What's the Word?
"In a city which only seems to pay attention to jazz, funk, and beloved brass bands, these guys bring an overdue sound to New Orleans. Not quite country or bluegrass, the necessary gentlemen combine great music with words that gain meaning with each listen. The singers voices sound great together and the woman is fantastic. Can't wait for more music!"
"[The Necessary Gentlemen] bring soulful original songs straight from the heart that capture the essence of love lost and gained, from dreams to gritty, Mississippi-soaked reality. The melodies of singer-songwriter Jon Skvarka take the ears and mind on a journey through whiskey and heart-ache with just enough New Orleans' soul to mellow the twang of their country sound."
