Chicago tribute band to perform at WCU

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.
