Where should I start with this one? I will say this…I know all my Texas readers especially those from Houston will know about this next wonderful band I am about to share but the rest of the masses must not let this band slip through the cracks. The Suffers (Kam, Adam, Nick, Patrick, Jon, Kevin, Michael, Jose and former members Cory and Alex) formed in Houston, TX around 2011 pegging their sound to be Gulf Coast Soul. Agreed but with hints of ska, classic soul, R&B and reggae. Winning a number of awards, 11 Houston Press Music Awards in 2015 and gaining much recognition from the likes of Billboard, Esquire, SPIN, Paste and The New York Times. Man o’ man they are such a beautiful mixture of many forms of music…it’s just a well seasoned music machine. The band has great chemistry that keeps the performances nicely neat and tight. Motown comes to mind and especially Gladys Knight and the Pips…A force to be reckoned with musically. I will just let them tell you! Makes me feel like dancing or tapping along. It’s that good y’all!
