Flamboyant founding drummer for mega group “Chicago” (Chicago Transit Authority), Danny Seraphine, is the leader of CTA! Danny was with Chicago through album # 15. CTA is an incredible 8-piece band that includes a full horn section. They play many Chicago hits as well as some newer music. If you love Chicago, this is the show for you.
Danny Seraphine has been recognized as one of the world's most highly-respected and influential jazz-rock/rock drummers of all-time. He was one of the architects of the band ‘Chicago Transit Authority’, soon after known simply as ‘Chicago’. Not only was he rated by the legendary Buddy Rich as one of his favorite young drummers, but Danny also earned a rank on Rolling Stone’s “All-time Top 100 Drummers”. Following his departure from ‘Chicago’, he went on to produce recording artists, Broadway and off-Broadway shows, and an independent movie and soundtrack.
In 2006, he formed his new band CTA (California Transit Authority) which he continues to tour and record with today while carrying on the jazz/rock legacy Chicago Transit Authority started in 1969. Danny recently received the “Lifetime Achievement Award” at the Cape Breton Drum Festival and was recognized for “Songwriting of the Year” in respect of his songwriting contributions as a co-writer for Pitbull’s “I Know You Want Me” by ASCAP (American Society of Composers, Authors, and Publishers) during the 27th Annual ASCAP Pop Music Awards.
