Local author captures Chicago music scene of the 1960s and 70s
Uncover two decades worth of stories from the Chicago music scene in the new photographic history book from Arcadia Publishing and local musician Dean Milano, The Chicago Music Scene: 1960s and 1970s.
During an incredibly vibrant period in urban and suburban music scenes across the country, Chicago was a major player throughout the ‘60s and ‘70s. It was a time when jazz, rock and roll, country and western, folk, blues, and R & B flowed through the streets of Chicagoland.
Much has been written about the national and international talent of that time, but not enough has been written about local hometown music history. This book focuses on the city of Chicago, along with its suburban club scene, and the homegrown performers who made the ‘60s and ‘70s one of the most electrifying and memorable periods in music history. Some of those players went all the way to the big time, while others made their mark and disappeared. They all made a difference in their own way, and for those who were there, it is a time they will never forget.
Author Dean Milano hopes the book will “give some recognition to a few forgotten artists who deserve to be heard again, and stir up some nice memories for those who were lucky enough to hear the music of that time.” H
