TIFTON – Chi-Town Transit Authority, a tribute group to the band Chicago, is coming to Tifton Sept. 30 to benefit the Tifton-Tift County Public Library.
Sponsored by the Tifton-Tift County Public Library Foundation as a fundraiser for the library, Chi-Town Transit Authority is an eight-piece group dedicated to reproducing the Chicago concert experience, library representatives said in a statement.
"Chi-Town achieves this by featuring the powerful horns, dynamic vocal harmonies and rocking rhythm section for which the band Chicago is famous," library representatives said.
"Chi-Town's emphasis is on the kind of live show that brings down the house and makes the audience get up and dance."
All of Chicago’s big hits from “25 or 6 to 4" to "Saturday in the Park" to “Colour My World,” and "Does Anybody Really Know What Time it Is?” will be covered in this 90-minute concert that offers "a fun-filled, live experience," representatives said.
An optional dinner before the show at the University of Georgia Tifton Campus Conference Center features fine dining and congenial conversation. Reserved sponsor tables are still available for the dinner and show.

This is the only fundraiser for the Tifton-Tift County Public Library Foundation, a 501(c)3 charitable organization that supports the local library. The foundation has awarded more than $80,000 to the library for children’s programming, summer reading programs, books and online initiatives, library representatives said.
