  • Chicago Loses Two Band Members in One Week: Whos Gone Whos New


    Chicago Loses Two Band Members in One Week
    This is a band that has had a revolving door of members through the years but just this week bassist and vocalist Jeff Coffey and drummer Tris Imboden both announced they were leaving for family reasons. They were kind of saying the band tours too much for them.

    Coffey's note to the fans said, “I am coming to you today with a heavy heart to announce that I am also leaving Chicago. In fact, we both played our last show earlier this week. As many of you know, my family is my whole world! We’ve all faced this same dilemma at some point, I’m sure. As Tris eluded, the scale here leans more and more towards heavy touring, with NO time for anything else. It wasn’t the right balance for me. As Chicago moves forward, I wish them continued success with their long and illustrious career.”

    Chicago released a statement wishing Tris well and announcing Walfredo Reyes Jr. who has been playing percussion for the band for the last 5-6 years would be their new full time drummer. He's also played with Carlos Santana, Steve Winwood and Smokey Robinson. The statement also said goodbye to Coffey saying “While Jeff was only with us for a short time, we are grateful for his considerable contributions and his dedication. We wish him continued success with his solo career and in all his professional endeavors.”

    The band also addressed the toll of being on the road, “The rigors of touring are immense. Now, in our 51st consecutive year of touring, we understand the toll it takes on families, the birthdays and milestones that are missed and the strain of being away from loved ones for weeks at a time. Chicago routinely plays over 100 events a year. When you add in travel days, band members are away from home for over 150 days a year. It is a difficult life, but also one filled with tremendous rewards. We look forward to sharing those rewards as we welcome new members to the band.”

    And the announcement of their new singer, “Many of you are already familiar with Canadian Neil Donell who has been enthusiastically received as a guest vocalist with Chicago on occasion, we now welcome him as an official band member taking over lead tenor vocals. On bass we will be joined by Brett Simons who has toured and recorded with musical icons such as Brian Wilson, Fiona Apple and Melissa Etheridge. We will be posting more about these new members in the weeks and months to come, and hope you will embrace them with the same love and support you have for all present and former Chicago band members.

    Jeff Coffey had been with Chicago since 2016 – he replaced Jason Scheff which in turn replaced original bassist and vocalist Peter Cetera and Tris Imboden since 1990 he replaced original Chicago drummer Danny Seraphine.

    Chicago has four remaining members of the band from the good old days vocalist and keyboardist Robert Lamm and the horn section Lee Loughnane, James Pankow and Walter Parazaider. Walter is still a member of the band but touring is not part of his life anymore. - by John Beaudin

  • Peter Cetera Done With Chicago After Declining Another Reunion at Songwriters Hall Of Fame


    Peter Cetera Is Done With Chicago After Declining Another Reunion at Songwriters Hall Of Fame
    This story is almost anti-climatic and really not surprising considering the same thing happened at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame last year so here we go again. Robert Lamm and James Pankow will be honored at Songwriters Hall Of Fame next week in New York and Cetera will not be there.

    Cetera's response, “Music is supposed to be fun, and nothing about that evening was pointing towards it being a joyous occasion. I mean, there’s a reason why we’re not together, you know. And I’m sure we’re both happy with that. Basically, they didn’t want to work with me nor did the show want to work with me to see if something could happen. And I begrudgingly tried to make it happen, even though I didn’t really want to do it. There’s been too much water under the bridge. And so be it. I just couldn’t get up there and fake like I was having a good time.”

    I know there are many fans who are disappointed but Cetera's allowed to say no. In these case's I always say the same thing – do you want to go on a road trip with you're ex-wife? Maybe your neighbors didn't want you to break up because you were such a cute couple but they weren't living with you either and have no idea what went on in that house. There are people close to the band that know some of the stories and I've heard a few but ultimately, like a family, like a couple, there are secrets, stories, dirt that we will never know and If you've been together as long as these guys have there's lots of dirt. Music is also so competitive and Chicago was and is a big band.

    I reached out to former drummer Danny Seraphine after that “so called” Chicago documentary a few months ago and he was pissed. Was Chicago playing fair with their ex-members liked Cetera, Bill Champlin, Donnie Dacus in just making them wrong but remember as Cetera says there a lot of water under the bridge.

