New Orleans Suspects

January 7 @ 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm


New Orleans Suspects began playing together in 2009 as a pick-up band at the Maple Leaf in New Orleans. Comprised of some of the most seasoned, highly respected players in NOLA, the group called themselves The Unusual Suspects. Their chemistry was undeniable and by the summer of 2011 they decided to tour full-time, renaming the band New Orleans Suspects. They quickly began attracting large crowds from San Francisco to New York. They have currently released five albums and established themselves as one of New Orleans’ best supergroups.  Eddie Christmas, Eric Vogel, Jake Eckert, CR Gruver, and Jeff Watkins make up the band.

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.
