Is Live Music Dying?

Due to decreasing sales CD and Vinyl record sales in the music-industry, musical artists and local bands are playing live entertainment as the main way many musicians make a living. This is no different for local live bands such as The Pudenski Brothers performing live renditions of classic songs.  Small music venues are struggling to make ends meet as regular venues struggle with modern life, performers don't get the gigs and the recordings stop. Even prior to COVID-19 local music suffered, complicated licensing restrictions and noise complaints lead to battles of bureaucracy with local councils and authorities limiting public entertainment and restricting performances. As a nation, small live music venues providing entertainment are closing down in the UK with  “ever-increasing rents, rising business rates and ongoing redevelopment plans floor by floor, independent live music scene venues across the UK are disappearing. In the last decade, we’ve lost London's iconic Astoria, Manchester’s Roadhouse, Bristol's Bierkeller, the Arches in Glasgow, and locally Mr Kyps in Poole to name but a few. Keeping venues open continues to be a monumental battle, upcoming bands won’t have the platform they need to progress. 


The band's lineup consists of frontman, vocalist and guitarist Martin providing the lead vocals with drummer Craig providing the rhythm on the drums, harmonies and of course the melodies from the Kazoo. Craig provides the percussion from a Cajon and Martin has a range of acoustic guitars dependent upon the venues being played. Hits of popular-music, classic-rock,  reggae, disco, rock-and-roll and occasionally country-music the band's playlist is considerable and with notice, they can perform special acoustic versions of songs for that special occasion.

Around the local Bournemouth area, the Pudenski Brothers are two talented musicians performing live as a versatile acoustic duo who perform classic and contemporary hits from across the decades. The Pudenski Brothers consists of two talented musicians who perform melodic and intimate acoustic renditions of classics; covering artists from James Brown, Ray Charles and Marvin Gaye to Bob Marley, Michael Jackson and Bryan Adams.
