About Us

Welcome to Spencer & The Elegant Blackouts official website!!

No frills, no nonsense pure Rock & Roll is what they’re all about. Three chords with a honkytonk chaser, Spencer & the Elegant Blackouts serves up bold, energetic and liberating music that is just what that inner rebel has been dying for! With gutsy, gritty vintage tones mixed with a twist of love, life and other misadventures.

Formed in 2016, Spencer & the Elegant Blackouts came together from the streets of Philadelphia when Spencer Willhouse (Dogtown Balladeers/ Scarlet Fever) and Eric Mauro (Dogtown Balladeers/ Scarlet Fever) got together and reminisced over the music they had made together some years before. The cocktails and conversation flowed and so did a growing need to get back to the roots of Rock & Roll and churn out some soul moving music!

As chance would happen, Spencer met Chris Herninko at a video shoot and they found that they had a mutual love for Rock & Roll and all things music. Spencer, Eric and Chris would begin tinkering with melodies and riffs and came to the realization they were onto something very special that needed to flourish. Chris would then introduce Jojo Buerklin and Sean Flynn to bring the backbone of Spencer & The Elegant Blackouts all together.

Spencer & The Elegant Blackouts rocked onto the scene in 2018 with the debut E.P. “Hangovers & Hangers On” and a string of live dates. Receiving praise and positive reviews, the band jumped back into the studio to record a second E.P. titled “The Party Never Ends”.

A release date has yet to be announced for “The Party Never Ends”, but with the release of the single “Just Another Heartache”, gives a taste of what’s to come!!
