CJ West and The Downtown Train plays country, rock, rhythm & blues and "whatever!" They LIKE so many different styles of music, it would be a shame to limit what they play to one genre. The Downtown Train plays kickin' country music, classic and modern. Most of the band has rock and roll roots so mixing that in was a no-brainer. Then.....there's a lot of great other stuff out there.....and decades' worth! CJ West and The Downtown Train is always taking you somewhere! Sometimes they take you to summer country concerts, line-dancing parties or redneck weekends. Other times, they mix up a whole brew of music to keep everybody dancing. Lately, The Train take crowds to Woodstock, a tribute to the bands who graced the stage at Woodstock 1969. Whatever trip they're taking you on, this band's talented instrumentalists and well-blended voices add up to a unique, danceable and fun musical experience!

The Brownstone Quorum, Portland, CT said…
“The skies threatened and we had to take a break and the band unplugged and tarped their equipment. Not to be deterred, CJ West and Downtown Train had it covered. They grabbed their instruments and played acoustic, up close and personal. Awesome idea and a great way to keep the remaining crowd entertained and included! It was a big sing along!
Thank you all so much, especially for weathering the storm the way you did. Lots of groups would have refused to do anything beyond waiting for the skies to clear!”
The Durham Fair said.........
"The sounds of CJ West and the Downtown Train are expected at every Durham Fair. Harmonies are unique and the collaborations are spot on. CJ West has emerged as one of CT most popular country bands. However, it’s clear that not just the sounds of Country music have influenced this well balanced band. Rock and Blues can be heard throughout the performance all done with a contemporary flair. The bands stage presence creates an enjoyable time for all. Middlesex County can be proud to claim them as their own."

Lyman Orchards said..........
"I have hired CJ West and The Downtown Train for several years on various occasions. This summer, they will once again be playing music at this event, returning by popular demand."
"The Downtown Train’s musicians are top notch and, together, they are a great band. They are professional and easy to work with. They arrived, set up and played according to schedule. They are not “too loud”. Their equipment works properly and they break it down at the end of the performance on a timely basis, as well."
"We requested that CJ West and The Downtown Train play predominately country music and a mix of all types of music at our event. They did as they were asked and played a nice mix of music that was appropriate for the audience. They even played a few requests. The crowd loved them as always! -- Anthony R. - Entertainment Coordinator - Lyman's
