Epic in sound and kaleidoscopic in vision, the eclectic Martha’s Vineyard-based six piece Entrain has been thrilling critics and fans alike since its inception. “The whole Entrain concept is based around the drums and infectious rhythms. Once we’ve got that…. anything goes, everything goes,” explains Major. “The most important thing that we try to do with our music is bring everybody together in the spirit of peace, love, fun and a ton of drums!”
Since its inception, Entrain has jammed with the likes of singer/songwriter James Taylor, Grateful Dead alum Bob Weir and rock legend Bo Diddley, and amateur saxophonist and professional leader of the Free World Bill Clinton. Entrain continues to perform as a hugely popular live act throughout the northeast and mid-Atlantic, and in 1995 the band garnered a Boston Music Award for Best Live Show.
Entrain’s goal is not just to be the biggest and the best, says Major. “We want to create music that makes people feel good. When we look out from the stage, all we see is smiling faces of all ages and bodies moving. You can’t beat that feeling. At the same time if we can help to promote positive values and lifestyles… great! There’s enough negativity in the world, let’s spread a little joy around and watch how infectious it can be.”
Formed by drummer Tom Major in 1993, Entrain is also lead singer/guitar wiz Brian Alex. Joining them is bassist M’Talewa, saxophonist/keys/percussionist Rob Loyot, saxophonist/percussionist Hilary Noble and Trombone/keys Lennie Peterson Veterans all, their collective resume includes stints with such diverse players as Bo Diddley, Carly Simon, Chuck Berry, Southside Johnny, James Mongomery, Flor De Cana, and Blood, Sweat, and Tears.
