Class Reunion is a Chicago-based rock band formed by ex-high school classmates met in high school in 1983. We lost touch one year later and then in 2007 we had a chance reunion due to a connection on the website A reunion of old high school buddies, meeting again at a Speedway gas-station. Class Reunion was born on May of 2009 from that history and now, the story just beginning........
