About Salem Roadhouse Café

Dedication best defines the Salem Roadhouse Café: dedication to excellent music and dedication to the community. As its tenth year begins, Salem Roadhouse Café reaffirms its commitment to both.

Started in 2008 by members of Townley Presbyterian Church with a grant from the Presbytery of Elizabeth, the Roadhouse Café continues to operate as a non-profit that raises funds for several carefully chosen local charities. That may be its social mission… but the Roadhouse Café is and has been a performance venue beloved by the musicians who play there because of its special intimacy with the audience.

Church music, it’s not

The Roadhouse Café has always offered its stage to local and independent main stream musicians. It’s a clean, safe place for people who enjoy listening to live music, in a world of clubs and bars. Jazz, rock, folk and other groups have performed. During the past ten years well over 100 different entertainers have appeared. Local fine artists also display their works.

Community orientation

The Salem Roadhouse Café has raised funds for many carefully chosen charities. They include: The Presbytery of Elizabeth E-port Center, Center For Hope Hospice, Community Food Bank, Monarch Housing, Angel Paws Animal Rescue, National MS Society, Haiti Disaster Relief, Hurricane Sandy Disaster Relief, The Union County YWCA Domestic Violence Program, Making It Possible To End Homelessness, Camp Johnsonburg, The Music Institute, and others. Thousands of dollars have been raised for these deserving charities.

The musicians who play the Roadhouse often ask to return as soon as possible. The Roadhouse has given them a place with good acoustics, a live, attentive audience, and a sound system that is first class.

Now well into its tenth year of operation, the Salem Roadhouse Café plans to feature many of the performers who have graced the stage in the past, as well as bring talent that is new to the Café stage. The current season will be benefitting Groundwork Elizabeth – Changing Places, Changing Lives

Admission includes the show, snacks, beverages plus the art gallery.

Union 34TV records the shows for broadcast — so check out past shows on cable TV34. See the Roadhouse on Union TV Channel 34’s “Union After Dark” nightly music series.

As you recall in the fable, the hare brags about his ability to beat the tortoise and is overly confident about winning.
