"Get It On"
Chase was formed by Bill Chase who was already a well-established lead trumpet player when he decided to form his own band. He recruited three other veteran trumpet players and vocalist Terry Richards, backed them with a rock rhythm section, and created a band which merged both jazz and rock styles. The album was recorded in Chicago in November and early December 1970 and released in April 1971.
The single "Get It On" spent thirteen weeks on the Billboard Hot 100 chart starting in May 1971, eventually peaking at #24 in July of that year. This success drove album sales to more than 400,000 units - unusually high for a jazz artist. The album charted for a total of 26 weeks, peaking at #22.
The band Tynan is an 10 piece horn driven party rock band.....that's right, NO need for back trax or lip sync with this band, we are 100% live!!! Concentrating on horn driven songs from the 60's and 70's, Tynan performs crowd favorites from bands like Chicago, the Blues Brothers, Joe Cocker, Motown Favorites, along with originals off their new CD Shirley Jeanne just to name a few. Tynan has been performing at fests, concert halls, and clubs all over the Midwest and is becoming Chicagolands #1 Choice for fests because of their high energy show and appeal to all age groups. Please feel free to post comments, questions, pictures (band and fans), videos, events, and stories about shows.
Thanks to everyone for your support, and we hope that we can continue on for many years to come!
