Leonid & Friends: The Music of Chicago
Saturday, June 17th • 7:30 PM
Day Of Show
With multiple sold-out U.S. tours under its belt and hundreds of thousands of fans around the world, Leonid & Friends continues to astound its global audience with its uncanny ability to capture the spirit, musicality, and fire of American supergroup Chicago.
And what is even more stunning is that Leonid & Friends, comprised of 11 of the finest musicians in Russia, Ukraine, Moldova, and Belarus, haven’t seen Chicago perform live, yet replicates the band’s complex arrangements amazingly note for note.
“Chicago has never been in Russia, and none of us have attended their concerts” said Leonid Vorobyev, a multi-instrumentalist who is the band’s leader. “We have only recordings and videos to help us learn Chicago songs” Leonid’s goal was a studio project in dedication to Chicago under the motto “musicians for musicians”. Their first video went viral, but they really gained traction when Chicago itself published the video on its official website. They have since expanded their repertoire to include Earth Wind & Fire, Blood Sweat and Tears, Ides of March, Stevie Wonder, Steely Dan, Deep Purple, and new original material.
This incredible 11-piece band now has over 700,000 followers across social media, an astonishing 150 million+ video views, and over 200 successful US shows under their belt. The future is only looking up for Leonid and Friends.
