Led by founder/frontman, guitarist and lead vocalist, the handsome and charismatic Michael Shapiro, his amazing three man band includes Chris Nichols on bass, and Jack E. Roth on drums, all excellent musicians. What makes them unlike any other cover band is the way they take classic songs by Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Sammy Davis Jr., Elvis, Sonny & Cher, Neil Diamond, Wayne Newton and more, and brilliantly transforms them into their very own modern rock versions that are unique and original.

Caves can accommodate multiple guests at one time.While many Salt Room customers seek treatment for health conditions, others simply enjoy the health benefits while relaxing in the cave’s quiet, comfortable chairs and spa-like atmosphere.The Salt Room also hosts crystal bowl and other mindfulness and meditation classes throughout the month inside the salt caves.Guests can bring the salt experience into their own home, with The Salt Room signature unique hand-made retail products made from pure Himalayan salt for purchase, such as salt scrubs, moisturizers, aromatherapy bath salts, salt shot glasses, lamps, blocks and more. The Salt Room also offers custom home salt feature design, from accent walls to fireplaces and headboards.The Salt Room KAKTUSlife is open daily from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.
