    "The synergy of Alan Gerber is a complex concoction difficult to explain. Without question, Alan is greater than the sum of his parts, and when combined and on display for a mesmerized and awestruck audience, you can fully understand Alan Gerber in the flesh! Alan is a seasoned pro, a master-class of how to take years of honing your craft and a million plus miles of live performances to reach this level. Within the first 30 seconds of a live Alan Gerber show the audience is hooked, completely! As a songwriter, storyteller, musician, performer and personality, it is a marvel of engineering, the perfect storm. Alan has produced an impressive catalog of musical gems, which I encourage you to acquire but I beg you to experience a live performance....then you will know the synergy of Alan Gerber!"

Four Riders, a song from Alan's new CD, "somewhere in between", has been chosen by Steve Van Zandt ( Bruce Springsteen's guitarist, actor, known for roles in The Sopranos & Lilyhammer, host of syndicated radio show, Little Steven's Underground Garage) as "Coolest Song In The World" and was playing in heavy rotation all summer. Here is a link to the new video of the song:   https://youtu.be/VKM3rVjgVjA
