ENTERTAINMENT & SPECIAL EVENTS
If you’re looking for some music to spice up your time in Westport, The Cove is the place for you to set yourself down. We bring in the best we can find and keep a healthy mix on rotation. From Blues to Jazz, Rock to Folk, Country to Bluegrass, Soul to Funk, we love it all. In the warmer months, larger performances and full band shows take place on our Lounge stage while solos, duos and small groups play to the patio crowds. When it gets cooler, all shows happen in the Lounge.
Always best to call ahead for reservations so you have a seat too! 613.273.3636

Blues on the Rideau: RIA REECE BAND
March 22, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 11:00 pm$65
BLUES ON THE RIDEAU @ THE COVE INN
2018/19 SEASON – our 14th year!
MONTHLY DINNER & SHOW FUNDRAISERS IN SUPPORT OF LOCAL CHARITIES FEATURING SOME OF CANADA’S BEST BLUES BAND!
RIA REECE BAND
Ria is another great Montreal chanteuse. She has a beautiful, powerful, soulful voice and sings Blues, Rock, Soul & R&B with a depth and feeling that belies her young age evoking memories of Aretha Franklin, Etta James & Koko Taylor. Backed by her guitarist/husband Andre Chevarie Ria and the band hit the scene in 2013 with the release of their debut album “Out All Night”. It got airplay around the world and positive reviews from as far away as Kenya, Los Angeles, Atlanta and London. They were nominated for 4 Quebec Lys Blues Awards that year and were finalists in the Toronto Blues Society’s Talent Search. After seeing her perform at the Canadian Blues Summit in Toronto in 2015 I was so impressed I booked her immediately to play BOTR @ The Cove and as expected she blew the house away. Anyone who was there that night knows why they want to be back to see her again. For those of you who haven’t experienced her yet – come and find out what all the talk is about. Ria and the band have a new album coming out shortly and will no doubt be playing lots from it at this show.
