The American modern vintage rock n’ roll band The R Train pulls up today with a steady flow of singles and a powerful story of perseverance and positivity. All aboard!
The R Train hails from Brooklyn, New York, but has tracks leading down into South Florida. This power trio features longtime friends and rock scene vets: fleet-fingered guitarist/vocalist/multi-instrumentalist Jeffrey Black, deep grooving bassist and harmony vocalist Denny Lee, and, the band’s driving force, powerhouse drummer and vocalist Mike Annese.
The three-piece band creates their own rock n’ roll mojo inspired by classic artists like Black Sabbath, Grand Funk Railroad, Tom Petty, Cream, Rush and the Beatles. In addition, the band has a Queen-like sense of adventurousness, writing diverse songs with a band identity cohesiveness. The R Train tunes feature pounding drums, thick fuzz-dipped guitars, and grinding basslines.
The band exudes power, precision, and a groove that evokes the halcyon era of the arena rock days, but with a modern vigor that makes it feel fresh again. The R Train’s sound is so immediately infectious that music executive producers Brud Van Cott and Albert Trenchie took an instant interest in the band and remain staunch behind-the-scenes supporters.
