Howard “Guitar” Luedtke & Blue Max

Goin' Down to Alabama

Welcome

Say the name Howard “Guitar” Luedtke, and little more needs to be said. Howard is a staple in the Blues scene and with good reason. He has 40 plus years of playing guitar in both the Midwest and on the international stage.

In 1964 he got his first guitar and today, when he picks up his Les Paul, he will transport you into the world of the blues. He in incredibly talented and his passion and love for what he does shows.

He can also be seen performing solo, as a duo with his wife Deb Klossner on bass, or with his full band Blue Max, that also includes a talented line up of drummers.

Howard’s guitar playing is hard, fast and immaculate. He’s truly one of those players who lives in harmony with his instrument. That connection only comes with experience and an undying need to share this sound, which runs deep in your soul. ~ Scott Morfitt
