The unusual Suspects


The Unusual suspects


Based out of Kenosha, WI, The Unusual Suspects are SE Wisconsin's premier 90's rock band. The Unusual Suspects play a variety of 90's alternative, pop, and rock; along with other random songs that they see fit. Their live shows are a combination of music, comedy, and an anything goes attitude.


The Unusual Suspects were formed in Las Cruces, New Mexico in 1875 at the height of the gunslinger days of the Wild West. All four members met at the local watering hole, and bonded over their love of whiskey and ragtime music. The members were all murdered in a gun fight after an argument broke out over whether or not women should be allowed to vote. All four members were then reincarnated in the early 1980's.

Sometime around 2009, the guys reunited and formed a band called, See Also Apathy. It was a short lived adventure that resulted in a new band, called Gun Shy Martyr. That band lasted a couple of years before giving way to The Unusual Suspects.
