A couple of cracker shows this weekend. Friday night at the Canterbury Hurlstone RSL was a great night with a nice turn out of people to see the double header of Rads and Spy v Spy. πŸ’₯

The Spys were in top form and sounded fantastic . They certainly paved the way for us and we launched into a crowd already vibed up and ready to go. A great reaction and also plenty of t - shirt sales as well. A meet and greet with a heap of supporters after the show was hectic and fun. πŸ˜‚

Another mint condition photo of Geoffs' old band "Twister" appeared again as well to be signed by him. 😎 Thanks to everyone who came along to this great club and supported both bands. πŸ‘

Saturday night we were back at the Ettamoggah in Rouse Hill. It seemed like the band was only there a little while ago, so we were worried we would'nt get much of a roll up this time. Bloody hell !! ..The place was packed and an even bigger crowd in attendance than last time! πŸ‘

Thanks to all you good people for an outstanding reception. We had a lot of fun and you guys went with us. The joint was rockin ' !! We were also rapt to catch up with none other than the fabulous Fess Parker who came along for a bit of a catch up with his old mates and a hit of loud n' live music. He's looking great and it was excellent to see him again πŸ˜€.

All in all a great weekend for us and now we set our sights on a very busy couple of weeks coming up with 3 Qld shows next weekend then straight onto " Rock the Boat" the following week. πŸ›³

cheers to all , The Rads.

Traffic coming out of Sydney on Friday evening was horrific due to the long weekend. Where does everyone go ? ?..The main roads and freeway were carparks at times and so Band and Crew were bushed by the time we all finally..(the trip took twice as long as normal !)..got to Lemontree for our gig. Luckily for us it was all worthwhile as a pretty good crowd had rolled up . After a few tequilas and Red Bulls, Pale ales and a nibble on the food platter we were nourished, fired up and ready to start work ! ( what do you mean that your boss doesn't let you do this ??..)

We went over really well and we're sure you must have been able to hear us 10 km away.. Such a sleepy little town.. Well no one probably got much sleep while the Rads were on.πŸ˜„ Thanks to everyone who came along for making us feel welcome to your part of the world.

Saturday night and the trip up the M4 to Penrith was a breeze thankfully. A great crowd was in attendance too,for our very first performance at the Jamison Hotel. What a rockin' joint! We loved it. A great reaction from a fired up audience made for a memorable debut. Hopefully we can get back to the Jamo again sometime next year.

Thank you to all you guys n gals who ventured out last night for supporting us ,and live music in the Penrith area. Top marks to you βœ”οΈβœ”οΈ .

Cheers from The Radiators.

Friday night and we are returning to Club Lemontree, a gig we did about a year ago! Could be longer ... Time flies when you're gigging constantly .. As we have been fortunately doing in recent times !

It was a real suprise packet of a venue too. Tucked away in Lemontree ( very pretty).. it's off the main drag into Nelson Bay, north of Newcastle.It was a cracker of a show and we remember it well for a great turnout and a surprisingly good reaction. Fingers crossed we can do it all again.

Saturday night sees us in beautiful Penrith once again at the Jamison Hotel. We can hardly remember a dud show in all the years we have been playing Penrith and surrounding districts . The area is chocka with mad and faithful Rads fans and we are really looking forward to gracing the stage at the "Jamo ".

It's the long weekend too , so it gives everyone and extra day to recover !! You beauty! Hopin' to catch ya out n a out then. Cheers and beers, the Rads.
