THE RADS ON FACEBOOK
The band is off again to Qld this weekend for a few shows. (can't stay away from the place !) We are doing a show at the old Ettamoggah at Palmview on Friday night. Its now called the Pub at Aussie World for some reason! You locals will know what we are talking about anyway.
The following day we are flying up to Gladstone for the first of our two appearances on the bill of Jimmy Barnes - Official " Hotter than Hell" tour. We were rapt to be invited to play these shows, having long been huge admirers of the great man and of course his work with the legendary Cold Chisel.
We return to Brisbane for our second Barnesy show on Sunday for an afternoon performance . This time at Redland Bay Hotel .
It's gonna be another busy weekend on the road for us but that's how we like it.. Keeps us out of trouble ... Sort of ..😜😈😈🎸🎵🎼🎶🎸 Cheers, the Rads. ... See MoreSee Less

Sunday arvo at The Coolangatta Hotel and the band was upstairs this time. A much bigger room to play in and a much bigger crowd to match. What a roll up ! The place was packed ..and it was so great to play to such a bumper crowd on the Gold Coast.
There was a real buzz in the room from the punters and despite a few difficulties with bits of our hired equipment here and there and a bit of feedback rearing its' ugly head from the in-house p.a., we came through with a win.
Thanks to everyone who attended yesterday .. You were sensational! It was a real thrill to play for you as you encouraged and cheered us all the way. The volume of the massive crowd participation bit during the "don't worry.. Its' all right" singalong at the end, was one of the loudest we have ever heard and nearly lifted the roof of the place! We very rarely have had a bad gig on the "Goldy" over all the years we have been performing there ...and yesterday was one of the best!
Love your work good people.. Thanks again, cheers The Rads. ... See MoreSee Less
"Roomful of Diamonds" from the floor at The Juniors! (thanks Andy for sharing) ... See MoreSee Less
The Radiators added 4 new photos.
First gig for 2017 ..and what a way to kick start the new year !! A surprisingly good roll up of people last night helped make it a memorable gig indeed.
The venue, the famous South Sydney Juniors club was filled with a rocking roll up of smiling and happy punters determined to have a good time. The mood was infectious and drove the band to go hard from the start, rather than just ease our way into the performance.
Spy v Spy set up the mood of the room with a great set that went down a storm with the audience. The boys were firing!
Our thanks to The Juniors Kingsford production crew also, who supplied a great sound and lighting system. The huge led screens behind the band made for quite a spectacle and added a lot to the atmosphere.. But mostly thanks again to all you guys n gals who fronted up last night for some live music and made us feel so goddam welcome. We were rapt with the reception afforded to us and your generous and genuine response to the band.
Friday the13th? It was definitely lucky for us !! Till next time , cheers from The Rads.
PS, thanks Andy for the photos! ... See MoreSee Less

Greetings folks. Happy new year to all. This weekend we start our 2017 campaign and it happens to be on Friday the 13th!!
Sounds ominous.Does that mean good or bad luck ? We'll take it as good, because we are back playing ..and we are all fighting fit.
We start in Sydneys' Eastern Suburbs where we have havn't been for ages, at the fabulous South Sydney The Juniors Kingsford It's a great venue and we are hoping for a good roll up to help us kick off the new year. We are appearing with very special guests Spy v Spy who always put on an awesome show!
Saturday morning we are on a plane headed for Qld where we are booked for a private function on the Sunshine Coast.
Sunday we travel down to The Gold Coast for a late arvo show at the The Coolangatta Hotel. We had a great gig the last time we played there with a huge and vibrant crowd of sun and funseekers in attendance. It's still holiday time so we are hoping again for a packed and rowdy audience . Then its a mad dash to the Airport for an evening flight back home .
A busy little weekend but a good way to hook back into the swing of things and get the Rad ball rolling ( and rockin')
Cheers from The Rads. ... See MoreSee Less
