~ Ethical Postering ~
Truffle is all about community. The Band, the fans, the clubs & their staff, the towns: we're all in it together. Please poster responsibly and ethically. Use only established, acceptable poster spots. Leave the poster board better than you found it. Don't take down viable posters, but do take down expired posters and recycle them. If we nurture it, the community will grow positively. Thanks!
~ A note on "Electric" and "Acoustic" ~
The acoustic guitars are electrified; they also appear at electric shows. The electric guitars sometimes sound like acoustics. DB plays electric bass all the time, but it can sound sweet, as an acoustic instrument might. There is generally no Drum Kit at an acoustic show, but there may be drums; they might even get hit with sticks. People dance at acoustic shows; folks will focus in and listen at electric shows. It's hard to explain: come see some of each, so you'll know it when you hear it.
Dave has a vibrant solo career. He plays clubs, gives seminars, presents at schools, entertains private parties and functions. He is sometimes accompanied by David Bailey in these endeavors. Here are biographical and promotional materials.
If DG, DB and Ned play together, it's Truffle. Without drums, we call it acoustic, add Mike or Pete on Drum Kit and we call it electric. Pete might play hand percussion at an acoustic gig, which is also cool.
The Groove Thang is DG, DB and a drummer, electrified. At home, Mike and Pete share the duties. Often Pete will play a hybrid thang that's part hand percussion, part drum kit, and featuring vintage and antique bangy stuff. On the road, the incomparable Kent Raine takes the seat. Each version is a little different, but they share a vibe. Things might get a little more stretchy than at some Truffle shows: chances are taken. There is laughter, there are tears. No one knows what will happen. You kind of just have to experience it.
