Rhythm House...R.I.P.

It's a sad time for all of you music lovers out there...The Rhythm House in
Bridgeville is closing at the end of this month. I've seen hundreds of bands there. Everything from current rock to country to being a regular on Sunday evenings for the Pittsburgh Jazz Society. For the past nine years this has been a great place to grab a meal (well, not always great) but it sure was a good bar! Daryl tells me that it will soon be a GetGo gas station ) :

It seems that he has no plans to reopen anywhere else at this time.

Here is Daryl's posting from their website:

Friends, All good things must end, and the end for a dream that started nine years ago will hold its last party on February 27, 2010. The Rhythm House will be torn down and a Get Go will stand in its place. Don't be sad; embrace this last month, spread the word, and celebrate an era with me as we close with the last big party on Saturday, February 27 with Donnie Iris, Joe Grushecky, B.E. Taylor, Scott Blasey, Bill Deasy, and Velveeta. The nightlife landscape will have a drastic void, leaving behind only the great memories. The first dates, the first kisses, the engagements, the bachelor parties, the weddings, a couple of Super Bowls and a Stanley Cup, great live music, and the friends we have met along the way. I am proud of what we have done here and we will be going out in style, things have been very busy here for the last few months and I expect it to be crazy busy as we come to silence the music. It has been an honor to be your host for the last nine years and proud to say we put on some of the greatest parties any where in the world. I have to thank the support of Froggy Radio, WDUQ, and WDVE for making us a landmark. I could never thank Frank Bell, Jimmy Krenn, Sean McDowell, and Tony Mowod enough. The great shows of Darius Rucker, Billy Currington, Josh Turner, Jason Michael Carroll, Blake Shelton, Quiet Riot, Warrant, Rod Piazza, the late night parties, the quiet nights with friends. The celebrity appearances: Lou Gossett Jr., Jason Gedrick, and Matthew McConaughey. The many sports legends to tip one back here. The Nashville Star Auditions, The DVE Morning show, and Jenna from Survivor hanging in the office because no one could know she won. Countless memories that we all will take with us. I hope you all agree that there is no other place in the world like The Rhythm House Cafe. I hope to see you here before we go. I will keep everyone posted of the special events we have planned for February. Let's get this party started until February 27, officially, "The Day the Music Died". Thanks for the Memories! Daryl Price The Rhythm House Cafe

BYE BYE Rhythm House, you won't be missed. What a perfect location for a giant Get-Go gas station. The residents of South Fayette Township will be throwing their own party on Feb. 27 to celebrate the end of a 9 year nuisance. Thank you to the South Fayette Township Board of Commissioners.

Just what South Fayette needs. A fourth gas station in that area. All they need to do now is reopen that Texaco back by Star City and throw a Valero in the Gillece lot and everything will be perfect.

I for one will miss the Rhythm House Jack. I bet King's will too.
