The Runaway Train Cult

Function Band - Johannesburg
The Runaway Train Cult


The Runaway Train Cult were formed out of a love of playing live acoustic music and an attitude that they are there for the audience & not the other way round.

It is a 5 piece band (guitar, bass, violin, ukulele, banjo/mandolin, vocals) with the option of a 6th (drummer) The band is “danceable” without a drummer however for larger dance focused events drums are recommended. Their music will make people dance, laugh or cry.

With almost any genre of music sounds fresh, though folk roots, country, bluegrass and hillbilly get special attention. Their style ranges from Americana to Gypsy Jazz. Should budget be problematic they can play smaller events as a 4 piece.
