About this event

Truffle

Saturday, December 11th

Doors 7 / Show 8

$15 advanced / $20 dos

What can you say about a band that’s been together since 1986? Plenty! While many bands come and go within a few years, (Savoy) Truffle is in it for the long haul. They are players and entertainers; it’s what they do!

 

Truffle is David Bailey (bass, vocals), Ned Chase (mandolin, guitar, lap steel & vocals), Mike Gendron (drums), Pete Kowalski (percussion) and Dave Gerard (vocals, electric & resonator guitars). Both Dave’s and Ned have been creating music together since 1986. They have performed in all but ten states across the U.S., playing as many as 275 shows in one year.

Mike (still the rookie) joined the band with years of experience in 1996; the only lineup change in the band’s history. The ongoing list of international acts they have supported is huge: Dave Matthews Band, Little Feat, Bill Payne, Phish, The Band, Blues Traveler, The Radiators, Buckwheat Zydeco, Spin Doctors, Arlo Guthrie, Merl Saunders, Baba Ulatundje, New Riders, Widespread panic and Toots and the Maytalls.

 

Truffle has released six albums and assorted compilations (including “Nervous Laughter” on the November/Sony label) culminating in their “30 th Bandiversary Double Bootleg”. Roots, and Soul music with strong songwriting makes for a truly unique Truffle sound all their own.

Also contributing to Gerard’s six solo records; “The Zoomy Trail”, WSCA’s best local / regional CD of 2009, the 2015 Gerard release “FIVE” (Edge Magazine’s Top 15 of 2015), and the 2021 release “Angels & Cowboys”. Their music has also appeared on major motion picture soundtracks.

 

2021 finds Truffle celebrating 35 years as a band, earning a Legacy Makers Award from the Stone Church, and being nominated best in state by NEMA.

 

Their sound, a mix of swampy soul, R&B, Bluegrass, New Orleans grooves, and World music, has been stewing in a pot for years, and is ever changing. Their live show, never dictated by a set list, is eclectic and different every night. You need to experience it for yourself ~ Enjoy!
