New Orleans Suspects - 2 sets (1 Little Feat, 1 Originals)
New Orleans Suspects brings together some of the best, most highly respected players in New Orleans including; “Mean” Willie Green on drums (Neville Bros.); Jeff Watkins on saxophone (James Brown Band, Joss Stone Band); Jake Eckert on guitar/vocals (Dirty Dozen Brass Band); CR Gruver on keyboards and vocals (Polytoxic, Outformation) and Eric Vogel (Nigel Hall Band) on bass guitar. Founding member Reggie Scanlan (The Radiators, Professor Longhair) still performs at select shows.

Known for their blazing live performances, New Orleans Suspects continue to excite audiences around the country and are revered in their hometown of New Orleans.
As Glide Magazine said, “Excuse the cliché, but if there is one act right now whose music can truly be considered a gumbo of styles, it’s the New Orleans Suspects…. those that were hip enough to get on the train were taken on a ride through the many sounds of the city’s music. Funk, soul, brass bands, R&B and zydeco were all given fair treatment by the Suspects, and the audience embraced every moment of it. It doesn’t matter how small or large the crowd is because the New Orleans Suspects play each show with the same vigor and are well worth catching.”
Bonerama
Bonerama
Bonerama has always been hailed as "unlike anything you've ever heard before”...
It’s the best way to describe this 16 year old powerhouse touring band from New Orleans, LA.
In addition to changing the way people think about the trombone, the sound of Bonerama has become an
influence and contribution to the sound of New Orleans music today. With newer acts such as Trombone
Shorty and Big Sam’s Funky Nation joining them on the national music scene, it’s New Orleans that has
benefited with a newfound reputation as being a bonafide "Trombone Town". These bands all carry the
trombone like the trophy it truly is in New Orleans. And Bonerama was there first.
The band has performed and recorded with countless national artists such as R.E.M., OKGo, Tom
Morello, Wayne Kramer (MC5), Jill Sobule and so many more, all while bringing their distinctive sounds
from New Orleans to a national spotlight. Festivals and events such as Monterey Jazz Fest to High Sierra
Music Festival, Jam Cruise, Bear Creek Festival and of course the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival
only outline the extensive festival work this band has under its’ name. National television appearances on
CBS (Late Show with David Letterman), HBO (Comic Relief, Treme) and CNN have further exposed
Bonerama to a wide range of unsuspecting new viewers.
While enduring lineup changes, member displacement, tragedy and loss over the years, the song for
Bonerama has remained the same; being centered around their beloved trombone & city, while striving
for greatness with a fun spirit.
Whether it’s their inventive covers or funky, rocking originals, Bonerama is calling you to Shake It Baby.
To the left and to the right. Or anyway you like it.
Rest assured, Bonerama will take you on your most memorable RIDE ON THE SLIDE!
