Joe Grushecky & The Houserockers

August 8, 2021 @ 7:30 pm

$30 – $45

For over 40 years, Joe Grushecky and his bandmates have been the epitome of blue-collar roots-rock & roll. Born in the coal mining hills surrounding Pittsburgh, Pa., Joe has cut a path of devastatingly honest shows from Pittsburgh to Asbury Park! In the musical tradition of artists like Bob Dylan, The Rolling Stones, John Mellencamp, Tom Petty and Bruce Springsteen, Joe Grushecky & the Houserockers (and before that they were the Iron City Houserockers) have been making American blue-collar rock that draws from classic rock ‘n roll, Memphis soul, folk songs, electric blues plus a dash of punk, since 1979 when he recorded and released his first album, Love’s So Tough. Albums such as Have A Good Time But Get Out Alive, the classic American Babylon (Produced and joined on the subsequent tour by Bruce Springsteen), East Carson Street, the stunning Somewhere East of Eden, It’s In My Song, More Todays than Yesterdays and the very passionate protest anthem “That’s What Makes Us Great” (again in collaboration with Springsteen) are just a sample of the numerous recordings that present Joe’s very singular, “down home” take on “living, working, family, politics and loving” in America. “In a better world, Joe Grushecky would live in a mansion down the road from Springsteen….Who do you know who has made back-to-back great albums more than 20 years ago and is doing the same thing now. There’s Dylan, Lucinda Williams, Neil Young, Springsteen, maybe a few more. He’s on that level.” Joe’s music and his band have certainly stood the test of time.
