The Rocker UK Review: Mark Duda “Month of Sundays”

mark duda

“I thought I didn’t know who Mark Duda was until I remembered hearing ‘Sons of Downton’ from his band The Handful back in 2015. I quite liked that. It was old fashioned seventies guitar rock with guest appearances from the likes of Bobby Rondinelli (Blue Oyster Cult, Rainbow, Black Sabbath), Jimi K. Bones on guitar (Joan Jett, Blondie) and Cheetah Chrome (Dead Boys).

This, however, is a solo release of seventies guitar rock with guest appearances from the likes of Bobby Rondinelli (Blue Oyster Cult, Rainbow, Black Sabbath), Jimi K. Bones on guitar (Joan Jett, Blondie) and Cheetah Chrome (Dead Boys). Plus ca change.

But why mess with something that works and this EP (yes, three in a row) is enjoyable. The half a dozen tracks on offer are well written and played with the opening “Month Of Sundays” getting things underway in fine fettle. The brass enhanced “Standoff Love” is a real highlight and with only “Worse For Wear” failing to score on the repeat-omoter it’s a win for Mr Duda.”

Month Of Sundays was released on April 14, 2017 through True Rock.

Touring Tips: Click to read all the benefits of teaming up with another band on your tour!


“Heading out on tour with your band has the potential to bring everyone in it closer together. Co-existing and constantly collaborating, playing together night after night—becoming a tight-knit troupe in the process is almost inevitable. But why not double the bonds you could solidify by bringing another group into the picture? Organizing a joint tour means you’ll connect with even more fellow musicians—and that’s not the only benefit, either.

The notion that there’s strength in numbers is inarguably true for independent and DIY bands. Touring is one of the toughest parts of the gig; in that effort especially, you’ll accomplish more working together.”

Tempelores Review: Mark Duda “Month of Sundays”


New York Rock and Roll singer Mark Duda has been working with various names we know so well. New York Dolls, Dead Boys.. plenty that we see around a lot as inspiration for a new generation. Now it is time for the release of an album on his own name. “Month of Sundays” is out now.

This album is an interesting mix of classic rock and Punk, all the good from the past carried in a 2017 jacket. A vibrant feel of party and nightlife comes when this release is spinning, a warm touch of nostalgia and maybe more a reminder of a Saturday night rather than the Sunday the title speaks of, but perhaps that is just depending the way you interpretate that.
A bunch of musicians joined in to make the sound complete; Thommy Price, Kenny Aaronson Bobby Rondinelli and Cheetah Chrome for example, a list that gives you w fair idea of what to expect.

Altogether the album sounds like a celebration, an album that is made with the heart sincere passion. It sounds like they had a lot of fun making it and that is contagious when listening to the album. All skillful musicians come together, and it works well for “Month of Sundays”.

For Booking inquiries please email Review: Amanda Abizaid “Walking in Twos” (translated)


“Amanda Abizaid is half-American and half-Lebanese musician who not only looks very beautiful, but also proves to be very versatile -she sings, plays piano and flute- and above has a big heart. After all, this seven-track EP is actually a benefit album for the purpose of “”, a non-profit organization that cares about education of children in general and the expansion and improvement of classrooms in the Philippines.

More specifically, the Aeta, a somewhat isolated tribe, mostly in the rugged part of the island of Luzon life, the object of the attention of the singer who, as expected, was touched by the way of life of the people, despite poverty and hardship, yet radiate a kind of joy and dignity which we Westerners have long not to know exists. A plate for charity and so there philanthropist can only be me happy, especially since they also musically good turns out to be in each other.

Seven tracks so, although the title track appears in two versions: a “normal”, with Stephen Stills (yes, your Stephen Stills) in a serving role on guitar in a song, witness the remix, where a lot of electronics in use was a bit to create a trip hop effect, remains intact, proving the strength of the song. Children of the Aeta sing a bit, and it always works, and although some of the texts which may seem corny -Let’s not forget that we are dealing with an American production, it seems to me that Amanda her big heart in the right place to sit. Eventually we’re all better off if we make it a better place together manage the world than it is today, right? That education, education, education is crucial, because we can only be completely agree, right?

In that picture fit actually all the other songs of the EP: “Lion’s Den”, a rock song with electronic weft, the earlier on single released “One Love”, which appears to have been really inspired by Bob Marley, the vibrating hopper “Promises of Love,” in which the great Egyptian old virtuoso Ahmed Kamal -u ‘m probably still knows his performances on the Tahrirplein- a beautiful oriental key is applying and “Release Me”, that is pure ambient and in two languages is sung.

This produces a very fine slice, that is only limited in physical form. The aim of the project is indeed at many people download the plate fee and / or stream, so the education which I wrote above, to help as many pennies. I also give the site information along so that you can speak your heart. But regardless of all charities: this is just a very nice picture!”
