This event is all ages
The Suffers are Houston’s award-winning 8-piece ensemble that have redefined the sound of Gulf Coast Soul. Established in 2011, The Suffers’ lineup was curated by bassist Adam Castaneda and vocalist/keyboardist Pat Kelly, who brought on trumpet player Jon Durbin, trombonist Michael Razo, guitarist
Kevin Bernier, percussionist Jose “Chapy” Luna, and drummer/vocalist Nick Zamora, while frontwoman Kam Franklin topped off the group with soaring vocals.
The last two years have brought the band to new heights, as they played 300+ shows across North America, Europe, Japan and Australia, visited NPR in Washington, DC for a Tiny Desk Concert, made their national television debut on Late Show With David Letterman, and released their highly anticipated self-titled album alongside performances on The Daily Show with Trevor Noah and Jimmy Kimmel Live! In a short time, the band has progressed from packing Houston venues to accepting invitations for featured performances at Hangout Music Festival, Forecastle Festival, Electric Forest Festival, Afropunk, Pemberton Music Festival, Austin City Limits, Newport Folk Festival, High Water Festival, XPoNential Festival, High Sierra Music Festival, Landmark Music
Festival, Voodoo Music + Arts Experience, LouFest, AmericanaFest, UTOPiAfest, SXSW, Free Press Summer Festival, Untapped Festival, CMJ Music Marathon, and more. The Suffers have remained a local favorite, accepting 23 Houston Press Music Awards in the last four years. The band is currently putting the final touches on a 2018 full length release!

Lounge on Fire
Lounge on Fire is a steel cut, blackened and peppered, cock-eyed, funk-trunked, hip-dipped flat-on-your-back pants-off-dance-off machine, also known as a sexadelic freak funk band. Lecherously charged spitfire vocals from singer and guitarist Nathan Norton are backed by co-founder Josh Gilmore’s precision finger-funk bass and Wade Ronsse’s pulsing disco-rock drums. Alan Schwaderer’s dexterously ripping keyboard, guitar, and accordion joins in, as well as an indomitable horn trio of Seth Hoffman on trumpet, Matt Patterson on saxophone, and Kevan Ash on trombone, to create a cabaret that offers a dance party for the dubious listener and a mélange of musical dynamics for those ambitious to engage beyond the beat. Combining at times elements of funk, rock, jazz, latin, psychedelia, and hip hop, Lounge on Fire explores the spectrum of eclecticism, drawing from such influences as Frank Zappa, Beck, the Red Hot Chili Peppers, the Talking Heads, and Led Zeppelin.
