Let's give you a rundown of the players:
Dave Malone and Camile Baudoin
Dave and Camile are two of the founding members of New Orleans' legendary group The Radiators. Dave is the lead guitarist, vocalist and songwriter. Camile shares lead guitar duties with dave, and plays with or without the slide. Both musicians were born in New Orleans; Dave's life changed when he witnessed The Beatles play on the Ed Sullivan Show.
At that moment, he realized he wanted nothing more than to be a musician. For Camile, it was being invited on stage as a 10-12 year old kid to play with the Dufrene Brothers. "After that night, I pretty much knew what I was going to be doing for the rest of my life." After playing in several bands, Dave and fellow band mate Reggie Scanlan received a call one day to come down to a jam session with Camile, Ed Volker, and Frank Bua. After a few beers and an epic jam session, The
Radiators were born in January of 1978. Quickly becoming a staple of the New Orleans music scene, The Radiators became a national touring act and were known for their epically long live shows in which the energy never let down. They have done just about everything a touring band could
possibly want, including headlining the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival on several occasions. They have also shared the stage with BB King, The Allman Brothers, Little Feat, The Band, Taj Mahal, Dr. John, and Robert Cray, just to name a few.
Mark is a super-talented keyboardist and has played with members of the Neville Brothers, The Meters, Soulive, Rebirth Brass Band, and Bob Marley's band. He makes music for Discovery Networks, Comedy Hall of Fame and Animal Planet. His own projects include Circus Mind, OUTHOUSE,
as well as his most recent endeavor Falling Water, which recently came out with the album The Slow Down. Mark recently played at NYC's The Highline Ballroom with the Icons of Funk, ft. Leo Nocentelli (The Meters), Stanton Moore (Galactic), Fred Wesley (James Brown Band), and Bill "The Buddha" Dickens. It was a great night.
Dave is the bass player for the New Orleans funk outfit Johnny Sketch and the Dirty Notes. He is a classically trained musician and can play just about any style of music, at any given time, on any night of the week. He claims to be able to play any Beatles song including the b sides. In his spare time, he spends time teaching music to aspiring musicians.
Livingston Leo’s earliest memories are of driving around in the back of his mother’s Vista Cruiser, listening to 77 WABC from New York City, and singing every word to every song with his Mom. “As I grew up, I remembered all the words to all the oldies, all the top forty hits from the 60’s and 70’s. These songs made an intimate and lasting impression on me.”
Born Leonard Meranus in Brooklyn, Leo moved to Livingston, New Jersey in 1968, and considers himself a native son of New Jersey. His father is a 45 year veteran of the Madison Avenue advertising business and a fine painter, his mother is a prima donna of New Jersey community theater. Leo’s home was brimming with creativity. At 13 Leo picked up the guitar and became consumed with playing 12 bar blues, making funny rhymes and calling them songs. Although he became proficient enough to play open mics and college parties, he realized that it was his salesmanship that set him apart. So, Leo became a manager.
After a short stint with a nightclub show band, Leo met Popa Chubby at Manny’s Car Wash in New York City. “I thought he was, by far, the best entertainer in NYC. So, I asked him if I could book him some gigs. Surprisingly, he answered with a resounding ‘YES’.” That relationship lasted five hectic years, Chubby was signed by EPIC/Okeh, and Lenny and Popa Chubby toured the USA relentlessly. Leo moved on to manage Debbie Davies and others. And then for two wonderful years he was hired to travel with Los Lobos.
All this time Leo was listening, learning, writing and playing with some of America’s greatest musicians. Members of Los Lobos, and his good friend, drummer Rich Monica Jr., encouraged him, and he began to develop his own Livingston Leo persona, his own schtick. “When I looked at all the songs I had written, it became obvious where my passion was. I realized my strongest material was about BBQ’N and food, two of my favorite pastimes.” Leo began refining his work, and performing at better and better venues in New Jersey and New York. He recently co-wrote a song with Gov't Mule/Allman Brothers guitarist, Warren Haynes.
Livingston Leo has just completed his first full-length record, “BBQ’N With My Baby”.
With monthly gigs at Dinosaur BBQ and the Parkside Lounge, Livingston Leo’s band has built a strong and loyal following.
And there’s much more to come.
