Dennis Tufano and 25 or 6 to 4 with Danny Seraphine
Jeuck Auditorium, St. Viator High School
Arlington Heights, Ill., December 1, 2012

Review by Joe Pesole

Take Me Back to Chicago and Lay My Soul to Rest.....This monster hit for the group Chicago was in good hands last Saturday. Dennis Tufano, backed up by 25 or 6 to 4 (the top Chicago cover band) really delivered. It was as if Dennis had the song written for him. Cause My Life Was so Much Simpler Then. Street Corners and Tastee Freeze.... Due to a hectic schedule, this was the first hometown appearance of 2012 for Dennis and his first time doing Chicago hits on stage. The talented and tight 25 or 6 to 4, accompanied by the original Chicago drummer and co-founder Danny Seraphine did the heavy lifting as Dennis sang lead on 3 Chicago hits, Saturday in the Park, Beginnings, Take Me Back to Chicago, and co-lead on the rousing I'm a Man.

Dennis is the true consummate, and professional entertainer, and always a treat to watch on stage. He commands attention as he glides and strides across the stage, while simultaneously glancing at the screen which displayed iconic images of Chicagoland neighborhoods in the 1960s. Vintage Buckinghams' clips from 1966-1967 filled the screen as Dennis worked 5 of the group's biggest hits into the set. The first one being Kind of a Drag. It was Mr. Tufano's gift to his audience. What a treat.

Thanks Dennis. You are sure to pack'em in next time around too!
