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

JAY SMITH (Formerly “Smitty Kingston”, Country/Rock, Kingston)

August 21 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Please Generously Tip Our Musicians

Jay, formerly known as “Smitty Kingston”, is a solo artist from Kingston, Ontario! He has played thousands of shows over a 25 year span and has shared the stage with great musicians like The Tragically Hip, Tom Cochrane, Blue Rodeo, Kim Mitchell, David Wilcox, Dan Aykroyd and more. He has played hundreds of shows over the past 20 years with his bands 49 Stares, Crooked Rain, The Furleys and The Tonekats. He hosted a long 22 year solo house gig on Sunday nights at The Brass Pub in Kingston. He now shares his time between Nashville and Canada to write, record and perform. He has released 4 solo records and is currently working on a new album with famed Toronto producer Derek Downham which features Kelly Prescott on vocals! Bringing country back, one tune at a time…

Last year, Smitty was affected by the tragedy of the Humboldt Broncos not only as someone who is passionate about hockey but as a father and a Canadian. As a way of trying to deal with the heartache, he took to his guitar to pen an emotional expression as his way of letting go some of the heartbreak…the result of that is his song “Stick Out By The Door”. It went viral in Canada and he performed it at the televised funeral.
