About the Artist(s)
The Rambling Gentlemen are a Vancouver based vocal duo with guitar accompaniment, who play traditional jazz standards in the style of the 1930s and 40s. Their arrangement of standards are inspired by groups and individual artists such as the Mills Brothers, Guy Lombardo & His Royal Canadians, Al Bowlly, and so on.
The band is led by Emmett Martin Hatlelid, a young and up-coming jazz vocalist with a love for the traditional jazz styles. On vocals and trombone is Brad Shigeta, a former member of the Duke Ellington Orchestra who’s traveled the world performing this music since his early twenties. On guitar accompaniment is Noah Gotfrit, a young musician who has toured extensively across Europe, Western Canada and the United States with a wide variety of musical acts.
