There was a big crowd at Dee Why RSL on Friday and they had a double helping of 80's music with Spy v Spy kicking things off. So many great songs and the boys were on fire. Cliffy, the Spys original drummer, made a suprise one- off return as well and went really well. We had our work cut out for us coming on after them, but we managed to hold our own and ended up with a top reception from the happy crowd. Thanks heaps you good people of the northern beaches for your encouragement and support on the night.
Saturday saw the band back at Wenty Leagues ,and a pretty good crowd also in attendance at this great venue. ( the car park is a bit of a war zone though at the moment !😄) Another great band was again on before us as well . Sydney outfit Love Child kept the audience well entertained with a top set indeed. These guys are great players and have a repotoire that definitely resonates with a Rads audience. Try and catch them if they are playing anywhere near you. Bloody good band! We had a top night. The stage sounded good and we were firing on all cylinders. We had a lot of fun and so did the crowd. Very appreciative and generous with their applause.
Thanks to everyone for coming out and making the Rads a part of your weekend .
Love ya ! And thanks Ruth Corcoran for sharing the photos! 😁
Cheers from the Radiators.👍 ... See MoreSee Less
First Rad's gig since the eighties, I think. Can't be that long ago surely. I missed Fess, the keyboards and that epic sound reinforcement but you guys have lost nothing on stage. I stood up the back almost with a tear in my eye it had been so damn long. Too long.1 week ago · 1
***WHERE ARE THE RADS THIS WEEKEND?***
Tomorrow night the Rads are back on the northern beaches of Sydney with a show at Dee Why RSL Club Also appearing with us are local favourites Spy v Spy, so it's gonna be a great night for everyone and we are really looking forward to what is invariably a fun gig at this fantastic venue.
Saturday night we are rapt to be back at the famous and fabulous Wenty Leagues in Wentworthville. We have had some top nights there over the years and rarely had anything but a full house and a rockin' crowd, so naturally our fingers are crossed that we can do it all again.
Hope to see our supporters from North and West, out & about this weekend for some live music . It"ll be lonely without you!😄
cheers & beers, the Rads. ... See MoreSee Less

The Australia Day long weekend kicked off in fine style for us on Thursday night in the "Shire" at the Caringbah Inn. It was a full house that greeted us once again at this rockin' venue. There was ( or is it were ?)😄 wall to wall people, out to start the party early and they certainly got behind the Rads on the night! So many smiling faces made it clear we were hitting the mark. Thanks to everyone for the great welcome, great reaction , and the many compliments and back slapping afforded the band after the show. A memorable night indeed !
The next night and it was our official Oz Day gig at the Colyton Hotel in western Sydney and we thought we couldn't possibly top the previous night's show. We thought everyone would be buggered from a day of BBQ-ing and self-lubricating in the bloody hot weather that day. We needn't have been so apprehensive, it was another full house and the big crowd were in fine form indeed! What a ripper night ... everybody was hell-bent on havin' a great time and it was such a pleasure to play such a fun gig. Even though it was another muggy stinkin' hot night ( when will this heatwave end😡??) the audience were cool and in high spirits . Thanks to all you guys n gals for making The Rads a part of your Australia Day celebrations. Much appreciated!
Saturday night had us travelling into the big smoke for the third and final show of the weekend. Leadbellys in Newtown is a totally funky and very hip venue . A small but very cute stage but with a big sound. A good crowd had turned up too. It wasn't massive but comfortable, and we were stoked that anyone had the energy to get out and about after the preceding big day. Our support band, Toni & the Stonehearts kicked off the night in fine style and got the place pumping! What a great band.. and Christ,..that girl can sing !! We were made to feel most welcome and we thank everyone for their generous applause and encouragement throughout the night. There was a huge shoutout too for an encore but we were told we couldn't comply.. ( had to finish strictly at 11pm )due to council restrictions over noise complaints etc. We're so sorry we couldn't come back out, we would have loved too because you certainly deserved one. We will start earlier next time and squeeze one in if prompted .. and if we get to be booked back at Leadbelly's.
A very satisfying weekend for us. Many many thanks again to all who came along to our shows ... bloody excellent work (and thanks Duanne Morgan, Nycole Jarrett and Sharon Drake for sharing the love with your photos across the weekend) 👍😄 ... See MoreSee Less
The second leg of our "Rock n Shoal tour" last night was a blast. The scene was Shoal Bay Country Club on the coast about 45 minutes north of Newcastle. The area was pumping with holiday makers, people everywhere! We hoped that this vibe would extend to our gig ..and we were not disappointed.
The venue was packed ! A 1000 punters through the door ensured it was a night to remember. It was bloody hot as well and the band were dripping sweat from very early in the set. Why even the ever cool Brent was slightly moistened !! The massive crowd were in party mode and did well to stay with us as the temperature rose on what was a bloody hot day anyway.
Thanks to the management for their hospitality ..( maybe crank the air up a bit more next time😄) and a big thanks to everyone who came along for some live music and for making us a part of your holiday festivities..love your work!
We were bushed after the show, but happy that we had pulled such a huge crowd. It's a great venue, recently reno-ed and very stylish. Hope we can get up that way again in the not too distant future.
Cheers , The Rads ... See MoreSee Less
