The Suffers

Sunday, July 3 | Bullen Park | 7pm

“Soul, straight from horn to heart…[The Suffers] are on fire when in front of an audience.”— NPR

There is a contagious and combustible energy every time the eight-piece band from Houston, Texas, The Suffers, steps onto the stage. The Suffers exploded onto the scene in 2015 with their dazzling EP Make Some Room, which was followed by their critically heralded self-titled debut in 2016. Their latest 2018 release, Everything Here, is the band’s most bold statement yet. Lead Singer Kam Franklin states, “Our hope is that our fans walk away feeling empowered, resilient, and inspired to live a better life.” The Suffers have got everything you need with no need to look further – a heaping dose of soul, a dash of reggae, a splash of jazz, a pinch of salsa, a hint of rock ‘n’ roll and a dollop of hip hop and funk – and that is just a few ingredients simmering inside their magical Gulf Coast soul. They first appeared at TD JazzFest 2019 indoors at McPherson Playhouse, and now return to party on the outdoor stage at Bullen Park! Juliet Terrill bass, Kevin Bernier guitar, Michael Razo trombone, Jon Durbin trumpet, Nick Zamora drums, Jose “Chapy” Luna percussion
