Who are the Gents?

And what is with those silly uniforms?

​The Gentlemen of the College were founded in the spring of 1990 at the College of William and Mary by several students who held a common passion for barbershop music. While the original group only focused on barbershop quartet singing, its current repertoire includes everything from motown to alternative rock to pop.

Over the last three decades, the Gentlemen have performed at many notable venues, including the White House, the United States Capitol, the National Constitution Center, the Waldorf Astoria and the Greenbrier Hotel. The group has entertained dignitaries and politicians from the Governor of Virginia to the Queen of England and appeared on television shows like "The Price is Right" and ABC News "Good Morning Charleston". Every year, the Gentlemen look forward to performing for on-campus venues as well as maintaining a regular performance for Colonial Williamsburg's Christmas Festivities in December.


During the school year, the Gentlemen sing for a variety of philanthropic events and celebrations. In addition to their concerts and gigs, the Gentlemen take annual tours each Spring. Tours have taken the group overseas to the Bahamas, Hawaii, Costa Rica, Puerto Rico, as well as all over the continental United States.
