"The band is back in town: Stage CD Party"

The rest of Radumus' members now have a home away from home.

The band’s drummer, Chaz Allen, is from Letts. Guitarist Casey Boness and bass player Johnny Slow, are both from Seattle. However, they now feel like Greensburg is their second home, and in particular, the Primetime grill holds a special place in their heart. They returned to Greensburg on Friday to host a CD release party.

“We feel like we’re part of the family,” Slow said.

The band first arrived in Greensburg in January to bring their convocation to local schools and record their two albums.

The band combines popular music with an lecture from Boness about preventing violence and dealing with personal rage.

In January, they also played a benefit concert at Primetime to help the owner deal with an unexpected medical emergency. The band played selected tracks from their new album at the party on Friday.

“Nobody has heard from us in four months, but they still showed up tonight,” Boness said.

A core of dedicated fans made it a memorable experience for Boness, Slow and Allen by singing along and talking to them after the show.

“Indiana has been very good to us,” Boness said. “But, we’re still homesick.”

The band will return to Seattle this summer to promote their albums and re-schedule the school tour. They had to cut things short this spring and canceled a lot of their scheduled convocations. The band is excited to start marketing their music in Seattle but will still be sad to leave Indiana.

“Even though the other guys aren’t from around here, I know they’re going to miss Greensburg as soon as we get back to Seattle,” Allen said.

Megan Smith is one of the dedicated fans who showed up at the CD release party on Friday. She’s a teaching assistant at Jennings County middle school and saw the band perform their anti-violence program. Smith said it was a very effective way of holding the students’ attention and getting their message across to them.

“The music gets the kids into what they’re saying,” she said. “It’s a symbiotic relationship.”

Smith said having a program like theirs is important for students of all ages.

“Talking about violence is a good thing for anybody at any age at any time in any place,” she said.

Although their special blend of rock ‘n roll isn’t exactly her thing, Smith said it’s difficult to not enjoy the show and have a good time.

“They have an aura of energy that radiates from them,” she said. “You can’t help but tap you foot and be drawn in.”

"Band hosts holiday benefit concert Saturday"

The pop-rock band Radumus hosts a benefit concert Saturday for the King County branch of the Toys for Tots Foundation.

The benefit — called Radumubash — is scheduled for 7-10 p.m. Saturday at The Last Supper Club, 124 S. Washington St., Seattle. Donate unwrapped toys and cash to the Toys for Tots Foundation at the show. The cost is $10 at the door or $5 with a toy to donate.

Radumus has local connections. Some band members reside in the Issaquah area. The band also played a schoolwide anti-bullying event at Liberty High School last year.

The band developed the One Big Team anti-bullying program.

“When Radumus and I visit public schools, we meet kids at all age levels in situations like that all the time and want to do whatever we can to pay it forward,” frontman Casey Boness said.

The holiday concert features material from the band’s upcoming “The Radumus EP.” Producer Justin Armstrong — a Dave Matthews Band, Death Cab for Cutie and Pete Towshend collaborator — recorded the album. The benefit also includes a rotating cast of guest artists and a silent auction.

Boness chose the Toys for Tots Foundation as the beneficiary because of a childhood experience.

“I was 6 years old and a guy in a Santa suit knocked on our door with a box full of food, and my mother burst into tears,” he recalled. “It was a very hard time for our family, we truly needed help, and the fact that someone recognized that and took action on our behalf was life changing.” - The Issaquah Press

The Radumus EP:
Being released fall 2012
Produced, engineered, mixed by Justin Armstrong
(Dave Matthews Band / Death Cab for Cutie)
Features the "Hope You Find a Way" single and music video

"Hope You Find a Way" single currently available on all major online retailers worldwide such as Itunes & Zune.



Since forming in May of 2007, Seattle based pop rock band RADUMUS has toured the west coast with their high energy brand of feel good pop rock and has opened for groups like John Mayer, Kings of Leon and Built to Spill.

The bands debut release, "The Radumus EP", was recorded by "Dave Matthews Band" and "Death Cab for Cutie" producer Justin Armstrong, comes out this year and features the single "Hope You Find a Way" and it's accompanying music video (Found on the EPK video tab) already available on Itunes and digitally worldwide.

The bands live show is a top-notch, world class experience that incorporates audience interaction, jaw dropping stage presence that wins over virtually any crowd and showcases their signature "on-the-fly" instrument switch during their song "Hope You Find a Way".

An excerpt from the “Greensburg Daily News” in Greensburg, Indiana discussing the bands live show reads; “They have an aura of energy that radiates from them. You can’t help but tap your foot and be drawn in”.

The band has hosted two bi-annual "Radumubash" benefit concerts (Toys for Tots / Japan Tsunami Relief) in Seattle which included live appearance and autographed rock memorabilia from members of Smash Mouth, Blues Traveler, Presidents of the USA, MXPX, Vendetta Red, and more.

The band also spearheaded the creation of the anti-bullying school assembly program "One Big Team", which has been implemented in select public schools throughout Washington since 2008.

The bands sound is like a "Death Cab" verse with a "Fall Out Boy" chorus and would be most accurately compared to groups like modern "Green Day", "All American Rejects" and "Neon Trees".
