What began as two guys with powerhouse
vocals and one guitar evolved into Train by 1994. It was in late 1993 that Patrick Monahan exited his hometown of Erie, Pennsylvania,
following the demise of his Led Zeppelin cover band. He relocated to California and met Rob Hotchkiss. Hotchkiss had been
the lead singer of the band, Apostles. The two teamed up to establish their own musical duo, gigging at local coffeehouses.
They eventually branched into a trio, adding Jim Stafford, who was also a former member of the Apostles. Later on, drummer
Scott Underwood and bassist Charlie Colin signed on, completing the band's lineup in 1994.
Over the span of several
years, Train cultivated a loyal following in the San Francisco area. They also embarked on a number of tours, opening for
acts like the Counting Crows, Cracker, Hootie & the Blowfish and the Barenaked Ladies. They were able to raise enough
money to front an album. Eventually, Train was able to draw the attention of Columbia Records, who arranged for Train to sign
on with Aware Records, one of its smaller labels. Aware released Train's eponymous, self-financed premiere record in 1998.
A year later, Meet Virginia made it to the Top 40. But 2001 served as the band's breakthrough year when Drops of Jupiter landed.
Thanks to the titular single, Drops of Jupiter claimed multi-platinum success. The tune remained planted in the Top 40 for
close to 40 weeks, while the album sold over three million copies.
In 2003, My Private Nation came out, which also earned
platinum status, mainly because of its infectious single, Calling All Angels, which incidentally became the unofficial anthem
for the L.A. Angels of Anaheim baseball team.
Although the album didn't score any more Top 40 successes, three of its
tunes still made a dent on the adult contemporary charts. The album, For Me, It's You, came out in 2006. A year later, Monahan
went solo, touring to support it. He came back to the fold to release Train's Save Me, San Francisco. The catchy, Hey, Soul
Sister, climbed to No. 3 on the Billboard 100. California 37 followed in 2012.

Besides making music,
Train members are involved in several other ventures. They are the proprietors of the Save Me, San Francisco Wine Company.
The band partnered up with ACME Wine Movers in 2011, selling wine that is named after their various hit songs. Their inventory
includes: Calling All Angels Chardonnay, Drops of Jupiter California Red, Hella Fine Merlot, California 37 Cabernet Sauvignon
and Soul Sister Pinot Noir. And nothing goes better with wine than chocolate. The company collaborated with Ghiradelli Chocolate
Company to peddle confections and chocolates with the wine. The venture supports the Family House of San Francisco, with a
percentage of the proceeds donated to help this organization that supports families of children with life-threatening diseases
Train Concert Experience
A force to be reckoned with since their inception and today, Train
has cemented a solid reputation as a rock band of considerable talent. Songs such as Drops of Jupiter and Calling All Angels
made the San Francisco stars some of America's most coveted singers, belting out hits that captivate audiences everywhere
they go. While Train was established during the glory days of alternative rock immediately following the demise of grunge,
the group found more success as a pop rock band. They have managed to craft a sound that has appealed to a wide range of audiences,
and they've never abandoned that dedication to making music everybody loves to sing along with.
