In the late 70's early 80's, the founding members of Lights Out Chicago grew up in the Berwyn, IL. area playing classic rock and roll either in the same or different bands. They even played at the same gigs with different band members in several Battle of the Bands. By the mid eighties they had gone their separate ways.
In late 2005, a mutual friend of the band was able to get a hold of Joe Mazzuca and reunited him with Eric and Richard who had since married and started families. In early 2007, they decided to give the band another try and dusted off the old axes.
UFO was a heavy influence "back in the day" and Lights Out Chicago's set list includes the expanded version of the Strangers in the Night album.
So come out see us play and enjoy those great classic UFO songs we all grew up on!!!
