Earlier this month, the New Orleans Suspects filmed this 9-minute jam, "Grits", at KDHX, a listener-supported community radio station in St. Louis.
The Suspects are a band whose line up (see below) exemplifies the mock-adage shared on their web site: "It’s been said that the musicians of New Orleans are all members of one gigantic band that breaks up into smaller groups on a nightly basis."
The New Orleans Suspects' lineup and their former bands:
Jake Eckert (The Dirty Dozen Brass Band)
Willie Green (The Neville Brothers)
C.R. Gruver (Outformation and Leo Nocentelli)
Reggie Scanlan (The Radiators)
Jeff Watkins (James Brown Band and Joss Stone Band)
