Gentleman Brawlers - Brooklyn, NY

Gentleman Brawlers is a Brooklyn-based collective known for its electrifying live shows.

The invention of creative duo Becca Fox and Matt Walsh, Gentleman Brawlers has been

acclaimed by veteran BBC journalist Tom Robinson as “a virtuoso live band, grooving

together like a beautifully engineered machine.” The band is releasing a string of singles

through Six Degrees Music Distribution, offering a first taste of their debut album “Truth

and Magic,” dropping on the band’s own Brooklyn Fields imprint October 23rd.

With its crisp indie dance sound, the band has two distinct incarnations – live and in

studio – that elevate and inform each other. Through a sonic blend of disco-based

horn lines, sticky highlife guitar, and polyrhythms from West Africa, Trinidad, and Brazil,

Gentleman Brawlers’ live shows ignite a community-based, improvisational energy; in

studio, the band will often reimagine their songs through an EDM lens. Whether the

audience is on the dance floor or pressing play, Gentleman Brawlers always delivers an

electrifying, celebratory experience.

Dance is integral to the band’s onstage identity. A biracial multi-disciplinary artist

with dance performances at the Metropolitan Opera and numerous European TV ad

campaigns to her credit, Fox embodies what it means to be mixed, taking virtuosic dance

turns in an eclectic range of styles from rhythm tap and West African to pop-modern

contemporary. Fox brings a potent, incendiary presence to the stage that one reviewer

described as “...airborne...half-vocalist, half-bird.”

Gentleman Brawlers has honed its exuberant live show at Brooklyn Bowl, opening for

Cimafunk and Grammy-winners Fantastic Negrito and Los Amigos Invisibles; playing

Pier 1 on Manhattan’s Upper West Side for Summer on the Hudson, Dumbo’s Live at the

Archway concert series, Burlington Discover Jazz Festival (VT), Princeton University’s

Terrace F. Club (NJ), Musikfest (PA), Brooklyn’s Knitting Factory; and in a residency at the

McKittrick Hotel -- delivering unforgettable performances
