Imagine rock and punk riffs mixed with a little funk, bouncing groove and moving melodies. The Gentlemen sound brings to mind bands like Queens of the Stone Age, Helmet, Soulfly, Faith No More, Pantera, and Hed (PE), sprinkled with a local flavor influenced by the Deftones and WillHaven. As a band, Gentlemen of Tragedy writes and performs with energy and emotion, staples of the 916 sound; a heavy independent underground that incorporates the diversity of the Sacramento local music scene (rock, punk, hip hop, reggae, and funk have a rich culture in the region) while giving way to good hooks and melodies that catch your attention. Fans love their live shows as much for the music as for the bands engaging presence, there's no denying they love connecting with their audiences and giving a good show.
After releasing Chaos & Class (to a solid reception!) the band has been busy writing. Now that bookings have slowly started opening back up, the Gentlemen have been on a heavy rehearsal schedule with some new shows on the horizon. They're very much looking forward to having a full gig schedule, if you are interested or want to them somewhere in the near future their contact info is listed below, please reach out!
