Dinner And A Suit is an American rock band based in Neshville Tennessee, formed in 2008. The band is composed of cousins Jonathan Capeci (vocals/guitar), Joey Beretta (guitar/vocals), long time friend Anthony Genca (bass), and Drew Scheuer (drums). The band’s second full-length album Since Our Departure was released in 2012.

Dinner And A Suit was formed in Moorestown, New Jersey, when cousins Jonathan Capeci and Joey Beretta began writing music together. Along with recruiting their long time friend Anthony Genca to play bass, the band built a full line-up playing with various drummers in their first year. In 2008, their first album Light And Lungs was released.

The band’s name is a tribute to Joey and Jonathan’s great-grandmother. As Jonathan tells it:
Joey and I are cousins and our great-grandmother was a seamstress who made and repaired clothes during the early part of the 20th century. When the factory that employed her would discard suits, she would take them home and spend her free time mending them. It was the Great Depression and times were tough for everyone.

Wanting to make a difference in her own way, she made it a common practice to invite people who were down on their luck over to the house, cook for them and just spend time with them. When they left, she would give them one of the suits she was finished working on. Our family would tell us that they left her home with “dinner and a suit” – and hence the name.

In 2009, Dinner And A Suit was selected as a finalist for the Ernie Ball Battle Of The Bands following a string of dates on the Vans Warped Tour That same year, they released the follow-up EP Safe To Say.

In 2010, Jonathan, Joey and Anthony moved to Nashville and began working on a new full-length album. Pre-production took place at First Street Studios in Cleveland, TN with producer Tyler Orr. The band then traveled to Glow In The Dark studios in Atlanta, GA to track the album with producer Matt Goldman.

In August 2011, Dinner And A Suit announced that their new album would be titled Since Our Departure. That fall, the band joined Farewell Fighter and Assemble The Skyline for the East Coast Beast Coast Tour from October 14 – November 19, 2011.
