New Orleans Suspects
When New Orleans Suspects arose from the primordial musical soup that is New Orleans, they were a fill-in band and an occasional jam band at their neighborhood Maple Leaf Bar. The group brought together some of the best, most highly respected players in New Orleans including Jake Eckert, Jeff Watkins, CR Gruver “Mean” Willie Green on drums, and Reggie Scanlan. When they started touring late in 2011, naysayers in the Crescent City agreed it would not last; the Suspects would be another short-lived super group that would quickly fall apart under the weight of egos and money. New Orleans Suspects exceeded expectations and some five years later they have delivered their fourth album release, Kaleidoscoped.
