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.

Music Menu

Music Menu

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.
