Brass Transit: The Musical Legacy of Chicago
Brass Transit, the world’s foremost Chicago tribute band, returns to the Hoover stage on Friday, June 10 at 7:30 p.m.
Brass Transit is a dynamic, crowd-pleasing and studio-tight powerhouse. An indication of the band’s authenticity and high-level musicianship: Chicago’s current ranks already include one longtime veteran of Brass Transit.
Brass Transit was formed in 2008 and its accomplished, award-winning roster is intent on paying tribute to the decades-long, multiplatinum songbook of Chicago.
Since 2008, Brass Transit has toured North America steadily, dazzling audiences with flawless performances and spectacular attention to detail. Hits like, “Saturday in the Park,” “25 or 6 to 4,” “If You Leave Me Now,” “Feelin’ Stronger Every Day” and “You’re the Inspiration” have left crowds in awe, inspiring 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 replicating the songs; they embody the music. They recently produced their first (self-titled) album, taking songs by other top rock artists from the 1970s 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!
