Dinner and a Suit is band that was formed out of New Jersey by Jonathan Capeci, Joey Beretta, and Anthony Genca in 2009. Since forming the band, Dinner and a Suit has easily captured fans with their pop/rock sound. They have gained enough attention to allow live dates that have included the Vans Warped Tour, MTV2’s Projekt Revolution, and tours all throughout the East Coast and Midwest.

After gaining fans on these tours, Dinner and a Suit packed up and moved to Nashville, Tennessee in late 2010. While there, they worked on their full-length album titled Since Our Departure with themes like forgiveness and hope, love and loss, and discovering a place in the world.

I have had the privilege to see Dinner and a Suit live a couple times. It is quite obvious their stage presence is one of a kind and something you need to see in person.

Dinner and a Suit have a few tour dates out currently for August 2012 with more to be announced. I think with time, Dinner and a Suit will definitely become a band to be heard. They easily appeal to all ages with their type of sound, which will for sure bring in many new ears for future music. Dinner and a Suit is a band you want to keep your eye on.
