Ed Volker’s Rattlers to play Chickie Wah Wah Saturday night, 7/29

PHOTO: KIM WELSHEd Volker, the Radiators’ keyboardist, vocalist, and principal songwriter is convening three of the four other members of the legendary New Orleans rock band to perform at Chickie Wah Wah. Joining him for an evening of classics from the Radiators’ extensive catalog will be lead guitarist and singer Dave Malone, bassist Reggie Scanlan, and drummer Frank Bua.

This will be an exceedingly rare and unprecedented performance since the four members of the group will be playing on an intimate stage for the first time in years. According to Volker, he put the group, dubbed the Rattlers, together because, “I wanna rock!”

Since the Radiators disbanded in June 2011, the group has reunited a handful of times including performing three yearly shows around their anniversary as a band and once at the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival. (The video below is actually from the Jazz Fest performance in 2014. —Ed.)

Volker has pursued his longtime solo career with a variety of other musicians, while the other members of the band have gone on to new projects. Dave Malone and Frank Bua, along with lead guitarist Camile Boudoin formed Raw Oyster Cult. Scanlan turned his side project, the New Orleans Suspects, into a full-time gig touring the country before he left the band last year.

Show time is 9 PM.
