Cosmic Railroad / Press

“Music is an adventurous journey for the members of Cosmic Railroad, a psychedelic jam band that transports listeners to delightful and unexpected destinations. If you are into exceptional musicianship and extended jams, climb aboard the Cosmic Railroad train, because you're in for an exhilarating ride. "The same reason people are there watching it is the same reason we are playing it," said Greg Gierl, one of the bands three guitarists. " We love the improvisation, we love the unexpected," he said. "The highs and lows of improvisation are like a rollercoaster." Jam bands constitute a genre now, Gierl said." Ten years ago it was pretty much the Grateful Dead and Phish." he said. "Then if you go back 15 years it was just the Grateful Dead. Ever since Jerry Garcia passed away, Phish became huge- and that spawned a whole new genre of music. ”

“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 Jam music with its live 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. They have appeared at such nationally recognized clubs as The Brat Stop, the BBC, The Rave and many more. They also play several different Jam festivals 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. ”
