“Grammy Award” winning singer/songwriter, Peter Cetera has had two distinct musical careers.

From 1968 thru 1986 Peter was the singer, songwriter, and bass player for the legendary rock group “Chicago”. In his time with the group, they recorded 18 of the most memorable albums of a generation, including such hits as “If You Leave Me Now”, “Hard to Say I’m Sorry”, “Baby What a Big Surprise”, “You’re the Inspiration”, “Stay the Night”, “Love Me Tomorrow”, “Happy Man”, “Feeling Stronger Every Day” and “Along Comes a Woman”.

A solo artist since 1986, Peter has recorded 10 time-honored CD’s including his #1 hits, the Academy Award nominated song “The Glory of Love” from the hit movie “The Karate Kid II”, “The Next Time I Fall” with Amy Grant, “Feels Like Heaven” with Chaka Kahn”, “After All” with Cher from the motion picture “Chances Are”, “No Explanation” from the mega hit film, “Pretty Woman” and the unforgettable “Restless Heart”.

Peter is currently touring with his 7 piece electric band, “The Bad Daddy’s” and still enjoys performing his timeless hits which continue to touch the lives of so many people worldwide. He also appears in other musical formats including his much acclaimed “Symphony Show” for the larger venues and a smaller “String Quartet” version for smaller intimate affairs.


It’s been more than four decades since Blood, Sweat & Tears came on the music scene successfully blending rock, fusion and jazz into the unique style the group has been known for throughout the years. With their trademark sound featuring an incredible horn section, multiple Billboard top 40 hits would follow including such hits like “When I Die,” “God Bless The Child,” “Hi-De-Ho,” “You’ve Made Me So Very Happy,” and the classic hit “Spinning Wheel”, which helped give B,S & T their first GRAMMY award with “Album of the Year”. Throughout the years, B, S & T has evolved keeping the legacy and music alive while introducing the music to a whole new generation. Heading up the group is American Idol season 4 runner-up Bo Bice who is garnering rave reviews wherever they perform.
