One of Dayton’s favorite places to let loose is Soft Rock Cafe in Centerville. It is a dedicated Karaoke bar, where up to 4 nights a week, you can sing your heart out.
For over 15 years the duo karaoke hosts of Curt Delk and Mark Hall, have been jazzing up audiences with fun shows, one liners, back up vocals, and birthday shots. The formula has made these two the most popular and well-known “KJ’s” (karaoke jockeys) in the Miami
Valley. Mark hosts Thursday night shows and occasional Sunday special edition karaoke. Curt hosts the Friday and Saturday crowds and the ruckus that ensues. It is part “the voice” and part comedy club as the singers and the zingers fly. Lots of fun is always had in this laid back atmosphere. It is always a safe and enjoyable environment. Food Adventures crunched the numbers and figure that over the past 15+ years, Curt and Mark have each separately hosted karaoke shows for over 160,000 people.
Now it is your turn to visit the Soft Rock, especially if you have never been. The stage is set, the fog machine and light show begins … you’re on baby ! Live out your “American Idol” fantasies, or just goof off with friends, they have every song you could ever think of and every drink you could ever drink of …

This wouldn’t be a Food Adventures article if we didn’t mention the MUST EATS …
Here we go …
MUST EATS at SOFT ROCK CAFE:
Its all about the pizza at Soft Rock… Thin crust, semi crispy and always piping hot. Whether a cheese pizza or 5 toppings it will always please the masses.
Always improving recipe with different sauces. Garlic Parmesan is the ticket.
A Must “drink” if you will. Served in a shot glass it is a mild, yet nice shot.
Honorable Mention Drinks: Try a SCOOBY SNACK or NICOLE’S KNOCKOUT PUNCH.
OCTOBER IS A BIG MONTH AT SOFT ROCK:
2 Annual events that have received a lot of attention over the years are again gearing up.
FRIDAY OCT 6th –
The 9th ANNUAL SOFT ROCK CONCERT FUNDRAISER TO CURE BREAST CANCER:
Always held in October, this fundraiser benefits the Susan G Komen fund. This year the $5 donation at the door gets you an evening with “The Fabulous Debonte Brothers.” They play 80’s music, classic rock and some hair band tunes as well. This night will feature raffle prizes and 50/50 giveaways as well as silent auction items. Food Adventures loves these charity events.
SATURDAY OCT. 28th
SOFT ROCK’S ANNUAL COSTUME HALLOWEEN PARTY:
Karaoke and costumes are the features of the night. This is one of the biggest Halloween bashes in town !
Free Admission and Karaoke make this the best deal in town.
Soft Rock Cafe is a unique, locally owned spot that is a blast. They have a great niche business, and you hear great singers all the way to singers who aren’t great but having fun. All in all it is a good time and a great way to blow off some steam.
Another great event is every summer an event to prevent Multiple Sclerosis. The Roger Gordon Memorial Golf Tournament is held every summer. With a steak dinner at Soft Rock Cafe afterward, it makes for one of the best bang for your buck golf outings.
