Excellent Gentlemen / The Best Dancers says
Hands down two of our favorite Portland groups are going to be collaborting on one special night! It's sure to be a funky, groovy, hug filled pants party! Come dance with us! These fellas know how to get down!

The Gents:

Growing up together in New York forged a bond between these musicians that is evident in their lock-tight pockets and seemingly telepathic stage interactions. From their roots in the East coast neo-soul and hip-hop communities, these friends have forged a signature sound that is steeped in sweet soulfulness and ferocious grooves.

Excellent Gentlemen plays danceable, vocal Soul R&B music. Think: 70's block parties and golden-age hip-hop records. Their music stands for positivity, love, happiness and getting sexy; this is definitely NOT the drudgery of mediocre Indie-Rock. On the strength of their incredible live show, the independently-run band has ignited an adoring fan base and has become THE hot touring funk act in the Pacific Northwest.


The Best Dancers:

Electro-Dance trio from Portland, OR.
Funky beats. Sexy sounds. Dance music. Love.

In 2010 Franny and Bobby Govea moved to Portland, Oregon and formed The Best Dancers, combining elements of “traditional” electronic music with
notable influences of hiphop, funk, rock, and improvisation. Earlier this year the brothers added veteran saxophone player Mark Macomber (Basin & Range, Sharon Is Karen) to the group, and now play as a live band.
