Friday, October 18th, 2013 – SPB Presents: Dinner And A Suit
7PM at the UC Houston Room
In a music world where genre lines are increasingly blurred, DINNER AND A SUIT has emerged with a sonic meld that resonates with familiarity and captivates with distinction. Since their formation in 2009, Dinner And A Suit quickly captured attention with a captivating blend of ethereal rock and distinguished pop—leading to critical acclaim, a swelling dedication of global fans, and coveted live dates that have circled the band throughout the US. The spiraling success fueled Dinner And A Suit to transplant to Nashville in late 2010, where they began work on what would become Since Our Departure—their brand new full-length album.
