"IPO Festival"

Steve Ramone & The Pensioners – Ramone is a Midwest born and bred singer songwriter with a love for all kinds of sounds, and who proudly proclaims on his Soundcloud page that a three minute pop song with a great hook really does the trick…a sentiment with which we at IPO could not agree more, and which is clearly evident on his band’s new Snowballs In The Summer EP! The band also features long-time Midwest power-pop legend Chip Z’nuff on bass, and we’re truly honored that they’ve chosen to make IPO Chicago their debut live performance! - David Bash

"Local Anesthetic 93.1 WXRT"

I’ve never devoted a lot of time (air or otherwise) to the International Pop Overthrow fest that takes place at the Red Line Tap April 14-23 but this year I happen to be spinning a number of bands that will be performing. Up this week is Steve Ramone who will be playing on April 17 with a band featuring Chip Znuff on bass, Phil Miller of Sonia Dada on guitar, ex-Survivor/Blotto drummer Joe Kunkel, and Bruce Breckenfeld on keys. Sweet! There you go. Goodness awaits on this week’s Local Anesthetic, Sunday night at 7:30 here on XRT. - Richard Milne


Still working on that hot first release.



Following a long Chicago tradition of Power Pop-Rock bands like Cheap Trick and Material Issue, Steve Ramone has been plugging away on the South Side of town for long enough.  With a crack band in tow, featuring Enuff Z'Nuff founder Chip Znuff on bass and long time Sonia Dada guitarist Phil Miller, Steve Ramone & The Pensioners are ready to bring the party to your event!
The songs are melodic, bouncy and fun.  The band is seasoned, driven, and completely on its game.  The pace is fast and the crowd spends its time moving, tapping their feet, and taking it all in.  

The entire performance is overseen by our own tour manager, road crew, media assistants and staff.  You can rest assured the tone is completely professional until show time.  Before and after the show you count on us to be great team players!
