The Blues Lives!! Rich Townsend & the Magnificent NighTrain breathes soul into classics and new age tunes while keeping everything a bit swampy and spooky. Armed with a multitude of horns, harmonicas and insane piano playin’, it’s pure energy from start to finish.
The band began to take shape in early 2018 composing of initially just Rich Townsend singing and on the piano, T-Bone Motta playing drums and Chris Range on alto sax performing for all sorts down in smoky Irish bar basements and late night clubs all around NYC. Now it’s blossomed with a full bench of horn players, fiddle players, guitars, upright bass players… NighTrain is a full spectrum blues experience.
