The “rock and roll band with horns”, Chicago, fired up the house at Austin City Limits Live at the Moody Theater on August 6. The legendary group brought absolute bliss to their audience as they proceeded through their set list of classic songs from their 21 studio albums. A party atmosphere prevailed as the audience clapped, tapped and sang to many of their favorites including “Does Anybody Really Know What Time It Is?,” “If You Leave Me Now,” “Beginnings,” “Street Player,” and the always energetic “25 or 6 to 4.”

The band is comprised of some of the best in the business including founding member’s vocalist/keyboardist Robert Lamm, trumpeter Lee Loughnane, woodwindist Walter Parazaider, and trombonist James Pankow as well as vocalist/keyboardist Lou Pardini, drummer Tris Imboden, lead guitarist Keith Howland, and bassist/vocalist Jason Scheff.
