Brass Transit was formed in 2008 and brought together 8 of the most talented and accomplished award-winning musicians. Their sole purpose was 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.
They 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 that era. They have also just recently scored their show for full Symphony with luscious orchestral arrangements that are truly spellbinding.
Brass Transit will bring you back to the most memorable times of your life.
