Description: 

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. 

Direction: 

The band is always busy booking gigs but with the current state of affairs has been focused on writing new songs and preparing for their first studio recorded EP and hope to have it finished this summer. The Gentlemen are looking forward to getting their music in your hands, returning to the stage, and playing some fresh new tunes as soon as possible.
