Blood, Sweat & Tears is not the first band to ever use a horn section, but they are the first to fuse it with rock, jazz and some blues thrown in for good measure. No one can argue they invented a new style of music.
From the first ensemble in the late sixties practicing in a loft on Bleeker Street in New York’s Greenwich Village and having crowds clapping on the street below between songs, founding member and drummer Bobby Colomby knew they were on the right course. Since then, the band hasn’t stopped touring - for over 50 years!
Blood Sweat & Tears has had many configurations over its 50 plus years of touring. BS&T is NOT a tribute band, far from it. Considered the first All Star Band before changing band members was common but one thing for sure is that the music is timeless and fans are never disappointed. BS&T tours with the greatest musicians available, stars in their own right (most coming off major tours with other artists). BS&T still headlines jazz festivals all over the world and only performs about 60 shows a year so it’s a rare treat to see them live. To this day Bobby Colomby (founding member) still handpicks the musicians for every tour. Colomby still uses the same theory: “Great Musicians Make Great Music”. Please enjoy the show!
