A “Cosmic Railroad” show is an experience all in itself. No one, not even the band knows what’s going to happen next. They are a true jam band to say the least. The band plays from the seat of their pants night after night. They leave it up the moment to pick what will happen next. This is where you can see their mastery. As the night moves on, they continue to pick up steam, and things really start to roll. A “Cosmic Railroad” show usually lasts up to three or four hours straight so when they hit their stride, it’s gone.
“Cosmic Railroad” is considered an original jam band. Mostly, the songs that you would hear at a “Cosmic Railroad” show are just that, original. The band uses these songs as a jumping off points, sometimes taking them into very different directions from the last time it may have been played. Other times, who knows?
If youre into REAL jambands Cosmic Railroad is for you. When the train stops...Get on!!
