WEST COAST CHICAGO
West Coast Chicago is a group of musicians who share a mutual admiration of Chicago . The band was formed under the leadership of Paul Clarke inspired by Greg Farrugia. Paul’s in-depth knowledge of virtually every last detail of Chicago is encyclopedic. He knows who wrote what, who produced what,who replaced who, and every musical detail. Each player is dedicated to recreating the sound, energy and intensity of each and every song, and between song groupings, Paul enthusiastically recounts interesting facts and trivia that make West Coast Chicago interesting and informative as well as hugely entertaining.
