Brass Transit, formed in 2008, brought together eight talented and accomplished award-winning musicians. Their sole purpose: to pay tribute to one of the world’s greatest and most successful pop rock groups of all time, Chicago.
Since then, the group has toured North America dazzling audiences with their flawless performances and spectacular attention to every detail of the Chicago songbook. Hits like: Saturday In The Park, 25 or 6 To 4, If You Leave Me Now, You’re The Inspiration have left crowds in awe and on their feet more than once during a show. Evoking comments like “Spine tingling,” “Brought me back to my youth,” and “Perfect in every detail,” Brass Transit goes far beyond just imitating the songs, they embody the music.
The group recently produced their first CD, taking top hits from the 70s and recording them with horns in the Chicago style. The result is a fresh approach to some of the greatest hits of the era.
Brass Transit performs Jan. 26 at Flato Markham Theatre.
