OVER THREE DECADES OF HARD WORK IN THE TRENCHES COMES TO A CLOSE

One of the longest lived American bands in recent memory and a true jam music pioneer, The Radiators have announced their current run of shows will be their last. A statement titled “Fold Up The Big Top" on their official website reads:

After 33 years...over 4500 live shows...and a dozen albums...legendary New Orleans rockers The Radiators are finally calling it quits. The band has officially decided to break up in mid-June following their final tour, which will include one last New Years' Eve run, a MOMs Ball and also headlining their final appearance at The New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival. The band will honor all dates already on their schedule and are planning to add as many shows as possible before ending their storied 33 year career. The guys want to whole-heartedly thank their long time fans for making this ride as amazing as it has been. They truly feel that their fans are the best and most dedicated in the world and have kept their traveling circus alive. Individual band members will announce their plans in the near future.

The Radiators play two shows in New Orleans this coming weekend—Saturday, November 13 at the Maple Leaf, and Sunday, November 14 at the Oak Street Po-Boy Festival.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
