The great thing about The Deadly Gentlemen is not their technical proficiency, —though these guys do have mad skills—it’s the music they create: joyful, playful, and often beautiful.

The great thing about The Deadly Gentlemen is not their technical proficiency, —though these guys do have mad skills—it’s the music they create: joyful, playful, and often beautiful. You could say they speak bluegrass with a rock and roll accent. Greg Liszt, banjo and vocals, earned a Ph.D. in Molecular Biology from MIT and immediately went on tour playing banjo for Bruce Springsteen. He currently tours with Crooked Still. Stash Wyslouch, guitar and vocals, brings a heavy-metal passion for raking on guitar and screaming in harmony. Dominick Leslie, mandolin and vocals, used to be a mandolin prodigy, but now that he’s turned 20, he’s just damn good. Mike Barnett, fiddle and vocals, started touring at 15 with bluegrass legend Jesse McReynolds and currently tours with the Tony Trischka Band and the David Grisman Quintet. Sam Grisman, double bass and vocals, first learned the ways of music from his father, David, and has been playing gigs all his life, fusing traditional bluegrass bass technique with an uncanny knack for finding just the right unexpected note. Here’s how the band describes their sound: “Instead of having a lead singer, we 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.”
