Our Song List

A Pink Houses show promises to treat every John Mellencamp fan to all of their favorite tunes, from his very beginnings and best-known classic to his most-recent hit songs. Pink Houses takes you on a musical journey punctuated by some of the most well-known songs ever performed by an American artist!

In addition, a Pink Houses show features a number of tunes by artists not named John Mellencamp.

Rockin' since 2003!

Ask any of the thousands of people throughout the Midwest who have witnessed a Pink Houses show and it’s likely you’ll get a reply suggesting that this 11-piece band is the closest thing to the real deal.

Consider this: How many self-described tribute bands actually get to perform for their particular artist’s hometown fan base under the guise of that artist’s “Ultimate Tribute Band” and then pull it off not just once, but two years in a row?

PINK HOUSES HAS!
