Crescent City’s supergroup, the New Orleans Suspects, is tied to the biggest names in New Orleans music. Regulars at the famed Maple Leaf and fully embodying the deep-seated flavor of the city are: “Mean” Willie Green (Neville Brothers’ 30 year drummer); Charlie Wooton (bassist with Chubby Carrier, Royal Southern Brotherhood and Bonerama); Jeff Watkins (saxophone with the James Brown Band and Joss Stone Band); Jake Eckert (lead guitarist of Dirty Dozen Brass Band); and CR Gruver on keyboards (Polytoxic, Outformation). Together they put their own twist on the traditions of New Orleans music - fever-inducing funk, irresistible R&B rhythms, Longhair rhumbas, dancing-in-the-street second lines, jazzy soul-drenched horns, mind-melting swamp hoodoo, and feet-don’t-fail-me-now Carnivale music - that takes the listener on a wild ride through the city’s musical history in a brand new vehicle. With four original albums and holding court regularly at the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival, they’ve got festival founder Quint Davis saying, “The Suspects are deep tissue New Orleans Funk … taking their place among the standard bearers of our music.”
