WILL WEST – Live via YouTube
Nov 4 @ 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm
Will West and company make their audiences feel comfortable, whether they’re performing for thousands at a music festival or a handful of listeners at an intimate venue.
It’s hard to describe Will’s style with just a few words. His shows continue evolve and change from gig to gig.
The son of a fiddle player, Will grew up in rural eastern North Carolina. He was inspired by his parent’s vast record collection and began playing guitar when he was 11 years old. His first loves were old-time blues and heavy metal music.
In 2002, Will loaded up his guitar, his dog and a handful of original tunes and moved to Portland, Oregon and has been on a steady rise in the rich Northwest music scene.
Will released his latest album Transitions (side a) in July 2019. The album is a collection of songs touching on rock, pop, groove and big horn sounds, and features a collection of incredible Portland musicians.

ONYX CLUB BOYS – Live via YouTube
Nov 18 @ 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm

Onyx Club Boys is an acoustic string band (violin, guitar, upright bass and drums) rooted in Django Reinhardt’s Gypsy Jazz sounds of 1930’s Paris, and Stuff Smith’s New York City Swing. However, being from 21st Century North Carolina, their diverse influences take the music beyond borders. It’s a trip around the world, which will make you swoon, tap your feet and realize how universally similar music really is.

The band just released their newest album, Million Color Vision, in 2018. It features catchy originals along with a few classics, and was carefully crafted and recorded over the last few years.

Among the many shows, The Onyx Club Boys have appeared at Shakori Hills Festival, Festival for the Eno, Haw River Ballroom, Cat’s Cradle, Raleigh First Night, Artsplosure, the NC Museum of Art, WUNC’s Back Porch Music at American Tobacco Campus Durham, Carrboro Django Reinhardt Festival and the National Gallery of Art in Washington, DC.

Members have played in bands such as The Squirrel Nut Zippers, The Old Ceremony, Dialli Cissokho and Kaira Ba, and the Paperhand Puppet Intervention band.
