The Salem Roadhouse Cafe is will once again present its "Cool Jazz For Hot Summer Nights" music series. Nature has provided the “Hot”, and done so amply. We’ll provide the “Cool", twofold!
Cool, as in air conditioned. With the Roadhouse being located below grade, plus having excellent air conditioning, it’ll be the best place around on a hot, sticky summer night. Cool, as in music. Enjoy smooth, sophisticated jazz vocals as provided by the Stephen Fuller and his Quartet. This event will take place this evening at 8 p.m.
Stephen Fuller's deep rich voice and soulful renditions have long made him a favorite with sophisticated audiences around the world; performing in Eilat, Israel; Turks and Caicos; Negril; Jamaica; San Jose, Costa Rica; and St. Croix, Virgin Islands. In addition to his overseas engagements, Fuller has also performed in renowned New York City and New Jersey venues such as: the Metropolitan Room, Pat's in Chelsea, The Hotel Tutor, Trumpets Jazz Club and Restaurant, and many others. In addition, he has sung the National Anthem for the Kansas City Kings NBA team (now Sacramento Kings) at Kemper Arena, and opened for both Stevie Wonder and Bill Withers while attending Colgate University.
Fuller is best known for his smooth virtuosity, which spans the breadth of jazz standards, blues, latin, swing, Bossa Nova and contemporary classics. As a lead vocalist, he has worked with a number of jazz bands and singing groups including: The Ted Klum Jazz Trio, Platinum II featuring Vince Seneri, Carrie Jackson's Jazz Vocal Collective and many others. Most recently, he formed FullerSounds. This performance group includes some of the most talented jazz musicians in the NY/NJ area, tailoring the size and sound of musical entertainment to best meet the needs of clients and events.
You wouldn’t think that a coffeehouse tucked away in a church basement would become the local hotbed of musical talent, but that’s just what has happened with the SALEM ROADHOUSE CAFÉ over the past five years. Musicians simply love the place, and when musicians love a place they play their hearts out for the audience.
It’s a coffeehouse; not a bar. The Roadhouse serves coffee and tea, and a selection of hot and cold snacks and desserts all included in the admission. The audience and the performers are within touching distance of each other — it’s a very intimate musical experience, and it brings out the best in the performers. The sound system and professional stage lighting ensure an enjoyable experience.
The Salem Roadhouse Cafe is located at 829 Salem Road, Union. Admission is $15 general, $10 students. For more information, visit www.roadhousecafe.org, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 908-687-1028. All are welcome.
