With world-class vocals, musicianship and vocal dynamo/pop phenomenon Bo Bice fronting the band, Blood Sweat & Tears is at the top of their game. They are the band that fused rock, blues, pop music, horn arrangements and jazz improvisation into the beautiful monster that came to be known as "jazz-rock." Bobby Columby, original founder & drummer of BS&T, has a vision for the band that remains quite simple: "Find the greatest musicians and the rest is easy." With that philosophy and hit recordings of songs by masterful songwriters such as Laura Nyro, James Taylor, The Band, and the Rolling Stones, as well as Billie Holiday, BS&T have sold tens of millions of recordings and still have a future of endless possibilities. "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." You'll hear those songs, including "Spinning Wheel," "You've Made Me So Very Happy" and "And When I Die" when BS&T takes the stage at The Rose in Pasadena.