    I have a good relationship with my ex-wife Lynn but I'm not so sure we'd still be talking if we were in the same rock band for 50 years. At least there's sex in a marriage!

    I would love a reunion with all these guys. I respect them all. I still have all those albums and listen to them often. I remember in 1974 at 14 being pissed off at Chicago V11 that the whole album didn't sound like (I've Been) Searchin' So Long and Wishing You Were Here but then I gave the album a real shot. Opening with Seraphine's Prelude to Aire going into “Aire” by Jimmy, Walter and Danny. That was a trip and so my journey began. I bought every album before that.

    They say never meet your heroes. They can be jerks – sometimes. So can we. - by John Beaudin

    I can't believe the news today
    I can't close my eyes and make it go away.
    How long, how long must we sing this song?
    How long, how long?
    'Cos tonight
    We can be as one, tonight.

    Broken bottles under children's feet
    Bodies strewn across the dead-end street.
    But I won't heed the battle call
    It puts my back up, puts my back up against the wall.

    Sunday, bloody Sunday.
    Sunday, bloody Sunday.
    Sunday, bloody Sunday.
    Sunday, bloody Sunday.
    Oh, let's go.

    And the battle's just begun
    There's many lost, but tell me who has won?
    The trenches dug within our hearts
    And mothers, children, brothers, sisters
    Torn apart.

    Sunday, bloody Sunday.
    Sunday, bloody Sunday.

    How long, how long must we sing this song?
    How long, how long?
    'Cos tonight
    We can be as one, tonight.
    Sunday, bloody Sunday.
    Sunday, bloody Sunday.

    Wipe the tears from your eyes
    Wipe your tears away.
    I'll wipe your tears away.
    I'll wipe your tears away.
    I'll wipe your bloodshot eyes.
    Sunday, bloody Sunday.
    Sunday, bloody Sunday.

    And it's true we are immune
    When fact is fiction and TV reality.
    And today the millions cry
    We eat and drink while tomorrow they die.

    The real battle just begun
    To claim the victory Jesus won

    Sunday, bloody Sunday
    Sunday, bloody Sunday.

  • “1968” exhibit at CHICAGO HISTORY MUSEUM + a “CHICAGO SEED” bonus


    The 1968 exhibit ran from October 4, 2014 through January 5, 2015 in Chicago.
    “Seed was an underground newspaper launched by artist Don Lewis and Earl Segal (aka the Mole), owner of the Molehole, a local poster shop, and published biweekly in Chicago, Illinois from May 1967 to 1974; there were 121 issues published in all. Disagreements between Lewis and Segal led to its purchase by Harry Dewar, a graphic designer and Colin Pearlson, a photographer, who thought it had commercial potential. Lester Dore took over the art direction when Don Lewis moved to New York to work for Screw magazine. Skeets Millard, a young photographer and community organizer who was publishing the Chicago edition of Kaleidoscope, joined the Seed staff in 1969, at a time when all of the original founders were gone and there was no one working on the paper who had been there more than 12 months; Mike Abrahamson was running the paper in Abe Peck's absence. Jim Roslof, Karl Heinz-Meschbach, Paul Zmiewski, Skip Williamson, Jay Lynch, Peter Solt, and other 60s artists contributed to what was called one of the most beautiful underground press publications of its time.

    The Seed was edited for several years by Abe Peck. Among the staff writers were Marshall Rosenthal and Eliot Wald. It was notable for its colorful psychedelic graphics and its eclectic, non-doctrinaire radical politics, and was a member of the Underground Press Syndicate. It was a real DIY operation: in the Seed office copy was set on an IBM Selectric and pasted up, negatives were made and stripped up for plate-making, and inks were mixed to take to the printer. The Seed, along with the San Francisco Oracle, was one of the first tabloid newspapers to use split fount inking on a web press. At its peak it circulated between 30 and 40,000 copies, with national distribution. Important events covered by Seed writers and artists were the trial of the Chicago Eight, Woodstock, and the murder of Fred Hampton. After losing its original printer in 1968 it was printed for a time on the presses of liberal Wisconsin newspaper publisher Bill Schanen, who provided printing services for a large number of Midwestern underground papers that could find no other printer.”

    The Chicago History Museum on January 30, 2014 hosted a panel discussion about the history of CHICAGO HOUSE MUSIC. A video of excerpts from that presentation is also on YouTube channel TheMotionDevotion.

