New Orleans Suspects
New Orleans Suspects
New Orleans Suspects are unbelievably tight on stage with their peers, press, venue owners and promoters singing the praises of their musical prowess. They annually perform in a key slot on the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival’s main stage. USA Today called their Acura Stage set “Outstanding…a sound that could have only bubbled up from this city.…” New Orleans Jazzfest founder and current director Quint Davis says, “The Suspects are deep tissue New Orleans Funk and have emerged as one of the banner New Orleans music groups; taking their place among the standard bearers of our music. And they rock! Rather, funk.”
They have become a regular fixture at noted concert and festival venues in San Francisco, San Diego, St. Louis, Chicago, Minneapolis, Washington, D.C., Philadelphia, Atlanta, Birmingham, and in what has become a major stomping ground, New York City, where Village Voice called them “a seriously funky crew,” and even The New Yorker occasionally notes their passing through the metropolis. The San Diego Union Tribune called them, “a rollicking blend of funk, jazz, blues, rock and vintage N’awlins R&B, designed to fill dance floors with gyrating celebrants.” They have formed touring alliances with Tower of Power, Glen David Andrews (of Trémé fame) and Paul Barrere and Fred Tackett of Little Feat. The Barrere/Tackett/Suspects mash-up has been increasingly in demand at music festivals and has generated a track, “Dixie Highway,” that appears on Kaleidoscoped. Members of Tower of Power and “Big Chief” Juan Pardo also guest on the album on which the Suspects look at the history of New Orleans music through a brightly colored prismatic chamber and thus the album title. The band’s first, self-released eponymous album debuted in 2011 and featured the smoking CR Gruver original “36 Cars” as well as a few other band originals interspersed with cover songs. In 2012, the Suspects produced and released Caught Live at the Maple Leaf, a loving tribute to the nightclub where it all started and a testament to the band’s increasing skills. Their 2014 studio album, Ouroboros, released on Louisiana Red Hot Records, generated substantial radio play, both in the terrestrial world and on multiple Sirius/XM channels for focus tracks “Get Back What You Given,” Soothe Me,” and “Magdalena” as well as rave reviews and features in publications such as Stereophile, Downbeat, Modern Drummer and RelixMagazine.
Kaleidoscoped will be released digitally and on CD on September 16th and on vinyl on September 30th on Louisiana Red Hot Records. Headquartered in New Orleans, Louisiana Red Hot Records has released over 200 albums of the hottest Blues, Jazz, R&B, Gospel, Funk, Zydeco, Cajun and Rock, and is a leader among Southern independent labels with titles by a plethora of New Orleans acts including Rebirth Brass Band, Dumpstaphunk and Trombone Shorty.
