Long Train Runnin' is a group of talented musicians who perform classic Doobie Brothers songs with the energy of a live concert. Like the Doobies, LTR hails from San Jose and the hills above Santa Cruz. A Long Train performance launches you on a roller coaster ride down Memory Lane. And just as you settle into the 70s and 80s, LTR rocks you right back to the present with an eclectic mix of tracks from other modern artists.

With two drummers, three guitarists, two keyboards, a sax and six vocalists, LTR's music is precise, full-bodied and rockin'. The professional polish of the band is rooted in four decades of playing rock, funk, soul and pop together in the very best Bay Area cover bands. The reason Long Train sounds like they've been making music together forever, it's because they have. If classic rock is your drink of choice, you've come to the right place.
