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

  • Hip Pocket

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. 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.

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!”

You can be part of the audience for a new Americana Radio Show recording live at the Pittsboro Roadhouse. The audio recording will be broadcast on radio stations on a delayed basis. Video will also be recorded and posted on Tokyo Rosenthal’s YouTube channel.

Because we’re recording LIVE for a syndicated radio show, premiering on WCHL starting June 14, 2014, and after that on other radio stations, we have the following suggestions for The Tokyo Rosenthal Program audience.

  • Support the Roadhouse and come early to have dinner, appetizers, drinks and desserts. Come early before 7:30 to order and start.
  • Plan to order your drinks before the show starts, by 7:45.
  • There are short breaks in the recording ever ten or more minutes.
  • Please plan on sitting quietly, except for applause and appropriate laughter during the close-to-an-hour recording.
  • If you would like to bring children, please only bring them if you know they will be comfortable sitting quietly.
  • If you would like to come with a group of friends, we welcome that, but we will ask for no talking during the show.

We love live music. We love showcasing local talent. We love exciting our guests with great music and a lot of fun. At the Pittsboro Roadhouse we have live music five to six days a week.

We’re always reaching out to new bands and solo players, as well as to bands that you’ve shown you love by coming out to listen and dine and dance.

Know a great band that will draw a crowd? Email us at

With so much music, we constantly have to update our Music Menu. You’ll see the Music to go Menu’s on the tables, and those are for you – to read, and to take home to remember what you want to return to hear!

Every Wednesday is live Karaoke (at least the singing is live!) or Open Mic with Bradley Junell, Raleigh Event DJ.

Tuesdays and First Sundays

Tuesday Nights and Pittsboro First Sundays at noon we have solo or duos / trios playing acoustic music for the front dining area. Nothing like a little music to make a dinner special. It’s not Italian singers and accordions or violins, and it’s not the Mexican trios going table to table with different sizes of guitars, it’s American musicians in the blues or folk or rock or country tradition playing mostly American music.


Thursday nights we choose smaller bands or bands that are primarily acoustic, for a relaxing dinner experience.

Fridays and Saturdays

Friday and Saturday nights we like to bring in bigger bands, with a bigger sound, so we all feel the excitement. Many of our bands play danceable music.
