Working Class Hussys is an original alternative rock band with a southern blend. Lynyrd Skynyrd meets the Beatles.
The band is led by Ian Patrick Gentles, (formerly of Uncle Butch in NYC and Boston), along with four other band members. The Working Class Hussys played locally in New Jersey and Pennsylvania with some success when in 2003, Gentles decided to put the live band on ice so he could go into the studio to write. Now, Gentles brings back the live band to Nashville.
December 2010 was a busy month for Gentles, who released a new CD called Diary of A Blue Collar Cracker, a 10 song set of demos for the band. He also re-released the first CD of demos from before called Urban Country. Both are now available on iTunes.The band is currently working on a set of songs about driving and life on the road, based on recent songs from Gentles' experience driving a truck to make ends meet while pursuing his musical career.
