A few years back, a Chicago tribute band emerged from Russia/Ukraine via Youtube, that recreates the original sound, magic, energy, of early Chicago. The band are called Leonid and Friends (L&F) and their bandmembers can play. Guitarist Sergey Kashirin somehow channels Terry in his playing style, and sound.
Leonid and Friends have already toured the USA three times – in 2019. 64 shows in all to packed audiences. A 2020 tour has been announced for June, July, & August.
