biographical info

Since their original formation in 1997, General Rudie have played with the biggest names in ska music today includind the legendary Skatalites. In 2000, the band firmly established itself in the Toronto area and developed a fan base by playing the annual ARA (Anti- Racist Action) yearly benefit as well as the Toronto International Jazz festival. That year also saw the band play at the Ottawa Tulip Festival and other Ontario towns in order to promote their first EP, Green Light Sessions (1999, Phist 001). 2001 proved to be General Rudie’s most fruitful year. After a week long tour of the Maritimes with the Planet Smashers in June, the group devoted the rest of the summer to the production of their first LP entitled Cooling the Mark (2001, Stomp 033). With a cross Canada tour planned for May and June and an American tour in the works for July, 2002 promises to be the most exciting and rewarding year in General Rudie’s history.
