The Gentle Shades

Essentially forged in the creative nucleus of the Zappa class, the final incarnation of The Gentle Shades came together in January of 2010. Ever since, they have been toiling at dense and effervescent compositions that are as fun to listen to as they are to play. The members of the band - John, Matt, James, and Karl - listen to a variety of music and one of the goals is to represent that eclecticism through their own interpretation. Easily at home in thoroughly-composed or improvisational environments, The Gentle Shades can heartily guarantee one simple yet all-important thing: they will kick ass. The band is currently hard at work on their first full-length album, The Broken Gnome.
