With an extraordinary origin story starting out as members of the Rock n' Roll Hall of Fame band "The Four Seasons", Landon Beard, Todd Fournier and brothers Brian Brigham and Brandon Brigham were almost predestined to become the MODERN voices of yesterday.  They were all handpicked by the legendary Frankie Valli where they thrilled audiences all over the world with the music icon.  After well over a decade together, Valli graciously gave his blessing to start their own group.  This marked a significant turning point in their careers, allowing them to showcase their own talents and carve out a unique place in the music industry.

Individually, each member possesses their own distinctive voice and charismatic charm.  Together, their harmonies are unparalleled with seamless transitioning between genres and eras that transcend time.  What sets "TMG" apart is their ability to bridge the gap between generations by breathing new life into the timeless classic hits with a genuine camaraderie and music pedigree that features their own artistic prowess.

They've had the honor to share the stage with many of their musical heroes including The Beach Boys, The Manhattan Transfer, Smokey Robinson and most recently opening for Lionel Richie in Las Vegas, Doja Cat at The Atlantis Resort Bahamas for New Years and for Sheena Easton.  They've performed for presidents of The United States and for Prince William of Wales at the esteemed Arts Club in London.  

They've performed on the world's biggest stages including multiple concert tours in London, England at Royal Albert Hall with the London Symphony Orchestra, The O2 Arena, Hampton Court and BBC Proms in the park for over 40,000 people.  They represented their country on "A Capitol Fourth" in Washington D.C. with Michael McDonald, Patti LaBelle, John Williams and others, as well as two limited engagements on the Broadway stage.  They've toured all over the U.S., Canada, U.K., Asia, Israel, Italy, Australia, and New Zealand.  As favorites of PBS audiences, they've starred on 3 nationwide specials and headlined in Las Vegas as well as recently having their own residency in Atlantic City, NJ.

"TMG" have released 3 studio albums which include The Modern Gentlemen: Volume 1.  Their holiday album, "You Make It Feel Like Christmas" recorded at the iconic Village Studios in LA and distributed by The Orchard (Sony Music) featuring original songs written by multi-platinum, award winning songwriters as well as many familiar classics.  Also available digitally for the holiday season is a very special collaboration with the hit making songwriter and pianist, Jim Brickman entitled, "Old Fashioned Christmas".  Their newest album, "Happiest Days" recreates some of their all-time favorite songs including the original title track of the album elevating their sound to an entirely new level.

THE MODERN GENTLEMEN feel very fortunate to have been a part of one of the biggest and most influential American bands of all-time. With their perfect blend of originality mixed with throwback nostalgia, they continue to create unforgettable live experiences garnering multiple standing ovations in prestigious performing arts centers and showrooms all over the world.
