Growing up together in New York forged a bond between these musicians that is evident in their lock-tight pockets and seemingly telepathic stage interactions. From their roots in the East coast neo-soul and hip-hop communities, these friends have forged a signature sound that is steeped in sweet soulfulness and ferocious grooves.
Excellent Gentlemen plays danceable, vocal Soul R&B music. Think: 70's block parties and golden-age hip-hop records. Their music stands for positivity, love, happiness and sex; this is definitely NOT the drudgery of mediocre Indie-Rock. On the strength of their incredible live show, the independently-run band has ignited an adoring fan base and has become the hot touring funk act in the Pacific Northwest.
The debut album is way overdue and will be released in 2009.
