Hailing from the Carolinas, The Gentlemen of Bluegrass, is a collaborative project of master musicians Danny Stanley, Tom Langdon, JC Rowland, Greg Penny and Randy Smith. Their debut Pinecastle Records project, Carolina Memories, releases on June 10th. Recognized for their southern style, bluegrass music; the latest album offers extraordinary harmonies and Waller/Duffey influenced vocals.
"We are delighted to have "the Gents" as part of the Pinecastle Family," said Ethan Burkhart, President of Pinecastle Records. "They provide a sound that is in keeping with the traditions of The Classic Country Gentlemen and Seldom Scene. They are a prefect compliment to the music in our catalog."
"This album gave the band the opportunity to record some of our favorite music," said lead vocalist, Danny Stanley. "We are thrilled that Pinecastle Records is helping us bring these great songs to bluegrass lovers and hope our fans enjoy listening to the latest project, as much as we enjoyed recording it."
Stanley, who is also known for his extraordinary vocal impersonations occasionally, brings "Hobo Joe" to the stage show, which is a special treat for live audiences. This fan favorite character from "down by the tracks," makes his appearance by teasing the Gents and entertaining the audience with his imitations of Willie, Hank, Lester, and many other great vocalists.
The Gentlemen of Bluegrass is comprised 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).
