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.

“Five” is a celebration of sorts. It’s feel-good music with a message. From opener “Magical Day” to closing track, “As Good as it Gets,” what you’ll hear is inspired music percolating with energy, the kind of energy that comes from Gerard and the fresh approach of recording live tracks augmented by masterful flourishes from Payne’s studio presence and contributions.

Tuesday Sept. 1 * Gaslight Deck
64 Market St., Portsmouth, NH (603) 430-9122

This is my last evening show at the Gaslight for the season. The weather looks beautiful for a sweet night of outdoor music under the stars in Po-town!
Thursday Sept. 3 * Gigi’s Terrace
2 Beach St., York, ME (207) 351-8147
Dg Solo ~ 7:00-10:00
This will be my FINAL show at Gigi’s for the season. I am sad to see this one end as I have had a great season here with all these good folks. If you have not made one of these yet, tonight’s the night. A beautiful spot by the ocean with GREAT food and handmade cocktails. RJ and crew really do it right. Add some DG music and it’s a winning combo.
Friday Sept. 4 * North Beach Bar & Grill
931 Ocean Blvd., Hampton, NH (603) 967-4884
DG’ Groove Thang ~ 9:00-12:00
I can’t think of a better way to kick off the Holiday weekend than at the beach! Catch DG, DB and Pete doing the electric trio at NB! We always have fun here and see some great friends and music lovers. It’ll be months before we get back.
Saturday Sept. 5 ~ Two Shows
Saturday Sept. 5 * Emery Farm
Rt. 4, Durham, NH (603) 742-8495

Annual Labor Day Fest – All Ages
We played the first one last year and are returning again this season. A really fun way to enjoy the Holiday weekend. Fun for the whole family with acoustic Truffle tunes on the porch, wagon rides, petting zoo, face painting and of course all the veggies the farm has to offer! Come join us at MY local Farm.
Later that night………..
Saturday Sept. 5 * Litchfields
Rt. 1, Wells, ME (207) 646-5711
DG & DB ~ 5:00-8:00 ~ On the Patio
DB and I hit the patio here for the Holiday weekend as well. My suggestion…..after boogie boarding at Drake’s Island beach, come join us for an après cold beverage, and some eats, while enjoying some music on the patio. Our ONLY show here this season.
Sunday Sept. 6 * Thomas Laighton Cruise
315 Market St., Portsmouth, NH (603) 431-5500
