How to Hire CHICAGO For Your Event!
Chicago is an American rock band formed in
Chicago, Illinois, in 1967.
The group began calling themselves the Chicago
Transit Authority in 1968, then shortened the name in 1969. Self-described as a
"rock and roll band with horns", Chicago's songs often combine elements of
classical music, jazz, R&B, and pop music.
Peter Cetera, Robert Lamm, and James Pankow were elected to the
Songwriters Hall of Fame for their songwriting efforts as members of the music
group. Chicago received a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award on October 16, 2020.
Hire Chicago to entertain a company's special event!
Chicago's first self-titled album sold more than two million copies and spawned four chart singles, beginning a
string of massive hits that lasted to the end of the decade, with each album cover sporting a variation on the Chicago logo and a
sequential title with a roman numeral: Chicago II, Chicago III, etc. Chicago's
music was a combination of many varying styles, from hard rock to light pop, and often included elements of jazz and classical.
Peter Cetera's gold-selling #1 hit in 1976, "If You Leave Me Now," the group became more identified with romantic ballads than anything else. Chicago went into decline after a split with Guercio in 1977 and the accidental death of Kath in 1978, but it quickly rebounded in 1982 with "Hard to Say I'm Sorry" and the million-selling "Chicago 16," and was
able to sustain its renewed popularity despite
Peter Cetera's departure for a solo career in 1985.
Hit songs include --
- Call On Me
- Hard To Say I'm Sorry
- Here In My Heart
- If You Leave Me Now
- Look Away
- Wishing You Were Here
- You're The Inspiration
- Another Rainy Day In New York City

HOW MUCH DOES IT COST TO BOOK/HIRE CHICAGO?
Official booking fees for CHICAGO, or any other celebrity, are
determined based on a number of factors and may change at anytime without prior
(i.e., what is the booking fee to hire CHICAGO for an event?)
(i.e., what is CHICAGO booking fee to perform at an event?)
Factors influencing pricing vary and may include date, location, type of
event, whether a private party or a public concert, the artist's calendar,
whether the artist is on tour or not, how well tickets are selling at the
artist's concerts, the current demand for the artist's music, market activity, etc.
As you might expect, the more in-demand the artist is, the more buyers are
prepared to pay. Of course, this causes the artist's price to increase as
the artist becomes more popular or decrease when becoming less popular.
Exclusive agents with exclusive representation frequently quote a
range instead of a specific price, since changes can occur at anytime.
artist's manager has a role in the decision to accept any
particular offer from a talent buyer.
