New Orleans Suspects sub at Maple Leaf Bar tonight, 7/16

The supergroup has been touring extensively, but is back in town and playing Papa Grows Funk’s regular Monday night gig on Oak Street.

This is a chance for locals to hear how the band, which features bassist Reggie Scanlan (the Radiators), drummer “Mean” Willie Green (the Neville Brothers), keyboardist and vocalist CR Gruver, guitarist Jake Eckert (Dirty Dozen Brass Band) and saxophonist Jeff Watkins (James Brown Band), has been developing.

They recently returned from a California tour that featured stops in San Diego, Los Angeles and at the High Sierra Music Festival. Gruver reports on his Facebook page that the band has been adding some new songs to its repertoire.

The hard touring group hits the road again this coming weekend with shows in Birmingham and Atlanta before heading to Minnesota and Colorado. They return to play at Tipitina’s on August 17. It will be a free show.
