The Chicago Experience is just as it sounds – a group of musicians who call Chicago home and share a love for the music of one of the greatest rock and roll bands of all time: Chicago. Together, the band recreates the sound and feel of Chicago’s music, whose hit songs have touched generations of fans. Come on out for this Downtown Alive! concert and relive memories of Chicago’s music that captured everyone’s hearts – from early hits like “Beginnings” and “Does Anybody Really Know What Time It Is?” to “Hard To Say I’m Sorry” and “You’re The Inspiration.” It doesn’t get much better than a RiverEdge Park summer night, sitting next to the Fox River with a cold beverage in hand, listening to some of the most famous tunes of our time – and for only $3 (just $1 if you buy tickets by May 31!).
