"Spinning Wheel" "Lisa, Listen To Me" - "I Love You More Than You'll Ever Know" - "Lucretia Mac Evil" - "God Bless the Child"


BS&T’s alumni roster reads like a Who’s Who of the world’s greatest musicians. Although there have been many changes in the band’s line up over the years BS&T continues its tradition of finding and showcasing the brightest talent around the world. Whether playing their greatest hits, or new arrangements of classic songs, the band provides a night you will never forget
BS&T’s longstanding audiences bring their children to the band’s performances; a new generation joins an existing wide demographic of loyal fans. 2006 saw record attendance and sold out shows. Blood Sweat & Tears has once again proven that great musicians produce great music. The horn section has recorded with Jazz great Jeff Lorber for his 2007 album. 2008 brought the bands first World Tour in many years. 2008 also saw the return of Founding Father Steve Katz (pictured), who will also be performing, with the BS&T line up for the NZ tour
