Daniel Seraphine

Daniel Seraphine

In 1967, Danny Seraphine was one of the architects of the band Chicago Transit Authority, which soon came to be known as Chicago. As the original drummer for the group, Seraphine performed and contributed his songwriting talents for over 22 years until he left the band in 1990. During his tenure, Chicago was the leading singles-charting group of the 1970s. Collectively, the band generated sales over 130 million units in the U.S. with 22 gold, 18 platinum, and 8 multi-platinum albums. During the course of their career, they charted five No. 1 albums and 21 top ten hits. Chicago is historically one of the longest-running and most successful American pop/rock and roll groups--second only to the Beach Boys in terms of singles and albums. Recognized as one of the world's most highly respected and influential jazz-rock/rock drummers of all time, Danny Seraphine was named by the legendary Buddy Rich as one of his favorite young drummers; he also was named as one of Rolling Stone's All-time Top Drummers. Following his departure from Chicago, he went on to produce recording artists, Broadway and off-Broadway shows, and an independent movie and soundtrack. In 2006, Danny Seraphine formed his new band CTA (California Transit Authority) which he continues to tour and record with today while he carries on the jazz/rock legacy Chicago Transit Authority started in 1969.
