FREDERICK, Md. - EntSun -- The Rad Trads bring their singular take on rock n' roll mixing punk rock energy, horn drenched soul, and jazz precision with a lighthearted delivery to the Weinberg Center for the Arts on Thursday, April 2, 2020 at 7:30 PM.

A grant from the Tivoli Society has made this performance part of the pay-what-you-want Discovery Series. Suggested donation is $10 or pay-what-you-want at the door. Tickets can be purchased online at WeinbergCenter.org, by calling the box office at 301-600-2828, or in person at 20 West Patrick Street.

Meeting at New York University in 2012 as conservatory-trained instrumentalists and looking to play with NYC's best musicians, twin brothers John (Drums, Vocals) and Michael Fatum (Trumpet, Vocals), Michael Harlen (Bass, Vocals), Alden Harris-McCoy (Guitar, Vocals), and Patrick Sargent (Keys, Saxophone, Vocals) were, at that time, just "a bunch of buds looking to play the bars and drink for free," according to John Fatum. "The Rad Trads started off with a bastardized jazz repertoire that was modified, on stage, into whatever seemed to get the audience moving." The band quickly developed a loyal connection with its audiences. Michael Fatum agrees: "It felt amazing." Since then the band has taken nearly ten trips to Europe in addition to performances on four continents, in 15 countries, 41 states, and as of this writing, a string of dates in China. The diverse list of artists that the band has performed with in that time includes Lake Street Dive, Charles Bradley, Buddy Guy, Taj Mahal, and The Lone Bellow, among others. "We've loved every second of traveling and seeing the world," John Fatum says.
