The group will be performing a mix of recognizable jazz standards and time-tested originals. Tickets are $8 in advance or $10 at the door.

1 part infectious enthusiasm - 1 part vintage hot club jazz - 1 part modern songwriting - 1 part hot picking swing. Shake with ice and you've got The Gentlemen's Anti-Temperance League.

The GATL plays jazz originals. Modern songs under an old-time facade. It’s music your granddad would listen to, if your granddad was a time-traveler from 2050 with a hankering for vintage cocktails and hot jazz. It’s hot, infectious, and emotional. Kind of like that on-and-off relationship you had in your early twenties, but a lot more grounded.
Six years, five albums, and hundreds of shows have honed GATL into a finely tuned machine— greased with whiskey, regular exercise, and a taste for wheels on pavement.

Tickets are $15 in advance or $20 at the door. Tickets are available through Eventbrite or Hardts Music, 115 East 3rd St in Winona.
