From their own Bluegrass Shack in the 1970s to the stages of some of the biggest festivals around the southeast, the Tennessee Gentlemen have kept it going for over 30 years. The group has captured individual and group awards from the Society for the Preservation of Bluegrass Music and made it to the cover of Bluegrass Unlimited. Although the members have changed through the years, they have managed to maintain their brand of bluegrass music. Donny Catron, who has one of the highest tenor voices around is one of the earliest members of the group. Donny has been singing lead and playing rhythm guitar for 25 years. Bass player and singer Doyle Catron provides the solid bass tempo that keeps the band in overdrive.  Sam Coffey is the group’s hard-driving banjo player who jumps in as their bass singer when needed. Kent Coffey rounds out the harmony vocals and keeps it in high gear with his mandolin playing. You can find out where the Gents are playing by visiting their website at: Tennessee Gentleman.
