With World Class vocals, musicianship, & a multitude of solid gold hits, BLOOD SWEAT & TEARS (BST) is at the top of their game.
It has been five decades since drummer/producer Bobby Colomby and friends assembled the first group to successfully fuse rock, blues, pop music, horn arrangements and jazz improvisation into a hybrid that came to be known as “jazz-rock.” The band’s second album, “Blood, Sweat & Tears,” topped the Billboard charts for many weeks and beat out the Beatles’ “Abbey Road” for the prestigious Album of the Year Grammy award. That album produced three major hit singles: “You Made me so Very Happy,” “Spinning Wheel,” and “And When I Die.” Other memorable hits include “Hi-De-Ho,” “Lucretia MacEvil,” and “God Bless the Child.”
“I believe BS&T has an iconic stature. It’s a style of music,” says Colomby. “A concept that people are coming to see, along with songs that they’re familiar with.” They have won Gold Records, Grammy Awards, the respect of the best in the industry & the love of millions of fans.
