Dinner and a Suit

Dinner and a Suit album cover

AbsolutePunk review “Dinner And A Suit is a band whose explosive and energetic stage performance coupled with their solid lyrical and melodic hooks give them their signature sound. This separates them from other bands within the alternative pop/rock genre. It’s a fresh and exciting sound with unique structure and brilliance. Emerging from the Philly/South Jersey area, the band finds inspiration from artists such as This Day & Age, Sleeping at Last, Mark Kozeleck, and Sigur Ros.” AbsolutePunk

Dinner and a Suit’s unusual name comes from the band’s family legacy of taking care of people in need, and we understand that the band is continuing that legacy by committing 10% of their first CD’s profits to charity. Although the band is out of Nashville, one of its members is a Kings alumnus. Three guesses who the band member on the left is!

Enjoy this preview of Dinner and A Suit’s CD Since Our Departure. You can purchase a copy of the full CD at iTunes.
