Introduction: the name of the first song of the first album, and the beginning of a musical legacy that spans five decades. Our project was born of a deep admiration and respect for Chicago's artists and their early music. What we hope Introduction will bring to our audience is not only the tremendous catalogue of Chicago’s music but a reminder of the times and events that shaped their lives and their writing.

Fans have compared Introduction's musical replication and energy level to the early days of Terry Kath and the now infamous albums Chicago I through X. Introduction - The Chicago Experience, pays very careful attention to every musical and vocal nuance, to deliver what is the most memorable Chicago show of ANY Chicago tribute band in the United States and Canada!

Come see Introduction and join the Chicago Experience.

Chicago began in the city of its namesake, the dream of original members. Walt Parazaider, Terry Kath, Lee Laughnane, and Danny Seraphine, sought to create a rock band with a dynamic horn section integral to the melody, a fusion of their jazz and rock roots. Sewn in Parazaider's apartment were the seeds of what would become one of rock and roll’s most enduring collaborations.

Studebaker John
Studebaker John was born in Chicago in 1952, and has lived his whole life there. An avid music fan as a youngster, he learned to play several instruments, including first the harmonica, then the drums, and in his late teens, the guitar. He came of age in the ‘60s, so was part of the rock ‘n’ roll/rock generation. John liked a lot of different music, but as a young teenager was particularly drawn to the Blues. He was influenced by the music of Jimmy Reed, Freddy King, Slim Harpo, and things like that, all mixed in with other music I listened to.” He has performed covers of his Blues heroes, but chose to develop his own voice as a songwriter.

He has returned to the music of his youth; growing up on Maxwell Street, he plays this old style of blues with authenticity and what appears to be a magnificent sense of what it is all about. Old School Rockin’ is for all the people, from the rocking blues crowd to the purists, and from the young folks just getting into it to those who’ve been listening all along.”
