The Rough Housers

The Rough Housers
Ifyou’re ready to rock ‘n’ roll, stand up now!

The Rough Housers are a trio of rockabilly lovin’ dudes, bringing energetic fun to audiences with their own versions of great rock ‘n’ roll and rockabilly classics from years gone by. Formed by three members of popular local group Murphy’s Lore with a mutual love of rock ‘n’ roll, country and rockabilly, The Rough Housers set out to get people up and dancing.

Formed over nine beers and a mutual love of all things rockabilly; country licks, standing up, thumping bass, slapback vocals and songs about cars and girls, the three chaps who form the powerhouse backbone of erstwhile Perth pop rock band Murphy's Lore decided that their time was NOW.

Rockabilly music, if it needs to be pigeonholed (and it really doesn’t, however), is a country and rock and roll crossover that defined the late 50’s and brought stardom to Elvis, Roy Orbison, Carl Perkins, Jerry Lee Lewis and Johnny Cash amongst many others. While the Stray Cats and other noted revival artists have added a distinctly punk ethos to the rockabilly epithet, no one can deny the raw energy and pure fun delivered by swingin’ rockabilly tunes.

The trio consists of local gun guitarist Jason ‘J Eddy’ Smith on hollow-body twanging geetar, Mr Kieran Murphy on standin’ up drums and hollerin’, and Shaun ‘110th’ Street on upright bass and background hollerin’. Following on from the famed work of such luminaries as Gene Vincent, Eddie Cochrane, Carl Perkins, Johnny Cash, Ronnie Hawkins and the king himself Elvis Presley, The Rough Housers are getting ready to bring down the house!

Testimonial - Matthew Brennan - Jones, Wedding

We were over the moon with the Rough Houses. Shaun was so helpful in the lead up to the wedding and on the day he helped immensely and went above and beyond to make our whole experience amazing. The band put on a great show, all our guests absolutely loved it, young and old, even my 90 year old granddad was having a boogie. It really was fantastic and couldn't recommend them highly enough.
