Roddy Radiation of The Specials with The Scotch Bonnets and The Copacetics
Roddy Radiation of The Specials

Roddy Byers, better known as "Roddy Radiation" was the lead guitarist of The Specials, the innovative British band who pioneered the ska revivial craze of the late 1970s by combining the danceable ska and rocksteady beat with punk's energy and attitude. Roddy wrote numerous Specials classics such as "Concrete Jungle", "Hey Little Rich Girl", and "Rat Race", which helped to create the 2 Tone sound. Byers also has experience playing rockabilly in band such as The Tearjerkers and The Bonediggers. Currently, he leads The Skabilly Rebels, a band that mixes ska rhythms with rockabilly guitars. On his first solo tour of the eastern United States with The Scotch Bonnets, Roddy will be playing the songs he penned for The Specials, as well as songs from his solo projects and choice covers.

The Scotch Bonnets are the Baltimore/DC cats who always bring the good-love vibe with their funky reggae, rocksteady, and soul-flavored sound.
