“Where Words Fail Music Speaks” is what you see at the very top of the show calendar plastered all around Dodge Street Bar & Grill. Located at 7 Dodge St in historic Salem, Dodge has been a live music Mecca on the North Shore of Massachusetts going on 19 years. Originally opened in August of 1991 by Bob Berzofsky, Dodge flourished as a place for good food and even better music. After a brief second ownership, Dodge Streets old cook in the “Bob” years; Frank Presutti Jr. took ownership, and will be celebrating his 6th anniversary this May.
Dodge Street pumps out live music 7 nights a week, beginning at 9:30pm. The music covers just about every genre, kicking off the week with an open mic on Mondays, Fats Hammond’s organ jazz residency on Tuesdays, and a mix of everything else in between. Dodge St offers a full kitchen, and starts serving food at 5pm-10pm, and fried food from 10p-12p. The drink of choice at Dodge is the Gansett Tall Boy, coming in at $3.00 a pop, which makes for a fun night of tasty lager and great music 7 nights a week. If you really want to know what the bar is all about, be sure to check Franks own band, Regressing the Apes who tend to play once a month.
Frank personally invites you to come down this Saturday, as Polluted Dreams will be teaming up with The Brigands, The Vogon Poets, and Nadz, for a night of rock n roll with plenty of Gansett and “midget strippers” – Just check out the above video for a quick word from Frank himself!
