Are You Dense Music Fest 2014June 28, 2014
In the 70s, a band named Chicago blew out of the windy city to dominate the pop charts. Back then, a horn band was a new idea, and the adventurous spirit and musicality of those early Chicago recordings have never been matched…Until now!
Say hello to Danny Seraphine and California Transit Authority (CTA), a blazing band based in LA and fueled by the creative passion and pure percussive power of the original Chicago drummer Danny Seraphine. CTA is all about a man, a band and a mission built on Danny's love of blazing brass, funk and searing guitars. With the release of Sacred Ground, CTA accomplishes that mission and a whole lot more! Danny co-wrote some of Chicago's biggest hits and will play them along with powerful songs from CTA's catalogue.
Other performers scheduled to appear:
- Larry Braggs, former Tower of Power lead singer, who will perform alongside Danny Seraphine and the California Transit Authority
- The Vincent Ingala Band, starring Connecticut's own Vincent Ingala, an ever increasing presence on the smooth jazz circuit who has performed
as a solo artist all over the world. A featured artist on the Dave Koz & Friends Jazz Cruises and voted "Breakthrough Artist of 2013 by Sirius XM Watercolors," Ingala's show is a must-see for all smooth Jazz lovers and may be his last CT performance for quite a while.
