The Gentleman Outfit plays intimate, acoustic show 7

The soulful lyrics of Bruno Mars bounced off the walls of the Campus Center in the form of acoustic harmonies. On Wednesday, February 27, Jesse McCullagh and Jim LeSuer of The Gentleman Outfit performed a mix of original songs as well as covers of many well-known tunes.

Sara Barbosa notes that while she originally did not come for the event, she appreciated the show.

“I was actually at the Campus Center to meet up with a friend but ended up staying because I enjoyed the live music,” said Barbosa.

The Gentleman Outfit is a Boston-based duo that combines acoustics and rock for a balanced tune. Using a guitar and a djembe (African drum), they engaged the audience by asking for requests. The duo played songs such as “Rolling in the Deep” by Adele and “Some Nights” by Fun.

While the pair was very energetic and played popular, upbeat music, they also played alternative songs.

“My favorite song that they sang was Boys Like Girls’ ‘Two Is Better than One’,” said Barbosa.

Overall, The Gentleman Outfit successfully lived up to its acoustic rock image. Barbosa looks forward to attending similar events such as this as well as other types of events.

“I would like to see more poetry and music, and more talent shows,” she said.

The Gentleman Outfit released “Fighting For Light” on June 16, 2012. The albums features six songs and is available for $5.94 on iTunes.
“Fighting For Light” consists of original material, and for less than $6, it’s a good deal for any fan of upbeat, relaxed alternative, acoustic rock.

Songs such as “Halfway Home” and “All I Need” are well-constructed and well-sung. The vocals match the instruments perfectly
and bring to mind the likes of Jason Mraz, John Mayer, and even Third Eye Blind.

The tracks off “Fighting For Light” would be ideal background music for study sessions and it would not be strange to be heard while sipping a latte in Starbucks.

Supporting local musicians is important and The Gentleman Outfit offer vibrant original tracks as well as fresh takes on popular hits. This Boston band just might have a shot at making it big.
