“musical mixture of classical, jazz, and rock” – AllMusic


No one can argue Blood, Sweat & Tears invented a new style of music. BS&T 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 thrown in for good measure.

The first version of the band, in the late sixties, would practice in a loft in New York’s Greenwich Village. Crowds would gather on the street below and applaud between songs! Founding member and drummer Bobby Colomby knew they had hit on something special. Since then, the band has never stopped touring for over fifty years.

The first Blood, Sweat & Tears album, Child is Father to the Man, was released to little fanfare. After the band member changes (notably replacing the lead singer), the second album, Blood Sweat & Tears, was a success. It rose to the top of the charts for seven weeks and yielded three top 5 singles. The album received the Grammy for Album of the Year in 1970, beating out the Beatles’ Abbey Road. That album went on to earn quadruple Platinum status, with sales of well over 4 million units and induction into the Grammy Hall of Fame. In total, the band has received ten Grammy nominations, winning three. 

Blood Sweat & Tears performed on Sunday, August 17, 1969, at Woodstock, the same day as Jimi Hendrix and other great bands.

Blood Sweat & Tears has had many configurations over its fifty-plus years of touring but one thing for sure is that the music is timeless, and fans are never disappointed. BS&T tours with the greatest musicians available, stars in their own right (most coming off major tours with other artists). 

To this day Bobby Colomby still hand-picks the musicians for every tour. Colomby still uses the same theory: “Great Musicians Make Great Music”.

Recommended for Fans of Chicago, Tower of Power, Earth, Wind & Fire and Average White Band.
