Westbound Train

Westbound Train

If the classic soul, smooth reggae, upbeat ska and distinctive storytelling found all over Westbound Train’s album, Come and Get It, has you stepping into your neighborhood record shop in search of Otis Redding, the Wailers, or The Specials, nobody would be more stoked than the members of Boston's best modern reggae/soul outfit.

…Westbound Train wants to be your gateway drug.

The Snails

It's hard to definitively nail down a genre when asked what style of music is that of The Snails, but their goals and passion come from a clear love of the music that has influenced them as a band. From the music of The Clash, early ska, and old reggae favorites like Toots and the Maytals comes The Snails' motivation to keep authentic music around, that is, emotional music which carries a genuine message to its listeners. Their influences are extremely important in keeping their music and goals alive. The band's lyrics are written by Todd Fausnacht whose inspiration clearly originates from personal experiences, political and social controversies, and the wisdom of Joe Strummer. At a Snails show, it's easy to feel the elements of punk, ska, rockabilly, reggae, 50's rock and roll, and even a dash of old-time country folk music making it effortless to break out in skanking, moshing, and 50's swing and twist. However you want to move, the feel-good, and not to mention educational, tunes will get you going, and standing still is not an option. "Ska and soul with a side of rock and roll!" is what The Snails always say.
