The Bill Yates & the Country Gentlemen Tribute Band will be performing at the Lucketts Bluegrass Concert Series, being held back in the Old (recently renovated) Lucketts Schoolhouse located at 42361 Lucketts Road, Leesburg, VA 20176 which on Sat., March 23, 2013. It's going to be great getting back into this historic building which has housed so many great bluegrass over the years and plans on continuing on for many more years to come.
Bill Yates & the Country Gentlemen Tribute Band would like to invite everyone to come on out to see their show, with the continuing saga still including your host (and master of bluegrass ceremonies), Mr. Bill Yates as emcee and on vocals; Mike Phipps on guitar and featuring his eerie sound-alike vocals of Charlie Waller, Dave Propst on mandolin and vocals; Rick Briggs on banjo and vocals, Eric Troutman on bass and vocals and finally Mark Clifton on resophonic guitar (dobro) and vocals.
It has been a good many months since the band performed a show and they are 'itching' to get to it. They are still in the business of re-enacting that sound of Country Gentlemen sound of yesteryear that they diligently portray. The band hopes people (especially the ones that have not seen the show before) do come out, and they guarantee that if you were "ever" a fan of The Country Gentlemen, you will surely won't be disappointed!
David Propst (Mandolin/Vocals) says, "We look forward to continuing on to celebrate the ever popular music of The Country Gentlemen, especially with the 20+ year previous member of The Country Gentlemen, Mr. Bill Yates himself. We, the Bill Yates & the Country Gentlemen Tribute Band, will always continue to strive in continuing to honor the integrity of The Country Gentlemen legacy to the best of our abilities. Y'all come on out and be with us Saturday and enjoy this fabulously historic renovated venue this Saturday ... and don't forget to come check us out at our website to hopefully down the road see us somewhere at a show near you in the future. Take care, y'all, and see you Saturday!"
Show admission is $15.00 a person at the door. Show time is 7:00 PM and the doors will open at 6:00 PM. Remember, the community center is a smoke free and alcohol free environment. Food and drinks will be available for purchase.
