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! 1.888.COVE.INN

Blues on the Rideau with MONKEYJUNK (Ottawa)
December 13, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 11:00 pm$70
What can you say about this amazing Blues/Funk/Roots/Rock band? – Steve Marriner on vocals, baritone base, keyboards and harp, Tony D on guitar and Matt Sobb on drums. Since they blasted on to the scene in 2008 they’ve released 5 hit albums of mostly original music, won 2 Junos, 21 Maple Blues Awards, 2 Canadian Independent Music Awards and an American Blues Music Award. They’ve toured relentlessly to just about every corner of Canada appearing at major Blues festivals and clubs as well as internationally to a dozen different countries. Wherever they go they make new fans known as Monkey Junkies. Luminaries like Dan Aykroyd (Elwood Blues), David Wilcox, Holger Petersen, William Shatner, Ritchie Hayward of Little Feat, actor Bruce Greenwood and many more count themselves as major MonkeyJunk admirers. Their sound is unique – to quote Tony D – “we respect the traditions of Roots music and give it a modern approach”. Rock.com calls MonkeyJunk “way more than just a Blues band. They’ve brought the disparate elements of their sound together to create a truly modern sonic tapestry”.
We’ve been lucky enough to have MonkeyJunk play Blues On The Rideau twice previously and they’ve performed separately at The Cove a number of times as well – selling out all of their shows. If you’re looking for a date and a place to hold your Christmas Party that offers great food and drink and dancin’ Blues Rock as good as it gets then you couldn’t pick better than December 13th at The Cove Inn with MonkeyJunk!
