The Suffers To Perform At House of Independents In Asbury Park

The Suffers To Perform At House of Independents In Asbury Park(ASBURY PARK, NJ) -- Houston's award-winning 8-piece ensemble The Suffers are currently finishing up their upcoming sophomore record and released their newest single "I Think I Love You" in November.  They will bring their headlining North American tour to the House of Independents in Asbury Park on Friday, April 20th - sandwiched between a show at the World Cafe in Philadelphia, PA (April 19) and Baby's All Right in Brooklyn, NY (April 21).

The Suffers' wrapped a tour with Turkuaz late last year, and co-presented a Hurricane Harvey benefit concert with Newport Folk Presents. The concert, billed as "With A Little Help From Our Friends", featured The Suffers, Jim James of My Morning Jacket, Shakey Graves, and more, raising $80,000 for hurricane relief efforts!

Established in 2011, The Suffers' lineup was curated by bassist Adam Castaneda and vocalist/keyboardist Pat Kelly, who brought on trumpet player Jon Durbin, trombonist Michael Razo, guitarist Kevin Bernier, percussionist Jose "Chapy" Luna, and drummer/vocalist Nick Zamora, while frontwoman Kam Franklin topped off the group with soaring vocals.

The last three years have brought the band to new heights, as they played over 300 shows across North America, Europe, Japan and Australia, visited NPR in Washington, DC for a Tiny Desk Concert, made their national television debut on Late Show With David Letterman, and released their highly anticipated self-titled album alongside performances on The Daily Show with Trevor Noah and Jimmy Kimmel Live!

In a short time, the band has progressed from packing Houston venues to accepting invitations for featured performances at Hangout Music Festival, Forecastle Festival, Electric Forest Festival, Afropunk, Pemberton Music Festival, Austin City Limits, Newport Folk Festival, High Water Festival, XPoNential Festival, High Sierra Music Festival, Landmark Music Festival, Voodoo Music + Arts Experience, LouFest, AmericanaFest, UTOPiAfest, SXSW, Free Press Summer Festival, Untapped Festival, CMJ Music Marathon, and more. The Suffers have remained a local favorite, accepting 23 Houston Press Music Awards in the last four years.

Pat DiNizio: In His Own Words

Pat DiNizio: In His Own Words

We’ve lost many rockers in recent years, but Pat was one of us. When I first heard about his passing, I instantly recalled one special night at The Strand in Lakewood.  DiNizio was part of a Backstage Pass show (one that turns the theater into a listening room with the audience sitting on the stage with the artist) in which Pat played a few songs and shared stories about his life. He was very introspective that night and might have given us a special New Jersey version of his old Las Vegas show “Confessions of a Rock Star.”  These were stories about growing up in New Jersey, raising a daughter after a divorce, first successes with the band, and the moment he realized he wanted to play rock and roll for the rest of his life.  The show was broadcast live on our internet radio station and after searching through old hard drives, the recording was found.  What follows is one night with Pat DiNizio in his own words…
