the Songwriters Hall of Fame in 2017. These legendary songwriters wrote mega-hits such as “25 or 6 to 4,” “Saturday In the Park,” “Feelin’ Stronger Every Day,” “Make Me Smile” and many others.
Chicago’s lifetime achievements include two Grammy Awards, two American Music Awards, Founding Artists of the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, a Chicago street dedicated in their honor, and keys to and proclamations from an impressive list of US cities.
