Gerd Rube - Rocksolist
Location & Contact:
These days European singer, songwriter, and guitarist GERD RUBE, originally from Schorndorf Germany, is promoting his 16th CD release , "Live in Key West". This new album contains original songs and classics by Neil Young, Springsteen, Bryan Adams or even Led Zeppelin.
Continuously touring the US since 1993 as a solo, duo or with a four-piece band, Germany's (not for long) best kept secret has been building a fast-growing fanbase here and got titeled "honorary local" as well as "The Keys favorite German son".
Gerd has recorded with members of the Garth Brook's Band in Nashville, TN and members of the Miami Sound Machine. His music-video "Happy Day" was played on MTV Europe for several months. One German magazine hit home the point accurately when they wrote, "Gerd doesn't want to renew the music - he likes it the way it is!"
Performed on many live stages from Europe to his second home in the Florida Keys, from New York to California and many points in-between, his influences range from the classics of the Allman Brothers to the cutting edge of vintage Frank Zappa and all have found their place in his live performances. Throughout the years, Gerd found and settled into his own style and could be described as a mix of The Eagles, early Bryan Adams, with a little Bon Jovi tossed in for good measure. His unique voice easily identifies him and becomes very addictive. The very own version of Prince's classic "Purple Rain" has become the finale of his live shows leaving the crowd wanting more...!!
With more than 800 songs in his present setlist, he loves to random pick the tunes while he performs to get the best out of any event like clubs, private parties, festivals, weddings or corporate gigs.
