Performing the Best of Classic Rock Throughout Chicago

We are Looney Train, a group of experienced musicians who will show you some good time. As a classic rock band, we play to entertain crowds around the Chicago, IL area. Hear us perform our music with passion and infectious energy that you grew up loving so much.

About Us

We have been playing throughout the Chicago metropolitan area for more than 11 years. Our music is a great mix of classic rock covers and originals.

In the Beginning

We started out as part of a Beatles and Monkees cover band. Having enough of the Monkees stuff, the four of us went off to do the songs we all loved to play.

Our route to rehearsals was always around Franklin Park, IL, a suburb of Chicago, which was surrounded by three railroad yards. Having a laugh about Monty Python’s Flying Circus as we were stuck behind trains, we realized two of our members used to be in a band called Spot the Looney. That was when came up with our name Looney Train.

What Inspires Us

Despite sharing many of the same interests and pastimes, we all are inspired by different things that lead us to work seamlessly in a creative setting. Our mantra is, “If it’s no longer fun, we are done.” We can definitely claim that we are still having fun!

Our Influences

The music that we play has been influenced by all of the classic rock of the ‘60s, ‘70s, and ‘80s. Artists include Tom Petty, The Who, Uriah Heep, Kiss, Cream, Allman Brothers, Doobie Brothers, Todd Rundgren, The Romantics, John Cougar Mellencamp, Badfinger, Styx, Pink Floyd, and more. These musical influences have been reflected in the songs that we write.
