  • le petit café 28 Bellevue Avenue Newport, RI, 02840 United States (map)

with Seth Kessel & his band

$20 plus tax (10% off wine and beer bought at NWC!)

We are trying to make a fun Italian ritual part of our routine here in Newport: Aperitivo is a happy hour of sorts with music and food and spritz.  We will provide a sample of an Italian Aperol Spritz, an ample buffet of antipasto, and great live music to groove to before heading out for your evening!

Seth Kessel and the Two Cent Band play an innovative repertoire that features a modern-day interpretation of Prohibition-era swing and 1950s rock ‘n’ roll. The Brooklyn-based five-piece is comprised of highly skilled musicians who perform extensively throughout the United States and abroad.  Frontman Seth Kessel layers his virtuosic guitar-playing and rich-toned, multi-octave voice with vibrant horns (Gabriel Yonkler on saxophone and Jackson Hardaker on trombone) and a dynamic rhythm section (Nick Wight on drums and percussion and Larry Cook on upright bass). Their live performances include energetic rock shows that inspire audiences to dance, and jazz gigs at speakeasies with old-world charm. Throughout these diverse styles and venues, the band performs variations of their witty and playful original songs.

*tax will be added to your cost, gratuity is at your discretion at the time of the event
