On Saturday, March 8th, 2008 at 8PM, the Inter-Media Art Center (also known as “IMAC”) in Huntington, Long Island will present an evening with New Orleans "Fishhead" Rockers the RADIATORS.
Against all odds, The Radiators have kept their original line up together for 25 years, bringing their New Orleans-infused blend of swamp rock and rhythm and blues to fans throughout the United States and Europe. With a constantly changing “book” of more than 300 original songs, as well as hundreds more covers, The Radiators never play the same show twice. As a result, they are followed around the country by a devoted group of “fishheads”, who use meetings at live shows, as well as the internet to discuss various aspects of the band’s music.
As The Radiators’ sound and stage show have been influenced by jam bands of the sixties and seventies such as The Grateful Dead and the Allman Brothers Band, so have younger jam bands of the nineties and beyond listed The Radiators as a major influence. Members of Phish, Blues Traveler, Spin Doctors, Widespread Panic and Gomez have paid tribute to The Radiators in interviews and on stage.
The Radiators- keyboardist/vocalist Ed Volker, guitarist/vocalist Dave Malone, guitarist Camile Baudoin, bassist Reggie Scanlan and drummer Frank Bua- stick to the unpretentious sound and style honed over their 25 years together.
