Sol Driven Train - Tour and Dashed Idol Dreams


Submitted by -Mason Jar Media Thu, 05/16/2013 - 11:37 am

Sol Driven Train head back out on the road for a mix of city festival and club show dates across the East Coast this summer. The 5-piece horn-infused ‘Low Country Roots Rock Band’ had a busy spring with a heavy touring schedule and the release of Underdog, an album that has spent many weeks at the top of the Jambands radio chart. While on tour, vocalist/ saxophonist Russell Clarke used his rich baritone and magnanimous beard to sway a group of American Idol judges and qualify for a succeeding round, however, Idol dreams were crushed when Clarke found out he was ‘too old’ for the show.
Fans can find Russell and the rest of Sol Driven Train on July 19th and 20th hosting their 3rd annual Sol Slam event at the Windjammer on Isle of Palms, SC. The event will feature nine bands performing on two stages including an outdoor stage overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. The 2013 musical lineup includes a cast of Charleston based talent with performances by hosts Sol Driven Train, Dangermuffin, YARN, Fowler’s Mustache, Royal Tinfoil and more. Tickets are currently on sale and can be purchased at the venue box office and online at or
