Chicago tribute band to perform at WCU

Written by 

Called “the world’s greatest tribute to Chicago,” musical group Brass Transit will perform at 5 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 29, at the Bardo Fine and Performing Arts Center at Western Carolina University.

With a growing legion of fans on both sides of the U.S.-Canadian border, the eight-piece Toronto group rips through Chicago’s catalog of hits from the 1970s — classics such as “Make Me Smile,” “25 or 6 to 4,” “Call on Me,” “Wishing You Were Here,” “Old Days,” “Questions 67 & 68” and “Does Anybody Really Know What Time It Is?”

The group regularly performs to sold-out crowds across the U.S. and Canada – no easy feat when the real members of Chicago are still actively touring.

Tickets for the show are $20 for adults, $15 for WCU faculty and staff, and $5 for students and children. The Brass Transit performance is sponsored by Tonemaster Muffler Shop of Sylva.

Soon, she’d cross paths down South with country and bluegrass melodies radiating from Nashville and beyond.
