What’s New for January 2016

In 2016 we’ve changed things up a little already, as we’ve done each of the past three years we’ve been in business. What’s changed?

Colored Lights at the Roadhouse

We’ve already:

  • Installed a neat set of colored lights for the stage. It really makes the ambiance exciting to have the lighting. A big thank you to Lynn Hoffman on this!

We’re going to start:

  • Offering more lunch special choices each day of the week. Stay tuned for the date. You’ll like that.
  • Having more well-known regional bands play on weekend nights, and if there are more covers, it’s only to cover their higher fees.

We’re continuing to host:

  • First Monday Nights – NC Revelers Big Band Orchestra
  • 2nd Monday Nights – Mr. Wonderful’s Celebration of Dean Martin’s Music

We’ve stopped hosting:

  • Wednesday Night open mic and karaoke, effective January 1, 2016, after 3 full years of almost every Wednesday night!
  • Poker – Wednesdays and Saturday Poker Games, effective January 2016.
  • Our regular Monday, Tuesday and Thursday night drink special, though we’ll still have having great drink specials, just not the same ones week after week.
  • Singer Songwriter Gathering – after meeting some great songwriters who we have invited back.
  • The Tokyo Rosenthal Program – after a really great few seasons! Check out Tokyo Rosenthal on YouTube and Facebook.

Life is constantly changing, and we have to keep changing it up to keep you interested.

Talk with us about what you’d like to see at The Roadhouse. You never know what might come of it!

Here’s to 2016. May it be good for all of us!

Sunday Brunch at The Roadhouse

Brunch Buffet Every Sunday

Since October, 2015 the Pittsboro Roadhouse has been open EVERY SUNDAY for Brunch (unless it’s a holiday like Christmas or New Year’s Day).

We’re open for Pittsboro First Sunday, the day when  historic downtown Pittsboro opens up its doors and fills the sidewalks with crafts and specials for visitors. And we’re open every other Sunday!

We’re currently serving a brunch buffet. Menu changes periodically.

The hours are 10:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m (seating by 2:30pm).

Sunday Brunch Menu

We are open for brunch every Sunday, including Mother’s Day and Easter Sunday, and in 2016 Valentine’s Day, which falls on a Sunday too.

Our Lounge

In addition to sitting for Brunch, there is a comfortable lounge, some call the “Flat Tire Lounge” because some of the tables are made from tires with a plexiglass surface. Guests can rest their feet and order something cool or something hot to eat or drink or both before heading out again. 

With the spirit of a street market, and a wide variety of wares for sale, 1st Sunday Pittsboro is an event. If you haven’t been, you should make a half day of it.

Town of Pittsboro

Have you seen the colored map of Downtown Pittsboro created by the Pittsboro Business Association? You may want to print it out if it’s your first visit to the quaint and vibrant downtown center. A new one has been in the works in the early Spring 2015, see if it’s ready yet.

Notes: Sunday March 3, 2013, was the first Brunch offered at the Pittsboro Roadhouse on Pittsboro First Sundays only until October 2015. In October 2015, Sunday Brunch was offered every Sunday with a Brunch menu. Since summer 2016, we offer a brunch buffet.

The Sunday Band Series

The Sunday Band Series began in historic downtown Pittsboro in April 2014 with award-winning bands performing on the Pittsboro Roadhouse stage at 39 West Street, Pittsboro, North Carolina. After a solid run of monthly band events at the Pittsboro Roadhouse on Sunday mid afternoons, the Sunday Band Series drew to a close, with the decision to bring these wonderful bands in on Friday nights! Look for the bands with cover charges, some of those are bands we first got to know through the Sunday Band Series.

Bigger Bands on Occasional Friday Nights

Look for these and more:

  • Shoot to Thrill
  • Big Time
  • The Holiday Band
  • Hip Pocket
  • Jim Quick & Coastline
  • Carolina Soul
  • Liquid Pleasure

(Updated December 22, 2015)

Wilson Entertainment Services

John Wilson of Wilson Entertainment Services, is also a vocalist, guitarist and songwriter for Chatham County’s award-nominated BigTime Party Band. Wilson is organizing the Sunday Band Series in partnership with Greg Lewis of the Pittsboro Roadhouse. “When I met Greg Lewis and we started talking,” said Wilson, “we quickly realized we had a common vision for Pittsboro as a music hub and we could partner to help it grow.”

The Pittsboro Roadhouse & General Store

The bands will perform at the Pittsboro Roadhouse, one of the area’s largest restaurant and music venues, in the rear where the stage, dance floor, and bar are located. http://www.pittsbororoadhouse.com There is also a lounge from which one can see the stage and hear the music. Guests on the patio can also hear the bands. “39 West Street used to be a car dealership,” said Lewis. “There used to be a garage where the lounge is now. We installed a screened wall (and door), so when the weather is good, we raise the garage door, and fresh air and music move freely through the screened wall.”

“No other place within 30 miles of here has the caliber of food, environment and entertainment that the Pittsboro Roadhouse has – it’s entirely unique,” says Wilson.

Hoffman Guitars and Sound

The sound system was upgraded when the Pittsboro Roadhouse opened, but still needed work due to the large size and features of the back hall. Wilson recommended a talented sound expert, Lynn Hoffman, who makes his own sound equipment, custom electric guitars and amplifiers at Hoffman Guitars and Sound.

Within 10 days Hoffman performed acoustic analytics then designed, constructed, installed and tested a major upgrade. “I was able to put together a sound system specifically designed for the acoustics of this room,” said Hoffman. “We have a very good representation of the entire frequency spectrum, and it’s well equalized. Just about everyone I’ve talked to – performers and guests have loved the difference.”


 A Sampling of Sunday Band Series Concerts

The Invaders won the 2011 and 2012 Best Local Band in the Winston Salem Readers Choice Awards. The Invaders play Rock & Roll, Classic Rock, Southern Rock, Beach, Blues, Boogies, Soul and some Country. Len Wilson is on guitar and vocals; Jim Fulp on bass and vocals; and Bryant Bowles on drums and vocals. Though the musicians have many years of experience, they began playing as The Invaders in June 2010.

Music in Pittsboro

“The shared vision that Greg and I have for Pittsboro,” Wilson said, “and I know others see it too, is for Pittsboro’s already strong music offerings to continue to grow and develop in a way that Pittsboro becomes known as an exciting music hub. We want to be attracting people from all over the Triangle and Triad and beyond. Pittsboro and Chatham County are already a draw for art and antiques, and of course Shakori Hills Grassroots Festival of Music and Dance in April and October.”

“If people come to The Invaders, and SHE BOP, The Castaways and The Holiday Band, and they have a good time, and this grows, we’ll be able to keep doing the Sunday Band Series and bring even bigger bands to town,” Wilson said.

Greg Lewis, owner of the Pittsboro Roadhouse added, “This opportunity to do a Sunday Band Series is happening at the right time. Spring is coming. Our sound system is at a whole new level of quality. The Pittsboro music scene is growing and attracting attention, and we’re ready to start utilizing our space more; the back part of our restaurant is essentially a music and dance hall. We want to be known as the place to come for really good food, really good music and a really good time!”
