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.
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.
