Blog Posts from the Pudenski Brothers

Hi all

It's as busy as ever down at Pudenski Towers with more dates added for outdoor Christmas shows in Poole and Bourneouth and some more private parties coming in this side of New Year. I might be able to take a breather in early 2022 but for now it's full on and fun! Love and peace to all...

We're coming to the end of another very strange year...I never thought that Nov would be so busy, but it is!

Most bookings are still with the Pudenski Bros - anything from small bars to royal weddings! I also play solo here and there, generally for a more chilled out vibe at places like Mokobo, the Cliff House Hotel and my special Mondays for overseas students. The 79 are an awesome electric band with forthcoming bookings at Poole Hill Brewery, the Cellar Bar and the Nelson in Poole Quay. As well as this I am with the Tours (music) and you can see this cult band at the King Charles in November and December before we aim at recording an album in the New Year. 2022 may well bring another project as well so watch this space...

As always, peace and love to all of you!

Hi all

It's been a busy time and looks to be continuing that way...we seem to be making friends in many many places!

I'm just about to update the diary with some dates in All Hail Ale in the Westbourne/ Triangle area, several private events in Dorset, Hampshire and Oxfordshire, and some solo bookings. In addition to the Pudenski Bros there are also some dates for the electric 4-piece The 79.

So things are going pretty well at the moment but we're never too busy to chat and discuss future bookings.

Hoping for some exciting news soon so watch this space...Peace and love to all!


Hi all

Summer's well underway and we're making a lot of friends!

Last weekend was Shake n Stir in Southbourne - always a great event and we have been getting a lot of local love back from that, both as the Puds and the 79. More events are coming in fast alongside regular gigs...

At the Wight Bear on Tuesdays it has been bonkers lately, so much that we now have support acts from 7-7:45 before we tackle your requests. So far we have had Sean Harding, Plastic Jeezus and two-thirds of Murphy's Lore. Coming soon - Scarlett Bow, Dave Dawson and others.

Lots of photos and vids to come - in the meantime, thanks for all your support!

Hi again - I've updated the gig list and it seems we are in for a busy time!

We did a couple of great garden parties last week, spreading the joy in lovely settings in the New Forest and West Moors...

There are developments at the Wight Bear on Tuesdays - we now have support acts! They cover 7pm - 7:45ish until we take over with a request show. We welcomed the awesomely amusing Plastic Jeezus last week. Soon we have two-thirds of Murphy's Lore (authentic beautiful folky stuff) joining us, and the brilliant Scarlett Bow will be bringing her cabaret/ comedy/ accordion/ amazing vocals in a few weeks' time. In between special guests, our regular special guest is the excellent Sean Harding with his acoustic and soulful treatements of popular covers (and the occasional original). It's really nice to mix it up with some great other local musos so make sure you get there early so as not to miss these acts!

Hi all. We're continuing to rock the Wight Bear every Tuesday and hopefully from the 20 July you won't even have to book!

Not sure if you are aware of this but those of you who enjoy listening to the vibrant sound of Bournemouth Band The Pudenski Brothers can catch up with Martin at the virtual Wight Bear on Tuesday Evenings at 07:30. The Wight Bear through Jodie one of the staff is hosting a virtual pub with live music from Martin from his musical attic. To go along to the virtual gig you need to have access to Zoom. Zoom can be run on mobile phones, tablets and computers and gives you a way of socialising like we did pre Covid-19 in the comfort of your own home. If you had been at the bear on Tuesday you would have seen a shameless plug for Google Reviews as well

Bournemouth Band The Pudenski Brothers

Welcome to the Pudenski Brothers website, one of the live party bands for hire on the South Coast playing gigs with high energy in the music scene around the Bournemouth, Poole and Christchurch area for your enjoyment and memories. If you are looking for an 80s musician or band and can get out to one of the venues we play or check availability on our list of gigs we will make sure you get the famous Pudenski Brothers welcome. We are a totally live band who don't use backing tracks as our band members guitarist and vocalist Martin and percussionist Craig play acoustic instruments and sing to classic 1980s songs. 

Shake and Stir Southbourne

Bournemouth Band, the Pudenski Brothers took to the introducing stage for The Sixth Shake and Stir Vintage Festival 2018 and what a beautifully warm and festive day that was helped by a mouth-watering mix of local food and drink.

The Wight Bear

Tuesday Evening's in Southbourne get busy down at the The Wight Bear micro pub. The Wight Bear is a pub located in Southbourne on Sea in Dorset and Martin and Craig musicians who play a very personal acoustic performance here most Tuesday Evening's. You may want to come along to listed to a harmony from Craig, or a Dad joke from Martin, either way you will definately get to hear some of the best live music in Bournemouth tonight.

Acoustic 80s Covers

The 1980s have a special place in today's popular music culture as the '80s gave birth to a lot of legendary bands and artists. The electro melodies instrumental hooks and beats were replacing traditional music,  heavily influenced by the availability of Electronic-music, synthesizers creating the Synth-pop era, which peaked in the late 1970s to mid-1980s. It wasn't just about the listeners though, The Music-industry was all about image due to the popularity of the music video, electronica appeared to take over Rock-and-Roll.
