Brass Transit will perform June 24 at the Orillia Opera House.

Now in their 15th year, Brass Transit continues to electrify audiences at North America’s top theatres, casinos and festivals, weaving their note-perfect renditions of Chicago classics into an unforgettable evening of high-energy music.

As Atlantic City Weekly observed: “Brass Transit envelops the audience from the very first note and delivers a spine-tingling experience.”

Brass Transit is stacked with seasoned veterans; the eight members count among their performance credits Aretha Franklin, Jeff Beck, Natalie Cole, David Clayton-Thomas, Chuck Berry, Paul Anka, the Manhattan Transfer, Triumph, Kim Mitchell, Sass Jordan, Lighthouse, Tom Cochrane, Percy Sledge, Sam & Dave, the Drifters and Hugh Jackman. Their accolades include Emmy, Juno and SOCAN awards, platinum records, endorsements from major music manufacturers and rave reviews.

With two albums to their credit and video view counts in the millions, Brass Transit has become a powerful presence on the internet. Their new single, Last Time This Time, has been warmly received at radio. Keyboardist Don Breithaupt recently co-wrote Chicago’s No. 1 holiday smash, All Over the World. Performing both as an eight-piece and with orchestras in Detroit, Vancouver, Louisville, Calgary, Buffalo and elsewhere, they are in the midst of their busiest year ever.

Brass Transit faithfully covers Chicago’s biggest hits from 1969 to 1984. They are a guaranteed trip back in time to an era of sizzling horns, rich harmonies, incredible percussion, indelible hooks, and old-fashioned showmanship. Not to be missed Saturday, June 24 at the Orillia Opera House.
