Performing Arts Center
Chicago is a rock infused, horn driven musical powerhouse that has inspired generations of musicians. Some of the best found their way to Central Florida, and formed Orlando Transit Authority. OTA is a high energy, Chicago tribute made up of A-list players who are, first and foremost, Chicago FANS. Founder Stan Allen and Musical Director Carl Dirkes hand-picked the band based on the degree to which they naturally sound like the original members of Chicago. OTA went one step further by seeking to emulate every vocal and instrumental stylistic nuance of the Chicago sound. The vocal harmonies are right. The solos are right. The guitar sounds are right. EVERYTHING is right. OTA offers a "tribute within a tribute" to the group that was indirectly responsible for Chicago's success: Blood, Sweat, and Tears. The soulful vocals to the technical mastery of the horns, OTA brings the most popular Blood, Sweat, and Tears to life with astonishing accuracy. You will LOVE Orlando Transit Authority!
