Hats Off Gentlemen It's Adequate describes themselves as a rock/acoustic rock band from London featuring rock flute. Did you catch that? That's three "rock", one "flute" and one "acoustic" to describe their sound. The name itself is a mouthful but after a few listens to their sound you'll recognize that a word like "adequate" doesn't really do them justice. It's a diverse and original sound, but offers a good feeling of familiarity for people who are fans of artists like Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, Jimi Hendrix, Queen, Jethro Tull, and countless others who have blazed their own trail in the wide world of rock and roll music.
Perhaps the best description comes from the band's own bio that states "Hats Off Gentlemen It's Adequate play music ranging from haunting acoustic melancholia and rock originals, to flute-led covers of Hendrix, Guns and Roses, Pink Floyd, and Brahms."
