Big Train and the Loco Motives are an eclectic group of musicians that come from a variety of genres and backgrounds that have one thing in common: When they are on stage together, they have an absolute blast.
Big Train and the Loco Motives plays what they coined “Red Dirt Blues”. It’s blues from the Canadian River delta country, or at least as close to a delta as the Canadian River will get. They cover everything from traditional Delta Blues to Texas Boogie-Woogie, from acoustic covers of Classic Rock, to rock covers of Traditional Folk. While it may be hard to nail them down other than they totally enjoy making music, it’s guaranteed that everyone who shows up in the audience will also enjoy the show.
The Big Train and the Loco Motives line-up is also as varied as the music. Usual suspects include Bill “Top Dog” Cummins on harmonica, “Lord” Benjamin Carter on bass, Mike “Pine Box” Lander on percussion, and Frank “N’ Beans” Lawrence on guitar and mandolin. The members of both The Whiskey Gingers and Heartbreak Rodeo are also frequently on stage as well.
