The Windy City Soul Train has been part of the staple diet of Cairns music since 2001.

Originally formed as a house band for the world famous Johno's Blues Bar, the band has been through many incarnations and has featured guest musicians including original members of Steppenwolf, The Bondi Cigars, The Swinging Alley Katz, Johno's Blues Band and even Aussie music legends Jimmy Barnes and Phil Emmanuel.

The nucleus consists of a powerful three piece combo of Mikey Hayman (Guitar & Vocals), Bruce McKenzie (Bass) and Ben Hakalitz (Drums), however the band can expand up to an 8 piece ensemble consisting of keyboards and brass section, to suit any occasion or budget.

An unbeatable selection of classic rock, Top 40 hits, blues and soul tunes is crafted skilfully by experienced musicians in one of Cairns' best and long-lasting musical acts.

Yes, we have good quality, professional equipment and know countless songs for all types or crowds and moods.
