Transit Authority The Premier Tribute To Chicago was invited to perform at Epcot this summer but had to decline because of some ongoing health problems with a couple of it's members. Transit Authority will be back for the 2011 summer series.

Wow! What a remarkably petty thing to do. I hope your band members are alright, if that is in fact why you're not in Disney this summer. I for one will be making the trip to Epcot, specifically that week, in order to catch Beginnings, a truly remarkable band. Their interpretation of Chicago's music is really only second to the original. I've seen them a few times, and have been blown away by every performance. I'm sure the crowds in Epcot will feel the same way.

I have to agree 100% with Marcus. I have seen BEGINNINGS several times and each performance absolutely kills me. They don't just play the music, they bring it to you!.The entertainment factor is what separates them from any other band trying to do Chicago! I truly believe that Epcot will have only one Chicago show next summer and that will be BEGINNINGS!

My sisters and I purposely planned our annual Disney family reunion during the last week in July specifically to be there when Beginnings would be playing. My wife and I were enjoying their show at Bally’s in Atlantic City a couple of years ago when who walked in for the last set but Bill Champlin, Keith Howland, & the guys from Chicago! From the way they were all hanging out after the show you could tell they were impressed! Any tribute that has Chicago’s own “seal of approval” is worth seeing to me!

Thanks for the comments guys, but this is starting to look like an orchestrated promotion campaign for Beginnings. Any further comments along these lines will be deleted.
