Martin Bandyke on The Suffers

The Suffers will make their first appearance at Bank of Ann Arbor’s Sonic Lunch concert series on Thursday, July 14, and they are much more than just another soul revival band. Influenced by classic rock & roll, country, Latin and hip hop as well as the Stax/Volt or Muscle Shoals era, The Suffers are bringing a fresh approach to what they have coined Gulf Coast Soul. Hailing from Houston, Texas, the ten-piece band features an exquisite horn section that provides the perfect foundation for singer Kam Franklin’s impressive voice. Touring to support their 2016 self-titled debut album, The Suffers are sure to make a commanding statement when they play Sonic Lunch at noon on Thursday, July 14.
