“ROCKIN’ THE RAILROAD!”
Rockin' across the railways and beyond, The Conductors bring you hip Family-Friendly entertainment with a Train Theme and a gondola of great original and traditional songs with an all-new twist to keep your ears listenin' and your toes a-tappin'.
Led by Educator and Chief Songwriter “Smokestack Joe”, The Conductors love to explore musical styles and employ their diverse influences from 50's Rockabilly and 60's Pop Rock, to Folk/Americana and pared-down Singer Songwriter format to deliver instantly memorable songs filled with imagery and themes that appeal to both children and their grown-ups alike.
This is music that is meant to be shared by the entire family. Offering something of substance for the parent to rock along to, yet fun and often meaningful (not-dumbed-down) children’s songs for the younger set.
With deep ties to the Special Needs Community, The Conductors began as a musical project when group leader and rock musician “Joe Normal” Hutchinson’s son Drayke was diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder at 3 ½ years old.
Drayke was fascinated by trains, which gave Joe the idea to marry both his son’s and his own passions… TRAINS & ROCK N ROLL, as a way to make connections with his child, and perhaps to give similar families an enjoyable experience and share the musical tools he discovers and works with at home and at play.
Since then, The Conductors have wowed audiences of all types and ages on TV, at Festivals, Museums, Schools, Libraries, Railroad & Charity Events, Metro Station openings, and numerous functions both public and private.
