The red-hot jazz and irresistible R&B that come from the New Orleans Suspects is a rollicking blend of old-school jams and vintage carnival chaos from a roster of the most highly respected players in the Big Easy. Mean Willie Green, known for his work with the Neville Brothers, holds the rumba rhythms on drums. Jeff Watkins, from the James Brown Band, wails on the saxophone. Dirty Dozen Brass Band alumnus Jake Eckert leads the pack on guitars and vocals, and bassist Reggie Scanlan (the Radiators) and keyboardist CR Gruver (Polytoxic) round out the troupe. The band's latest album, Ouroboros, shows the New Orleans Suspects at their traditionally twisted best, and the band sizzles this week when they perform on Sunday, Dec. 7, at HopMonk Tavern, 230 Petaluma Ave., Sebastopol. 7pm. $20. 707.829.7300.
