  • The Rad Trads

The New Royals (Cincinnati) with The Rad Trads (NYC) live at Urban Artifact on Friday, May 27th!


"The New Royals are Cincinnati’s emergent deep funk band, channeling late 60s/early 70s funk 45s with all the flash and flare of Lyn Collins and the JB’s peppered with blues and jazz influences. The nine-piece band formed in early 2015 and plays high-octane shows around the Queen City, still ripe with reverence as the crucible of funk nearly half a century ago. They will tour this summer and hit the studio in late 2016 to record their first full-length LP."

"Based in New York City, 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, with influences ranging from early jazz to New Orleans brass band, R&B, the Chicago and delta blues, and rock & roll. Featuring three powerful horns, a driving rhythm section, and three captivating lead vocalists, The Rad Trads consistently win over audiences with their relentless energy, charisma, and enthusiasm."
