About Windy City:
It was the Spring of 2004 that the thought of putting together a band that would pay tribute to arguably, the greatest rock band of all time, “Chicago” came about, so the idea came into fruition in the Spring of 2005 and the rest is history. “Windy City” was born and continues to play their music in front of loud, enthusiastic and big crowds to this day. “Windy City” is composed of, Arthur Compean on keyboards and some lead vocals, Humberto Cortez on trumpet, flugal horn and some lead vocals, Daniel Rodriguez on flugal horn and trumpet as well, Marc Moomaw on woodwinds, Mike Otero on trombone and congas, Isaac Gonzales on lead tenor vocals, Jaime Solorza on bass guitar and background vocals, Chuy Benitez on lead guitar and background vocals and Junie Chavez on drums, lead and background vocals.
