What since we saw you last, the four members of Rudy have been diligently working on finishing the Taste the Love record and we can tell you this: it is gonna rock your world! Rudy's third platter is a tour de force of funk, rock and humor, frosted in the Rudy wit you know and love but deep enough to groove you a new sphincter. From the anthem "Boogie Down" all the way to the title cut, this collection of songs will lift any party to the next level. We'll keep you posted on its progress and see you soon on the Taste the Love tour! More info on the SHOWS page.

What a wild time we had at our Los Angeles show! Thanks to all who came out and to Dorado for sharing the good times- we are planning our summer tour dates and hope to see you somewhere out there! Keep in touch and spread the love! xo~ RUDY
February 21, 2011
Awaiting the arrival of Rey Diaz who is on a long journey from Peace River to Santa Monica, where we will join up with brother Johnny Gobel to unite in the name of Rudy! Our Wednesday night gig at Molly Malone's in Hollywood is going to be a fun and raucus gathering of booty-bumping, groin-grinding hispters, featuring not just a full set of Rudy faves but an opening set by Johnny's groovy Portland band Dorado! We will sadly be missing our brother Howard on the drums, as his penis enlargement surgery went slightly awry and left him, well, girthier than planned. Until the swelling goes down, the airlines will charge him for an extra seat, even though he tried to convince them that it was "carry on". Then the rep thought he said "carrion" and that he had intended of bringing raw meat on the plane, which is kinda sorta correct... anyhow, you get the picture. Luckily, the swelling will go down in time for the release of our long-awaited third studio album "Taste the Love" and we'll be setting up some big fat Rudy shows to celebrate! For this one gig, we've tapped our buddy Ryan Brown for the drum seat and he's been practicing his clitoral paradiddles to nail that "Howard feel". And the drums too! See you soon funk fans~ 2011 is just getting started and we're ramping up the good times! PS- don't forget, we've repressed the classic "Sexy" CD and it's available now right HERE!
August 20, 2010 ....Like 4/20 only Four Months Later
It has been a long time since we last updated our site and did anything official, which is why we are so glad to be updating our site with something official! Rudy is back in action with a brand new album in the works and a gig around Halloween down in our old stomping grounds in South Florida. Rudy is booked Friday October 29th at Tobacco Road for three magical sets of musical mayhem! We have also been recording our long-awaited third studio album Taste the Love which will be available as soon as we can cram all this fantastic funk onto one CD! There are brand new songs as well as official versions of some of our live crowd favorites such as "Doin' Time," "The Shit," "Howard's High," "Stick It" and a little "Leche Caliente" for those with fine taste. We know that Booty and Sexy both raised the bar to a higher level of funkiness, which is why we are making sure this new record stands up to your own high standards of getting all funked up!
More soon~ you can check out our blog at http://rudybooty.wordpress.com/ or our myspace page at http://myspace.com/rudymusic or just come on back here and see what's up! See you soon~ get ready to RUDY!

What's up, you hornswoggling corndogging bjorn-borgling turd-burgling
pickle-sniffing bonesmugglers! How's the funky trunk fulla junk
known as your rudified Booty these days? Are ya missing the insidiously
lascivious jams and ass-grinding grooves of your favorite band Rudy?
Well, we miss you too- we miss the way you grind your behind like
peanut butter, the way you squat til we can see sunlight and they
way you do the rump-shaking earth-quaking knee-shaking bump with
your humplumpers! Ok, we admit- we made that last word up. However,
if you can give us a good enough definition of a "humplumper"
we'll send you a special surprise. Unlike last years surprise, this
will not be Rey's used underwear. Get your sniff on elsewhere! Do
console yourself with some damn fine music and goods from RUDY,
avaialable now on the MERCH
page~ and have a great day~! See you on the spring "Assmasterblaster"
Thank you all so much for the outpouring of love at our Florida
shows in November! The crowds treated us great, and we threw it
down old school style. Extra thanks to Dar for helping coordinate,
book and promote, and extra thanks to Frank Ward for sitting in
and bringin the funk. We'll post pictures soon and hope you'll keep
in touch and keep rockin the RUDY!

