Arts & Entertainment

Since 1968, Blood Sweat & Tears, a musical institution, has left an indelible mark on the American music scene. One of the greatest horn bands in the history of popular music, BS&T’s alumni roster reads like a Who’s Who of the world’s greatest jazz and rock musicians.

As BS&T has evolved through the years, it has maintained its commitment to high standards by including in its current roster the most talented musicians available. Starting out in Greenwich Village in New York, the band won worldwide acclaim, becoming the first in many categories: first band to tour behind the Iron Curtain, first band to have three hit singles from the same record, first band to combine rock with jazz, and of course, Sunday night Woodstock, yes, the real Woodstock.
