Accolades from our fans

Train Wreck Junction is a first class country band. As they roll through each set all you see is smiles on the audiences faces as they nail all the classic country and very cool new country sounds.

The band is tight. They have a blast with authentic sounds of spoons, pedal steel, country pickin and vocals from Nick Kardumn who is proving to be a major talent. It all adds up to a great night.

I wish I could book them every Saturday Night.

Dear Mr.Kardum and members of Train Wreck Junction,

I would like to Thank You and all the members of Train Wreck Junction. Your band has turned Sonoma Bar Battle in to one of the best events in Sonoma. Your presence at this event has enabled us , American Legion Post 489 and Native Sons of the Golden West to raise funds to give back to our veterans as well as providing for scholarships to our local schools…It is with great pleasure to work with local people who give back to our great community. I look forward to working with Train Wreck Junction in future events.

Train Wreck Junction has played at the Swiss Hotel for two consecutive summers. The band has a wonderful sound and energy. Each band member brings an artistic sound, when combined together makes for a great performance.
Being a hometown band in a very “local” venue, the crowd was swelling! TWJ plays for their crowd. They are able to read the energy of the crowd and create a playlist that is pure entertainment! The style of their music is a combination of classic country with a little rock that connects both the old school country lovers and todays young rockers! Nick Kardum is an amazing entertainer and performer. His voice is engaging and his charisma is addicting! He and the his band have potential to become “the next big thing”!
I look forward to another performance by TWJ at the Swiss Hotel!

Train Wreck Junction is a blast!!! Their shows at our place are awesome– it’s always packed, the music is rockin’, and the crowd always has a great time. The shows are high energy, and the vibe is always friendly and fun. They mix good ol’ rock n’ roll with that classic croonin’ country music, and really connect with the crowd. I can’t say enough good things– It’s always packed and super fun when they play at our place. They have a standing invite at our place any day of the week.

In a town ripe with Jazz, bluegrass and rock bands, Train Wreck Junction is a breath of fresh air. It’s nice to have a good ol’ honky-tonk band being able to lay down some classic country songs. “We don’t play any of that new country..” says Vocalist Nick Kardum, and good thing too. These are some good ol’ boys playin’ some good ol’ country tunes. Don’t miss ’em when they come to your town.

Train Wreck Junction was great! Everyone had a great time and got out on the dance floor all night. The set list was perfect for our group, the bands interaction with the guests was great and the sound and energy was ideal!! As an event planner, I appreciated that the band was easy to work with and professional. I’ve already recommended them to another client of mine.
Thanks so much!
