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.
The band is usually busy booking gigs but with the current state of affairs has been focused on releasing their first EP, available for streaming and downloads Feb. 2021. They are, as always, hopeful and enthusiastic for the return of playing live while continuing to create new music.
