Alan Gerber

The Cedar Shake – Alan Gerber, QC


Where energy, intellect and an unbridled passion for life intersect, there you’ll find the music of Alan Gerber. Possessing a rock ‘n roll swagger born from years in the musical trenches tempered by a soulful poet’s heart, Gerber has won a devoted legion of fans drawn to his cleverly crafted lyrics and engaging live performances. “I’m really into the physicality of music, of rock ‘n roll and R&B,” Gerber says, “but I’m also really into poetry and intelligent lyrics, talking about something that is important to me and hopefully other people. My songs are stories about life.”

Gerber has an extensive musical resume that includes working with Bob Dylan, Leon Russell and the Doors’ legendary producer Paul Rothchild. Whether he’s performing with his children and a full band or just alone on stage, Gerber is a riveting live performer who has developed a reputation for holding an audience in the palm of his hand. Inuvik’s Miki O’Kane describes a recent show: “Gerber delivered an evening of musical delights. Hands clapping, toes tapping, smiles broadening – the fun of boogie woogie, the soul of rock n’ roll, and the sentiment of sweet lyrics were enjoyed that evening. And Alan became one of us as he invited us to sing along—which of course we did enthusiastically—laughed and cajoled with us at the break and jammed with local musicians.” “There are lots of people walking around our town today with their hair still messed up…a kind of euphoric shell-shock,” Ron Scott proclaimed after a recent Gerber show at the Sam Waller Museum in Manitoba. “Electric, eclectic, exquisite—last night’s show was one wild whitewater trip! Every bend brought another splash in the face! Exhilarating! How could this boat not flip over at these speeds in such big waves? In the end he brought us through safely…all sunburned, soaking wet and grinning ear to ear!! Can we go again?!”
