From the Road to the Rails: Country Time at the Guggenheim. Double concert with the country-rock bands Route 65 & Night-Train.
"Route 65" has been on the "Road to Country Music" since 2013. The band from Northwestern Switzerland plays a modern direction of country music and allows itself again and again to leave well-trodden paths and explore stylistic boundaries.
Three outstanding lead voices and the unmistakable trademark of the band, the three-part harmony vocals, give the band sound its varied profile. Virtuoso soloists on lead guitar, lap steel, mandolin and piano set the instrumental highlights; a solid rhythm section with bass and drums lays the foundation.
The versatility of the repertoire and the joy of playing of the six musicians, the mix of rock songs, classic honky tonk sound and soulful ballads as well as the adaptations of well-known country songs in Swiss dialect, which are skillfully woven into the repertoire, are able to inspire the audience at events of different sizes again and again.
The musical background of all band members is broad, and so there is no fear of contact with other musical styles. If you listen carefully, you will always be able to hear influences of blues, soul and rock'n'roll.
Night-Train play with energy and passion guitar-heavy and powerful country-rock cover songs by Bonnie Raitt, Lady Antebellum, Vince Gill, Gretchen Wilson, Blackberry Smoke, Sugarland, Keith Urban, Tim McGraw, Kenny Chesney and Jason Aldean.
Night-Train has an experienced American in John Kunz on lead vocals and fiddle. Naly O'Donnell (lead & backing vocals, piano/organ) has a degree in music. Stoeffu Vogt needs no further introduction as lead guitarist (with Buddy Dee &the Ghostriders), as does Jean-Pierre Berchier on bass (ex Hanery Ammann Band). Daniel Bruhin, known as lead guitarist in the blues scene (ex Lazy Dogs) and Beat Mühlemann (ex Motel7) on drums, make Night-Train complete.
