The pulsing tempo of steel wheels on an iron track make for the perfect percussion to accompany live music amidst wild Arizona scenery. Back by popular demand, Verde Canyon Railroad proudly presents “Rhythm on the Rails” on select evenings during the 2021 summer season.
Several musical groups representing diverse melodic genres will rotate throughout the train, performing private concerts in each of the historic passenger cars after the train rolls out of the Clarkdale depot at 5:30 p.m..
The euphonic adventure through one of the West’s most scenic inner canyons is heightened by plush furnishings, fresh appetizers, and an extensive selection of wine, beer and chic cocktails served at one’s seat … savored to the sophisticated sounds of accomplished musicians.
While melodies reverberate inside, the Canyon takes center stage outside the panoramic windows or from the vantage point of an outdoor-viewing car. Throughout the journey, the soaring red rock walls are painted with a sunset radiance that gives way to a sky punctuated with vibrant stars and a romantic moonglow. 2021 event dates: May 29, June 26, July 24, August 21 and Sept. 18.
