Dave Rude Band Featuring Tesla's Guitarist To Open For Pearl, Nashville Pussy

After a highly successful Midwestern USA tour, the Dave Rude Band, featuring Tesla's guitarist Dave Rude, returns home to San Francisco to perform live on their home turf. DRB has landed the highly coveted support slots for two headlining bands - Pearl (featuring Meatloaf's daughter Pearl Aday and Anthrax guitarist Scott Ian) and popular rock band Nashville Pussy. The 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 Tesla 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.

Bassist, Marco Guzman, moved to the US from Peru to pursue a career in rock'n'roll and brings a distinctly Latin groove to his fuzzed-out, Aerosmith-cum-Rage Against The Machine-style basslines. And drummer Josh Schmidt started out touring and recording in punk bands in the SF Bay Area before branching out into jazz and Latin rhythms around the time he joined DRB--always giving the band a unique, pounding, yet danceable groove. Together the power trio create a powerful sound both onstage and on record that is truly their own.
