Welcome to the official website of the New York Roots Music Association!
The New York Roots Music Association & Saturday Night Social Club was created by a group of like-minded Long Island, NY musicians who longed for a different way to collaborate and present their music. Our goal is to offer our friends and fans an alternative to the late night bar scene and a chance to reconnect to live music. We’ll be paying tribute to the artists that have been major influences in our lives – from all genres. It is from these roots that we have grown – and are still growing.

Support live music!
At the heart of everything we do is our love for live music. Every night, in every town across this great country of ours you can find someone playing music whether it’s at the local library, in a neighborhood bar or theater or under a tree in the park.
