"Man you've got some catchy tunes!"
“Berklee trio, The Yesberger Band, wraps up their first-ever West Coast tour this week with a final stop in Seattle. The Yesberger Band includes singer/songwriter Devon Yesberger, drummer Gabriel Smith, and bassist Spencer Stewart. Their jazz-pop tunes, rich with catchy grooves and melodies, are deftly poetic and sincerely positive. On his way up the coast, Devon sat down to chat with us about the band’s newly released Bad Weather EP, their experience opening for Bobby McFerrin and the Yellowjackets, and the frustrations they faced in booking their first tour.”
“Young Devon Yesberger has assembled quite the trio from parts collected at Boston’s Berklee College of Music. He’s already guided his group through shows with the Temptations and, now, Bobby McFerrin & Yellowjackets. So it’s no wonder the pianist sounds so sonically optimistic, raining soulful, gentle electric daubs across the band’s first release, “The Bad Weather” EP. Never mind the title: all seven cuts bask in sunny skies.”
“The Yesberger Band is on tour, and they’ve opened for The Temptations, and will be opening soon for Bobby McFerrin and The Yellowjackets for two nights at the Britt Pavillion in Ashland, Oregon.”
“With only a few gigs under their belt but a wealth of musical knowledge to recommend them, the Berklee boys are set for their summer tour, which runs from Friday, July 15, through the end of the month. The tour, 16 gigs total, takes them from Seattle to Los Angeles in Yesberger's dad's van, which they made more tour-friendly by installing a futon in the back. The band has high hopes for a longer tour next summer in conjunction with a full-length album.”
“Devon Yesberger (as sideman) played for Siobhan Brugger at a sold out show at Bake's Place last summer.”
