The best kept secret in music


"surf guitar 101"

"The Broken Spokes rolled out their sturdy twang to cap the evening. These guys are quite impressive, not only because they’ve got such a great old school country vibe, and not only because they can launch into a stunning surf instrumental at the drop of a Stetson, and not even because they make the combination work so well together. No, what REALLY blows my mind is how YOUNG they are.

Just when I’m about ready to give up and assume that nobody under 30 still knows what ’50s and ’60s roots-music actually sounded like, along comes a fresh-faced green outfit like The Broken Spokes to play just the right cover songs, and to stir up memorable originals in precisely the same spirit, and by doing so to remind me that there’s still hope for rock and roll, there’s still hope for roots-country, and that there will always be a place for twangy and reverb-drenched instrumentals. The Spokes’ smoldering surf rendition of “House of the Rising Sun” managed to keep me smiling until the sun actually did rise, just a few hours later. Way to go, boys! "

Still working on that hot first release.


Feeling a bit camera shy


The Broken Spokes got together in 2004 to bring their unique blend of surf rock, country, and rockabilly to the city of Atlanta and the world. Taking ideas from Elvis, Cash, Link Wray, and The Two Dollar Pistols, the band is first and foremost about rocking out. They have played a variety of local venues from The Earl to the Clarkston Surf Festival and can be entertaining in almost any setting
