The Rad Trads were formed in New York City in the spring of 2012 while the boys were attending New York University. Active members of the jazz community in New York, The Rad Trads came together with the intention of fusing their diverse interests in jazz, blues, and soul music into a sound that would reflect the unique journey of American music from its roots in New Orleans and various folk traditions up through the present day. Simultaneously, The Rad Trads felt that this music could and should be presented to a wider audience in a contemporary context, while not sacrificing tradition. The result is the eight piece brass band soul explosion that defies genre descriptions.
