A BRIEF HISTORY of GREAT TRAIN ROBBERY
Great Train Robbery has now entertained audiences for over 44 years, bringing it with their classic, smokey, Southern Rock sound. The Baltimore-based outfit has released nine albums and played well over 6,000 shows at night clubs, colleges, festivals, fairs, and corporate events over the decades. And we're still going strong! The band is proud to have shared the stage with many well-known acts such as The Allman Brothers Band, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Foghat, Blue Öyster Cult, .38 Special, The Marshall Tucker Band, Bachman-Turner Overdrive, Blackfoot, and many more!
Great Train Robbery began in February 1977 out of Bethany Beach, Delaware with our first show at Finnigans Rainbow in Ocean City, MD. Over the years we have played in every type of venue from civic centers to private parties, from Key West to Upstate New York. Great Train Robbery was inducted into the Maryland Entertainment Hall of Fame in 2017. And our legacy of rock continues!
The current GTR lineup of Dave Capozzoli, Freddie Vanover, Billy Weyforth, Shawn Hughes, and Aaron Fuller is proving to be one of our best incarnations yet!
