About Us
Locomotion has been a crowd-favorite fixture on the Connecticut music scene since June 1987. Since then, the band has grown and evolved into one of southern New England's premiere club, dance, wedding, and party bands.

Featuring two lead singers and a full horn section, Locomotion's sound is distinctly diverse, with hot dance and party tunes from the 60's right up to today. Center stage, Locomotion covers hits from a huge array of artists and easily blends a variety of musical flavors: Rock, pop, R&B, Motown, disco, swing, jazz, and funk. Locomotion does it all.

The signature sound of their powerhouse horn section can be heard on just about every song they do. But the band really rips when they cover the most famous horn bands ever: Chicago, Tower of Power, and Earth-Wind-and-Fire.

Nominated in the Hartford Advocate's "Grand Band Slam" as a "Best Band" for 1998, 1999, and 2000, Locomotion was also named "Best Band In Connecticut 2003" by Connecticut Magazine.

Locomotion's performances include weddings, private parties and events, corporate functions, popular clubs, outdoor summer concerts, major fairs, and charitable fund raisers.
