Dylan Sevey is originally based out of Wakefield, Rhode Island. While he has been active for many years as a drummer in various local bands, he has also always crafted his own songs behind the scenes.
The Gentlemen are responsible for bringing these songs to life. David Ponte plays tasteful lead guitar, laying back when necessary and masterfully soloing when called upon. Brendan Moore creates incredible atmosphere with his keyboards, seamlessly switching between moody electric pianos, ringing organs, and any other sounds needed to elevate the songs to their highest potential. Steve Ellis is the quintessential rock solid bassist, often weaving subtle touches and melodies into his driving lines, and truly holding everything down. Keaton Albro has established himself as the perfect drummer for the group, managing to find the right feels for each song and playing them with unbelievable precision.
While most groups base their sound off of one or two influences, Dylan Sevey & The Gentlemen create theirs by exploring many different musical avenues and blending them together with remarkable cohesiveness. Between these five members listening to and culling from classic rock, folk, blues, jazz, alt. country, and other genres, the Gentlemen create a sound that is diverse and unique, and has something for everyone. This has led to them opening for acts such as Jessica Lea Mayfield, T. Hardy Morris & The Hardknocks, The Mallett Brothers Band, Bow Thayer, and more.
Their 2013 debut album, "Join The Club," found the group "sounding wise beyond their years" (Chris Conti, The Providence Phoenix). John Fuzek from Motif Magazine added, "Join The Club...is chockfull of tasty tunes and is one of the best locally produced CDs I have heard in a long time." Tony Pacitti made some flattering comparisons in East Side Monthly, calling the album "a sonic quilt of country ballads, sleazy bar band blues and classic folk-rock that borrows from the likes of The Band, Bob Dylan and the White Stripes." The record caused Rob Duguay from 990WBOB.com to make a bold declaration: If you've been looking for the future of rock & roll then Dylan Sevey & The Gentlemen are definitely what you've been searching for. He added, Just make sure you get their debut album and give it a listen, it's some of the best music from a band that is sure to go places."
