About Danny Seraphine’s Take Me Back to Chicago Tour

Most great musicians are lucky if they get the opportunity to play in one spectacular band in a lifetime.  And that’s what legendary drummer and founding member of Chicago Danny Seraphine thought when his tenure with that group came to a sudden end in 1990. After those wonderful 23 years, he put aside his drums, figuring he would never find that magic again.

But a benefit show brought him out of his seclusion in 2006 and awakened in him his passion for playing music again. Shortly thereafter CTA – California Transit Authority – was born when Seraphine teamed up with guitarist Marc Bonilla and they began crafting the perfect band.

“I’m playing with world-class musicians who grew up with Chicago’s music so we play it with the respect, integrity, intensity and fire reminiscent of the original CTA,” Seraphine asserts. “All this while still maintaining our own identity.”

With CTA, Seraphine knows he’s one of the fortunate few to experience musical magic twice.

Look for Seraphine and CTA to bring all Chicago’s classics to life, including “25 or 6 to 4,” “Beginnings,” “Make Me Smile,” “Saturday in the Park,” “Does Anybody Really Know What Time It Is?” “Feelin’ Stronger Every Day,” “Hard to Say I’m Sorry” and “You’re the Inspiration.”
