Nobody Is Suffering With The Suffers
As soon as The Suffers left the Fort Stage at Newport Folk Festival last July, I knew I would be a lifelong fan of this marvelous Gulf Coast soul band from Houston, Texas (Kam Franklin, the powerhouse lead singer, ensures you know from where they hail during the first few minutes of their set). I was fortunate to be able to see them at their first Boston show at Great Scott.
I had the chance to interview Adam Casteneda, the bass player, at Newport and discovered a bit more about the band than would be obvious merely from watching one of their high-energy shows.
From The Gulf Coast To Narragansett Bay
I had the pleasure of speaking about The Suffers with Adam Castaneda, the bass player for the band, shortly after their first appearance – on the Fort Stage, no less – at the Newport Folk Festival. I saw their set and absolutely loved them!
