The Salem Roadhouse Cafe proudly presents the Michaela McClain Band performing on Saturday, February 10, 2018. The Salem Roadhouse Cafe is located at: 829 Salem Road, Union.
Michaela McClain is a singer/songwriter born and raised in Bernardsville. Her “folky-soul” sound is reminiscent of Carol King, Norah Jones, and Alicia Keys, and “her warm groove creates an atmosphere of love that’s irresistible.” Her musical influences range from Carlos Jobim, Ella Fitzgerald, Indigo Girls, to India Arie. Bandmates are: Meredith Foreman, drums; Brad Schwartzseid, bass; and Raul Abbad, guitar.
At her 2016 and 2017 performances at the Roadhouse, Michaela demonstrated her solid songwriting and performing capabilities, accompanied by an extremely talented band.
An original art exhibit by local artist Kerrie Wandlass will be on display at the Roadhouse Gallery of Fine Arts.
All ages are welcome. It’s a wholesome show, so bring the entire family!
Doors open 7:30 p.m. The show starts at 8 p.m. Admission is $20/$15 for students with ID.

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.
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.
