Joe has assembled an ensemble of versatile, experienced instrumentalists for his quintet. He sought players that are capable not only of performing in various jazz styles but also in interpreting material with little to no preparation as the group, in addition to performing their own gigs, also serves as the house band for a weekly open jazz jam session in central New Jersey.

During these weekly sessions, guest instrumentalists and vocalists are welcome to "sit in" and perform their own choice of jazz material, which may range anywhere from early swing to contemporary jazz. Stylistically, the quintet specializes in post-bop and latin jazz.

For the Salem Roadhouse Café show, the band will be featuring modern jazz-rock fusion, the genre that first inspired Joe to begin studying jazz in his teens

About Salem Roadhouse Café

Shh! The Roadhouse may be the best-kept secret in Northern New Jersey — the area’s best jazz, rock, and even the occasional folkie in an intimate coffeehouse venue. The Roadhouse only opens to the public on the second Saturday evening of the month. It’s where the area’s musicians go to hear other musicians, and you might find yourself sitting next to a famous jazz drummer or a vocalist from Australia. You never know.

Musicians love the audience that takes the time to find the Roadhouse, and when musicians love their audience, they play their hearts out. Why does it take time to find the Roadhouse? We’ve cleverly hidden it in a church basement, where audience and musicians are within touching distance of each other. The acoustics are great.

The Roadhouse serves real coffee and tea — it’s a coffeehouse, not a bar, after all. Hot and cold snacks and desserts are included in the admission.

There’s art, too, because art and music go together. You can sip your coffee while perusing original works available for purchase at the Roadhouse Fine Arts Gallery. Works change with each opening.

Ask around. You might be surprised to find who knows about the Roadhouse. But you didn’t hear it from us…

As a fun, creative, community outreach mission of the church, show proceeds always benefit local NJ charities. Admission includes the show, snacks, beverages and desserts, 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.
