San Francisco’s Train is one of the most successful bands stemming from the late-‘90s, having sold millions of records and producing solid hit after hit with each album it releases. Singer Pat Monahan, guitarist Jimmy Stafford, drummer Scott Underwood, bassist Johnny Colt and keyboardist Brandon Bush know how to craft thoughtful ballads to anthemic rock ‘n’ roll – fans and radio cannot get enough of them.

Soundstage welcomes the group, who deliver a rousing performance packed with sing-along choruses and hook-filled melodies. From its earliest introduction to the world, “Meet Virginia,” to its most recent single, “Cab,” Train’s show is top-notch and note perfect. The beautiful ballads “Drops of Jupiter” and “She’s On Fire” are true gems. So is the anthemic “Calling All Angels” and Train’s reading of Aerosmith’s “Dream On” is a show-stopper.