Funky fans everywhere rejoice~ RUDY is back! After a long hibernation
capped by a celebratory 4-20 holiday week, RUDY answered the Bat
Call to reunite and rock out down in sunny Florida. Conga player
Rey Diaz rolled in from NASA, where he is doing experiments on the
effects of spaceflight on flan. Bassist Johnny Gobel popped up with
a cup of expresso and, though he refused to tell us where he's been,
he smelled a lot like chicken. Drummer Howard Goldberg arrived after
a grueling tour of duty fixing deep wedgies on South Beach, and
we can't seem to get him to stop smiling. And singer/keyboard player
Robbie Gennet jetted in from California where he was giving private
wax jobs to Disney characters. The four members of Rudy passed the
peace pipe and called Delicious Dar, who promptly booked us into
some of the finer venues in South Florida this Spring. All the info
is on the SHOWS
page, and if you are anywhere on the continent, you NEED to be there!
After all, RUDY is there for you~ and we still remember all the
love you're hiding in your fine Pooter underpants! So get ready
to blast off and wet yourself with sweat~ RUDY'S COMING!

Well, here it is weeks later, and we're just coming out from our
beds! The Bootyquake was outta control, and if you were there, you
know! Three slamming sets of bumping funk plus a lot of asses and
you've got yourself a Rudy party! Highlights included Joe Klucar's
fabulous turn on the trombone, plus Frank getting onstage and ripping
even with the flu. Great to see everyone dancing and having such
a good time. Pictures coming soon! In the meantime, we're all working
hard to make the next stage of Rudy a special one. Now go out and
funk, you little devil!~ Rudy's got your ass covered...

Hey bootyfans~ after a sweltering summer with no action, the oiled
and pumped musical machine of Rudy is playing a special show in
September featuring Famous Frank Ward of the Knucklebusters on the
electric guitar. The show is billed accordingly as The Rudybusters,
and we'll be jamming all night long, oiling and boiling the hundreds
of booties in attendance. Well worth the drive! Check out more details
Yo bro! Howzit goin'? Check it out~ the RUDY song
"Oil it Boil It" is on the soundtrack
of "Cancun: The Reality Movie", which
is in theaters now! And you know what that means~ Rey "Cornigula"
Diaz is finally FAMOUS! Ladies, make a
double line at his bedroom door, and please don't hold yourself
back from writing those torrid and lascivious love letters to Rey
For those unfortunates who are immune to Rey's brimming libido,
towards the end of the movie, there is a very sexy shower scene
and you will hear the orgasmic music of RUDY, no
lie. That is when you will hear women in the theater begin to moan
at the sound of Rey's congas washing over them like someone gave
Spanish Fly to the lady in the Calgon commercial. REY- TAKE ME AWAY!!!
AY QUE RICO!!! DAME LAS FRUTAS DE LAS PUTAS!!!! etc. yatta yatta
So, those who are up
for the Diaz Challenge, ya might wanna jump up & run out to
your local multiplexer and plex down $8.50 for a date with Rey...
and RUDY! We'll even butter your popcorn! Just watch your popcornhole....
Wow- well, where do we start? The Suwannee Bound fest was a great
success, and we had a fantastic time shaking booty after booty across
the campground. We were all impressed by the String Cheese Incident
(especially their hot cover of "Jungle Boogie"!) and Live
Oak was certainly beautiful. We have never seen so many fireflies
in one spot! Our shows down south were fabulous~ we packed em in
to Rosey Baby and laid down some serious jams- including a brand
new song called "Stick It". Famous Frank Ward from the
Knucklebusters sat in and a good time was had by all. The Friday
night show up at Nat's Den in Boynton was a thrill ride- bikers
galore, many ladies and gents groovin up the dancefloor, and the
Road Dog presiding over it all! I think we played every song we
knew that night. Thanks to the Road Dog, Famous Frank, Delicious
Dar, and all our wonderful friends and fans. You made it special
for us, and we were happy to spread the love. As of right now, we
are planning our next move, so stay tuned and keep on rockin! Much
love to ya.
Hey there- so you may notice some changes around here as we have
redone our website to make it a little more groovy in case you came
by (and we're glad you did!) If you haven't been to see our new
t-shirts yet, click on over~ we have some outrageous new designs
that will bear you well into the world! We're gearing up for the
420 fest, and have been getting tons of emails from people who are
coming- to you, we say GET READY TO PARTY! Rudy's comin, and your
ass is ours. See you soon....
Well bootyfans, your favorite granny award winning band RUDY is
ramping up for some exciting shows! Howard, Rey, Robbie & Johnny
will unite to lay down the bootyfunk all over Florida this spring,
and we hope you'll shake your ass to our bitchin' sounds. After
some warm up shows, RUDY will be performing at the 420 festival
in Live Oak, FL opening for the String Cheese Incident & a host
of amazing jam bands. Rudy will take the stage Sunday morning, 4/20,
and begin the day- as Geddy Lee would say- with a friendly voice,
and a hipthrust to ya! The Big Booty Funky Brunch (not to be confused
with Marky Mark and the Funky Bunch) will commence at 11am for a
solid hour of unadulterated, undiluted, unleashed and universally
undulated Rudy to unite the masses into a- dare we say- orgy of
groove? Witness yourself the awesome power of ten thousand booties
shaking, feel the wind from the spinning hula hoops, and come camp
out at SUWANNEE
BOUND! See you there!

