UNION – Nationally known piano and singing sensation Bob Malone will perform at the Salem Roadhouse Café tonight, Oct. 8, at 8 p.m. The door will open at 7:30 p.m. and admission is $15 per person (additional donations will be accepted.) All proceeds benefit Haiti Earthquake Relief.
“Bob had performed for us two years ago,” said Bruce Tangowski, director of the Salem Roadhouse Café. “Now Bob is the regular keyboard player for rock legend John Fogerty, of Creedance Clearwater fame. Bob’s original music is extremely dynamic and energetic. His keyboard playing shakes and grabs you right to your soul.” Malone will be accompanied by a bassist and drummer to round things out.
Opening for Malone will be local performer Chris Preston, who also performs his own creations, accompanying himself on piano, guitar and vocals. Whether he’s accompanying himself on guitar and piano or performing in an ensemble on bass and keyboards, Preston’s sound embraces rock’s power and vitality while casting aside its limitations and pop culture banalities.
On display at the Roadhouse Fine Art Gallery will be the works of local artistic talent Maryanne Ficker.
