The 3 Dudes
The 3 Dudes, a young power pop band from Charleston, SC are one of those rarities, those unexpected acts in music that rock in a way rarely seen EVER.
The Ploch brothers consist of twins, Roger and Jack, and Sam, whom they call the spare. Together they have found the gift of music to share between them, and are running wild with it. All are singers and writers who fully contribute to their creations. Roger is the groups’ dynamic drummer, a player who reminds audiences at once of John Bonham or Phil Rudd. Jack is the guitar player, his playing complete with dive bombs, harmonics, and other fretboard frenetics that would make Eddie Van Halen proud. Sam holds down the bottom, a very accomplished bassist that serves as the bands ring leader and primary vocalist onstage. He is capable of playing tunes thought to be available only to players like Sting and Flea.
In the five years they have been at the music game, the ride has been fast and adventurous. It began with the boys’ sincere hope to help a friend with brain cancer. Their solution and contribution to the cause consisted of forming a band, playing a show, and raising money for health care costs. Since that beautiful effort, The 3 Dudes have recorded an EP and 2 full length discs, performed in their home state of SC, as well as Los Angeles, San Diego, Asheville, Charlotte, and Nashville, just to name but a few. The band is hard at work daily, working with well known producers like Tommy Henrikson, Jake Sinclair, and Paul Ebersold. They also have written music with hit writers like James Bourne, and most recently had their song “Saturday” sampled by popular band New Politics for feature in a national Taco Bell commercial. It seems that the music industry vets and the rest of the country are now discovering this rarity, this unexpected young group called, The 3 Dudes.
