In Loving Memory of Our Beloved Gord Kudlak
It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of our charismatic co-founder, dear friend, and band brother Gord Kudlak, affectionately known as “Kuddles” by those who loved him. Gord touched the lives of so many with his beautiful music, and he will be dearly missed by his family, friends, fans, and bandmates. He’ll be most remembered for his signature song, Elvis’s “Teddy Bear”, as well as “Mustang Sally”, “Runaround Sue”, and “It’s All In The Game”.
He had a giant heart full of love, and finally, it just gave out at 12:25 am, Good Friday, April 10th, 2020 from complications of diabetes and heart disease. Gord had been dealing with medical challenges for some time, but whenever he took the stage he would rise above the pain and give himself fully to his audience, so much so that his fans would never see his pain, only his talent, dedication, and love of music. He lived for the music and for the connection he established with everyone who loved it like he did. Like any true performing artist he believed that “the show must go on,” no matter what.In his honour, the band is resolved to continue to do just that.
In loving memory of Gord, we have added two songs to our Videos page.
Goodbye Kuddles, we love you. Thank you for the beautiful music you left us.
