Carnegie’s ‘Suits That Rock’ rollin’ on the river for 2021

Saturday, Oct. 9, 7:30 p.m.
Covington Plaza Outdoor Amphitheater

The Carnegie is inviting the public to “Get Back” to enjoying the musical extravaganza that is “Suits That Rock.”

A local music tradition now entering its 14th year, the event showcases local executives leaving the boardroom in favor of the stage. The concert will feature a mix of “guest suits” and returning favorites, all of whom will take the stage with the same purpose in mind: raising funds to support The Carnegie’s arts education programming. To date, Suits has raised more than $1.1M for arts education at more than 60 schools.

“As we all know, nearly every industry suffered adverse effects because of the pandemic, the arts and education arguably being one hit hardest,” said John Domaschko, Suits co-founder and executive committee member. “With this one-night, outdoor concert, we can continue doing the things we do best: providing a great night of music, song and community for a greater good.”

Musically, this year’s concert will feature a mix of classic and contemporary rock tunes sure to appeal to audiences of all ages.

  • Dan Cahill, managing principal and CEO, HSD Metrics
  • Chrissy Dunn Dutton, litigation partner, Buechner, Haffer, Meyers & Koeing Co., LPA
