Blood Sweat & Tears - Grammy Award Winning Band - Featuring American Idol Finalist Bo Bice - Presented by the Victoria Symphony

SATURDAY, JANUARY 21 - Blood, Sweat & Tears presented by the Victoria Symphony Orchestra - 7:30 p.m. at the Victoria Fine Arts Center, 1002 Sam Houston Drive. “It's been more than four decades since drummer/producer Bobby Colomby and friends (Al Kooper +) assembled the first group to successfully blend rock and jazz into a genre-crossing sound and style. So successfully in fact, that the band's second album, Blood, Sweat & Tears, topped the Billboard charts for many weeks and beat out the Beatles' Abbey Road for the prestigious Album of the Year Grammy award. That album produced three major hit singles: “You Made Me So Very Happy,” “Spinning Wheel,” and “And When I Die.” Blood, Sweat & Tears will perform their hits with spirit and enthusiasm, as if it was their first performance of those songs. The band will also introduce some new elements into every performance, including a segment devoted to “Songs We Wish We Had Recorded,” done in classic BS&T style. Bo Bice, who came in second place to Carrie Underwood in the fourth season of “American Idol,” is now the lead singer of the Grammy Award-winning band.” / 361.576.4500
