JACKSON, Wyo. \u2014 New Orleans has dished some of the world\u2019s most celebrated music. It\u2019s an undeniably uplifting vibe that permeates the soul. Funky drumbeats, greasy wailing saxophone, razor-sharp guitar playing, swampy organ swells and strutting bass lines are headed our way for a two night run with The New Orleans Suspects, Dec. 30 and New Year\u2019s Eve at the Pink Garter Theatre.\r\n\r\nTo undertand what this quintet is all about, let\u2019s start with where they\u2019ve put in their stage time over the last couple of decades. These Suspects include former members of The Neville Brothers, The Radiators, The Dirty Dozen, Royal Southern Brotherhood, and a saxophonist who was James Brown's horn director for twelve years. Though highly experienced individually, there\u2019s no denying the chemistry born from the sum of these parts and a project that\u2019s been together since 2009. This isn\u2019t a rotating cast of pick-up musicians from the Crescent City\u2014this is a unit with three studio albums and two live albums.\r\n\r\nWhat\u2019s on tap for these two nights?

Local rockers Lonesome Gold will open the show.\r\n\r\nNew Year\u2019s Eve will kick-off with a tribute to the legendary Dr. John leading up to midnight. The Suspects\u2019 second set will be for all the party people that want to stay up late and enjoy the first couple hours of the New Year, in Big Easy style.\r\n\r\nThe New Orleans Suspects, 9 p.m. Monday and Tuesday at the Pink Garter Theatre.
