Cosmic Railroad

Submitted by gratefulweb on Thu, 09/08/2005 - 12:33 pm

This original jam band hailing from southeastern Wisconsin was established in 1999. All the members of Cosmic Railroad have found themselves and their styles absorbed by the band. The band is known for putting the groove back in groove music with its shows. A sound that moves through uncharted water night after night never knowing what's going to pop up next.

Performing regularly since the spring of 1999 Cosmic Railroad has become well known for it's live performances particularly in the Milwaukee and Chicagoland area. They have appeared at such nationally recognized clubs as "The Brat Stop" and "The BBC". They have also been invited to play at several different festivals in the southeastern Wisconsin and Illinois area, as well as different colleges throughout the Midwest.

Cosmic Railroad shows no signs of slowing down, in fact, they are traveling more than ever and gaining more and more ground both from the family (fans) standpoint and the improvisational standpoint.

The band is also trying to release as many live recordings as possible as the demand for them continues to grow. The band tries to release a new bootleg every few months as well as downloadable music files on their web site. These bootlegs are intended for the Cosmic Railroad family (the people that come to the shows) so they can help spread the word. (Please feel free to duplicate recordings as long as they are not used for profits in anyway).

Cosmic Railroad hopes that their family (fans) enjoy the journey with them.

I just was recently turned on to Cosmic Railroad this summer when I heard of them from some friends. I was able to see a live show and I was astounded by how good this band really is. The show was The Grateful Garcia Gathering in Black River Falls, Wi and there were some pretty good bands there. JGB, Fat Maw Rooney, Waterband and others. Although each band was very good it was ultimately Cosmic Railroad that stood out the most. They have that special aura that the others lacked! Ill be waiting for more shows to come to my area, or I guess ill have to go to them. I would easily be worth the travel

Cosmic Railroad rocks or STFU! : )

Waiting on pins & needles for them to make it out my way so they can rock my world live.

Great job guys! It's a well-deserved honor indeed.

Congratulations to Cosmic Railroad for this honor! There are plenty of bands out there that have adopted the "jam" style and sound - but you guys are sticking true-to-form. There is definately something magical that happens when you guys dive into the unknown, swim down to find the monster, and pull it out kicking and screaming for the world to see. In the spirit of the acid tests, Cosmic Railroad is most certainly on the right track. Cheers!
