If Chicago is the home of the blues, then perhaps its appropriate that one of the City’s best new-ish indie bands plays pretty killer blues. Train Company is more than just a blues band though — they’re a quintet of extremely talented musicians with a plethora of influences that adds up to a superb roots rock band. Train Company’s tour took them East and we were there when they played their first ever NYC show last week at Bowery Electric. The initial impression is that these guys are pros — belied by the fact that they’re mostly young men in their 20s. But between lead singer John Zozzaro’s wise growling vocals, the addition of a sax in several numbers, and killer organ/piano/keytar from Samuel Wyatt, Train Company has an authentic and compelling bluesy sound that really can’t miss. We’re streaming “Steve”, a number that captures all of these traits in one strong song.

I recorded this set with the Sennheiser cards set up in front of the board about twenty feet from the stage and mixed with an excellent feed. The sound quality is superb. Enjoy!
