The New Orleans Suspects (members of The Neville Bros, Dirty Dozen Brass Band, The Radiators)

The New Orleans Suspects

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. (This could just as easily be said for Philly musicians). If this were really the case, The New Orleans Suspects would be in a class all their own. The group is comprised of musicians with experience and versatility that rival any other band that the city has ever produced.

The New Orleans Suspects feature Mean Willie Greene, drummer for the Neville Brothers for the past 30 years, Jake Eckert guitarist from Dirty Dozen Brass Band, Jeff Watkins saxophonist from James Brown's band, Reggie Scanlan, bassist of The Radiators for nearly three decades, and C.R. Gruver, piano and organ player from Outfirmation and Leo Nocentelli's band.

Together these musicians create music that is firmly rooted in the modern New Orleans sound with compelling originals and tasteful covers.

Jim Stephens' Full Tilt Boogie Band feat. Chuck Treece, Elliott Levin & Rah Sungee

Jim Stephens’ Full Tilt Boogie Band is a collective of some of the finest musicians from Philadelphia, led and produced by Jim Stephens on lap steel and guitar. The band blends a soulful and upbeat hybrid of jazz, funk, rhythm and blues, and gospel. The collective features all band leaders in their own right, with Chuck Treece (McRad, Bad Brains, Billy Joel, D’Angelo) on drums, Elliott Levin (Sun Ra, Odean Pope, West Philly Orchestra) on tenor sax, Rah Sungee (Lauren Hill, Kindred) on bass, Scott Coulter (Get Happy) playing keys, Monique Canniere (Divine Hand Ensemble) on violin and vocals, and the co-lead vocals of Kinyon Lanier (Tony Moore and Jehova’s Chosen) and Vinchelle Woods (Tony Moore, The Perfecting Church.) It is routine for other musicians to be welcomed on stage for sitting in during the band’s sets, and for other musicians to be added for shows as the performance may call for.
