About the House Band

The House Band

Pacific Palisades-Malibu, California

The House Band began in the early days of the 21st century as a group of respected professionals, none in entertainment, to play and enjoy the music we’ve always loved for our families, friends, and ourselves.  The House Band has evolved into what some have called “the premier party band in town”, and others have called “too loud”.

The House Band has also been described as a: rock band that can make the audience dance; a Grateful Dead influenced cover band; not a jazz band, but a jam band; a dads’ garage band.

The House Band has played all of the major clubs (The Mint, Roxy, Viper Room, etc., etc., etc.) and a ton of parties in Malibu, Pacific Palisades, Venice, Silver Lake, etc.
