They can sing. They can dance. They”re cute, and they”re all male. No, it”s not “N Sync they”re the Gentlemen, more commonly known as the G-Men and quite frankly, these guys are capable of running “N Sync right off of the stage. The G-Men are among the best of the University”s all-male a cappella groups, and tomorrow night marks their seventh annual performance here.

The G-men began in 1995 with a few dynamic male voices and a dream: To be “truly entertaining.” According to group member Corey Slutsky, “[the G-men] are a performance group not just people singing onstage.”

With a repertoire of songs ranging from Queen”s “This Thing Called Love” to Everclear”s hit song “AM Radio,” the G-men have all-around excellent sound and spirited style. “[We will be performing] lots of new stuff and lots of old stuff,” says group member Bob Humbracht. “We try to vary our repertoire as much as possible.”

Just returning from a tour in North Carolina and Virginia, and in the process of creating a CD that will be released in May, these men are quite busy. Future plans also include a performance at the University Students against Cancer benefit, to be held on March 19th.

The G-Men work hard to bring fun a cappella to the University campus, to get the audience involved, and to just have a good time. They will be holding auditions at the end of the semester for new members, and urge interested participants and fans alike to check out their website: http://www.umich.edu/gmen.

Another a cappella group, the University of Pittsburgh Pendulums, will be opening for the Gentleman, and the show should provide members of the Ann Arbor community with a fun night filled with music and laughs.

Their concert begins at 8 p.m. tomorrow and will be held in Angell Hall, Auditorium A. Tickets are $6 apiece, and will be available at the door. Come out and join the G-Men for an evening of musical entertainment and be sure to stay around after the show in order to purchase their CD, which will be made available after the show.
