New Orleans Suspects to headline Sunday @ NedFest

Who are the New Orleans Suspects, you say? Let's start with Mean Willie Green on the drums, drummer for the Neville Bros. since 1981, not to mention playing on albums by Paul Simon, Bob Dylan and the Grateful Dead. Then add Reggie Scanlan, bassist for The Radiators for all 33 years of their existence, plus he was a member of Professor Longhair's band. On sax there's James Brown's band leader (for the last 12 years of his life) Jeff Watkins, who after Brown passed away led Joss Stone's band for 6 years. Next we've got the Dirty Dozen Brass Band's Jake Eckert on guitar and vocals and C.R. Gruver of the Meters Experience on keys.
 
This will be a special three-set show leading off with Paul and Fred doing an acoustic duo, then a set of the New Orleans Suspects, then a set of the big jam supergroup with the Feat guys joining the Suspects.
