Hi Friends,

After 10 years of performing together, The Chicago Authority has decided to perform two “farewell” concerts in 2023. We are beyond happy that these concerts can be held at the venues who believed in us when we were starting out a decade ago.

July 12, 2023 at Tonawandas Gateway Harbor is the first …

October 28, 2023 at Lockport’s Palace Theatre is the second.

It has been quite a ride. We’ve traveled thousands of miles to perform hundreds of shows. We’ve weathered the storms of membership changes and health issues. And we’re fortunate that we accomplished what we set out to do: Celebrate the music of Chicago.

We all have our own careers, families, and lives that are bound spiritually and physically to Western New York, so it has been an honor and a privilege to also incorporate charitable elements into our performances through the years to give something back to the people who supported us.

Every single event at which we’ve performed over the years has been an absolute BLAST, and we look back on every one with loving, joyful memories. The guys in the band have formed a brotherly bond that will never be broken, and collectively we’ve formed a bond with all of you friends and fans — so much so that we consider you to be part of our family.

Thank you SO MUCH for accepting us, for supporting us, and for helping us relive our memories of one of the best bands on the planet: Chicago.

“Let’s all get together soon, before it is too late
“Forget about the past and let your feelings fade away
“If you do I’m sure you’ll see the end is not yet near

“Where do we go
“Where do we go
“Where do we go from here?”
