Alex McGrath: Vocals: With more than 20 years as a pro singer, Alex has a wealth of experience as a vocalist/frontman and session singer for Radio, TV. His searing range, and powerhouse vocal combined with a dynamic musicality, charisma and a great sense of humour made him the perfect choice to front Last Train Band

Adrian Dear: Bass, Vocals: A regular performer on the acoustic/roots scene and an established singer songwriter in his own right, Adrian brings a melodic touch to the bass playing for Last Train Band. He has worked as a semi pro guitarist and teacher for 20 years, writing and collaborating with musicians throughout the Northwest and beyond.

Terry has toured extensively in Europe, the Middle East and America, backing artists as diverse as bluesman Eric Burdon (Montreux Jazz Festival), country singer Ferlin Husky, and Tommy Allsop (Buddy Holly’s Guitarist).He earned his reputation as a driving rock drummer and has played on many recording and TV dates including the original cut of Colonel Bagshot’s ‘Six Days’- which DJ Shadow had a massive hit with. He regularly works in TV and film on both sides of the camera. Loves the band’s original music, and powering out those Last Train grooves.

Ainsley Dunn: Guitars: Born and raised on Classic rock ‘n roll , Ainsley has found his feet in LTB. Diversions into an eclectic mix of musical ventures over the last 10 years would ultimately always see him return to his first love of grooving rock music. Of the philosophy “if I’m not tapping my foot, why should anybody else” Ainsley brings strong rhythms and thoughtful melodies mixed with a great enthusiasm for the music.

Ray Palfreyman: guitars,sax : Went down to the Crossroads in the late sixties, cut his musical teeth in the pubs and clubs of his native Newcastle and ended up forming Last Train Band in Liverpool in 2007.
