Joy and her Sentimental Gentlemen (Sent Gents if the marquee is small or if your tongue is thick) draw from a broad swath of music from 40’s swing and jump to 60’s country, but what unifies it all is singer Joy Dorsey’s affectless musicality, and the hot and tasty pedal steel and Telecaster of Russ Blake and Ian Miller. Drummer Don Lawry and bassist Brent Martens keep the train on the tracks.
