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.

Wednesday June 22 * Demeters
Rt.1, Portsmouth, NH (603) 766-0001
DG & DB ~ 7:00–10:00
This will be the Duo’s final show here for this spring series. If you have yet to catch us here, it’s a nice, mellow hang. The laid back side of the duo in a chill setting with wonderful food and drink. Treat yourself to an early night out mid week. We hope to resume in the fall.
Thursday June 23 * Sea Ketch
Ocean Blvd., Hampton Beach, NH (603) 926-0324
DG Solo ~ 1:30-5:00
Last week the weather was just perfect and the deck was jumpin! This week it looks a little iffy, but remember, the Ketch has the convertible roof! Any chance of rain and they roll out the ceiling. It’s officially summer so hit the beach.
Friday June 24 * York Harbor Inn
Rt.1A, York Harbor, ME (207) 363-5119
DG Solo ~ 8:00–11:00
This is one of my favorite solo rooms. There’s always an interesting diverse crowd and the folks enjoy live music. The YHI peeps do it right…..great food and service with a beautiful view of the ocean.
SAT JUNE 25 ~ 2 SHOWS:
Saturday June 25 * Tributary Brewing
10 Shapleigh Rd., Kittery, Me (207) 703-0093
DG Solo ~ 4:00-6:00
I start the day returning to one of the best breweries around. Todd has been brewing for the Portsmouth Brewery for years and now has his own in Tributary. The beer is so good, and the hang is very chill. Come join me for happy hour.
Saturday June 25 * Hilton Garden Inn
High St., Portsmouth, NH (603) 431-1499
DG Solo ~ 8:00-11:00
The evening show finds me at another one of my faves. The HGI is a hidden gem in Po-town. There’s always a fun mix of locals and people passing through to perform for. It happens to be a great sounding room and folks really listen and support live music.
Wednesday June 29 * Durham Library
49 Madbury Rd., Durham, NH (603) 868-6699
Acoustic Truffle ~ 6:30–8:00 ~ All Ages
We are the first show in the summer series and we are happy to be back this year. This is a great space for an outdoor, acoustic show with a comfy porch and lawn for you all to spread out and enjoy. This is a free show; pull up a blanket or chair, pack a cooler and have dinner with us. Let’s hope for a beautiful night; if not we have the inside space available. Our last show before a short break for the 4th of July.
Plenty more outdoor shows of this type scheduled for Derry, Rochester, Plymouth, Henniker, Atkinson, and more electric shows as well.
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!
