The Abe Train is a young professional and highly in demand Jazz Quartet based in the San Francisco Bay Area. Consisting of Piano, Upright Bass, Drums, and Saxophone, each member of the band is an expert at his instrument and together the band generates a dynamic and authentic Jazz sound, while constantly showcasing individuality in their music which is the main hallmark of Jazz. The band performs all the classics of Jazz with distinctive arrangements that are both faithful to the rich traditions of Jazz as well as innovative and original.

Performing professionally in the Bay Area since 2013, the band has been featured in almost every setting and event imaginable. The band has performed at numerous weddings, high profile corporate functions, parties, speakeasies, wineries, hotels, art galleries, restaurants, birthday parties, memorials, backyard barbeques, and even carnivals! The band has performed in venues big and small, from a house backyard to the Cliff House to the Starlight Room at Sir Francis Drake Hotel and beyond. The band is prepared for just about any situation when it comes to attire, attitude, and song selections!

While the core band constitutes the Quartet, the Abe Train works with various professional Bay Area musicians to augment the band to suit our clients' needs. From a solo piano background Jazz over dinner, to "getting it down" on the dance floor night, the band is able to work in many configurations - usually adding a professional guitarist and singer for a heavy duty dancing night. Any configuration of instruments can make great music, and the Abe Train strives to accomplish this every time.

The Abe Train is well versed in "Straight Ahead" Jazz with a repertoire that spans the last century of Jazz since its inception to the present day. The band's repertoire include selections from Louis Armstrong to Duke Ellington to Miles Davis, John Coltrane, Bill Evans, and Herbie Hancock. From Billie Holiday and Ella Fitzgerald to Sinatra and Tony Bennett. The band is well versed in the different styles of Jazz, from swing to bebop to funk and beyond. While primarily working with Jazz, the band is also well versed in the popular music genre: Hip Hop, R&B and top 40s. Should a client requests dancing, the band is able to perform music from artists such as Earth Wind and Fire, Michael Jackson, Beyoncé, Pharrell Williams, Bruno Mars, and beyond.

The Abe Train values professionalism at the highest level. The band is always on time, arrive prepared with the necessary gear, dress suited to the occasion, and will always sound and look good for your event!

If you are looking for a SOLID, YOUNG, PROFESSIONAL, and AWESOME Jazz Band for your event, look no further than the Abe Train!

We booked The Abe Train for an engagement party - they were incredible! Everyone was so impressed with the music! Many of our guests asked for contact information for their future events. The group was also incredibly proffessional and a joy to work with. Abe was very accommodating on calls before our recent. We met the rest of the group before the event started - they were all such nice guys and self-sufficient, taking care of all of their pre-party needs. I would highly recommend The Abe Train and plan to use them for our future parties.

The Abe Train played for a very high profile event my law firm hosted recently. Abe responded to my request for availability within 30 min and we had a call the following Saturday to discuss the details. I booked and paid them through this site (so easy!) and they showed up early looking sharp. They are total pros - super talented musicans, polished, friendly. I had a million things to do for this event and was so grateful to have hired a great band that totally delivered in every aspect. Would absolutely hire them again and recommend them to anyone looking to hire a cool, young jazz outfit. A+!
