The Cold was 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 inducted the band which was 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 was unable to attend.)
Jimmy Anselmo, namesake of the former Jimmy's Music Club, spoke about his time working with the band in the 1980s.
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 1998.
