Palo Chodelka – gitara

Palo Chodelka

Gitarista Palo Chodelka začal svoju hudobnú kariéru hodinami klavíra, neskôr hodinami klasickej gitary. Už ako mladý hral v rôznych amatérskych kapelách. V roku 1984 založil skupinu OMIKRON, neskôr CRIMISIN a ADALHARD.

Svoju profesionálnu dráhu začína v roku 1989 nástupom do ostravskej rockovej skupiny CITRON, s ktorou nasledujúce obdobie nahráva a koncertuje.
V roku 1991 zakladá skupinu Dr.Bier a zaznamenáva priaznivé ohlasy medzi rockovými fanúšikmi. V roku 1993 je nominovaný Slovenskou hudobnou asociáciou, Zväzom autorov a interpretov, v kategórii "Inštrumentalista roka".

V septembri 1994 zakladá spolu s Tomášom Mastišom a Ďusom Petrusom skupinu LIQUID BOOGIE ROLL. Okrem aktívneho účinkovania v skupine zostavuje vlastnú gitarovú školu a organizuje workshopy pre mladých pokročilých gitaristov. Pôsobí ako štúdiový hráč, účinkuje na rôznych rockových koncertoch a má za sebou aj vystupovanie so Štátnym komorným orchestrom Žilina - Slovak Sinfonietta. Podieľa sa na komponovaní a nahrávaní mnohých albumov a projektov, počínajúc rockovým a bluesrockovým žánrom, až po filmovú a scénickú hudbu.

V marci 1999 natáča v spolupráci s režisérom Ivanom Kočnerom a Slovenskou televíziou Bratislava, 15-dielnu televíznu reláciu "Gitarová škola", ktorú zostavil z vlastných cvičení a skladieb.
Na túto reláciu neskôr, v rokoch 2002 - 2005 naväzuje veľmi úspešný, trojdielny, multimediálny projekt ROCKOVÁ GITAROVÁ ŠKOLA a projekt GITAROVÁ ŠKOLA PRE VŠETKÝCH.
Okrem toho publikuje v rokoch 2004 - 2007 v hudobnom magazíne MUZIKUS gitarový výukový seriál Rock Guitar Workshop.

Od decembra 2006 do apríla 2014 účinkuje aj v punk-rockovej kapele KONFLIKT, s ktorou odohral viac ako 650 koncertov a nahral tri albumy.

Od roku 1999 – až dodnes, spolupracuje a vydáva albumy v pražskom hudobnom vydavateľstve FONTANA MUSIC LIBRARY, ktoré sa zaoberá filmovou, televíznou, rozhlasovou a reklamnou hudobnou produkciou pre zahraničných partnerov. Celkovo vydal vo vydavateľstve Fontana jedenásť albumov.
So skupinou LIQUID BOOGIE ROLL má na svojom konte päť albumov a jedno DVD.

V súčasnosti sa Palo venuje hlavne pedagogickej činnosti, koncertovaniu a komponovaniu.

Okrem toho sa podieľa aj na realizácii albumu LADY JANE – Čierny motýľ, ktorý vychádza v apríli 2020.

Pripravil aj materiál na najnovší album kapely LIQUID BOOGIE ROLL, ktorého nahrávanie začalo v marci 2020 v štúdiu Birdland Studios. Realizácia stále prebieha.
