Grammy Award-winning Blood, Sweat & Tears (BS&T) returns to Lakeside with new lead singer Keith Paluso from “The Voice” for an unforgettable evening of classic hits.

For more than five decades, this iconic band has entertained audiences across the world, unleashing a wave of chart-toppers like “You’ve Made Me So Very Happy,” “And When I Die” and “Spinning Wheel.”

The first band of its kind, BS&T has successfully blended jazz, rock and blues into a genre-crossing sound and style. Only performing 60 shows per year, it’s a rare treat to see them live.

BS&T got its start in the late-1960s while practicing in a New York Greenwich Village loft with crowds cheering from the streets below. Since then, the band hasn’t stopped touring.

Their first album, Child is Father to the Man, was released to little fan fair. However, after band member changes and replacement of the lead singer, their self-titled second album became an instant success, yielding three Top 5 singles.

The album received the Grammy Award for Album of the Year in 1970, beating out The Beatles’ Abbey Road. BS&T later went on to receive 10 Grammy nominations, winning three.

Over the years, more than 175 musicians have flowed through the ranks of various iterations of BS&T, but one this is for sure, the music is timeless and fans are never disappointed.

To this day, founding member and former BS&T drummer Bobby Colomby handpicks the musicians and vocalists for every tour using the theory that “great musicians make great music.”

His latest addition to the group is front man Keith Paluso, who joined BS&T in 2019. Audiences may recognize Paluso from his unforgettable performances on NBC’s “The Voice” in 2018.

When Paluso became a Tennessee park ranger, he hung up his guitar and put music on the back burner. After the birth of his first child, Paluso was inspired to follow his musical aspirations. Selected by Blake Shelton during “The Voice’s” Blind Auditions, he was stolen by Adam Levine after the Battle Rounds then saved by Kelly Clarkson following the Knockouts.

Paluso’s unique sound is a blend of different styles ranging from rock and country to rootsy blues that are a deep part of his Memphis heritage. His soulful, husky voice has been compared to the likes of Chris Stapleton, Marc Broussard and JJ Grey.

“I have some enormous shoes to fill, with vocalists like David Clayton Thomas and more recently Bo Bice from “American Idol” in the band’s history. I’m hoping I can honor those people and make my own mark on what is now a musical tradition.”
