The band would like to welcome in Pat Bush, keyboard player and vocalist from the band Remedy. Pat was originally secured as a backup for the band but when our keyboard player position was left vacant, he expressed an interest in becoming a full-time part of the band. Pat's extensive music experience along with his great talent will add just the right touch to our band. Look for Pat to make his SOS debut at the November 3rd show at The Scottish Rites Theater.

The video shoot from Monday night August 2, 2010 was a big success. With a crowed of 95 invited guests the bands performance was riveting to say the least. Many of those on hand said that they thought they were listening to the real band "Chicago". In fact, a teenager who was with their parent turn to the parent and asked,” Dad, is this the real band that plays these songs". That compliment and many others that the band received that night was all they needed to feel that the night was a huge success. Look for the bands future plans to be performing in late September> Thank you for all the support from our families, friends and fans. Without you, this wouldn't be as fun!
November: Scottish Rite Theater a BIG Success
The night at The Scottish Rite Auditorium was one of the best performances by both bands. The crowed loved the show as the fans were dancing in the isles. We look forward to another performance at the Scottish Rite and thank all who supported the theater and the band.
February 9th: Eden Lounge at Harrahs in Atlantic City

Jim had to make one of the hardest choices for a musician to make and step away from the band due to health reasons. We all admire Jim for making such a tough choice, but we do understand. Jim has been an interictal part of the Chicago 9 Tribute band with his incredible talents on both Bass Guitar and his awesome vocal range, he will be hard to replace.

Good luck Jim in life and we all wish you many years of health, happiness and success, you are a class act. It was our pleasure Jim, you will be missed by all!
