The Rad Trads

The Rad Trads have quickly gained a reputation as one of New York’s most entertaining live acts. They bring their love of the game to a diverse style of soulful American music. Featuring three powerful horns, a driving rhythm section, and four captivating lead vocalists, they go from soul to jazz, from swing to rock with a relentless energy, that make them resemble The Band when their drummer John Fatum takes the place of the lead vocalist, putting himself in Levon Helm´s shoes, or New Orleans Jazz Band when they become a brass band possessed by the Mississippi Delta.

They´ve headlined Atlanta Jazz, Rochester Jazz, Columbus Jazz & Ribs Festival, and the Russian River Jazz & Blues festival. They´ve opened for Tom Jones, Charles Bradley, Taj Mahal, Buddy Guy and The Lone Bellow, and they´ve toured around Europe, Malaysia and the United States. Members of The Rad Trads continue to perform with top groups such as Lee Fields & The Expressions or St. Paul & The Broken Bones. Fun and a tireless rhythm are guaranteed.
