Chicago is a rock-infused, horn-driven musical powerhouse that has inspired generations of professional musicians over the last 40 years. Some of the very best of those musicians found their way to central Florida and came together to form Orlando Transit Authority. OTA is a high-energy Chicago tribute show made up of A-list players who are, first and foremost, Chicago FANS. Founder Stan Allen and Musical Director Carl Dirkes hand-picked each member of the band based on one simple criteria: The degree to which he naturally sounds like the corresponding original member of Chicago. OTA emulates every stylistic nuance of the Chicago sound, both vocally and instrumentally.
OTA takes the Chicago tribute to another level by offering a “tribute within a tribute” to the group that was indirectly responsible for Chicago’s success: Blood, Sweat and Tears.
You will hear great hits: “25 or 6 to 4”, “Saturday in the Park”, “Does Anybody Really Know What Time It Is”, “Will You Still Love Me?”, “You’re My Inspiration”, “Spinning Wheel”, “God Bless the Child”, “If You Leave Me Now”, and “Just You ‘N’ Me”.
