"Five Star" Review!!:
This band is great! You can't help but have a
good time with em as they're not only top-notch
musicians but you can tell they genuinely Love
what they're doing. Their set list has broad
appeal and their high-energy fun is infectious!
I booked them for a Festival I organized in
Binghamton, NY and have already booked them
again for yet another festival I'm organizing
later this summer. Nite Train rocks!
- Dana S.[Festival Promoter] (Binghamton, N.Y.)

"Five Star" Review!!:
Perfect! Nite Train was fantastic! Arrived on time,

I know you will not be disappointed with this band!

"Five Star" Review!!:
These guys saved me. I wanted to do something
memorable for my daughter's Birthday. Nite
Train reached out to me and saved the day! In
less than 48 hrs, Nite Train booked (the event),
travelled to CT and rocked! It was excellent!
Courteous, professional and reasonable too...
Nite Train defies gravity!
- Robin R. (Plantsville, CT.)

"Five Star" Review!!:
This band is great! Very good music and they really
interact well with the crowd. I will ask them back for
my next party and highly recommend them to all if you
want great entertainment for your event!

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)" Buy this Album
