The Steve Ramone Band
A product of the far south side of Chicago, Steve Ramone has been a mainstay in the city’s thriving music scene for almost a decade. His mix of blue-collar, pop-rock-n-roll is informed by the environment in which he grew up, and it is in his music where you’ll have to look for insight into his thoughts and feelings on his upbringing. From the outside Ramone comes off as fun loving and mild-mannered, on stage he’s entertaining, but much more focused and precise – a workman-like demeanor that belies the tradesmen tradition that was ubiquitous in the world he grew up in. The plumbers, carpenters and concrete workers he grew up with play prominent roles in his songs and stories.
