Dave Rude Band's unabashed, uncompromising, highly melodic hard rock sound is both unique and instantly recognizable--a modern take on the classic rock influences the band grew up on. In 2005 Dave Rude decided to start a solo project as a singer/guitarist, but as soon as he hooked up with bassist Marco Guzman and drummer Josh Schmidt, things gelled so well that it quickly solidified into a permanent band. Some may recognize lead singer/guitarist, Dave Rude, as multi-platinum rock band Tesla's newest guitar hero. When they randomly came across the Dave Rude Band MYSPACE page, they were so impressed they offered him the job in early '06 and he is still a member today. Together the power trio create a powerful sound both onstage and on record that is truly their own. "Carry Me Home" is the band's brand new CD and its sound has been described as Shinedown doing shots with Buckcherry at a Kings Of Leon afterparty.
