phone interview: New Orleans Suspects
Listen to a conversation with the New Orleans Suspects before they play Milwaukee’s Shank Hall that night. Terry chats with the group at 3:30pm.
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. In five short years they’ve released four albums and established themselves as one of New Orleans’ best supergroups.
