Diane "The Beast" Rudolph
Diane "The Beast" Rudolph, out of Miami, Florida, started playing drums professionally in 1989. She has studied privately with Michael Piescki, Steve Rucker, and Todd Sucherman. Her heavy backbeat style comes from a combination of influences, mainly from the Rock, and Blues/R ‘n B genres. She attributes her versatility to "accepting every gig possible", which gave her the opportunity to work with some of the top musicians and vocalists in the explosive South Florida music scene. Diane relocated to Arkansas in 2006. She was nicknamed "The Beast" by her former bandmates. She currently works with several local bands outside of Divas on Fire. She holds down the beat for the Brave Soul party band, Los Formidables, and occasionally for Jesse Dean & Co. She also does freelance fill-in and session work.
