“NIGHT TRAIN”

The legendary “NIGHT TRAIN” from the Bolton area arrived at’ BJ’s station’ at full steam, and entertained the passengers with a pleather of classic blues covers, just the ticket, and mixed these with several original works from the bands previous albums. While we are on the subject of albums the band’s new album entitled “The Silence Spoke” is due for release very soon. The band have an association stretching over the last 25 years or so and have built up over that time a solid reputation and are a popular blues band here in the Northwest. Alec Martin the band’s ‘Station Master’ and lead vocalist, also plays slide guitar, and blues harp is also the bands principal writer of songs, which gives the band something extra to include into their vast repertoire. The bands original works were “Death Angel” “She Said Yeah” “Shadow of the Night and “Howlin’ for my Baby” gave us just a glimpse of Alec’s capabilities, as a writer. The many covers they did were the likes of “Gloria” “I Put a Spell On You”” I Just Want to Make Love To You” “Little Red Rooster” “Troubles” “Louise” “Night Train” (1952) and many more that set us on course for a mighty journey through the best of the blues. Chief engineer and lead guitarist Wally Rumsey on his 1960s ‘Strat’ played as sharp as a needle and fuelling the ‘Night Train’ was chief stoker, bass guitarist Tony ‘Mad dog’ Backhouse and senior signal operator keeping them on schedule was drummer Rob Pusey. The bands web site for further information is www.thenighttrain.webs.com Yes we were all aboard the NIGHT TRAIN right to the end of the line.