    Pass before my eyes a curiosity

    Dust in the wind
    All they are is dust in the wind

    Same old song
    Just a drop of water in an endless sea
    All we do
    Crumbles to the ground though we refuse to see

    Dust in the wind
    All we are is dust in the wind

    Now don't hang on
    Nothing lasts forever but the Earth and Sky
    It slips away
    And all your money won't another minute buy

  • Harvard Lecture #2: ‘Breaking The Rules’


  • See what critics are saying about Verdis NABUCCO at Lyric Opera of Chicago Now through February 12


    Politics. Religion. A dangerous love triangle. Plus two killer roles and some of the greatest choral music ever written, including the soul-stirring Va, pensiero chorus. The ensembles are as thrilling as the arias in the opera that made Verdi a star!
    On one side, the fiery Hebrew priest Zaccaria, battling to lead his people from oppression. On the other, Nabucco, the tyrannical Babylonian king and his adopted daughter Abigaille, who will stop at nothing to get her father's throne and her sister's lover.
    Željko Lučić (Lyric's riveting Rigoletto in 2013) is Nabucco, a role compared to Shakespeare's King Lear in its majestic sweep. This is Verdi’s first great role for baritone! Experience Nabucco’s journey from despised despot to self-proclaimed god -- and then from paranoid madman to grateful father redeemed by faith. And watch as dramatic-soprano phenom Tatiana Serjan eats up the stage as the warrior princess Abigaille, worthy sister to Lady Macbeth in her lust for power. There’s no leading lady in opera more formidable than Abigaille, who sails up to blockbusting high Cs at the slightest provocation! Russian’s mighty Dmitry Belosselskiy is Zaccaria, one of Verdi’s few roles for a truly virtuoso bass. And velvet-voiced Elizabeth DeShong is Nabucco’s gentle daughter Fenena, whose sweet, soulful music is the perfect contrast to the fiery Abigaille!

  • M.A.K.U SoundSystem - Happy Hour


    M.A.K.U. Soundsystem: Mezcla
    Order here:
    Release date: May 27th, 2016
    Glitterbeat Records

    M.A.K.U Soundsystem’s Mezcla is Out May 27th on Glitterbeat Records

    The immigrant experience is an opportunity to create, to find a voice that speaks loud and proud, to connect past and future. A chance to make history. That’s what the eight-piece M.A.K.U. Soundsystem does on their fourth album, Mezcla (‘Mix’). Through the eyes and ears of Colombians who’ve arrived and made their homes in New York City, it is, in every way, a mix, an invitation to think and to dance.

    The band passionately elaborates, “The immigrant experience is complex. Though reasons and conditions for migrating vary greatly (modes of transportation, access to resources and language, fear of violence, health, etc.), one thing we can certainly say is that it is a life-changing, identity-shaping experience. As a group of curious and creative people, our immigrant experience manifests itself through the playful exploration of our musical roots and cultural heritage, while making commentary on our day to day realities, inevitably reflecting our times. For the past several years, M.A.K.U Soundsystem has come together week after week to practice communicating in multiple ways; musically, culturally, politically, and straight-up emotionally growing closer as we continue to develop a shared language. It’s not always a tight groove, but the point of our mixing is not to become homogenous. Our album “Mezcla” is about us coming together through and with our differences, to create a musical experience where we can all be truly present as unique and essential elements of that mix.”

    Mezcla is a relentlessly honest record. The music hits the feet and the hips, powerful and overwhelming, while the lyrics reflect the lives the band members live. There’s the giddy flirtation of a summer Saturday night on ‘Haitiana’ and the thought that comes from looking around somewhere so different and asking ‘What Do You Wish For.’ But it also embraces darker political questions that don’t have easy answers. The opening track, ‘Agua,’ for instance, wonders why some people own the seeds that should be for everyone – who are those who have and who are the dispossessed? And ‘De Barrio,’ the warm, inviting waltz that closes the disc, examines the journey so many coming from Latin America to the US undertake.

    M.A.K.U. Soundsystem is a powerhouse that’s been built over years of rehearsals and gigs, criss-crossing America from the Lincoln Center Outdoors -in their adopted hometown of New York- to Chicago, Los Angeles, Toronto, Canada and around the globe to the Roskilde Festival in Denmark and onto the Atlantic Music Expo in Cape Verde. Everywhere they’ve won over friends: a storming appearance at globalFEST saw the band awarded a touring fund, while new outlets have kept heaping praise on them.

