SOL DRIVEN TRAIN
This band has been known to blow up the stage! Sol Driven Train got the crowd going during their last performance at the Beach Bar so much so that the dancing spilled onto the beach. Their music weaves through genres like images in a Tom Robbins paragraph. The band’s sonic schizophrenia absorbs songwriting influences like John Prine and Paul Simon, afro-caribbean rhythmic explorations, and funky New Orleans-style brass into earnest songs of life, love, loss, and long johns. Based in Charleston, SC, this versatile five piece band rotates lead vocalists, and multi-instrumental talent spread across horns, strings, and percussion. Combining rich varieties of American pop and folk music into their own port-town sound, Sol Driven Train has carved out a unique musical identity within the burgeoning roots music scene.
The Windmill Bar offers a nice selection of drinks and one of the most amazing views of any venue on island. It’s quite stunning! If you’re lucky, you’ll see a green flash as the sun dips below the horizon. Cheers!
