    Blood, Sweat & Tears!

    I saw them last Friday at a jazz festival in Stuttgart/Germany. I thought they weren´t existing anymore. Is this a kind of "cover band"? :dontknow: Nice concert and the trumpets sounded terrific. A big guy that I first thought was Mic Gillette but wasn´t and a smaller guy with some fat high notes. Does anybody know who they were?

    Tower of Power, Blood Sweat and Tears, Lighthouse (Canadian group), Earth Wind & Fire

    As for Blood Sweat and Tears, I believe David Clayton Thomas (lead singer) is now touring with his own group and does BS&T tunes as well as originals. His band is based out of Toronto. They played the PEI Jazz and Blues festival last week.

    In addition to all the great bands listed so far, I would add Sly And The Family Stone, James Brown, all the P-Funk bands and early Kool And The Gang (Hollywood Swingin' and before).

    Didn't Phoenix Brass set the standard a couple of years ago?

    Don't forget Commodores, AWB, the Gap Band, Ohio Players, and (gulp!) KC & the Sunshine Band...
