The Radiators Farewell Concert
The Radiators, also referred to as The New Orleans Radiators, will be performing their farewell concert at Tipitina’s on Saturday, June 11, 2011. Featuring the original band members Camile Baudoin, Frank Bua, Dave Malone, Reggie Scanlan, and Ed Volker, the farewell concert will include the bands’ hits and thousands of covers from their start in 1978. The Radiators look to its New Orleans roots for a unique rock and R&B sound they coined as “fish head.” They began playing weekly at Luigi’s Pizza Parlor and soon became the consistent entertainment for the Krewe of Mystic Orphans and Mystics’ ball during Mardi Gras season.
Most recently, The Radiators have been seen on MTV, VH1, and CMT for their performances at a benefit concert helping victims of Hurricane Katrina. They have also held a coveted spot as the closing performance on a main stage at the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival annually for over a decade.
The Radiators will commemorate their history at the venue where they recorded their first album, Tipitina’s. Enjoy the sounds of swamp rock at The Radiator’s final performance while staying at the Grand Victorian. Less than 2 miles away from Uptown Tipitina’s, it’s the premier place to stay for the original New Orleans’ band’s farewell concert. There is still availability for the weekend of June 11, but book quickly before the Grand Victorian has no vacancy!
