The Radiators

The Radiators got started on January 28, 1978, during a rehearsal in the garage of one of the bandmembers; by the late '80s, they had become one of New Orleans' most popular rock & roll bands, serving up a smorgasbord of musical styles that included blues, R&B, funk, and rootsy rock & roll. Founding members keyboardist/vocalist Ed Volker and guitarist/vocalist Camile Baudoin began playing together in the 1960s. Drummer Frank Bua began working with the two in 1970, and guitarist Dave Malone and bassist Reggie Scanlan played with other New Orleans bands until they formed as the Rhapsodizers in the mid-'70s. They changed their name to the Radiators in 1978 and released their debut, Work Done on Premises, two years later on their own Croaker Records. Heat Generation followed in 1982, and the band began to develop a loyal following in the Crescent City by the time percussionist Glenn Sears joined in early '80s, making them a sextet. The Radiators developed a reputation for intense, lengthy marathon-like live shows that would last three hours or more, akin to what the Allman Brothers and Little Feat were doing; their shows became highlights of the annual New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival, and word of their reputation spread. In 1987, after a six-year hiatus, the Radiators signed to Epic Records and released Law of the Fish, followed two years later with Zig-Zaggin' Through Ghostland. After the release of Total Evaporation in 1991, the band issued Snafu 10-31-'91, 1995's New Dark Ages, and 1996's Party On. The group continued being active into the new millennium, releasing the self-titled The Radiators in 2001 and Dreaming Out Loud in 2006. ~ Richard Skelly, Rovi

Best I ever heard. Step aside Gregg and Little Feat. Gotta make room for Radiators. Wish I knew them in the '70s.

Great live band ss7. Too bad pretty much retired.

I'm a big Feat fan, and have a couple of Radiators studio discs but weren't that impressed with them. Everything sounded the same, as opposed to Feat's multiple singers and songwriters. But this live Lucinda is pretty darn spectacular!

Put their twin leads up against any band. ABB Wishbone Ash come to mind.

Worked with them at a Crayfish Festival back in the 90s at Waterloo village NJ. They put on a nice show. One advantage to being a Stagehand is always having a backstage pass, great Music and getting paid for it too.

My brother went to Tulane in the early 80's and turned me on to these guys. Have seen them many times and NEVER came away disappointed . Highly recommend "Work Done On Premises" for those looking for a good introduction to the band. One of my favorites of all time - no doubt!

One of the best 3 rock and roll bands of all time, well, in my opinion.
