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.

The Cove Inn hosts one of the most original and memorable Live Music Experiences you’ll have!

Call The Cove 1.888.COVE.INN to make reservations and confirm dates. SPENCER EVANS was born in Picton, grew up around the Quinte area, and graduated from B.C.I. Spencer plays piano, clarinet, accordion, sings, dances, prances and has been a professional musician for the past 15 years. He has played Bermuda to Bosnia, New Orleans to the North Pole, and has recorded and toured with The Cowboy Junkies, Sarah Harmer and Pat Temple, and has performed with Jeff Healey, Dan Aykroyd, Willie P. Bennett, Jack Mahieu, Alex Pangman, Maria Muldaur, and Toronto’s Swing Gang, among countless others. Spencer has appeared on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno, CBC Radio’s The Vinyl Café with Stuart McLean, MUCHmusic and CMT. A resident of Kingston for several years, Spencer keeps busy playing with numerous local bands such as Bloom, Pico de Gallo, Ghetto Xpress, The River Cats and various jazzy combos. SEAMUS COWAN plays the low bass and sings the high notes…Kind of strange but it works. Has played all kinds of music in his career so he fits right in. ANDY LOVE has a solid synergy with the boys. His drumming is some of the best around and his ferocity is difficult to tame, behind the kit that is. He has known and played with Spencer for the better part of 3 decades! He sings and loves a good steak too! Ask him about his alter ego TREE BOT! Together, the trio are a powerful combination. Enjoy them weekly in the summer months! JAZZ NIGHT will continue EVERY THURSDAY from May.18-Jun.22 + Sept.7-Oct.5 8-10pm, Jun.29 to Aug.31 9-11pm. $5 and Reservations recommended!!!
