You need Java to see this applet.
We perform
Rhythm & Blues/Contemporary Country/Southern Rock
cover tunes from the past & present represented in a
diverse song-list. By altering our sets from gig to gig, it
allows us to keep our shows fresh giving our guests
great entertainment time after time.

C'mon out & party with us - we'll be sure to get you out
of your seats with some foot-stomping, rhythm & blues,
feel good music!
The band, originally a four piece rock group formed in
the fall of 2008, has had several member
and name changes.

We re-named the band "
The Local Suspects" in the
winter months of 2009. We added a keyboard player in
January 2012 & a lead vocalist to front the band.

In July 2012 we changed our line-up once again & with
the added personnel we launched a new musical
direction into
Rhythm & Blues Party Rock with a little
Contemporary Country/Southern Rock flavor.
