Perfect Gentlemen were an American trio of teen R&B vocalists formed under the direction of Maurice Starr, who discovered New Edition and New Kids on the Block.

Starr put the group together in Boston in 1988, and had them tour the U.S opening for the New Kids.[1] An album and a video followed, and the group scored a hit single with 1990's "Ooh La La (I Can't Get Over You)", which peaked at #10 on the Billboard Hot 100 and #12 on the R&B/Hip Hop charts.[2]

After the group's debut album, there were some member changes as Tyrone Sutton left the group, while Miles Masspike Miles Wheeler joined the group as the lead singer while Stephen Reeves later joined the group, making it a quartet. As a quartet the group released the album The Perfect Gentlemen in 1993, which featured the singles "Don't Forget To Call" and "I Need You."
