On Tuesday, September 29th Americana Fest kicked off in Nashville for a week of over 200 musical performances with The Suffers. What better way to kick it off than with a band that possesses all the musicianship and energy that’s celebrated throughout the festival? They took the stage at the BMI kick off party to entertain industry veterans and fans alike. Their vivacious mix of jazz, soul, and big band influences set the tone for one of the most eclectic festivals that rolls through the city.
In a short time, the band progressed from packing Houston venues to accepting invitations at festivals across the country. Including Voodoo Music + Arts Experience 2014, SXSW 2014, Dallas’ Index and Homegrown Festivals, Houston’s Free Press Summer Festival, and many more. They have since joined the ranks of Red Bull Sound Select and have remained a local Houston favorite. Even accepting eleven Houston Press Music Awards in three years.
