Boston synth-rockers, Gentlemen Hall are not slaves to the keyboard…all members are Berklee College of Music graduates, and play multiple instruments. In 2009 MTV awarded them the Video Music Award (VMA) for “Best Breakout Boston Artist.” In 2010 the Boston Phoenix named them “Best New Local Act.” Gentlemen Hall has shared the stage with the likes of Black Eyed Peas, Nicki Minaj, One Republic, Britney Spears, Lil’ Wayne, Rihanna, Swizz Beatz, LMFAO, Beyonce, Ke$ha, Cee-Lo Green, Taking Back Sunday, and All Time Low. They joined us before their show tomorrow night at DC9.

What is the best gig that you ever played/performed at?
Everywhere we’ve gone has been a really good time but it seems like no matter where it is, house parties are almost always the best. There are no age limits, rules, agitated bouncers, hang-ups about what is acceptable behavior. Just a ton of people enjoying a great experience together.
What is the best gig you have ever been to?
Wow, that’s a toughie. As a collective group, probably Muse last year. Talk about top-notch musicians, light show and stage presence.
Gig you would most like to play?
Anywhere the vibe and the acts are great. Outdoor shows are always fun.
What would be the lineup for your dream gig?
We’d be opening for The Beatles, and it would be in outer space.
Catch Gentleman Hall tomorrow at DC9, D.C..
