"Radi8ors turn up the heat - An outstanding set of new songs written by Dr Rob with a classic or two thrown in to round off the set. Superb drumming... tight bass, Eda on vocals and Rob on lead guitar all adding up to a great indie and rock sound. Songs to make you think, music to make you smile, and a thumping rendition of Lou Reed 's "Waiting for My Man"... what more could you ask for !" - J. Jones
"An ace gig. Thanks for the great wall of sound. Loved it." - Jo Tuffs
"Half Turkish, half French, but a Liverpuddlian through and through, [Eda's] vivacious personality and stage presence are electrifying." - Dave Thompson
"Not just the weather!!! - the band is steaming!!" - T. Bailey
"What a band ! What a night !" - Ann Carrington
Sometimes survival isn't enough and you've gotta to raise your head above the parapet of the mundane. The death of a loved one or an icon can do just that and then as you succeed in this new, creative venture, as James Brown said, you feel good and thats a feeling you just can't beat.
DR ROB AND THE RADI8ORS WANNA SHARE THAT FEELING WITH YOU.
Jose Josette : Drums
At the age of two, Yusef Islam’s percussionist and bassist Larry Steele in the 70’s gave little Jose a pair of drumsticks. He began to beat it against cooking pots and heard sounds that excited him to further discover rhythms that would set up and write his life’s destiny. His foundation came from home, listening to all types of music from Stevie Wonder to Santana. His first ever performance was at age 7 with his father’s band “Rhythm Factory” that supported Ruby Turner at the Cambridge University; he played a song entitled Teddy Bear’s Picnic and had earned him a rose and a five pound note from a graduate he recalls. At the tender age of 11 Jose attended the Royal College of Music for juniors; he received a bursary from his secondary school ‘Hackney Free and Parochial’. At age 12 he met and played with world-class musicians such as: Michael Jackson, Stevie Wonder, George Harrison, Eric Clapton, Mike Oldfield, Whitney Houston, David Foster, and Greg Phillinganes. Through Jose’s musical journey he has played live drums/percussion and recorded music for the likes of Axelle Red, Jamie Scott, Ms Dynamite, Craig David, Michael Boothman, The Do, Lynden David Hall, Sister Sledge, Odyssey, Caron Wheeler, Olodum, Hinda Hicks, De La Soul, Amy Newton, Mother Earth, Jean Carne, Tom Browne, Watts Prophet, The Lighthouse Family, Niki Yeoh's Infinitum, Byron Wallen's Sound Advice, The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, HKB FiNN, Billy Ocean, Junior Giscombe, Roachford, Amy Winehouse, Jnay, Terri Walker, Jay Sean, Loose Ends, Tyler James, Kezia Jones, Elliot Randall, Shola Ama, Omar, Don-e, Beverly Knight, Frank McCombe, Nona Hendryx, Joyce Sims, Melba Moore, Glenn Jones, and Ken Boothe.
