WOLFEBORO — On Friday, July 10 at 7:30 pm the Great Waters Music Festival will kick off its Kingwood Series with Blood Sweat & Tears.
"Like a great baseball team the members change but the soul lives on, Though many great musicians have passed through BS&T it's musicianship stands the test of time" 2005 found BS&T looking back to founding father Bobby Colomby's original vision for Blood Sweat & Tears quite simple "Find the greatest musicians and the rest is easy".
Since then with Bobby Colomby's guidance BS&T have re-established themselves as one of the hottest touring acts in the world. Whether playing the hits that started BS&T'S meteoric rise or complicated Jazz riff's, audiences world wide show their appreciation with standing ovations nightly.
2008 The South Korean Government named Blood Sweat & Tears "The Ambasadors of Peace" That same year the BS&T horn section recorded with Jeff Lorber on his Grammy nominated CD "He Had A Hat".
2010 saw yet another recording session with Jeff Lorber. A world tour interrupted by an Icelandic volcano. The band buys a Tour Bus to play smaller and up close venues along with the big concert venues.
2011 BS&T played 3 sold out concerts at the world famous Blue Note Jazz Club in New York City with the Legendary trumpeter Arturo Sandoval.
The current lead singer for the group is Bo Bice, who was the runner up to Carrie Underwood in 2005 on the hit FOX show American Idol.
The performance will be held at the Kingswood Arts Center in Wolfeboro and is sponsored by Fidelity Investments, Maxfield Real Estate, the Laconia Daily Sun and Steve & Carol Bush of Maxfield Real Estate.
