*The Rad Trads have quickly gained a reputation as one of New York’s most entertaining live acts performing a diverse style of soulful American music. Featuring powerful horns, a driving rhythm section, and four captivating lead vocalists, The Rad Trads have headlined the Atlanta, Rochester, Columbus and Russian River Jazz & Blues Festivals, opened for Charles Bradley, Tom Jones, Taj Mahal, Buddy Guy, Con Brio, The Lonely Bellow and toured across Europe (five times!), Malaysia and the United States. Members of The Rad Trads continue to perform with top groups such as Lee Fields & The Expressions, Jon Batiste & Stay Human and have performed or recorded with artists such as St. Paul & The Broken Bones, Deer Tick, Lenny Pickett, Red Baraat & more.
*Formed in Columbus Ohio in 2012, Forest and The Evergreens have been honing a smooth, spirited sound that melds Soul, Funk, R&B, Rock, and Blues into an at-times swaying and other-times punching end result they’ve dubbed “Young Funk.” The quintet launched its first independent release, Young Funk EP, in June of 2014. The group has been recognized as a “Band To Watch” by multiple media outlets in Ohio, has played with bands such as Kendrick Lamar, Twenty One Pilots, The Districts, The Lumineers, Civil Twilight, and has performed at many notable festivals including The #Number Fest, Breakaway Festival, Midpoint Music Festival, Promowest Fest, CD102.5 Summer Fest.
Forest and The Evergreens are constantly writing. Expect many releases and more shows in 2017.
