Court Square Theater hosts The Country Gentlemen Tribute Band on March 7
The bluegrass legacy of the popular Country Gentlemen sound continues with The Country Gentlemen Tribute Band. Following much urging and support from friends, family, fellow musicians and promoters alike, the band decided to carry on under its new name to honor the memory of long-time member Bill Yates.
The current lineup includes: Mike Phipps on guitar and “Charlie Waller” sound-alike vocals, David Propst on mandolin and vocals, Lywood Lunsford on banjo and vocals, Eric Troutman on upright bass and vocals, and Geoff Gay on dobro and vocals. The band aims to perform in tribute as closely as possible the tunes from yesteryear thought to be long lost for the ages, as they attempt to recreate each tune, vocally and musically as it was originally performed.
Court Square Theater hosts The Country Gentlemen Tribute Band Saturday, March 7. Doors open at 6 pm, with the show beginning at 7 pm. Tickets are $13 advance and $16 at the door. For more information and to purchase tickets, visit valleyarts.org or call 540.433.9189.
