“Our organization has engaged Gary (Lucca) and his band for seven fundraisers over the last six years. The band always provides an energetic show with very talented musicians playing great selections and there is plenty of dancing. All of Gary’s shows have been well planned and executed. I find Gary and his band reliable and easy to work with and he has made for a great partner over the years. I highly recommend them."

Terry Herbstritt
Development Director - PACTT Learning Center

"The Sons of Chicago are a wonderful band that has played our annual fundraiser for the past four years. Lucca leads the band. They play music known and loved by many, plus their originals that are hits in their own right. Total pro sound and look has people coming back year after year for an evening of great fun ."

Entertainment Chair - Oak Park & River Forest Rotary Club

"What an amazing sound experience you will enjoy being a part of the “Son’s of Chicago” audience. The huge talent on stage starting with the engaging energy and showmanship of Gary Feracota as the lead vocalist and band leader. Follow this with the equally talented guitarists, brass, key board and drums and you have a huge night of pop, blues and soul. Can’t wait to see them again!"

Marianne Birko
Executive Director - West Suburban Special Recreation

"It is amazing to see Lucca and his band meld Sinatra, Aretha Franklin and Bruce Springsteen into one cohesive performance. Their book of music is very wide. It's  performed in their own unique and very cool style. This is a professional band that really knows how to hit the ball out of the park every time."

Scott Stevenson
Executive Vice President - Westrec SMI

"For six years running, Gary and his classy band has performed at our signature Gala. The music is always fresh with new interesting versions of classic tunes plus original songs they released. Gary knows how to work the room so everyone stays engaged and has fun. Dancing is a big part of the show. The crowd has a great time whenever they play."

Nick Berberian
Commodore - Chicago Yacht Club

"As a venue, bar and restaurant owner, I have hired many bands over the years. The Sons of Chicago are exceptional for a few reasons. They are a great act with excellent musicianship and a big song list of rocking blues, soul and jazz. They get the crowd on their feet by heading into the audience and on occasion by bringing someone on stage which the crowd loves. On time, polite, dressed well and easy to communicate with. Overall a great group for live music that your audience will enjoy and want to see more of."

Mark Stern
Founder and Operator - Weather Mark Tavern

"Sons of Chicago has performed for many  functions at Columbia Yacht Club. The band leader who also goes by Lucca, has a deep bench of pro musicians that he calls from to create a band that fits each function very well. These are seasoned musicians that play professionally the major jazz and blues venues in Chicago and elsewhere. A big plus is that they are a full service band. They can do a single piano player for opening, a jazz trio over dinner, and a ten piece dance band to finish big. Whatever we need they can provide. Great folks to work with."
