There are three bands known as The Radiators. 1) The Radiators, also known as The New Orleans Radiators, are a rock band from New Orleans, Louisiana, who have combined the traditional musical styles of their native city with more mainstream rock and R&B influences to form a bouncy, funky variety of swamp-rock they call "fish head music".
Between the potency of his incredibly deep songwriting, his soulful vocals and his subtle, expert guitar work, New Orleans’ Anders Osborne is a true musical treasure. He is among the most original and visionary musicians writing and performing today. OffBeat magazine named Osborne as the Crescent City’s Best Roots Rock Artist and declared him the city’s Best Guitarist for two years straight.
Since its inception in 2001, Johnny Sketch & The Dirty Notes (JSDN) has gained a loyal following in a competitive New Orleans music scene. Their unique FUNK/ROCK style blends a hard driving rhythm section reminiscent of the Radiators' swamp funk added to the punchy horns of Tower Of Power.
Just imagine the chops it takes to be voted the funkiest act in the world's funkiest town. Out of the sweat-drenched, hard-partying, all-night mayhem of New Orleans comes Papa Grows Funk, winners of OffBeat magazine's Funkiest Band award for three years running.
Sol Driven Train’s music weaves through genres like images in a Tom Robbins paragraph. The band’s sonic schizophrenia absorbs songwriting influences like John Prine and Paul Simon, and afro-caribbean rhythmic explorations, into honest songs of life, love, loss, and long johns.
BIG SAM'S FUNKY NATION: Presiding over his Funky Nation is Big Sam, formerly the trombonist for the Dirty Dozen Brass Band, who blows the funk out of his trombone and refuses to let the audience sit still.
Max Creek is a jam band that started in the seventies and is still going strong. They play style probably most similar to the Grateful Dead, however they have many other influences and just an overall great sound.
