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.
