* Tribute to the Band Chicago (“If You Leave Me Now,” “Saturday in the Park”).
Real simple tale to tell you guys, the band’s name is Solid Brass- and it’s one of the best Chicago “tribute” bands in America. Over the years, Jeff Eats has seen Solid Brass in action something like 10 times and like I just enunciated- definitely one of the best Chicago tribute bands in the business…

To be a great Chicago tribute band, you have to be a great band, period. For one thing, there’s Chicago’s incredible output and back catalog, encompassing 20 Top 10 hits and 15 platinum albums. Then you have to replicate the original’s incredible energy and musicality. Chicago did so much more than just “add a touch of brass to rock ‘n’ roll.” They fused rock, jazz, funk and soul into a sound all their own — a sound celebrated and expanded in an incredible string of hits like “Saturday in the Park,” “Beginnings,” “If You Leave Me Now” and “25 or 6 to 4.” On all counts, Solid Brass succeeds as a proper tribute to the rock institution and all horn bands from the ’60s and ’70s. Dedicated to perfection and with a passion for Chicago’s music, Solid Brass re-creates the excitement of a Chicago concert at the Boca Black Box, much to the delight of newcomers and die-hard fans alike.
