Many of us who reside in Providence are familiar with the Providence G. The lovely historic building has decorated the skyline for years and has seen several transformations throughout its lifetime. Now home to luxury apartments, the building is also the site of a fantastic rooftop restaurant and lounge boasting one of the most spectacular views of the city. Many Providence residents have great memories of Rooftop at the G, but not all of our memories involve enjoying amazing live music. This is quickly changing!
The Rooftop has showcased a number of regional and national acts throughout the year. From solo pianists to full bands, diverse talent has moved Rooftop visitors all summer. Enjoy unplugged singer-songwriters each Monday, local piano entertainer Billy Muston on Tuesdays, and full bands on Wednesdays and Thursdays representing several genres. You can enjoy live DJs during the weekend to round out a full week of performance.
After much success venturing into live music, the venue is excited to announce its capstone event of the season: Donavon Frankenreiter! This nationally acclaimed performer is entering his second decade as a singer-songwriter and solo artist. He has performed throughout the globe and is expected to bring 200 music enthusiasts to The Rooftop for his intimate performance on Tuesday, August 8.
When asked about the event, Brendan Chipley Roane, rooftop marketing manager, said, “It’s been wonderful hosting talented musicians from all over the country these past few months. This evening is definitely our capstone event of the season, and we are very excited for Donavon to perform on The Rooftop. There are very few upscale restaurant and lounges in the area that have live entertainment seven days a week, let alone on a rooftop relaxing by a fire pit.”
An evening of great music under the stars at one of the city’s most alluring venues does sound like a wonderful way to engage with Providence nightlife. You can find additional information and purchase tickets for this event at rooftopattheg.com.
