Berklee trio, The Yesberger Band, wraps up their first-ever West Coast tour this week with a final stop in Seattle. The Yesberger Band includes singer/songwriter Devon Yesberger, drummer Gabriel Smith, and bassist Spencer Stewart. Their jazz-pop tunes, rich with catchy grooves and melodies, are deftly poetic and sincerely positive. On his way up the coast, Devon sat down to chat with us about the band’s newly released Bad Weather EP, their experience opening for Bobby McFerrin and the Yellowjackets, and the frustrations they faced in booking their first tour. - Berklee Groove


With only a few gigs under their belt but a wealth of musical knowledge to recommend them, the Berklee boys are set for their summer tour, which runs from Friday, July 15, through the end of the month. The tour, 16 gigs total, takes them from Seattle to Los Angeles in Yesberger's dad's van, which they made more tour-friendly by installing a futon in the back. The band has high hopes for a longer tour next summer in conjunction with a full-length album. - Mail Tribune


Young Devon Yesberger has assembled quite the trio from parts collected at Boston’s Berklee College of Music. He’s already guided his group through shows with the Temptations and, now, Bobby McFerrin & Yellowjackets. So it’s no wonder the pianist sounds so sonically optimistic, raining soulful, gentle electric daubs across the band’s first release, “The Bad Weather” EP. Never mind the title: all seven cuts bask in sunny skies. (www.yesberger.com)

The Yesberger Band, an east coast college band founded in early 2010 at The Berklee College of Music, is the project of lead singer and pianist Devon Yesberger, backed up by good friends Spencer Stewart (bass) and Gabriel Smith (drums). They are a sensible, groovy, and poetic trio, mixing jazz nuances with catchy original pop. Inspired by the untapped bounty of wisdom hidden amongst the stars and spread throughout daily life, Devon writes songs that channel the feelings of laughter and smiles that everyone desires. The resulting performances only strengthen these feelings with a positive energetic stage presence that is unmatched by most young musicians, and is evidence of a strong passion for music, as well as a deep friendship between the performers and audience.

The Yesberger Bands diversity and originality is the product of the rich musical community they have grown up in. Devon, Gabe, and Spencer were all active jazz musicians throughout high school and continue to study the idiom. However, it wasnt until attending Berklee College of Musicwhere they were surrounded by so many songwriters, composers, and music styles from every corner of the worldthat they began branching out of their jazz comfort zone, forming a band with a distinct sound and appeal.

The Yesberger Band has completed a successful summer tour that took them cross-country, opening for acts including Bobby Mcferrin, The Yellowjackets, and The Temptations. Along the way they played 22 dates, sold over 500 CDs, met hundreds of new fans, and had the incredible opportunity to share their music with many open ears: just a small glimpse of their bright future. Their debut album, The Bad Weather EP, features six catchy original tracks and one original cover of the popular Beatles tune, Blackbird. The CD is an independent release featuring the talents of many Berklee students making appearances on most tracks, as well as behind the scenes engineering and mixing.

Keep your eyes peeled for The Yesberger Band as they make big waves in the future. Become a fan on facebook and reverbnation, and catch them live for an unforgettable night of entertaining and inspiring music that is sure to groove and move you.
