Though they are now based in Nashville, Dinner and A Suit have ties to South Jersey, forming in Moorestown. The song in the above video, “Too Late,” appears on the band’s debut full-length album Since Our Departure and has been generating a fair amount of buzz online of late.
As for the band’s name, well it’s a really cool story. The great-grandmother of two of the band members (cousins) was a seamstress during the Great Depression who would take home discarded suits from the factory where she worked, mend them and give them to men down on their luck after inviting them over for dinner.
Pretty cool, huh?
