The Deadly Gentlemen started out a few years ago as an experimental spoken word bluegrass band, but changed the game plan this time around. Now they mostly play epic folk and grasscore. They have a brand new, unreleased CD called Carry Me To Home. There are five band members: Greg Liszt, banjo and vocals; Stash Wyslouch, guitar and vocals; Mike Barnett, fiddle and vocals; Dominick Leslie, mandolin and vocals; and Sam Grisman, double bass and vocals. Instead of having a lead singer, they use a nonstop orchestration of somewhat unconventional vocals, with everybody in the band doing everything they can. Expect a lot of three-part harmony singing, group shouting, really dense rhymes and an almost rap-like phrasing.
