The Gentlemen's Anti-Temperance League is a swing sextet from Minneapolis,
Minnesota. A melting pot of hot jazz, swing, and latin rhythms, brought to a boil by soaring
vocals and endless energy. Their second album, "Masquerade" was released in 2017. GATL's second full-length album is a masterful mix of old-time hot jazz and
latin rhythms, held together by modern songwriting and layered stories.
We are lucky enough to get them because they are passing through the area on the way to other gigs. Come join us for this rare BIG BAND Thursday after-work show. No admission fee.
What the critics say about GATL's music:
“The Gentlemen’s Anti-Temperance League take things all the way back to the 1930s
with their Django Reinhardt-influenced gypsy jazz, and they do it damn well.”
-Andrea Swensson, The Current
"... takes the best style of music from each decade after Prohibition and creates a
unique musical style."
“Some would call it “old-timey,” while others would argue “timeless.’’
