THE GENTS ON BRITISH TV!
The BBC describes us as a “Cheeky trad jazz duo with an energetic display of banjo fireworks and wit.” We’ll take it!
MERRY CHRISTMAS & HAPPY NEW YEAR!
Oh, man! It’s been quite a year for the Gents. We’ve played for more people in more places than ever before and received a steady helping of good notices and airplay from press outlets and radio stations the world over. The word’s getting out about our humble two-man band. Thanks for being a part of it!
2013 looks to be even better, with a new live album coming soon, the recording of a new studio record, lots of shows all over the USA and Europe, and some other very very exciting projects. You’ll be hearing from us soon!
Til then, Cheers!
Love, Andy Bean & The Councilman.
