If there is one band that can usher in a new wave of funk rock music, it is Tonic Freight Train. With an explosive sound that stems from a melting pot of influences, an intense passion for music, and funky personality, they deliver outstanding songs and an unforgettable live show.
Since they started, Tonic Freight Train has been seen playing shows in and around the Chicago area at venues such as The Subterranean, Bottom Lounge, and The Arcada Theater. Presenting a sound that takes most bands 10 years to achieve, they burst into the scene head first with an energy that no one can ignore. It was only made possible with Jake Kramer’s heavy-funk guitar riffs and Dan Dick’s passionate vocals/lyrics along with the help of Ben Alston’s intricate bass lines. Soon they are going to start the recording process on their debut album which will be filled with original and funky jams.
