Working Class Hussys is an original eight-piece Americana infused alternative rock band with a southern blend based in New Jersey. Songwriter and lead vocalist, Ian Patrick Gentles’ vision is to bring the sound of three part vocal harmonies together with his strong lead vocal in a rock band setting. Two dueling lead guitars decorate the sound with recognizably rock emphasis. All that combined with a strong rhythm section give the band a unique and powerful "wall of sound." The band features Ian Patrick Gentles (lead singer, acoustic rhythm guitar), Anthony Mann (drums), Brian Casale (electric bass), Mike McClellan (lead guitar), Gregory Winka (lead guitar) and vocalists Patti Lynn, Amanda During and Ann Shi.
In the Summer of 2014 Working Class Hussys are proud to announce the release of Diesel Tunes inspired by Ian Patrick Gentles’ twelve years staring at the open road ahead as a truck driver. This follows the success of their previous album, Diary of A Blue Collar Cracker, on New Jersey and Pennsylvania airwaves. Their second track on the new album, Goin’ For A Ride, is starting to receive airplay on FM Radio stations as well.
A prolific songwriter, Gentles writes songs exploring common thoughts and experiences with hooky melodic capabilities that you find in catchy Broadway tunes. His band embodies the unique sound of Working Class Hussys, influenced by many genres including alternative rock, classic 70’s, and southern rock
