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.

Other exciting news!

I have been gearing up to start recording my 5th DG solo CD. The tunes are ready and that means to time to get on it! I will begin in early November at Thundering Sky Studios and continue through the winter in hopes of an early spring release. In addition to my band mates in Truffle, Groove Thang (Kent Raine) and a great posse of local players, I will have the pleasure of having Bill Payne (Little Feat) playing on the new record! Not flying tracks in form out west, but here at home laying down his wonderful style of piano and organ playing live! Safe to say I’m very excited about this. He’s a tremendous musician and human, and the amount of recordings he’s been on is staggering! I will keep you posted on my progress and plans as they unfold. As always when I start a project….all the sales from previous CD’s go towards the funding of the new one. If you have been needing one of my four CD’s for your self, or want to treat someone to a copy….now’s a great time!

~ Thanks & Cheers.


Thanks for keeping live music alive!
