Perfect Gentlemen

Perfect Gentlemen were an R&B group from Boston, Massachusetts. They were formed by Maurice Starr (who discovered New Edition and New Kids on the Block) in 1988.

The original lineup consisted of Corey Blakely, Tyrone Sutton, and Maurice Starr Jr. (Maurice Starr's son). They toured the United States with New Kids on the Block.
In 1990, Perfect Gentlemen released their debut album, "Rated P.G." which peaked at #72 on the Billboard 200 chart and #39 on Billboard's R&B Albums chart.
The trio's first single and biggest hit to date, "Ooh La La (I Can't Get Over You)" peaked at #10 on the Billboard Hot 100 and #12 on Billboard's Hot Black Singles chart staying on the chart for 13 weeks.
The follow-up single, "One More Chance" peaked at #33 on Billboard's Hot Black Singles chart, staying on the chart for 9 weeks.

After Perfect Gentlemen's debut album was released, Tyrone Sutton left the group and Miles Wheeler & Stephen Starr (Maurice's brother) joined the group, making it a quartet.

In 1993, Perfect Gentlemen released their self-titled album which didn't appear to make the charts at all.
The only singles released:  "Don't Forget to Call" and "I Need You" failed to make any impact on the charts and after that, the group faded into obscurity

These days, the guys have kept themselves busy. Corey joined the U.S. military. Miles goes under the name "Masspike" and has released 5 mixtapes.

Maurice and Stephen have started the band, The Muzik Makerz. Tyrone started his own clothing line called Breakfast Club.
