Madame Pat Tandy to perform at Northern New Jersey’s Most Intimate Coffeehouse
The Salem Roadhouse Café proudly presents Madame Pat Tandy, performing on Saturday, July 13, 2019.
Pat Tandy has been singing professionally since the late 70’s, which includes a long stint with the popular R&B recording group “The Pretenders”, who had several minor hits on Carnival Records. Pat has performed in off-Broadway musicals, including “Good Time Blues” and “Billie”, and has portrayed Queen Evilleen in the musical “Wiz” at NJPAC in Newark, NJ.
Madame Pat has toured abroad performing in Japan, Italy, Switzerland, and Russia. Additionally, Pat performed aboard several cruise ships including Royal Caribbean, Norwegian and Carnival for eleven years, cruising the sunny islands of the Southern Caribbean.
Having performed previously at the Roadhouse Café, Mme. Pat brings seasoned musicians Radam Schwartz, (Keys); Gordon Lane (Drums); and Anthony Ware (tenor sax) to back up her amazing vocals. For this performance, Pat plans to perform a variety of music from Jazz standards, Blues (featuring some originals from her latest CD “Back It Up – Action Speaks Louder Than Words”), and some old familiar R&B favorites with new arrangements.
This show will feature original artwork by The Roadhouse’ summer resident artist Andrew Washington, with his works on display for all to enjoy and experience at the Roadhouse Gallery of Fine Art.
All ages are welcome. It’s a wholesome show, so bring the entire family!
Doors open at 7:30 p.m. The show starts at 8:00 p.m. Admission is $20.

About Salem Roadhouse Café
Dedication best defines the Salem Roadhouse Café: dedication to excellent music and dedication to the community. In its eleventh year, The 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 solid 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 mainstream 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 eleven years well over 100 different entertainers have appeared. Local fine artists also display their works. The musicians who play the Roadhouse often ask to return as soon as possible. The Roadhouse has given them a place with a beautiful stage, good acoustics, a live, attentive audience, and a sound system that is first class.
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, Groundwork Elizabeth, Union Twp. Police “Santa In Blue” toy campaign and others. Thousands of dollars have been raised for these deserving charities.
Now nearly into its twelfth year of operation, the Salem Roadhouse Café features many of the performers who have graced the stage in the past, as well as talent that is new to the Café stage. The current season will benefit Family Promise.
Admission includes the show, art displays, snacks, beverages and desserts.
