'Make Some Room' Say The Suffers
Have we mentioned that we really love bands with horn sections? There is nothing quite like a brassy exclamation point to really put the icing on the cake of a great band. Case in point are those sensational purveyors of soul satisfying grooves and sunny vibes, The Suffers. Firm favorites of ours from our first listen a couple of years ago, the award-winning Houston ten-piece have proved the appeal of Kam Franklin's richly resonant voice and their soul, r'n'b and afro-beat inspired sound with ease in the time since, gathering wide-spread acclaim all the way from major festival stages to prompting David Letterman himself to utter in awe, 'if you can't do this, get out of the business!'. Having had the pleasure ourselves of experiencing them up close and personal in New York for our CMJ showcase last year, here we can relive the moment with footage of The Suffers hitting the stage at Rockwood Musical Hall for WFUV's CMJ Showcase this year.
