The Country Gentlemen - Live 1961

Here is a live show of the Country Gentlemen at the Shamrock Room in the West End Shopping Center in Falls Church, VA on December 1, 1961. The interesting thing about this show is that the banjo player is Walter Hensley, not Eddie Adcock. I hope all you Gentlemen fans will enjoy this show. I'm sorry to say that most of the stage talk was not recorded, just the music.
