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

The Blue Monday Band

Blue Monday, was a hard-driving blues quintet who had long-term appointments at The Wellington (now the Iron Duke), The Shot and, lastly, The Toucan. The band was founded by saxophonist Rick Flanagan, and fronted by Grant “Honeyboy” Heckman. Bass player Zak Colbert, drummer/vocalist Mike Sakell and keyboardist Ken Hall soundly round out the band.

Rick Flanagan – Saxophone, Vocals

He has also performed with the Fabulous Jaguars, Swing Cats, Soul Survivors and Up Jumped Da Blues. After five years in Memphis, playing with some of the best in the business, he returned to Kingston and formed The Big Phat Horn Band, a 10-piece group that recently celebrated their 6th Anniversary performing at the RCHA Club. A Blue Monday founder.
