Chicago Cub Family Press Release

Well known Chicago musician &

his illustrious RadioActive friend create an exciting song to honor the Chicago Cubs

Listeners Can Expect to Hear A Sonically Stunning Song

108 Years in the Making. . .

April, 2017 (New York, NY) --If you like The Eagles, Peter Frampton, Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, Joe Walsh, The Buckinghams, and countless others, then you have heard the music of Joe Vitale and Carl Giammarese. Both Vitale & Giammarese have had #1 radio hits, performed in huge stadiums worldwide, and have sold millions of copies of their songs.

RadioActive Talent Inc. music license agent Ken Franklin

and Chicago singer/songwriter Liz Chidester were so inspired by the excitement of the Chicago Cubs that they wanted to pay homage by composing "Chicago Cub Family," a new Wrigley Field hit.

Franklin, whose company licenses songs of Vitale & Giammarese, knew of the emotion they both felt when the Cubs won the World Series and asked them if they would like to add their musicianship to the song.

Once 'Team Joe and Carl' went into recording studio mode, Ken and Liz realized they created something special.

About Vitale and Giammarese

Chicago native Giammarese is known throughout the world as the founding member of The Buckinghams and their many hit songs. As a forever Cubs fanatic, he sings The National Anthem at Cubs games each year. Carl spent some time with the late Steve Goodman ("Go Cubs Go" singer/songwriter) when Tufano & Giammarese were performing in some of the same Chicago clubs as Steve in the 1970s.

If you want to see the track record of the All Star music career of Joe Vitale one just needs to read his book BACKSTAGE PASS, an insightful look into Joe’s recording and touring life with some of the greatest bands and singer/songwriters of all time. Besides Vitale’s stellar music career, he has a connection to baseball, being from the same Ohio town of baseball great Thurman Munson. Joe and Thurman were childhood friends and often played catch together.
