DJ Allen Rockhouse
A veteran DJ for fourteen years, Allen Rockhouse got his start playing with Terrence Young under the roof of a partially built house. Working for years to master his skills, Allen Rockhouse now boasts one of the most distinctive scratching styles and a penchant for break-dancing during his sets.
Touring all-over the midwest, Rockhouse has devoted much of his time to perfecting his craft. Rockhouse’s passion for music is evident in all of his sets and his versatile mixes can contain rock, hip-hop, dubstep, breaks, and more. Rockhouse’s enthusiasm behind the decks is absolutely contagious and crowds can’t help but be moved when he is behind the one’s and two’s.
