Gentleman's Rule is the "next generation of vocal entertainment."
Gentleman's Rule is an exciting 7 man a cappella group based out of Chicago heralded as "the next generation of vocal entertainment."
Founded in Bloomington, IN in 2012, G-Rule stepped on the scene with their viral hit "The Pachanelly Canon" which was featured on top websites such as Mashable, BuzzFeed, The Daily What, and On Air with Ryan Seacrest. After recording their debut album, Act Accordingly, in the summer of 2012, the gentlemen had their first performance during the halftime show of the Chicago Bears vs. Carolina Panthers game at Soldier Field. They then began a 16 show run at Chicago's acclaimed Royal George Theatre, immediately followed by a coast to coast national tour.
In the fall of 2013, the group recorded a National Television special for PBS at the Star Plaza Theatre in Merrillville, IN, which was followed by an appearance on the nationally televised Homeward Bound Telethon, and a Canada Tour. The PBS special Gentleman's Rule: Live at the Star Plaza premiered across the country in March of 2014 and resulted in a second national tour that included stops at the world famous Greek Theatre in Los Angeles and the historic Wolf Trap Center for the Performing Arts in the Washington, D.C. Metropolitan Area.
After making their European debut with shows in the Netherlands and Belgium, Gentleman’s Rule released their third album, THE WALK, on October 2nd of 2015. THE WALK has already garnered massive attention and rave reviews from major news outlets in the months prior to its release. The first single from the album, “FourFiveSeconds”, was deemed “gorgeous” by Billboard and “The only cover of ‘FourFiveSeconds’ you need to hear” by MTV, while also being featured by CapitalFM in the UK, Elle Magazine in France, and Universal Music in Japan. “FourFiveSeconds” reached the Top 20 on iTunes in Cape Verde, and has been a crowd favorite of 2015. The album’s second single, “Trap Queen”, was a genre defying moment in the a cappella world as GR remixed the Fetty Wap smash hit and received recognition from the Huffington Post, Shazam, and Noisey. The group released their version of the summer standout “Cheerleader” as the album’s third single in early July, and not only has the video gained more than 100,000 views on YouTube, it was chosen by Dick Clark Productions to be in a video montage of the year’s best YouTube covers on the 2015 Streamy Awards, live on Vh1.
