CJ West and The Downtown Train

CJ West and The Downtown Train plays country, rock, rhythm & blues and "whatever!"  They LIKE so many different styles of music, it would be a shame to limit what they play to one genre. The Downtown Train plays kickin' country music, classic and modern.  Most of the band has rock and roll roots so mixing that in was a no-brainer.  Then.....there's a lot of great other stuff out there.....and decades' worth!  CJ West and The Downtown Train is always taking you somewhere! Sometimes they take you to summer country concerts, line-dancing parties or redneck weekends.  Other times, they mix up a whole brew of music to keep everybody dancing.  Lately, The Train take crowds to Woodstock, a tribute to the bands who graced the stage at Woodstock 1969.  Whatever trip they're taking you on, The Downtown Train's talented instrumentalists and well-blended voices add up to a unique, danceable and fun musical experience!
