Gerd Rube

He gets the best of both worlds... living his dream by
touring all over Europe in the summer and along the
Florida Keys during the winter season. Gerd Rube, the
rock-singer/songwriter and guitarist from Schorndorf
(Germany) has already been a celebrity in his homeland
when he first started to tour the US in 1993. Back then,
his music-video "Happy Day" was played in a talent-show
on MTV Europe for several months.

From New York to California, Boston to Nashville, Gerd
performed on many live stages throughout the years and
recorded with celebreties like members of the Garth
Brook's Band as well as with members of Gloria Estefan's
band, the legendary "Miami Sound Machine".

Being titled "Honorary Local" as well as"The Keys Favorite
German Son" by his fast-growing fanbase in the US, it made
it easy for him to decide to make Key West,FL his winter
home. People love Gerd's original songs, especially the
popular "Florida Keys Song" that can also be found on his
CD "Live in Key West". Now, in April 2011 he releases two
new live CDs "Living the dream" Vol.1 and Vol.2 featuring
the new single "Do what I love & love what I do", a reflection
of the passion he puts in his outstanding hows with a great
mix of classic rock and originals.

During his live shows you can see he puts his heart and
soul into every song, providing a concert atmosphere by
using the latest sound equipment and lights that comple-
ment his passionate performance without taking away from
the roots of the songs. People have said: "The way he
performs some of the coversongs sounds even better than
the originals". His very own version of Prince's classic
"Purple Rain" has become a tradition in the finale of his
live shows leaving the croud wanting more...

Gerd has found and settled into his own style that could
be described as an American classic-rock mix of The Eagles
with some early Bryan Adams, plus a pinch of John Mellen-
camp and a dash of the 80's like Bon Jovi or Def Leppard
tossed in for good measure.

With more than 800 songs in his present set list, no show
is exactly like the other. He enjoys randomly selecting
the tunes spontaneously during his performances to get the
best out of any event whether it's at clubs, private par-
ties, festivals, weddings or corporate gigs.
