WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Against all odds, The Radiators have kept their original line up together for 28 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. Their latest record, Dreaming Out Loud, is an accurate and intriguing self-portrait of these New Orleans natives; heartbroken by the devastation Hurricane Katrina brought to their beloved city, but not hopeless. Determined to record the album in their hometown, The Radiators teamed up with producer Mark Bingham at Piety St. Recording N.O.L.A. during the city's historical 2006 Mardi Gras celebration, when the New Orleans community gathered together to remind the world that the city and its traditions would in fact survive. There and then the band laid the tracks for Dreaming Out Loud - a New Orleans-flavored "war cry" that only The Radiators could assemble.
