“Blues is a tonic for whatever ails you. I could play the blues and then not be blue anymore.”

B. B. King

Blues and Blues Rock

Every song we play gives homage to the Mississippi Delta Juke Joint, the Texas Roadhouse, and the Chicago Blues Club. Everything flows from there.

But a night with Big Train and the Loco Motives will never be like other bands where it’s the “same songs, different order.” Each night with Big Train and the Loco Motives is unique. Different songs, different players, different audience. Each night really is a case of “let’s play it by ear”.
