Rudy and the Professionals
With authentic Carribean, Reggae and island music highlighting their song list, Rudy and the Professionals–lead by native Bahaman Rudy Fowler–is perfect for summertime, island-themed and poolside or beachfront weddings and events. But this band does it all! Their show is rounded out with soulful motown, oldies and rock.
Rudy only recently relocated to Northeast Ohio from the Bahamas, where he headlined with the house band at the Royal Oasis Casino in Freeport Grand Bahamas. For years he entertained guests at several “native shows” and casinos on the island of Nassau. Rudy has opened for The Platters, Earth Wind & Fire, Kool and the Gang and Lee Greenwood.
Rudy brings an authentic islands experience to life in Ohio with a high-energy group of hand-picked talent. Rudy and the Professionals is a six-piece band consisting of Rudy on vocals and percussion as well as keys, drums, guitar, bass, sax, and multiple vocalists on lead and harmony.
Awesome Band! Very wide variety of music! Great Time!Mike C, Youngstown, OHDec 25, 2008
Fantastic Band! Rudy is so entertaining, I felt like I was in the Caribbean. And what a great variety of Music styles. I think Rudy’s better than the original performers. Everyone at our party danced the night away. Thanks for making our night so so special!!R. Rufh, Youngstown OH,Dec 13, 2008
Last evening with Rudy and the Professionals was magical. Everyone, all ages, commented on how much they enjoyed the music AND the muscians. Rudy made it more than just music. You have to hear this band and their amazing talent. We asked for four special numbers that were not on their playlist. They were able to do three at least as good as the original. We can’t wait for more family events where we can dance to their beat.Ed S, Hartville, OHOct 18, 2008
Wonderful…Outstanding! Great band, and Rudy is so much fun. Very professional. Our guests thought they were fantastic. They can go from Motown to Reggae to Jimmy Buffet sounding just like the original singer. Great talent!Sandy N, Pittsburgh, PASep 18, 2008
