- Forever in our Hearts -
Emmet & Dave played as "The Acoustic Dudes" @ "The Runway Inn" in Bethpage, circa 1980's; intended FOR 1 NIGHT ONLY! (more like “the Smothers Brothers” than anything serious!) It was such a success; that people kept asking for it again. Requests started coming in for PARTIES, New Years Eve ... we decided NYE would be better with Bass & Drums; so the name “THE ELECTRIC DUDES” was coined .... (again for 1 Night Only).
Now the band features Donna D. (vocals), Joe LaSpina (drums / vocals), Pete Pries (bass) & Dave Saul (guitar / keyboard). Who knew it would outlast the Beatles, Led Zep & most other bands by 20+ years??! When the DUDES were VOTED BEST BAND on LI; no one was more surprised than US, LOL! But THE PEOPLE HAD SPOKEN!
Electric Dudes Play the Legendary Minne-HaHa in Lake George!
