HOUSEBROKEN ™ is a great rock ‘n roll band and one of the finest practitioners of classic rock to ever hit the Atlanta scene. Rocking Atlanta non-stop for over five years now, they play the music so well you might think you are listening to the original artists – Cheap Trick and Led Zeppelin, along with contemporary rock like U2, Smashmouth, Dishwallah and many, many more. The band likes to pick music that you know, but not “the obvious”. That’s why their ever-growing audience keeps coming back. The members of the band bring their extensive and varied musical experiences together to dive deep into the feel of each song, all while delivering an entertaining show. Rock fans are promised blazing music and a fun time.
Long live Rock!
