Special to the Parade
Music legend Les Dudek will be in concert Saturday at the South Padre Island Hilton Garden Inn.
Dudek, whose contributions have influenced the history of rock and roll, will be performing at 7 p.m. September 15. His guitar and songwriting skills can be heard on many famous classic multi-platinum records. Such as:
• The haunting dual lead guitar on “Ramblin Man”, and acoustic guitar on “Jessica”, both from The Allman Brothers Band
• The smooth silky guitars on “Lido Shuffle”, “Jump Street”, and “Low Down” from Boz Scaggs
• “Fly Like An Eagle”, “The Book Of Dreams”, “Living In The 20th Century” and “Wide River”, (Capital Records), four of Steve Miller Band’s biggest albums
Dudek has been the guitar strength, and songwriter with, Stevie Nicks “Sister Honey”, (Rock A Little), Bobby Whitlock (Rock Your Socks Off), Dave Mason “Get It Right” (Old Crest On A New Wave), Dudek, Finnigan, & Krueger, or (DFK) “Just be Happy”, “Just Like The Weather”, and “The Stranger” and Cher “You Know It” and “Don’t Trust That Woman” (Black Rose).
Dudek rode his motorcycle in an acting part as “Bone”, and wrote music compositions for Peter Bogdanovich’s major motion picture, “Mask”.
Besides contributing his recognizable guitar and songwriting talents to other recording artists not to mention motion picture projects, Dudek is continuously pursuing his solo career. He signed as a solo artist with Columbia Records. Les is more; he also has a distinctive singing voice of his own.
Dudek scored two FM radio hits, “City Magic” and “Old Judge Jones”. He has released six critically acclaimed solo albums, Les Dudek, Say No More, Ghost Town Parade, Gypsy Ride, Deeper Shades Of Blues, and Freestyle. Be on the lookout for his soon to be released album, Delta Breeze.
Les Dudek has dedicated his life to music, as a guitarist, singer, composer, recording artist and producer. “My music is my legacy,” he said.
Dudek currently enjoys touring the world and bringing his music to a city near you.
