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. Vasilli Akimov channels Terrys soulful voice.
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.
Update April 24, 2021: A sad day for Fans of Leonid and Friends as their guitar vocalist Sergey Kashirin who demonstrates all the attributes of Terry, is moving on with his career. We will miss you.
