Patchwork House Concerts welcomes back Alan Gerber : May 17 @ 8 pm
$20 (all funds given to the artist)
Alan has been around the block a few times. Discovered by producer Paul Rothchild (the Doors, Janis Joplin) he became the singer, songwriter and keyboardist for the band Rhinoceros that toured with BB King, Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix, Bob Dylan and others.
His solo career began in the 1970s. His style is described as blues meets gospel meets boogie woogie featuring mastery of keyboards, guitar and violin. Check this out:
Last time he played here we had to adjust all of the paintings – the entire house was shaking!
From this great review of his performance at an acoustic festival (http://alangerber.org/sat-night-was-magic-alan-gerber-acoustic-harvest%E2%80%8F)
“Alan gave an outstanding performance at Acoustic Harvest Sat. night (May 23/09). It was one of the most eclectic shows we’ve ever had with Alan performing many songs impromptu, ‘off the cuff’, at times moving around through the audience delighting and mesmerizing them with his wide range of genre and style; with his great wit, charm and humour.”
