Roots Rock from New Orleans
Dave Malone (of the The Radiators) & Tommy Malone (of The Subdudes)
Bringing together the similar but fantastically different worlds of two of the finest New Orleans rock bands today – The Radiators and The Subdudes – is a brand new collaboration. Turns out, the two are practically family– sharing a pair of Cajun brothers who just can’t go at it alone anymore. Prone to heavy N’Orleans jam sessions, the brothers’ new outfit features brand new material that they wrote together. And judging by their country rock, Zydeco, and roots rock mixture, this will be a party you don’t want to miss.
Dave Malone is best known as the guitarist/vocalist of The Radiators from New Orleans, Louisiana. The Radiators, still with the original five members, have been bringing their New Orleans-inspired music to the rest of the world for nearly 30 years. The Rads have released more than a dozen albums and have played thousands of shows. They maintain a strong, loyal fan base and are on the road relentlessly.
On stage, standing front and center, Tommy Malone exudes a laid-back, down-to-earth style that epitomizes the Subdudes. But his self-assured exterior masks a songwriter who mines heartache and elation, the surreal and the everyday, and who crafts the experiences into instantly memorable tunes. As the subdudes’ lead guitarist, he punctuates soulful, heart-felt vocals with playing that is at turns joyful, incendiary, melancholic. He’s been writing and playing music for more than three decades – 15 years off and on with the subdudes, and another decade and half before that with many of the same guys.
