"Music’s ‘Man of Steel’ plays Payomet" - Robert Randolph & the Family Band


by Joe Burns - August, 30, 2019

On a tree-shaded side street, in Orange, N.J., stands a small brick building, home to the House of God Church. It was there that Robert Randolph learned the Gospel and the steel guitar.

Randolph and his Family Band, who perform at the Payomet Performing Arts Center on Saturday, Sept. 7, honed their skills in church and that gospel sound permeates their music today, as evidenced in the band’s performance and in its recently released CD, “Brighter Days.”

Guitar PIcks and Drumsticks

We just found these around the tent, left over from our BIG weekend that started out with a heartpounding show by Blue Öyster Cult and finished with the return of The Zombies...really.
