The Cheesebrokers are a 80's music cover band founded in 1991 in Tuscaloosa.

The original lineup included Paul "Col. Keg" Milazzo on vocals and guitars, Matt "Pix Dixon" Mathis on guitars, Michael "Manimal" Green on bass, and John "Johnny Nitro" Harford on drums. Tim "Hambone" Tucker joined to provide keyboards and backing vocals. The band was a mainstay at the Ivory Tusk.

The Cheesebrokers were performing at Five Points Music Hall late on the evening of January 19, 1997 when the artist then no longer known as Prince showed up after a show at Boutwell Auditorium. After much cajoling, he performed "Raspberry Beret" with the band and later took the stage for a 45-minute set with his New Power Generation, using the Cheesebrokers' instruments.

Green moved to the west coast in the late 1990s, prompting Mathis to switch to bass guitar. He left a couple of years later and Milazzo put together a new lineup. Later members have included Hambone, Whitney "Miss Divine" Inscho, Bobby "Bumble B." Blount, Jeff "Sweet N Low" Sharp, Josh "EZ Lovin" Lovvorn, Sugah Valentino, Biscuit and Stan "Mr Brownstone" Anderson.
