Description

The Radiators:

The Radiators from New Orleans have combined the traditional musical styles of their native city with more mainstream rock and R&B influences to form a bouncy, funky variety of swamp-rock they call fish-head music. Described by OffBeat magazine as “New Orleans’ longest-running and most successful rock band”, The Radiators’ have had limited commercial success, with only a handful of chart appearances, but, as a party band from a party town, their enthusiastic live performances, danceable beats and relentless touring have earned the band a dedicated following and the admiration of many of their peers. In a feat of continuity rarely seen in the rock music world, the current (2010) five-man lineup is the same as when the band was formed in 1978.

The Radiators have a repertoire which includes over three hundred original songs—many never released on album—and over one thousand covers (or partial covers used as part of a medley). With the band’s approval, over 500 concert recordings have been made available for free (for non-commercial use) on the Internet Archive.

Paul Cebar Tomorrow Sound:

Milwaukee native Paul Cebar is a singing, strumming, and dancing museum of musical culture and a self-styled historian of myriad musical forms. Countless sounds pour forth when Cebar and his Milwaukeeans take the stage. New Orleans, Chicago, New York, Africa, Brazil, Cuba, jump-blues, gospel, jazz, reggae, calypso, soul and vintage R&B are starting points for something that becomes uniquely Cebar. This mishmash helps reimagine and liven up obscure classics, and the band’s originals present new viewpoints on established styles.
