If you didn’t attend the Labor Day concert at the fairgrounds Saturday night, you really missed a wonderful show that people will most likely be buzzing about for quite some time to come.
The show was presented by the Orange Town News, Town of Orange, Yale University, and the Law Offices of Debra Marino.
For two hours, the Chicago tribute band, “Brass Transit” from Toronto played all of the best known Chicago songs. The eight members did not wear costumes or look like the 70s music makers, but, if you closed your eyes, you could swear you were sitting at a Chicago concert.
The crowd loved it when the brass section left the stage and played up close and personal on the lawn and the lead guitarist played his solo from “25 or 6 to 4″ on the lawn too, mingling with the audience members who were dancing and rushed the stage for the last song.
The Orange Lions Club sold cold beverages and snacks under the pavilion and Russ & Lisa Arpaia served up their specialties out of the Firedog Food Truck.
The $5 parking fee went to the Amity Teen Center for their stage and sound system.
Thank You to all those involved for bringing another GREAT band to Orange.
