Joe Grushecky’s music has stood the test of time. For over 30 years, publications such as Billboard, Rolling Stone, Village Voice, No Depression, and countless others have hailed him as one of rock & roll’s most talented singer-songwriters.
In 1979, Rolling Stone magazine crowned his band’s, the Iron City Houserockers, first album Love’s So Tough the “debut record of the year.” Acclaimed rock writer Jimmy Guterman named their second album, Have a Good Time (But Get Out Alive), as one of the 100 Best Rock & Roll Records of all time! Legendary guitarist and Rock Hall of Famer Steve Cropper produced Blood on the Bricks. Rock superstar and Hall of Famer, Bruce Springsteen, produced American Babylon in 1995 and continues to perform with the band and write with Joe including the GRAMMY Award-winning Code of Silence.
This is what Blurt Magazine has to say about the band’s live performances: “Grushecky & The Houserockers performed like they thought they were damn rock stars and, on that night, they were indeed the greatest rock 'n' roll outfit on the planet.”
In a world where truth is rare and nothing seems genuine anymore, some things remain constant… there is still real music being made out there. And Joe Grushecky & The Houserockers are still making it.
