Upcoming Captain Blood show!

Don King and yours truly appear to be wondering when we'll get our Christmas shopping done.

Hey, folks! Just wanted to let you all know that Chicago's top 60s/early 70s band, the Captain Blood Orchestra, will be playing an exciting event on Tuesday night, February 26--yes, two weeks from now.

We're playing as part of the Chicago History Museum's "The 68 Experience," a three-part series examining the political, social, and cultural landscape of 40 years ago.

On the 26th, Terri Hemmert of WXRT will give a presentation and lead a discussion of the music of 1968, which will be followed by a full, two-set Captain Blood concert. Terri's talk starts at 7:00; come early to get a good seat. Terri's great, of course, and she always leads a good discussion.

For this gig, the four-man CBO (Steve Borgstrom, Gerry Jalove, Don King, and myself) will be joined by singer/guitarist Marla Gal, whose presence will allow us to tackle some exciting songs that we couldn't have handled before.

The Chicago History Museum's main auditorium is a great place to watch a show...and we're talking visually as well as sonically. Not only will we be in full period dress, but we will also be augmented by lava lamps and a psychedelic light show.

Tickets for this evening can be purchased at the Chicago History Museum's website and cost $15 ($12 if you're a CHM member). Come on out, shake off the winter, and share the spirit of the thrilling music of 1968--The Beatles, The Shadows of Knight, Aretha Franklin, The Status Quo, and more!! Period dress encouraged!

Here's the link for tickets. Hope to see you there.
