Working Class Hussys to Play Grounds For Sculpture, 6/13
New Jersey's Working Class Hussys has announced a special concert at one of New Jersey's premiere cultural attractions. On Friday, June 13 the band will play the Grounds For Sculpture at 7:30 pm, rain or shine. Working Class Hussys will play their unique style of alternative rock with a Southern blend. The band will also preview songs from their soon to be released full length album Diesel Tunes. Written by prolific songwriter and lead singer Ian Patrick Gentles, the songs on Diesel Tunes cover a wide emotional and musical spectrum. The album displays the unique vision of a band who has taken their musical influences (alternative rock, classic 70's and southern rock) and created a sound all their own. Diesel Tunes will be available on Amazon.com and iTunes on July 18, 2014.
Part of the Courtyard Concert Series, the performance will be held during the largest and most significant exhibition in Grounds For Sculpture history, a presentation of work by it's founder, Seward Johnson. Seward Johnson: The Retrospective will feature more than 287 works including the acclaimed Forever Marilyn.
Tickets are $15.00 in advance/includes park admission; $18.00 day of show/includes park admission after 5pm. To purchase call 609-586-0616.

Working Class Hussys is an eight member ensemble whose current vision is to bring the sound of three part vocal harmonies together with Ian's strong lead vocal in a rock band setting. Two dueling lead guitars decorate the sound with recognizably rock emphasis. All that combined with a strong rhythm section give the band a unique and powerful "wall of sound." The band features Ian Patrick Gentles (lead singer, acoustic rhythm guitar), Anthony Mann (drums), Brian Casale (electric bass), Mike McClellan (lead guitar), Gregory Winka (lead guitar) and vocalists Patti Lynn, Amanda During and Ann Shi.
Ian Patrick Gentles is a singer/songwriter who after fronting several bands across the country, has settled down in central New Jersey. He built a home studio and recorded several hundred original songs. This is where he created the idea of Working Class Hussys and how he would bring his music and vision to the world. His songwriting takes influences from many genres ranging from rock, blues, folk, country, pop and even Broadway show tunes. Working Class Hussys have played festivals and venues in New York City, Philadelphia and New Jersey. Their songs have been played on FM and worldwide internet radio, including their track "Goin' For A Ride" from Diesel Tunes.
