Alan Gerber at The Scotch Creek Hub
North Shuswap music lovers are in for a treat on Saturday, November 2nd when the very talented blues artist, Alan Gerber performs at The Hub in Scotch Creek. Alan was a founding member of the Elektra Records recording group, “Rhinoceros.” He is a multi-instrumentalist, who plays piano, guitars (acoustic and electric slide), fiddle, and button accordion. He is also a vocalist and composer and has appeared with Bob Dylan, BB King, Van Morrison, Janis Joplin, John Lee Hooker, Sonny Terry/Brownie McGee and many others. His live show has a very cool blues/jazz feel to it.
Based in Quebec, Alan will be on tour in B.C. in early November and we are lucky he will be playing in Scotch Creek. While he does play many instruments, his focus is the keyboards on which he plays a mean boogie-woogie piano. In addition to playing his creative original tunes and some cover songs, Alan loves to tell stories from his early years playing music in New York and Los Angeles with many of the blues legends of the 1960s and 70s.
"The synergy of Alan Gerber is a complex concoction difficult to explain. Without question, Alan is greater than the sum of his parts, and when combined and on display for a mesmerized and awestruck audience, you can fully understand Alan Gerber in the flesh! Alan is a seasoned pro, a master-class of how to take years of honing your craft and a million plus miles of live performances to reach this level. Within the first 30 seconds of a live Alan Gerber show the audience is hooked, completely! As a songwriter, storyteller, musician, performer and personality, it is a marvel of engineering, the perfect storm. Alan has produced an impressive catalog of musical gems, which I encourage you to acquire but I beg you to experience a live performance....then you will know the synergy of Alan Gerber!"
