Last Week, Wines That Rock crew hit the Brooklyn Bowl for a benefit concert organized by our friends over at Headcount. HeadCount is a great organization that registers voters at concerts and works with musicians to promote participation in democracy. The event was one of the final shows by legendary artist The Rads – otherwise known as the New Orleans Radiators.
After 33 years, The Big Easy's premier jam band announced to ‘Fishheads’ it would end their epic run at this month's final performances. Final 3 shows (entitled ‘The Last Watusi‘) are scheduled for June 9, 10 & 11th at the world renowned Tipitinas in New Orleans.
FROM HJ: The Rads have been a huge part of my world of music; from my first day at Tulane Campus, going to see the Radiators at Tipatinas, or getting ready for MOMS ball, The Radiators have always been pure fun. From everyone at Wines That Rock, we wish the Rads Bon Voyage!

The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum unveiled Women Who Rock: Vision, Passion, Power on May 13, 2011 at a Gala event in Cleveland - and Wines That Rock was there. All 4 Wines That Rock wines were prominently poured and displayed at every bar at the event. We were also featured in the Silent Auction with a rare 'Collectors Set" of our 3L Bottles. A first class event! So excited that Wines That Rock could be part of this amazing event. Thanks Rock Hall!
Check the Video!
The exhibition will spotlight more than 60 artists and fill two entire floors of the museum. The exhibit will feature artifacts, video and listening stations, as well as a recording booth where visitors can film a short story or moment of inspiration related to women in rock. The exhibit will move through the rock and roll eras, weaving a powerful and engaging narrative that demonstrates how women have been the engines of creation and change in popular music, from the early years of the 20th Century to the present.
