The Midnight Ghost Train
The Midnight Ghost Train is a heavy blues / hard rock band hailing from Topeka, Kansas. They have been most commonly described as hard rock, and related to bands like Kyuss, Black Sabbath, and Clutch. The band was originally formed by frontman Steve Moss in Buffalo, NY in 2008 – as a eulogy to his best friend John Goff, who had suddenly deceased a year earlier. “Something had to be done,” Steve says. “John’s memory and life has to be remembered in some way.” Moss then moved to Buffalo, New York planning to form a band, cut an album, and start touring. This was the idea and drive that fuelled The Midnight Ghost Train’s engine. The band's name comes partially from a Hank William's song lyric in ‘I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry’. The current line up consists of Steve Moss (guitar, vocals), Brandon Burghart (drums) and Mike Boyne (bass).
Known for their energetic live performances, this impulsive trifecta torch dark'n'dirty Southern Rock with a heavy dose of the Blues and Funk. Seared by the Sunflower State of Kansas, their organic and authentic sound lives in the musics throaty vocals, deep lyrics, melancholic melodies and forceful, shaky riffs. Roaring amps plow through eardrums as if they were earth, dry as a bone. Honest & straight. And with their new album 'Cypress Ave.', which marks the band's most diverse record to date, THE MIDNIGHT GHOST TRAIN is an absolute must for any blues- and rock fans!
