Posted: August 12, 2014

Chicago, one of the most successful bands of all time, has been announced as the entertainment at the 2014 Wine Spectator New York Wine Experience, Oct. 16–18 at the New York Marriott Marquis. The chart-topping "rock band with horns," whose hits include "Saturday in the Park," "If You Leave Me Now," "25 or 6 to 4," and many more, was Billboard's No. 1 singles charting group of the 1970s and, over the course of nearly 50 years, has sold more than 100 million records, with five No. 1 albums and 21 Top 10 singles. The band released its 36th album, Now, in July. Chicago will perform at this year's Grand Award Banquet.
