Rodair Roadhouse

Southeast Texas singer-songwriter Robert Frith will play from 8-11 p.m. on Saturday, Aug. 5, at the Rodair Roadhouse located at 6701 Jade Ave in Port Arthur. Frith has played at several big musical festivals in the area including the Gulf Coast Jam as well as Janis Joplin Memorial Concert. The diversity of Frith’s original music earned him airplay on radio stations with music formats of pop, rock, classic rock and country. In 2007, he was chosen out of 30,000 contestants as a Regional Finalist for the reality music show Nashville Star on USA Network.

Last summer, the new 5,000-square-foot Rodair Roadhouse opened at 6701 Jade Ave.

For decades, there was a Cajun hangout in Port Acres that was a great retreat for Southeast Texans who enjoyed good music, dancing and spirits after a long workweek. After establishing itself as a staple in the Cajun community for 39 years, the fun ended when it closed in 2004, and Hurricane Rita finished off the famous Rodair Club.

Last summer, the Rodair Roadhouse, which named its restaurant and bar in tribute to Joe Thibodeaux’s famous club, revived his legend and added its own special touch — a great menu of Cajun dishes.
