The rugged exterior sends a clear message. Like some macho men, The Saxon Pub cares nothing about its looks. What matters here is the music. Dare to enter this popular, rustic-looking pub and you will be guaranteed a musical delight. This is where local songwriters, musicians, and music lovers come for a beer and a show because there’s always somebody good — like Bob Schneider — playing. Hot tip: If you like what you’ve just heard, hang around, because the shows are often recorded and sold for a modest price within five minutes of the last song.
