Chicken Pickin’ Brunch w/ Caleb & the Gents
Caleb Warren and the Perfect Gentlemen are indeed the “New wine in an old bottle” that fits the prescription for a new generation of revivalists. They bridge the gap between the music of the old-timey speakeasies and juke joints with the voice of a new generation by blending the timeless traditions of Americana and Western Swing with a uniquely hot and fresh flavor that transcends genre. Their acoustic brass ‘n’ brew-grass tunes include raucous barnburners and heart-breaking ballads that continue to intoxicate audiences with performances of the highest spirits. Whether on the river or on the rug, Caleb & the Gents are here to serve and sweep you off your feet, so drink ‘em down and get ready to dance!
They’re setting up their strings and glasses to toast what promises to be a year worth celebrating. Caleb and the Gents are excited to continue their travels on tours packed with performances at countless locations with equally energetic atmospheres. Caleb Warren and the Perfect Gentlemen is led by the compelling crooner Caleb Warren, whose engaging lyrics and rhythm guitar keeps the audience swingin’ and swayin’. He’s accompanied by Colt Bowen (percussion), Dave Aitken (lead guitar and banjo), Jenna Mobley (fiddle), Robert Green (trumpet), and their newest member Ian Blanton (upright bass).
Caleb Warren hails from Chattanooga, TN while the rest of the band is based in Atlanta, GA. A few of their influences include Django Reinhardt, Jimmie Rodgers, and Tampa Red. Their inspiring ability to communicate and stay in sync, despite their technical complexity, is only surpassed by their strong solos and independent personalities that come across in their performances as individuals and a lively unified organism with a truly organic sound.
So if you can swing it, come early, stay late, and don your dancing shoes, and spend a night of entertainment with this toe-tappin’, foot-stompin’, genre bendin’, string strummin’ fusion band. They’re rough and rowdy, technical and tight, but never ever high-strung. These tunes will have you cutting a rug before you know it. Every chance they get to churn out tunes, they’re always set up and ready to go. They’re a rare vintage ripped, ready, and rarin’ to exercise and celebrate the right to perform their craft.
