Northwest (Territories) Is The BestApril 15, 2014
With the McKenzie River delta and the far-off Richardson mountains as his backdrop, Alan Gerber delivered an evening of musical delights to the house concert guests in Inuvik. 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 Louie Goose and James Rogers after the show.
In thinking of the evening it seems pretty simple – pure pleasure. Not only the wonderful music, but the warm personality of Alan Gerber created an evening which will be remembered.
