The guys in Train are pretty pumped for the Super Bowl this year: not only is their beloved San Francisco 49ers one of the teams playing, but they're headlining this year's VH1's BEST Super Bowl CONCERT EVE R .  It airs Friday night at 9 p.m. ET/PT, live from the Sugar Mill in New Orleans' Warehouse District, and will be hosted by Live with Kelly & Michael's Michael Strahan , as well as VH1's Carrie Keagan .

Train has been in New Orleans for most of this week, serving as the house band on The Talk , which has been airing live from the Big Easy.

Meanwhile, the band has launched yet another signature wine .  This one is called Soul Sister Pinot Noir, which the band says was inspired by their time "playing at small rock clubs in San Francisco."  The 2011 varietal is described as having the flavors of ripe cherries and strawberries, with a hint of vanilla.  It won't ship until March, but you can pre-order it now at SaveMeSanFrancisco.com.  

Like all the band's signature wines, the proceeds go to Family House , a San Francisco-area charity that helps the families of kids with life-threatening illnesses.
