The Cold will be inducted into the Louisiana Music Hall of Fame on Friday, October 5, 2018 at The Willow Inn (formerly Jimmy's Music Club) in New Orleans, Louisiana.
Hall of Fame President Mike Shepherd will induct the band which will be followed by a short set of songs by original Cold band members Vance DeGeneres, Chris Luckette, Kevin Radecker and Bert Smith. (Unfortunately, lead singer Barbara Menendez is unable to attend and will not be present.)
Jimmy Anselmo, namesake of the former Jimmy's Music Club, will speak about his time working with the band in the 1980s.
The cover charge for this fundraising event will be $10.00 and will benefit several charitable organizations including the Tulane Cancer Fund. Doors will open at 6pm with the event starting at 8pm.
The band members wish to thank Mike and Jimmy, plus all Cold fans who lobbied to make this happen (particularly Jackie Hood, who started the Cold Facebook page in 2008 and initially contacted the Hall of Fame to recommend The Cold.) Special thanks also to Allison Kullenburg and Johnny Brooks for starting this website in 1978.
