This Cold River Radio Show Headlines Johnny Trama & The B3 Kings. Groove soul rock & roll! Their sound ranges through many classic genres but if you had to describe their recipe it would be The Meters meets Staxx Family sprinkling some Jimmy Smith and Freddie King right on top. The band has had the privilege of sharing the stage with artists such as Al Green, Booker T. Jones, Dickie Betts, New Mastersounds, G. Love and Special Sauce, to name a few.

This All Star Band features: Johnny Trama on guitar (The Silks/Dub Apocalypse/A Band of Killers), Thomas Arey on drums (Peter Wolf & the Midnight Travelers/A Band of Killers), Rusty Scott on Hammond B3 organ (Roomful of Blues).

This Show Also Features...

Dave Gerard of Truffle. On any given night a DG show is gentle, raucous, and eclectic; but always honest. His soulful style of contemporary roots music and from-the-core songwriting has earned him many awards: Best Male Artist & Song of The Year (Jam Magazine), and finalist in the John Lennon Songwriting Contest to name a few. His music takes him full time from New England to Florida, west to Colorado, and to the U.S. Virgin Islands. Acoustically he’s shared the stage with Richie Havens, Chris Smither, David Lindley, Pat Donohue, Toots & the Maytalls, and Tinytown. With his band Truffle, he’s performed with Little Feat, The Band, Phish, Dave Matthews Band, and Blues Traveler to name a few. Check out a show and his six solo recordings, “ The Zoomy Trail”, “Dreams of Kings”, “Losing the Boy”, “Memory Hill”, “FIVE”, (collaborated with Bill Payne from Little Feat), and his latest “Angels & Cowboys” 2021.
