In 1993, the San Francisco-based American pop rock group Train was founded. Pat Monahan (lead vocals), Taylor Locke (guitar, vocals), Hector Maldonado (bass, vocals), Jerry Becker (keyboards, guitar), Matt Musty (drums), Sakai Smith (backup vocals), and Nikita Houston (backup vocals) make up the band's current roster as of 2021.
Train's 1998 debut album, "Train," which included the number-one single "Meet Virginia," helped the group gain widespread popularity. Their second album, "Drops of Jupiter," which was released in 2001 and featured the hit song of the same name that won two Grammy Awards in 2002, helped them to continue their success. The album's double platinum certification solidified Train's standing as a major force in the music business.
Their third album, "My Private Nation," was published in 2003 and included the number-one single "Calling All Angels." It was given a platinum certification in the US. The band took a two-year break from recording after their fourth album, "For Me, It's You," which was released in 2006 but received favorable reviews from critics, failed to find commercial success.
"Save Me, San Francisco" by Train was released in 2009 and produced the hit singles "Hey, Soul Sister," "If It's Love," and "Marry Me." The RIAA and ARIA both awarded the album gold certification. With the release of "California 37" in 2012, Train continued to enjoy success. This album included the smash song "Drive By," which peaked at number 10 on the Billboard Hot 100.
Several albums have been published by Train since then, including "Bulletproof Picasso" in 2014, "Christmas in Tahoe" in 2015, "Train Does Led Zeppelin II" in 2016, "A Girl, a Bottle, a Boat" in 2017, and "AM Gold" in 2022. Train is one of the best-selling American pop rock bands of all time, having sold more than 30 million songs and 10 million albums worldwide..

Frequently Asked Questions about booking Train to perform.
Many performers, actors, speakers and other talent like Train in certain cases will consider virtual appearances via live streaming. They perhaps may accept lower fees too. If you are seriously interested in booking Train or other talent shown on our site, we will research their desire and the specific fee for your live-streaming event or project request.
Train's current work schedule and location in relation to your event's type, date, budget, and locality will play a primary factor in the acceptance of booking Train for your party.

CTI can give you the accurate Train booking price once we submit your event details to their camp. "How much does it cost to book Train for an event?" is a frequent question we get. The final Train booking price is contingent on many variables and the booking fee we may show is based on a range derived from our past experience with what will Train charge for an event. An example fee to book Train is in the starting range of $300,000-$499,000. However, any recent popularity change would cause a price fluctuation well beyond this example. Also, their speaking fee might be different than the fee shown for the cost to perform or to just appear. Popularity, career stage, along with current demand will cause fluctuations in their speaking price as well. The final booking price may be more than what is shown, but you should at least have a budget within that range for them to consider an appearance, performance or speaking engagement.
There is low probability to book Train for a party with anything substantially less than the published booking cost price range. We will negotiate with the Train agent on your behalf if your funding is in place. By not having funding ready then it will more difficult to book Train, because they get many offers to work events that are at or above asking price. It is also important to consider the travel costs when researching the Train booking fee, as additional expenses like this, as well as an entourage of staff and equipment, are not necessarily built-in to the booking fee range shown. If your budget does not factor that in, then there is no benefit for them to want to be hired. We do not personally speak for Train, but in our experience in booking talent for over 25 years, this is generally the outcome of inadequate funding.
