The Chi-Town Transit Authority will bring the unique sounds of Chicago to Mineral County on Oct. 16.

KEYSER - As a Chicago tribute band, Chi-Town Transit Authority prominently features the horn section as well as the tight vocal harmonies that Chicago is known for. They are bringing this signature sound to the region for one show only Oct. 16 as the Highland Arts Unlimited (HAU) season continues.

A self-contained eight-piece performance group, Chi-Town is dedicated to recreating the premier concert experience of the band Chicago. The 90-minute performance will get underway at 7:30 p.m. on Oct. 16 at the Church-McKee Arts Center on the campus of Potomac State College.

Performing accurate Chicago covers from the 1970s through the 1990s, Chi-Town is known for generating excitement and prompting audiences to clamor for more.

Perfect for all audience ages and backgrounds this group performs Chicago's music in their original keys, horns out-front, with soulful, clear vocals from the hard rocking "I'm a Man" to ’80s ballads like "Hard Habit To Break" and hits including "Saturday In The Park" and "Does Anybody Really Know What Time It Is?"