    Mezcla is a statement, an embrace. Think and dance. A way forward delivered with the urgency that’s become a hallmark of M.A.K.U. Soundsystem. It captures the live sound of the band, that thrilling rawness where the rough edges become a vital part of the whole, plenty of freedom but with the tightness honed by night after night of gigs.

    It’s passionate and blazing, turning from anger to tenderness, to endurance and hope. M.A.K.U. Soundsystem is the modern immigrant experience in a microcosm – and it’s not so different from all the generations that have gone before. People carrying their own mix of the past and the present, the old and the new, tradition and modernity. Mezcla reflects the lives they’re building.

    “We try to keep it human,” Ospina says. “To give people something they can relate to.”

    To think and dance.

  • politics and the blues - a brief introduction


    One common misconception about blues music is that it is fundamentally apolitical--that it steers clear, for example, of commenting on presidents, governors, political parties, and the like. This video discusses a handful of political blues and explores the reasons why the black southerners who created blues music felt the need to signify on, or in some cases comment directly on, matters of civic and political importance.

    This video begins by briefly addressing the controversy provoked by another, recently uploaded video entitled all my people are immigrants - an American apologizes for the behavior of our president, and by talking about the long-term goals of this blues harmonica channel.

    Gussow reads excerpts from two books by Dutch blues scholar Guido van Rijn: THE TRUMAN AND EISENHOWER BLUES and KENNEDY'S BLUES.

    With Adam Gussow of Modern Blues Harmonica

    REST IN PEACE : Frankie Knuckles
    January 18, 1955 - March 31, 2014

    This video was recorded on January 30, 2014 at the Chicago History Museum's ( presentation of The House That Chicago Built sub-titled Explore Chicago's role in the birth and impact of House Music and its relationship to the LGBTQ community. ( LGBTQ stands for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender & questioning. )

    The panel members were:

    Monica Hairston O'Connell - panel moderator and Executive Director of Columbia College's Center for Black Music Research

    Robert Williams - founder of the original Warehouse nightclub on Jefferson Street in Chicago

    Alan King - one of Chicago's original house music DJs and an early member of the legendary DJ crew The Chosen Few

    Derrick Carter - a house music producer and DJ from Chicago

    Micah Salkind - a historian from Brown University

  • Ride On By Phil Coulter Piano And Orchestral


    Ride On is an album by Irish folk singer Christy Moore, released in 1984. Its title track remains one of his most popular songs. A number of songs relate the actions of those involved in political struggles, or those affected by those struggles; such as Viva la Quinte Brigada which is concerned with the Irish contingent amongst the International Brigade in the Spanish Civil War; or El Salvador dealing with the civil war in that country in the 1980s. Other songs deal with Irish history – The City of Chicago, about emigration to America during the Irish famines of the late 1840s; Back Home in Derry written by Bobby Sands about the transportation to Australia of convicts; and Lisdoonvarna celebrating a music festival that took place annually in that town until the early 1980s.

    Ride On Christy Moore 1984

    True you ride the finest horse I've ever seen
    Standing sixteen one or two with eyes wild and green
    You ride the horse so well hands light to the touch
    I could never go with you no matter how I wanted to

    Ride on, see you
    I could never go with you no matter how I wanted to
    Ride on, see you
    I could never go with you no matter how I wanted to

    When you ride into the night without a trace behind
    Run your claw along my gut, one last time
    I turn to face an empty space, where you used to lie
    And look for a spark that lights the night
    Through a teardrop in my eye

    Ride on, see you
    I could never go with you no matter how I wanted to
    Ride on, see you
    I could never go with you no matter how I wanted to

  • Madden: Indianapolis Colts vs Chicago Bears


    I have been working on a paper for the Education Market.
    The paper talks about using video games as a teaching tool for
    children with learning disabilities.

    The age demographic would be 8 to 18. Games could be up to the teacher or student to chose. Games might include soccer, football, basketball, etc.

    Students could learn about various historical or fictional characters and create them as players for their team. It would allow the student to study history, philosophy, religion, sports, popular culture, etc. and then create the characters to be a part of their team. The students would even be able to play along side their created characters.

