Southern Style Grass with Class!
The Gentlemen of Bluegrass’ most recent project, "Carolina Memories"
released on Pinecastle Records
Welcome to The Gentlemen of Bluegrass
The Gentlemen of Bluegrass, consisting of Danny Stanley (lead vocals/guitar), JC Rowland (tenor vocals/mandolin), Tom Langdon (resonator guitar/baritone vocals), Greg Penny (bassist/vocals), and Randy Smith (banjo/vocals) provide a sound some have said to be in the sub genera of The Classic Country Gentlemen and Seldom Scene.
Fan favorite, Hobo Joe, a character from "down by the tracks," makes his appearance by teasing the Gents and entertaining the audience with his imitations of Willie, John, Hank, Lester, and many other country greats.
"The Gentlemen of Bluegrass have delivered a very first class CD . . . I hope that bluegrass radio gets their hands on this one . . . Push this one hard Pinecastle Records! The result could be this band stepping into the national and international spotlight."
-W.J. Hallock, Prescription Bluegrass
"The Gentlemen of Bluegrass have the correct name. They are truly "gentlemen" and perform some of the best "bluegrass music" in the world. They know how to connect with their audience not only with their fine picking and harmony singing but they are also fantastic showmen. I have had the pleasure of working with these gentlemen several times in live performances and they have also appeared on my concert series "Song of the Mountains" which airs across the United States on public television. A crowd pleasing group for sure...the Gentlemen of Bluegrass."
