The Gentlemen of Leisure Band and Review, affectionately known as the ‘Gents,’ offer a musical smorgasbord to sate even the most discrete of palates. From Top 40 to the Standards, from Jazz to Hip-Hop, from Polka to Motown, they do it all! As Chicago’s premier band, the Gents offer dynamic quality and class entertainment for all occasions.
The band's purpose is to entertain by any means necessary. They play the types of music that will please your senses and make your body move, while presenting a visual show for those who like to sit and enjoy.
The group has been together forever. The band is comprised of a total of 15 pieces, which include a dynamic brass section, a smoking rhythm section and the hottest female vocalists in Chicago.
The band was the musical lure used to bring the 1996 democratic convention to Chicago. The same tactic was used in San Diego for the republican convention. The Gents represented the musical talent available in Chicago.
The band’s clients included:
- Michael Jordan
- George Lucas & Mellody Hobson
- The Clintons
- The Pritzkers
- Governors Edgar and Ryan
- Mayor Daley
- The Mirage
- Treasure Island
- The Bellagio
The Gentleman of Leisure Band is a standup band, constantly dancing, moving, and playing the music that will make every event successful, fun and memorable. The musical selections start with the client, but ends with the Gents. The band’s strength is their ability to read the crowd.
