Fred Tackett is a multi-instrumentalist and songwriter best known for his work as a member of the legendary band Little Feat, heralded for their swampy, bluesy Americana-rock. Paul Barrere has been the guitarist for Little Feat since 1972.   Additionally, he has recorded and performed with many notable musicians including Robert Palmer, Bonnie Raitt and Carly Simon.   Tackett and Barrere tour as an acoustic duo and with Dead Feat, a quartet which includes Anders Osborne and Bill Kreutzmann. Tackett and Barrere have been joining New Orleans Suspects on tour dates for the last several  years receiving rave reviews from their fans!


New Orleans Suspects includes: Reggie Scanlan on bass (The Radiators, Professor Longhair Band); “MEAN” WILLIE GREEN on drums (Neville Bros.); Jeff Watkins on saxophone (James Brown Band, Joss Stone Band); Jake Eckert on guitar/vocals (Dirty Dozen Brass Band); and CR Gruver on keyboards and vocals (Polytoxic, Outformation).


The band’s 2014 release Ouroboros (Louisiana Red Hot Records) features 10 original songs that define the band’s sound, which is one that puts their own twist on the traditions of New Orleans music–fever-inducing funk, irresistible R&B rhythms, Longhair rhumbas, dancing-in-the-street second lines, jazzy soul-drenched horns, mind-melting swamp hoodoo, and feet-don’t-fail-me-now Carnivale music.  The CD has received rave reviews and is in rotation on 3 Sirius/XM stations: Bluesville, Jam_ON and The Loft.
