Fronted by Kevin Schexnayder, whose soulful singing has gained him praise throughout the southeast, Jive Train rolls its blend of soul, R&B, funk, rock, and jazz into a powerful sound that has audiences groovin'' wherever they go. By taking the classic sounds of the 70''s like Marvin Gaye, Otis Redding, and Earth, Wind, & Fire, and blending them with the sounds of today Jive Train has found a musical style suited for them to communicate their music to the world.
Since January of 2001, Jive Train has been touring extensively throughout the southeast, playing an average of 200 dates a year, in clubs and college campuses building a fan base to propel them across the country. Jive Train''s demo album, released in January of 2003, started the buzz about their obvious musical abilities and passion for their music. With a funky rhythm section, blistering horns, and some soulful vocals on top Jive Train''s music will keep anyone groovin'' all night long.
Jive Train is anchored by its funky rhythm section of Brett Smith (drums) and Terry Acosta (bass). These two lay down the groove that allows Esco McCollum (keyboard) and Russ Bryant (keyboards and saxophone) to add lush harmonies and burnin'' solos, while Kevin''s sweet, soulful vocals quickly grabs the listener and pulls them into every song.
Their writing has been developing since the band formed and is constantly changing from the bands various influences and musical experiences. Jive Train has shared the stage with such great musicians as the Temptations, Charmaine Neville, and Rockin Doopsie, Jr. As an in demand band on the college and club circuit they are continuing to gather their fans and put out more original music. Be on the lookout for where they will go next.
