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.

And, and….I’m working on a DG Winter Colorado tour now; Jan. 21-25


“Magical Day” sets the tone of Five with some jazzy soul, leading me to believe Dave Gerard’s musical lifeline leads back to Van Morrison and Al Green. Dave has been at this for three decades (this being his fifth full-length) and the quality is up there with his guitar playing, the relaxed grooves, and the effective keyboard playing of Bill Payne (Little Feat). Listening to Dave is like getting a good back massage: the groove is just right and it makes you feel good. The chorus of “Happy Home,” with its soothing Hammond B3, gets under your skin immediately, making me wonder if I’ve heard it before. The disc hits its stride with the over six-minute “The Messenger” where the rest of the band (David Bailey on bass, Conor O’Brien on percussion, and Kent Raine on drums) captures a nice groove; the vocal line “Is he the messenger” in the chorus is repeated in a slightly distorted echo. The song has a section where the band comes way down and Dave talks, reminiscent of what Jimi Hendrix did in “If 6 Were 9.” “The Unknown” comes close to sounding country with its mandolin line, but Dave’s voice keeps a certain soul in the mix. Based in New Hampshire, Dave Gerard has seen fame with his other band (Savoy) Truffle and has played as many as 275 shows a year. His experience shows in this CD – an excellent listen that leads me to believe he’s got a fun live show.                          The Noise (T Max) ~ Boston, MA
