The BRASS TRANSIT concert includes all the hits from Chicago’s golden ages. With a world-class horn section, a rocking rhythm section and vocals stacked sky-high, Brass Transit transports its audience back to the freewheeling day’s of the seventies. The band includes veterans of the Hall-of-Fame rock and soul acts like the Drifters, Sam an Dave, Aretha Franklin, Frankie Valli, Martha Reeves, Little Anthony & the Imperials, Del Shannon and the Mamas and the Papas. “This is not just a tribute band, it is THE Chicago experience!” Joe Donofrio, six-time Grammy award-winning record producer.