    In this example I used PS4 Madden 17. On some of the teams historical figures like Martin Luther King, and Abraham Lincoln will play on the same team with authors like Ernest Hemingway and William Shakespeare, or Elvis Presley and Tupac Shakur.

    The process is meant to be a simple and fun way for kids to learn
    subjects such as world history, literature, poetry, art, music, science and vocabulary.

    Maybe PS4/XBOX machines might be donated or discounted to schools for these classes. More on the paper as it is fleshed out. Enjoy the simulations.

  • Wozzeck, A Conversation with Sir David McVicar


    Alban Berg’s classic opera – Wozzeck – still has the power to take your breath away. Sir David McVicar brings a new creative vision to the Lyric Opera of Chicago this November. Wozzeck has long been treated as an expressionist masterpiece, but McVicar and the extraordinary team at the Lyric have put the opera back in its context – as a product and expression of the political chaos and despair following World War I. McVicar and Lyric’s general director, Anthony Freud will provide a preview of this powerful interpretation.

    This program is presented in partnership with Lyric Unlimited.

    This program was recorded on October 30, 2015 as part of the 26th annual Chicago Humanities Festival, Citizens:

  • Big Trouble in Journey After 3 Members visit White House : Schon Not Happy


    Guitarist and founding member of the band Neal Schon posted a story from The Hill covering Journey's
    Jonathan Cain and wife Paula White who is Pentecostal Christian televangelist and also an religious adviser to President Trump, visiting the white house. The also posted a picture of the pair with Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders. Then we say pictures of two other members lead singer Arnel Pineda and bassist Ross Valory also at the meeting.

    Schon posted the following statement on his Facebook page: “Wow this is not the Journey I started in 1972 and have been fighting to protect since the beginning. I've discussed this many times with Management and council and they both agreed that there should never be anything to do with religious beliefs or politics with Journey. I do not want anyone to think my wife and I are affiliated in anyway with this at all. I've been fighting to protect for the last 2 years. This is Not Me or my wife.”

    Politics has been in rock forever. Everyone talks politics We've all seen the comments, 'musicians should stick to music.” But many folk say that only when the musician a opposes political opinion and music has been political forever. My plumber, my barber everyone I know talks work.

    Sure I know the arguments about their First Amendment freedom of speech, religion, press etc... but the Trump Presidency is a whole other level. This is no ordinary political fight. This is more than a line. It's a deep vacuous hole that making folks I think folks who otherwise would never get political are going there. Whether you like Trump or not it's not debatable that he's an extremely polarizing figure. He's a divider. It's like someone who says I could never kill someone but if that someone kills your kid that argument changes. Schon does not like politics and sure by posting this he's turning it into a political argument. He's obviously not a Trump fan. Cain, Pineda and Valory have the right to visit the White House but that's gotta hurt. I would be pissed off. I have family members who are Trump supporters. They are more than allowed but I refuse to talk to them about politics. My best friend is a huge Trump fan but if we talk politics it turns into a shouting match.

    Let's remember how difficult it was to get musicians to perform at Trump's inauguration. Now Schon is watching three members of his band hanging with the Republicans. In any other administration I don't think Schon would feel this way but Trump is a different animal and if Schon doesn't say something he might come across as a supported since the headline read “Members of Journey.” It's sad that this is all happening in public but it almost has to.

    In 1984 Schon was asked about the Sociopolitical scene in San Francisco and whether it had any effect on music? The guitarist said, “music is the savior of all that crap. I'm not really into politics. It take people away from something that would make them much happier, Music is something that saves people from going crazy.”

    The Latin American & Latino Studies Program at UIC is proud to be celebrating 40 years of academic achievement and community advocacy. None of this would have been possible without the student activism that took place in the early 1970's throughout high schools and university campuses across the United States. The struggle that it took to create the Latin American & Latino Studies program at UIC is a struggle that built bridges among different ethnic and community groups and continues to prevail. Join us as we celebrate the legacy of these students and congratulate the visionaries who continue to advocate for programs like Latino Studies in higher education today. We kick off the celebration on October 29 with a fundraiser for the newly established LALS Student Scholarship Fund at the National Museum of Mexican Art with the event From Vision to Legacy featuring music and presentations on the history and future vision of LALS.
