Q. What happens when eight of Canada’s most in-demand musicians and singers gather together out of a common love for one of the most successful pop/rock groups of all time?

A.Brass Transit – a dynamic, crowd-pleasing, studio-tight powerhouse, and the world’s foremost CHICAGO tribute!

Brass Transit was formed in 2008 and brought together 8 of Canada’s most talented, accomplished and award- winning players. Their sole purpose was to pay tribute to the decades-long, multiplatinum songbook of CHICAGO.

Since then, the band has toured North America steadily, dazzling audiences with flawless performances and spectacular attention detail. Hits like: Saturday In The Park, 25 or 6 To 4, If You Leave Me Now, Feelin’ Stronger Every Day and Beginnings have left crowds in awe, evoking multiple standing ovations and 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. They recently produced their first (self-titled) album, taking songs by other top artists from the seventies and recording them with horns in the CHICAGO style. The result is a fresh approach to some of the greatest hits of the era. They also recently scored their show for full symphony orchestra with original arrangements that are truly spellbinding.

Brass Transit will bring you back to the most memorable times of your life. Get ready to sing along!

 

Show starts at 7pm and goes until 9pm.  There is no cover charge but donations are greatly appreciated to allow the the committee to continue to bring you great concerts each and every week.
