"Five Star" Review!!:
This band is great! Very good music and they interact
well with the crowd. I will ask them back for my next
event and highly recommend them to all if you want
great entertainment for your event!
- Ronnie B. (Manchester Center, VT.)

The Nite Train Band has been entertaining Capital District crowds since its’ inception in March of 2003.
The band has come a long way since its’ first show, with the most radical
upheaval occurring in 2006 when bassist/band-leader Ken Briggs..set out about
the task of turning the band into a Horn Band! The all-original CD, "Best Man", is particularly impressing critics:
"A Rollicking new collection of 10 original tunes that should have the dance floor hopping all night long...a howling horn section.
The proof is on the rip-snorting disc!” - Greg Haymes (Albany Times Union)
