The New Orleans Suspects are "Mean Willie Green" from the Neville Brothers on drums, Reggie Scanlan of the Radiators on the bass, Jake Eckert on guitar from the Dirty Dozen Brass Band, Kevin Harris on saxophone from Dirty Dozen, and CR Gruver on keys from Outformation. These cats are all New Orleans, all the time.
Formed out of Asheville band Soulgrass Rebellion, the Get Right Band is Silas Durocher, Jesse Gentry, and Chris Pyle. Leaning more on the funk, reggae, and rock side, they play a 4/20 L.A.B. show with The Archrivals.
Three people were killed in last week's shootings in Tulsa, Okla.: Dannaer Fields, 49; William Allen, 31; and Bobby Clark, 54. Two others were wounded in the shootings. All of them were shot — apparently at random — in the predominantly black neighborhood of Northgate in northern Tulsa.
It was Bobby Clark's brother, Donny, who first found him after the fatal shooting.
"I came through there and I realized it was my brother laying in the street," Clark says. "They shot him under the armpit, and I think it hit his heart."
Despite falling short in the quest for the Republican presidential nomination, former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum has established himself as one of the dominant conservative voices in America, particularly when it comes to social issues such as abortion and birth control.
Santorum announced Tuesday that he is suspending his quest for the presidency.
Santorum ultimately chose to suspend his campaign ahead of the April 24 primary in Pennsylvania. A loss on his political home turf would have done serious damage to his future electoral prospects.
