The New Orleans Suspects formed in summer of 2011 in the wake of the breakup of The Radiators after 34 years. The band comprises some of the best, most highly respected players in New Orleans, including: Reggie Scanlan, bass (Radiators, Professor Longhair Band); Mean Willie Green, drums (Neville Bros. current drummer since 1981); Jeff Watkins (James Brown Band, Joss Stone Band), saxophone; Jake Eckert, guitar/vocals (current member of The Dirty Dozen Brass Band); and C. R. Gruver (The Meters Experience, Outformation), keyboards and vocals. The band combines original songs in the New Orleans style with hits and obscurities from the Allen Toussaint and Dr. John songbooks, as well as performing favorites from Radiators, Nevilles and Dirty Dozen repertoire. They have released two albums, an eponymous studio album and their latest release, Live at the Maple Leaf, which was selected as a new and noteworthy release by itunes in January.
