The RT’s at the Hopewell Theater
September 22, 2022 • 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm
Brooklyn-based five-piece The RT’s are known for their eclectic take on rock n’ roll, which mixes punk rock energy, horn drenched soul, and precise musicianship with a lighthearted, but sincere delivery. It’s a sound that has come sharply into focus on the band’s latest release, The RT’s.
Producer Chris Peck says in a world where cynicism and cleverness litter the musical landscape, The RT’s offer a refreshing antidote. At a time when rock-and-roll music has little representation in pop, they offer a kind of upbeat swagger. Their unique brand of sincere, lighthearted, and unpretentious music is just what the doctor ordered.
They say it takes nearly a decade for a wine to mature. The same could be said for The RT’s (formerly The Rad Trads). If you caught their brand of raucous, beer-soaked trad jazz and blues in the early days, you’ll see the same ingredients (boisterous horns, impassioned vocals, and a driving groove) but a new flavor, and the kind of maturity and subtlety that only comes with time.
