Russian band Leonid & Friends take the stage at St. Clair Park in Greensburg on Friday, June 28, 2019. Leonid & Friends, a Russian band covering the pop group Chicago, performs at St. Clair Park in Greensburg on Friday, June 28, 2019.

After packing St. Clair Park in Greensburg on Friday night, Russian band Leonid & Friends is already making plans to bring the classic pop-rock sound of Chicago back to the Pittsburgh region.

The band will play Jergel’s Rhythm Grille in Warrendale on Oct. 22.

Tickets are $34 to $50, and there is a special $85 package that includes early entry and a meet-and-greet with the band.

On June 28, St. Clair Park was so crowded that spectators were lining up along the fencing outside St. Clair Park barely a half hour into the show.

Friends of SummerSounds Chairman Gene James said he knew people from New York, Maryland and Virginia who were traveling to Greensburg for the show.

Below, see video of Leonid & Friends opening Friday’s show in Greensburg with “Make Me Smile”:

Jergel’s is at 103 Slade Lane in Warrendale. Click here for ticket information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.
