Train Celebrates 20th Year with Knock-Out Performance at KAABOO 2015

TRAIN - KAABOO Festival 2015

TrainBeing a huge Train fan goes without saying. RocmanRocks has been a huge fan since they first hit the airwaves. The performance that they gave at this years inaugural KAABOO Festival was an Epic Performance. The crowd that was in attendance was singing along with the band from the outset.

TrainFor Pat Monahan, crafting songs that have elevated pop radio and uniquely crystalized audiences’ shuffling inner-life has placed him on coveted songwriting ground. Add the fact that he fronts a band with a twenty year arsenal of enigmatic, signature hits – including “Meet Virginia,” “Drops Of Jupiter (Tell Me),” “Calling All Angels,” “Hey Soul Sister,” “Marry Me,” and “Drive By,” among others – and you begin to understand why their 7th studio album, Bulletproof Picasso, rings so damned true.

TrainThe entire band was right on Que. With over a hundred bands playing over the three day period, getting over to the Zuma stage to catch Train proved to be akin to running an obstacle course but catching TRAIN was a must. They hit the stage and were off and running. Their set list contained all the hits mentioned above and even contained a AEROSMITH song which took me by surprise. All in all their show was Epic. If you did not catch them at KAABOO catch them on tour and you will have a blast because this band ROCKS.

Train was one of the highlights of the weekend for Rocman!

    I was at Train’s show at Kaaboo. In fact, Train was the only and I saw at Kaaboo went there specifically to see them. Been a fan since the first time I heard “Meet Virginia.” Train brought the house down. I’m sure they made many new fans that night. See them just once and I don’t know how anyone could walk away without being a fan of this band. With an incredible, brilliant singer/ songwriter in Pat Monahan (such a beautiful voice) and an amazing band that plays with such precision, Train is a well oiled machine. They truly do rock! Train will always be my favorite band.

They truly do rock! Train will always be my favorite band.
