if you're ready to dance, jump up!

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 & dancing. 

The trio consists of local gun guitarist Jason 'Eddy J' Smith on hollow-body twanging geetar, Kieran Murphy on standin' up drums and hollerin' & 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 & the king himself Elvis Presley, The Rough Housers are getting ready to bring down the house!