Check out the new review of SEXY in KEYBOARD MAGAZINE~ click HERE!
JAN 13, 2003
Welcome to 2003, bootyfans- we hope you got everything you wanted
for your holiday present melee and gift exchanging ritual. If in
the process of your rampant patriotic consumerism, you happened
to pick up a highly exciting Rudy CD or a pair of Pooter Panties
and a tee shirt, we’d like to say thank you very much! And
don’t forget- after you return all those unwanted presents
(such as the underpants with a built in Salad Shooter that I got
from Rey) you can spend your fun money on completing your Rudy collection
and turning your friends on to some damn sexy music. Our holidays
were spent visiting family, though Rey had a long trip to Mars (we’re
kidding Rey!) and we managed to throw an underground orgy of groove
at Chez Pooter on Jan. 1st in honor of our dedicated hometown crew,
and some of our lost soldiers. Twisted sister Abby G rocked the
crowd with brother Robbie as “The Red Stripes,” introducing
some headbanging Slunt music to the ravenous crowd. Following that,
Rudy took the stage to back Abby on Black Sabbath’s “Sweet
Leaf” and blew the roof off the heezie!! It was squizzle dizzle,
my nizzle! So that brings us to 2003, and, well, we don’t
know what the hell is going on in the world. War? Does it really
have to come to this? Can’t we all… well, just get along?
Would it be so bad if everyone dropped their differences, grabbed
hands, and gleefully sang in a loud and boisterous voice “WHAT
ARE YOU GONNA DO WITH ALL THE LOVE YOU’RE HIDING IN YOUR UNDERPANTS!!?!!”
Well, we can still dream. And we’re pretty optimistic, even
though things are getting pretty scary out there. Rudy stands behind
love as a solution to all the worlds’ problems, and hopes
that love will prevail in the end. Our motto: MAKE LOVE, NOT WAR!
Love is contagious, love loves to be given and received, love is
always in demand, always needed, always necessary. Share it, spread
it, roll in it and rub on it- love is free and unlimited. They say
love conquers all, but who are “they”? They are we,
and love is strong. So into the great unknown we go, with love at
our side, love in our hearts… hey, let’s face it, our
pants are practically bursting with love! We want to wish you safe
passage through 2003, and hope to rock your ass sometime soon. Until
then, keep in touch, pick up some CD’s and tees, and spread
the love. It’s the right thing to do.See you soon!
