Belmar native, Pat Roddy, has been playing music along the Jersey Shore for over two decades. He formed The Pat Roddy Band in the late nineties and has put out four CDs of original music. The band’s talented cast of musicians exudes a Jersey Shore soul vibe and has the musical versatility that appeals to a wide fan base. Whether he’s covering Springsteen, Southside Johnny, or Tom Petty at bars along the shore, performing at weddings, or playing for charity, Roddy and his band have always rocked the house.
Despite his musical accomplishments, Roddy is most proud of his charitable work and the support of his fans. When the pandemic hit and forced everyone into lockdown mode, Roddy sprang into action. He live-streamed a weekly acoustic show from home which, thanks to his fans, raised over $100,000 for various charities in Monmouth and Ocean County.
