Bill Yates toured with and fronted the band for 9 years until he tragically passed away the night of Monday, January 26, 2015, from complications due to cancer. He leaves behind a historic legacy of music, having the honor of previously performing with many bluegrass greats down through the years, such as Red Allen, Bill Monroe, Jimmy Martin, but most importantly the Country Gentlemen. Now, with a plethora of urging and support from friends, family, fellow musicians and promoters alike, the band has decided to continue on the legacy of the Country Gentlemen as The Country Gentlemen Tribute Band not only without Bill, but also in honor of Bill.

The current lineup continuing to perform on stage will include: Mike Phipps on guitar and "Charlie Waller" sound-alike vocals, David Propst on mandolin and vocals, Rick Briggs on banjo and vocals, Larry Kirk on upright bass and vocals and Mark Clifton on dobro and vocals. This ensemble vows to continue on to put its heart and soul into each performance, trying to satisfy that musical hunger for the multitude of Country Gentlemen fans that are still in this country; especially the ones that truly do miss Charlie Waller & now also, Bill Yates. They will continue to move forward and perform in tribute, as closely as possible, the tunes from yesteryear thought to be long lost for the ages, as they attempt to re-create each tune, vocally and musically as it was previously originally presented and performed.

So don't miss this live tribute to one of the most influential bands in bluegrass history. Come and see and hear the sound that is The Country Gentlemen Tribute Band. You'll walk in awe at hearing what you thought you'd not hear again.

Theme by Danetsoft and Danang Probo Sayekti inspired by Maksimer
