Introduction
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.

Caproni Gonzalis
Marty Caproni Picture many of the best comics of our generation quietly toiled away for years and years in relative obscurity before becoming so undeniable onstage that people had no choice but to notice them. Not obsessed with self-promotion, TV, Twitter followers or anything other than becoming the best and most capable stand up comedian onstage that they could become. Forged like hot iron, in the fires of nightmare bar shows, late shows and elks lodges..and then polished and shined in comedy clubs...they became ready for bigger stages and brighter lights. The accolades and adoration came after....a seemingly necessary byproduct of the hard work and singular dedication to the craft of stand up comedy. During those early days, some lucky folks were able to witness their development and come along for the ride

Rafi Gonzalez is one of the fastest rising and highly sought after comedians in the New England area and beyond. With a background as a nationally touring singer in a rock band, Gonzalez had no problem transitioning his command of the stage into the comedy world. Originally from Puerto Rico, Rafi uses his experiences growing up with clashing cultures to consistently engage and entertain crowds of all ages and facets of life.
