Madison punk band Shock Treatment focuses much of its setlist as a tribute to the classic New York City raucous band The Ramones.

So when the group members, now mostly in their 40s and 50s, take the stage on Saturday night at JoeyG's Restaurant and Nightclub, don't expect a sedated sound.

"We play pretty loud; pretty fast," said Scott Koerner, one of the band's founders.

The band includes: Koerner on guitar, Mark Bear on drums, Jeff Corbin on guitar, Davy Harmon on lead vocals, Dale Davis on tamborine/backup vocals, and Curt Vanderbur on bass.

Local band Down for Peace will start the show at 9 p.m., and Shock Treatment will follow at 10:30 p.m.

Koerner said the group will play for about an hour and focus mostly on The Ramones' catalogue, though they will perform three originals.

The band formed in 2003 after a series of jam sessions brought the seven members together. Now Shock Treatment has six members, but other friends sometimes join in the show, Koerner said.

Staying true to their punk-rock influences for almost 10 years now, the band also has stayed true to its mission statement, which is to give all proceeds to King's Daughters' Health's Hospice program.

There is no entry charge for Saturday's show, but Koerner said the band always accepts donations for hospice.
