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 on bass (Radiators, Professor Longhair Band); Mean Willie Green on drums (Neville Bros. current drummer since 1981); Jeff Watkins (James Brown BandJoss Stone Band) on saxophone; Jake Eckert on guitar/vocals (current member of The Dirty Dozen Brass Band); and CR Gruver on keyboards and vocals (Polytoxic, Outformation).

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.   Fans of New Orleans’ music are raving about the band’s live show! 

USA Today said this of their performance from NO Jazz Fest 2013:

“On Friday, outstanding early sets came from New Orleans Suspects, a five-piece consisting of former members of some of the city's top rock/funk/R&B bands...proved adept at mixing swampy rock, funk and high-energy R&B into extended jams. It was a sound that could only have bubbled up from this city, and the Suspects put their own spin on the repertoire.”
