The Local Train band started in 2008 where Raman met Ramit and as he wanted to play the bass guitar in various songs which Raman had written. He met Ramit in Chandigarh Studio. The turning point came here when Ramit asked if they wanted to grow this on a bigger scale. Ramit then suggested Sahil as the drummer for the band. In 2011 Paras joined the band as the lead guitarist in the band. This all happened with a random lineup and now they are here for you as THE LOCAL TRAIN.

They performed for various colleges and various clubs. They started a very random and simple journey as every band starts! Slowly and slowly they started to grown. People started to love their music albums and songs. There came a point in their life when it was very hard to manage all gigs related stuff. They found a manager Himanshu Chowdhary.
