Saturday 7th of July in Shortt's live music venue is one for the book, as we welcome the yummy Unusual Suspects to our Saturday night slot, often described as the playboys of the Waterford music scene, they never fail to disappoint with their high energy shows. The Unusual Suspects are a Waterford based band who in their brief yet exciting life so far has managed to climb the entertainment ladder and perform in some of Ireland's top venues and alongside some of the countries most sought after bands. With a jam packed calendar this is certainly one of Ireland's hardest working groups. The powerful stage performance creates an almost enigmatic symbiotic relationship between the crowd and the band as people are brought through dynamic and diverse genres of music, from the trumpet grooves of Stevie Wonder, the reggae beats of Bob Marley, the classic scream of Led Zeppelin, the modern flow of Bruno Mars and the spine chilling blast of Pink Floyd, crowds are always left screaming for more.
September 2011 has seen the five piece group first overseas concert In Faaker See in Austria where they got two headlining spots at the Harley Davidson European Bike, which housed 250,000 over the weeklong festival. The Suspects energetic show left the crowds begging for more, which landed them a 2012 European tour ... Which will be announced soon,
The Suspects are made up of five talented energetic musicians who are, Shane O'Rourke (Vocals, Guitar) Conor Cleare (Vocals, Guitar) Ed O'Neil (Keyboard,Trumpet,Vocals) Michael O'Brien ( Bass) Peter Sauvage (Drums) they each bring their own style to the band which combined is electric and setting a new standard for other cover bands. So see you all down at Shortt's.
