The New Orleans Suspects have been tearing up the festival and club circuit for the past 8 years. This New Orleans Supergroup has been laying down its Swampified Rock and Roll throughout North America at a feverish pace. Their music combines irresistibly tight funk, souldful horns, Americana based rhythm and blues, and a pinch of jamband to create a uniquely funky groove.
The group 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 BrassBand); CR Gruver on keyboard/vocals (Polytoxic, Outformation); and Eric Vogel on bass (North Mississippi Allstars, Fred Wesley).
About Jennifer Hartswick:
Jennifer first came to our attention as a guest on Phish’s studio version of “Birds Of A Feather” on the 1998 studio album The Story Of The Ghost. Phish front man Trey Anastasio hit it off with Hartswick and invited her to join the Trey Anastasio Band in 2001 and she’s been a core member of nearly all of Trey’s solo projects since.
