They started in 1967
We started in 2007
Chicago Total Access is a music group made up of 10 talented musicians which all grew up listening to the music of the 60s and 70s. Our group is dedicated to the music of the American rock band Chicago. There is no other American rock-n-roll band with horns that has influenced more musicians, is loved by millions of people worldwide and has become such a deep part of Americana as the band Chicago. Since 1967, 52 years of sold out concerts, millions of record sales and legions of cheering fans worldwide Chicago is still going strong in 2019. The members of Chicago Total Access have attempted to recreate a slice of the timeless musical catalog of Chicago as well as stay true to the spirit of the original recordings. We hope you enjoy our efforts! The liner notes of their first recording titled “The Chicago Transit Authority” still inspire us and I hope you as well.
“The printed word can never aspire to document a truly musical experience, so if you must call them something, speak of the city where all save one were born; where all of them were schooled and bred, and where all of this incredible music went down barely noticed; call them CHICAGO.”
