of Rudy Strukoff, known around the globe as ‘Rude Dog,’ leader of The Rhythm Revue and Show Band. From the roots of Robert Johnson and the boogie of John Lee Hooker, to the smooth grooves of Albert King, Rude and his band put on a show that melds the work of the masters with modern funk to come up with their unique brand of ‘Funk-a-fied Rhythm & Blues.’

Having recently relocated to Newport Beach after a 2 year engagement at The Arts Factory in Las Vegas, where Rude not only performed weekly, but opened a music school dedicated to teaching guitar, vocals and songwriting to students young and old. Now in Orange County, Rude is excited to get a new band together and perform, in addition to starting a new school for guitar.

Prior to the stint in Vegas, Rude spent the last several years working the east coast circuit from points in and around Baltimore and D.C. touring extensively since 1998. Rude has experience playing in a band or as part of a solo or duo act. Having just moved to the area, Rude is available for solo bookings for his blues and classic rock singer/songwriter show. Find

You can get CD's or download MP3's of Rude's music so be sure to check out the ‘CD Releases’ page and get some great blues music for your CD player or iPod. Rude released his first CD in 2001 and has now several CD’s available to purchase or download on all the major servers, iTunes, Amazon, Napster, etc.

Rudy is also available for guitar lessons for beginning guitar students, as well as the seasoned player who may want to brush-up on technique or learn special Travis picking or alternative tunings and the slide guitar. You can get more info about guitar lessons on the 'Guitar Lessons' page.
