You are gonna dig this. Saw him here by the Bay, out in the Santa Cruz mountains only a few months ago, he is smoking right now. Did sterling versions of "Ramblin' Man", "Jessica" and "Old Judge Jones". Keyboard player is an ex- Stevie Ray Vaughan band member. Have fun. I think if Les keeps touring like this, he could build a nice little following for himself, maybe end up playing at some festivals...........to my knowledge he's been out of the public eye for a long time. Unfortunately us old hippies (I'm speaking for myself) are the only ones who know who he is. -Rob

dannyspell: I didn't know the answer to your question so I looked on www. lesdudek.com, but unfortunately he does not list his current band there (time for a web update, Les!). I think I would have recognized that name, Reese Wynans, as I've heard of him, so I am fairly certain that he is NOT the current keyboard player.

Tami (spygirl) is a fan and I am betting she would know the answer. Tami, y' out there?

Reese was SRv's keyboardist. Also the keyboardist in the first formation of the brothers in jacksonville. Great player. Greg replaced him.

I'm here - the player who was on the CA tour was Mike Kindred - he wrote "Cold Shot" - here's his bio:

Mike Kindred is no ordinary blues pianist. Over the past thirty odd years he has penned a blues classic, worked with blues legends Stevie Ray and Jimmie Vaughan, Lou Ann Barton, Lightnin' Hopkins, Big Mama Thornton and James Cotton. He's toured extensively with Johnny "Clyde" Copeland, Gatemouth Brown and Delbert McClinton. A stint with the incredible Joe Ely band of the early 80's saw him working across North America and Europe sharing stages with the likes of The Rolling Stones, Linda Ronstadt and The Clash. Through it all he has developed and maintained a unique, "personal" style that transcends traditional blues borders by incorporating elements of jazz, gospel and rock.

Buoyed by his father's encouragement to explore his "swing sensibility" while taking classical piano lessons as a youngster, Dallas native Kindred stretched out and discovered the many facets of jazz. He was particularly drawn to the piano of Oscar Peterson and Herbie Nichols, while at the same time listening to John Lee Hooker and Elmore James. And then there was Boogie-Woogie. "I've been playing Boogie-Woogie all my life, it seems", says Kindred. As a teenager he co-founded Krackerjack, a hard rocking blues band that featured the rhythm section of Tommy Shannon and Uncle John Turner. In Austin, that band went through a succession of guitarists including Stevie Ray Vaughan. That association led to Triple Threat with Stevie Ray, Lou Ann Barton and W.C. Clark and co-writing the song that would eventually, as he relates, "be my greatest success, my calling card, the song that has paid my bills for 13 years and made me a homeowner, "Cold Shot"."

I was lucky enough to have seen Les Dudek solo back in the mid 70s at the Bottom Line in NYC. I took my OLDER brother who actually turned me on to him when he bought the album with the yellow background, parrot on guitar cover. Living on the East Coast, never really got that much exposure to him after that unfortunately. That show was great though.

I guess Les liked my gig poster since he allowed it on his myspace page! Tami and I are the official unofficial gig poster team there, LOL...

I am so looking forward to this show!
