Gentlemen Callers of LA
Second Weekend June 29 - July 2
Green Queen Music recording artists THE GENTLEMEN CALLERS of LOS ANGELES is the latest project from the writing and production partnership of Atom Smith and Buck Down. Their nearly 2 decade long career together has spanned almost a dozen albums, as well as multiple projects for film, television, and performance, including the world renown MUTAYTOR, a 20 piece traveling tribal electro circus born in the Black Rock Desert over a decade ago.
In a short period of time, THE GENTLEMEN CALLERS of LOS ANGELES have established themselves globally as the world’s premiere American original electroswing act, and their music has become a staple of electroswing DJs all over the world.
They currently have several releases on UK based GREEN QUEEN MUSIC and have been featured on countless compilations. In December of 2014, the duo headed out on their first headlining tour of Europe in December of 2014, a mere 11 months after beginning this new project. They have logged multiple festival appearances at GLASTONBURY, LIGHTNING IN A BOTTLE, BURNING MAN, & ELECTRIC FOREST among others.
Their bombastic live shows effortlessly slide between readings of their own original material as well as some of the best in cutting edge, modern vintage music curated from around the world, seamlessly blending 1920’s big band, manouche, hip hop, house, balkan and American dust bowl era gospel in a heady cocktail of big bass rapturous, infectious fun.
Always impeccably dressed, The Gentlemen are known for their clinical attention to detail when it comes to production and performance, and their shows reflect thousands of hours of work spent perfecting the art of driving a dance floor crazy.
