There is a contagious and combustible energy every time the eight-piece band, The Suffers, steps on the scene. NPR’s Bob Boilen attributes the band’s allure to their “Soul, straight from horn to heart.” He adds, “This band is on fire when it’s in front of an audience…but the intensity of their shows is also captured in the studio.” Following The Suffers’ electrifying late-night TV debut on Letterman in 2015, David Letterman exclaimed, “If you can’t do this, get out of the business!” The Suffers exploded onto the scene that same year with their dazzling EP Make Some Room followed by their heralded self-titled debut in 2016.
