About
A small act with a big vintage sound that is perfect for any event! Featuring skillful piano and rich female vocals, Mama Train performs as a duo, trio, or 4 piece band, a versatile group that is available to play events and venues ranging from weddings to corporate functions, fundraisers, wine-tastings, private dinner events and even Sunday brunch. This jazz/blues band delivers soulful melodies and uptempo jazz instrumentation that resonate with every audience. Mama Train transports listeners to another era with the old time feel of artists like Billie Holiday and Django Reinhardt and then always brings them back with a modern-day vibe.

This 5 star review is easy to write. Of all the vendors in our wedding, Sumitra and Philip were the most pleasant and responsive. They asked thoughtful questions, were forthcoming with concerns and accomodated specially requested contemporary numbers. They even offered a preview listening of the song for our first dance. Didn't miss any detail and worked smoothly through logistics, even after traveling from 2 hours away. No divas, just class-act talent! Along with our guests, we were enchanted by every minute of their performance. Thanks Mama Train for memories that will last us the rest of our lives. We'll be recommending you to everyone we can.

My wife and I are so grateful to have had Mama Train as our wedding band. You all are so incredibly talented, kind, professional, and lovely and you absolutely killed it at the wedding! We can't even tell you how many guests came up to us during the night asking about how we found such a unique band and just generally singing your praises. Everyone found it so refreshing to be at a wedding with a different sort of band and fell in love with your sound and look.

We hired Mama Train to play at our "Renewal of Vows' ceremony. They were absolutely fantastic. They were very accommodating when I asked if they could learn how to play a song that my husband and I liked and were just a delight to deal with. The manager of the Inn where we had our event was so impressed with them that she put them on their recommended wedding band list. They're extremely professional, very talented and just lovely people. Don't hesitate to book them - We highly recommend them.
