Time Flies is a true funk band from Amsterdam, with no less than ten band members.
Three vocalists, who efforlessly switch between lead and backing vocals, a three-piece horn section, the funkiest of guitars and keys, and a powerful rhythm section. The repertoire consists of the fattest funk, but they don’t forget about the funk-rock variety. And there’s even room for the occasional soul slow jam. In short, music for lovers of music. You can dance to it, swing to it, even clean your living room to it. One thing you can’t do: sit still to it. Tip: wear comfortable shoes.

Tracorum's contagious musical journeying is a blend of southern swamp pop, soul, honky tonk, roots rock americana with a rhythmic diversity that adds elements of funk, latin-caribbean and gospel stomp to their unique sound. Great songwriting steeped in rich vocal harmonies and urban storytelling are the vehicle on which this powerful quartet had made their national ascent.
Tracorum has shared the stage with great acts such as Robert Randolph Family Band, Trombone Shorty, Rebirth Brass Band, Ivan Neville Dumpstafunk, Dirty Dozen Brass Band, Umphreys McGee, Bill Kreutzmann's (Grateful Dead) 7 Walkers, Mickey Hart Band (Grateful Dead), Anders Osborne, Leo Neocentelli and played great events like Sundance Film Festival, New Orleans Jazz Festival Night Shows, SXSW, High Sierra Music Festival, Hangtown Halloween Music Festival, 4 Peak Music Festival, and many more.
"Sometimes we listen to music without really hearing it. However, when we're ready to open up and experience a thing as it truly is, well, it can feel like a baptism. What they do is rock 'n' roll but done so fundamentally right it makes you want to kiss them when they power down their instruments. This night, as the festival raged like we'd never seen before on a Sunday eve, Tracorum embodied our collective high spirits and unspoken ache at this experience coming to a close and put those elements to work in some of the best boogie-minded, straight-great rock heard all weekend. Comparisons to The Band and studio aces The Wrecking Crew flitted through my brain as I danced to the heart of this fleeting makeshift town next to my loose-limbed sisters and brothers. Every aspect was right on the money and every man showed himself a massive talent on their respective instruments, pouring soul into every note, their conviction becoming our own."
– Dennis Cook, Jambase
The experience of seeing Trainwreck Trio live is something generations will pass down to their grand children. A force of nature to be witnessed when the circus comes to a town near you!
Trainwreck Trio debuted at Tamworth Country Music festival in 2012, with a view to playing completely spontaneous shows, where the audience would dictate the song list. What just began as a late night 'jam' concept, where other musicians at the festival would also join for 'guesties', quickly exploded into a fully fledged Australian touring machine. 2014 saw Trainwreck Trio play nearly 200 shows up the east coast of Australia, with trio members 'Janis the Wreck', 'Billy Ray Simon' and 'Give Stefan Hedberg' forced to go full time on the project. The Waterhole is proud to be part of the international tour, which is now in full swing.
