A Tribe of Vibes
Truffle is a family, a tribe of vibes; musicians and fans united by the groove, wherever and whenever it can happen. From one guitar and a voice in the corner of a cozy pub, to a churning, five piece, electrified, rootsy funk machine on the big stage, and every expression in between, we morph and adapt to any room and every audience. Here’s the low-down on our most common embodiments: Click on Ensembles.

Thanks to EDGE Magazine for voting the latest CD, “FIVE” one of the best 15 releases of 2015……..
”Front man Dave Gerard is simply doing what he does. Expanding his repertoire while giving his loyal fan base a new collection of tunes to add to their record collection. “FIVE” is heartfelt, it’s funky, and on a scale of five stars, it maxes out at the top.”
Thanks for keeping live music alive!
