Thank you all you good people of Qld. What a weekend! 3 great shows ..Redcliffe, Caloundra,and Redland Bay. Big crowds at every show made for a very satisfying jaunt up to the Sunshine State for the band.
It never ceases to amaze us the level of support afforded to the Rads up there. Friday at Redcliffe leagues was massive! Thanks to everyone who made it along to the Dolphins.
Saturday night at Caloundra RSL was fantastic ..even though they closed the bar halfway through our set ! ( we managed to get it back open though after we noticed they had pulled down the shutters and gave the management a serve over the p.a.!).. a win for everyone and common sense in general😄.
Sunday arvo was a top vibe with people everywhere for our gig with Mental as Anything. A beautiful day, the sun was out and the crowd in a great mood.
We also had a chaotic post gig "meet and greet "at the merchandise table with a million selfies and autographs and with so many people buying up Rads merch for themselves and their loved ones for Xmas ! Thanks a lot and great to have a chat with so many local guys n gals .
We head up to central Qld in 2 weeks for Shows at Gladstone and Emerald and we have been told that tickets are selling very well and quickly. Looking forward to doing it all again up there in a fortnight,although the weekend just gone will be hard to top!
Absolute cracker. Loveyour work Qld and thanks Alex Roosen for sharing your shots!
Cheers from The Radiators. ... See MoreSee Less

This weekend sees the band jetting up to Qld. for 3 shows in the fabulous Sunshine State. This is the first of two trips up there this month.
We will be in Central Qld for shows in Gladstone and Emerald just before Xmas but tomorrow (Friday) we kick off at Redcliffe Leagues Club Saturday we play up at the beautiful Sunshine Coast with a gig at Caloundra RSL.
We finish off with a late arvo gig with Mental As Anything at the Redland Bay Hotel in Brisbane. That gig being a second attempt by both bands, as the previous planned show was cancelled due to heavy rain and local flooding.( it's an outdoor venue).
Hopefully the weather is a bit more kind to us this time ! We are really looking forward to the shows as we always do when we play Qld.
Hope to see you Rads supporters and live music fans out and about this weekend.
Cheers, The Radiators. ... See MoreSee Less

The band performance part of the "Life's a Gamble" was shot at night in a quarry, would you believe, in Northbridge, a North Sydney suburb. We had these giant cardboard domino pieces as a backdrop and we were dressed to the nines in suits to try and obtain a classier look for the band. The shoot took a couple of days and was a labour of love from our director/ producer, the very talented Mike Heffernan. ( he even makes a cameo as the doctor delivering baby). The beach scenes were shot at Balmoral Beach in Northern Sydney. All the band members got to have a starring scene and there were some Academy Award performances by all of us. My favourite of course is with me and Brendan and the guzzling down of the poor Genie in the bottle. I wish I could remember the name of our delightful Genie, who really was the star of the film clip and weaved her magic throughout! Hopefully someone can help me out with that info. The whole thing was shot on film rather than videotape and thats why it h...

A gig fairly close to home and one that we've never done! Northmead Bowling Club or "NBC "as it is known..( can't work out why though 😀)..was the scene for Rads' Friday night and the bands first show for the summer.
A nice little club just up the road from Parramatta in Sydneys' west. A good turnout ensured a good night all round and our thanks go out to everyone who volunteered their valuable Friday night to get out and enjoy live music. Some real diehards among the crowd too, resplendant in their Rads t- shirts! Very stylish, love your work👍.
Saturday night and it was a return to the Wickham Park Hotel in Newcastle. The Wicko was packed and it is a bloody rockin' pub that's for sure. It is tiny inside but with a big outdoor beergarden there were people everywhere. The size of the venue makes for an intimate and "in your face " type gig and a totally fun experience. It's a bit different too, having to jump on stage directly from the foothpath outside !
We were waving to people in cars pulled up at the traffic lights as we walked outside and around the corner of the pub with our guitars on and Brian wearing his alien mask as our intro song went on. A great vibe though, and a great venue. Totally rock n roll !
Our thanks to management for their hospitality and of course a massive thank you to all you good Newcastle people ..who never fail to make us feel so special and welcome. (Thanks also Donnah Danswan for sharing the photos from Friday night 😀)

Our mini "Pub Tour" got off to bit of a shaky start at the Gymea Hotel on Friday night! They've recently installed Db meters in the hotel to measure volume coming off stage.
This doesn't really suit a band like us unfortunately and we got the call to " turn down " halfway through our set. This was a real vibe killer for us ,and we could see and feel the drop in intensety immediately in the crowd.
We ploughed on begrudgingly and managed to pick it back up after about 4 or 5 songs . Luckily the band and crowd adjusted to the point where the place was absolutely jumping by the final songs.
We pulled a win from the jaws of defeat but we doubt we will be going back there. Anything more than duos ( or very quiet bands)will trip the meter at the Gymea which is a shame ,because we've had some fantastic nights at that venue...
Saturday night and there were no volume dramas at the Panania Hotel. A good crowd had turned up and it was a top night indeed. The pub could use a stage however , and we had to set up on the floor . This is the only drawback to what is a great venue. We had a few issues with people casually sauntering onto "stage" to join us at times,but it was heaps of fun nonetheless ,and a good time was had by all!
Sunday arvo and we were back up the freeway north of Sydney at the Bateau Bay Hotel for a 4.30 kick off. What a great venue. You can bring the kids along , sit on the hill in the sun or rock out undercover in the open air beer garden.
A big crowd turned out on a beautiful afternoon and boy, they were in the mood to party ! We had such a great time ,and a sea of smiling faces in front and side of us , told us we were hitting the mark ! Great sing - alongs and massive response. Thanks to everyone who came along ,and also for the kind words from so many "Rads tragics" we chatted to after the show.
A great weekend for us. 3 out of 3 successful gigs.
Thanks to all the venues for their hospitality , much appreciated.Again ,our sincere thanks to all you guys n gals for your support. Love ya work ! Cheers , the Rads.(thanks Leah Cupples for sharing the photo from Bateau Bay ) ... See MoreSee Less
