It's been WAYYYYYYYYY too long since we updated the site. So much has happened in the last few months it would be impossible to highlight everything here, but a few items worthy of mention;

Firstly, we are settling in nicely with our new beat keeper, Marty who dazzles and amazes us all and gives everything he has at each and every show. What a monster - it's been a joy playing along side this musician. Looking forward to many more for sure.....

Secondly, we continue to fill our weekends throughout the coming months with show after show and things are tightening up more and more at each outting. Keep an eye on our events page for a show near you - we have dates throughout the Alberta area and hope to keep them coming.


See you soon!!

Well the world is truly a different place......but, we have been busy in the Suspects camp ramping up some new tunes, moving to a new rehearsal space and filling a much needed open bass position in the ranks. We welcome Reg Walsh to our debauchery and look forward to the mayhem that he will undoubtedly cause with us! Stay tuned, we are saying 'fuck it' to Covid and playing at various venues shortly. Stay happy and safe everyone......
