Perry Gerber is a local celebrity in Lincoln City, Oregon. Over the last 35 years, his passion for playing music provided him the opportunity to tour with Sara Evans and The North Santiam Band. That era included opening for Willie Nelson and Tim McGraw. This homegrown musician has played regularly for the last 20 years with his cover band The Ocean, coastal celebs Bret Lucich and Michael Dane, and toured the Casinos and McMenamins with Jimmy Bivens Band.  

Over the last few years, Perry has moved center stage as an acoustic singer songwriter with his originals. Last year, Perry put together a rocking Portland band with award winning Bassist Kurt Bevers and Drummer Rob McKendrick.  The three 60's crooners enthusiastically appeared onto the 2016 summer circuit with festivals, wineries and summer concerts.

People respond to Perry's beautiful and melodic voice. He crafted tuneful songs about life and journeys, love and heartbreak. A great entertainer, Perry has a knack for pulling the crowd into his music. His incredible energy on stage engages the audience with his soulful tunes. His original song Sandy Beaches landed him a spot as an emerging artist with Supercuts – ‘Rock The Cut’ campaign, being featured in over 2000 locations nationwide.  The scope of his new CD, I BELIEVE highlights Perry’s hard-hitting rock acoustic guitar strumming but also brings attention to his gentle finger picking and percussive playing style. The words are thought provoking and meaningful and are emphasized by his beautiful story telling and vintage sound.


Kurt Bevers, bassist, has been playing music since he was 7 yrs. old.  First playing guitar, he soon found the REAL DRIVE in the band came from the Rhythm Section, and most specifically, the BASS.  Recording his first album at 16 years old.  Performing in National Acts, Top 40 Show Bands, Writing, Producing other Artists, and Engineering Recordings and Concerts has earned him a nomination to the Oregon Rock & Roll Hall of Fame for a Lifetime Achievement award in 1998.

Kurt Bevers is a native of the Northwest. He played in many of the local and national acts you may have seen like; GOLDRUSH, ROSEWOOD, STONEYPOINT, AIRFLO, FOOLISH PLEASURE, SECRETS, and ROMANCE. He also did a stint as the Bass Player for Capitol recording artist JONI HARMS. Kurt is a published songwriter with airplay. He also produces recordings for a wide variety of types and styles of music. Kurt engineered the original recordings that started Oregon Public Broadcasting's Digital Music Program that resulted in 3 award winning CD's to date.

Lisa Mann (2015 Blues Music Award winner/2016 Nominee and Cascade Blues Association Hall of Famer) adds her dynamite bass grooves and perfect harmonies to these passionate songs. Lisa Mann says, “ Perry has such a strong sense of how to make a song live and breathe.  It's been a real pleasure working with someone who not only cares about a song, but also knows how to deliver it with energy and finesse.”

Producer John Neff (Journey, Steely Dan and David Lynch) says, “I really like Perry's music. It is from the heart music, and that stems from what a great person he is.

It was an absolute pleasure to work with Perry on this project, and I hope to work with him again.”  Skip Von Kuske, (Portland Cello Project) delivers an emotional performance on ANGEL with a finesse that must be heard. LaRhonda Steele performs gospel harmonies while Carl Smith (Crazy 8’s) adds percussion to SHA LA LA.
