Blood Sweat & Tears

April 23, 2023

Sidney High School Auditorium              General Admission  $45.00                AAA Members $42.00

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 just for good measure. 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 has never stopped touring for over 50 years..

Blood Sweat & Tears performed on Sunday, August 17, 1969, at Woodstock the same day as Jimi Hendrix among other great bands and 50 years later at Bethel Woods, NY the site of Woodstock 2019. Blood Sweat & Tears has had many firsts. The are the first rock band to tour behind the former Iron Curtain and the first rock band to play Las Vegas. Blood Sweat & Tears has had many configurations over its 50 plus years of touring but one thing for sure is that the music is timeless, and fans are never disappointed.

The band members are always looking to inspire the next generation of musicians so don’t be shy to walk up and talk to them. They take young musicians and prepare them for life in the music industry. We are proud of the fact that over the past 50 years the majority of musicians that have passed through BS&T have gone on to fame as players, producers, arrangers, and solo performers more than any other band on the planet. BS&T still headlines jazz festivals all over the world. BS&T only performs about 60 shows a year so it’s a rare treat to see them live.
