Club Cumming On The Coast

Club Cumming on the Coast

Join us as award-winning actor, singer, philanthropist, LGBTQPIA+ advocate and nightclub owner, Alan Cumming brings his East Village cabaret bar, Club Cumming, to the Kennebunkport Inn.

This summer’s series was such a smash hit that we’re rolling out a five-week extension for Club Cumming on the Coast until October 9th. Launching Labor Day weekend, this seasonal outpost extension will feature a rotating roster of talent, personally curated by Cumming and his team, who will perform Friday and Saturday evenings on a replica of the East Village venue’s “postage stamp-sized” stage.  Entertainment will range from theater world stars to piano-bar showtunes, drag performances to jazz acts and more.  In addition to bringing world class entertainers to Maine’s storied summer colony, Club Cumming on the Coast has donated over $16,000 to  The Actors Fund to support the national human service organization’s ongoing effort to support those arts professionals who have been especially impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic.  Since March 18, 2020, The Actors Fund has provided more than $20 million in emergency financial assistance to thousands of individuals across all 50 states and Puerto Rico.

Starting September 10th, shows will occur weekly, Fridays and Saturdays from 6-7:30pm. Reservations made during the performances are $105 per person and include a welcome cocktail and three-course dinner from The Burleigh. A portion of the proceeds going to The Actors Fund. If you would like to make a reservation for Club Cumming on the Coast, please reserve the “Experience” for an evening show between 5-6pm. Please note: in the case of inclement weather, performances will be moved indoors and reservations will be accommodated.

Tables at Club Cumming on the Coast are going fast! Make your reservations via OpenTable today, or email dining@kennebunkportinn.com to be added to the waitlist.

Kate Yeager:
September 17 + 18, 2021

Furthering the lineage of artists like Carol King, Tracey Chapman, & Janis Joplin, Kate Yeager’s lyrics & soul-infused vocals transcend stats, trends & ages. She is the next great female troubadour: energetic, bold, & leading with love.

At the intersection of a smokey NYC jazz club & a summer camp celebration, the Brooklyn-based singer-songwriter channels her superpower for empathy & warmth of spirit to create an uncanny connection with her listeners. Her music ranges from joy to sadness – at times intense & strong, at others, soothing & breathtakingly refreshing.

The Carmine Terracciano Band:
September 24 +25, 2021

Before starting his own band, Carmine Terracciano (EJ’s fearless musical leader and pianist for Club Cumming on the Coast’s “The Inn Crowd” on Sundays) was the keyboard player for The Tony Boffa Band for 15 years. 

The current Carmine Terracciano Band is filled with talented musicians who are also skilled at engaging and connecting with audiences of all ages. They are known for being a warm and fun band that brings a crowd together.  Part of that magic happens from the natural ability his musicians have to share their enthusiasm during life’s most memorable celebrations. 

Kevin Smith Kirkwood + Friends:
October 1+2, 2021

Kevin Smith Kirkwood (Kinky Boots) and friends join us for a weekend of stories, songs, and soul.

October 8+9, 2021

We are excited to welcome Alexis Michelle back to the Club Cumming on the Coast stage in Kennebunkport! Alexis opened our season in June, and she’s back to close the series with a bang!
