POWERHOUSE, originally formed in 1985 to recreate the sound of the 60’s horn bands. The band continues to emulate their motown and classic rock roots, also adding CHICAGO TRANSIT ( Chicago ) and HAVIN’ A PARTY ( Rod Stewart ) tribute shows.
With four lead vocalists, 5 piece rythmn section and a three-piece horn section, the band has performed their Chicago Transit (a tribute to the band ‘Chicago‘) – the first of its kind and longest running anywhere in the world. CHICAGO TRANSIT has toured throughout Canada and the U.S. for over three decades.
If you like Chicago, you’ll love Chicago Transit!
HAVIN’ A PARTY
Doug Varty has fronted the band as ROD STEWART in the HAVIN’ A PARTY show with CHICAGO TRANSIT for years. The show has regularly travelled and performed throughout North America, at festivals, theatres, casinos and corporate events.
Still maintaining its soul and motown roots, the POWERHOUSE show features Paula Tessaro and the other 4 lead vocalists. The band covers Eagles, Billy Joel, Ides of March, Aretha Franklin, Gladys Knight and many more. This band is the basis for all of our shows and has been playing for 34 years.
