Stay tuned for more details as we get closer to the concert date.As a sneak peak to what will take place starting in 2018 on the Levitt Dayton stage, The Friends of Levitt Pavilion have announced a FREE Levitt Pavilion Preview Concert! The Levitt National Tour will present The Suffers on Thursday, August 17th at Dave Hall Plaza. The Suffers are a critical sensation and rising stars – an 8–piece powerhouse that will get you dancing to their fiery blend of Gulf Coast Soul meets rock meets funk!
Just as much influenced by classic rock & roll, country, Latin and Southern hip hop as they are the Stax/Volt or Muscle Shoals era. Late night legend David Letterman proclaimed in early 2015 “If you cant do this, get out of the business”, let it be known that The Suffers are here to stay! With a year that included performances for NPR’s Tiny Desk, Newport Folk Fest, Austin City Limits Music Festival and The Late Show, The Suffers have delivered over 150 stirring performances of their signature 3rd Coast Soul sound to thousands of new and old fans alike. The large ensemble packs each position of the rhythm and horn section with a level of talent and taste that provides the perfect foundation for singer Kam Franklin’s massive voice. The band’s sincerity and emotion are laid bare in their music, which has garnered an audience so broad and varied that they may prove to be the panacea for a jaded and stratified live music scene
Stay tuned for more details as we get closer to the concert date.
