New Orleans Suspects began playing together in 2009 as a pick-up band at the Maple Leaf in New Orleans. Comprised of some of the most seasoned, highly respected players in NOLA, the group called themselves The Unusual Suspects. Their chemistry was undeniable and by the summer of 2011 they decided to tour full-time, renaming the band New Orleans Suspects. They quickly began attracting large crowds from San Francisco to New York. In three short years they released three CDs and established themselves as one of New Orleans’ best supergroups - featuring "Mean" Willie Green (Neville Brothers, Bob Dylan) on drums, Reggie Scanlan (The Radiators, Professor Longhair) on bass, Jake Eckert (Dirty Dozen Brass Band, Dr. John) on guitar, CR Gruver (Outformation, The Meters) on keys, and Jeff Watkins (James Brown) on sax.

Originally a blues trio formed in 2007, Devil's Hollow has now grown to a six-piece blues-funk monster. Incorporating a variety of influences ranging from classic blues (Freddie King) to NOLA swamp-funk (The Meters) to Southern jam (Allman Bros.) with a dash of psychedelia, the band's dynamic live sound has allowed them to share the stage with luminaries such as Los Lobos, Bob Schneider, Monte Montgomery, Los Lonely Boys, Del Castillo, and Rev. Horton Heat. Featuring two capable lead guitarists in Justin Murray and Nick Doe, the band has supplemented their sound through bassist Jimmy Hartman (Del Castillo, Jeff Strahan), keyboardist Matt Cain (Nadis Warriors, Spank) percussionist Mike Zeoli (Del Castillo, Robert Rodriguez's Chingon) and drummer Tom Raines. or
