Home grown Windy City band Chicago brought its hit-filled show to Silver Creek Event Center at Four Winds Casino in New Buffalo, Mich. on Aug. 26.

The band, which is still blending a splendid dose of brass and rock, played to a full house of fans who were out of their seats and dancing throughout the whole concert.

While the band is currently working on a new album, the latest concert tour is dedicated to a focus on signature Chicago classics. The group's recent two-disc bestselling album "The Very Best of Chicago, Only the Beginning" reached Number 1 on the spring on Billboard's Catalog Chart and on the Digital Catalog Chart. It also hit Number 20 on the Billboard Top 200 Albums proving that Chicago favorites are still beloved by the generations.

During the Four Winds show, fans were treated to performances of a great deal of the biggest hits going back to Chicago's start in the late '60s.

Show highlights included "Saturday in the Park," "Does Anybody Really Know What Time It Is?," the ballad "Color My World," rocker "I'm a Man," and "Beginnings."

The group performed a no-holds barred version of classic "25 or 6 to 4" in which the strong brass section sizzled. Group members Lee Loughnane on trumpet, James Pankow on trombone, and Walt Parazaider on woodwinds, remain a powerhouse trio who always look like they're having, quite literally, a blast.
