Bio

Strap on your boogie-woogie shoes, hold on and get ready ... Alan Gerber has arrived! This eccentric entertainer is wowing audiences internationally. His amalgamation of boogie-woogie, stunning vocal interpretations and fine musicianship make Gerber an artist of the highest order. His show is exhilarating and captivates audiences of all demographics. He has participated in major events such as: The Montreal Jazz Festival, Ottawa Blues Festival, Fort Lauderdale Blues Festival, Toronto Harbourfront Blues, Carcassonne Music Festival & many more.

In the late ‘60’s Producer Paul Rothchild (The Doors, Paul Butterfield, Janis Joplin...) discovered Alan's talent and soon he was a singer, songwriter and keyboardist for a group to become known as Rhinoceros. The release of two albums on the Elektra label brought Rhinoceros to tour North America with such names as Janis Joplin, BB King, Jefferson Airplane, Traffic, Jimi Hendrix, Steppenwolf, John Lee Hooker, Jeff Beck and others.

Alan left Rhinoceros and released his first solo effort in 1971 with Shelter Records. The worldwide distribution of this recording earned him a tour with Leon Russell. His 1974 single "Tied On" went to number one on Québec radio and Alan toured the province in the wake of its success. Gerber placed two songs on the soundtrack of Bob Dylan's movie "Renaldo and Clara", performed at Bob Dylan's Rolling Thunder Revue and toured with Lou Reed in the United States.

Since 1994, he has released five albums "Chicken Walk" 1994, "Fools That Try" 1997, "The Boogie Man", 1999, Alan Gerber Live", 2002 and “Blue Tube” in 2005. Each album showcases Gerber’s immense talent
