Onyx Club Boys is an acoustic string band (violin, guitar, upright bass, drums, and vocals) rooted in the Gypsy Jazz sounds of 1930’s Paris. 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.
100% genuine. No backing tracks necessary! “Curiously exotic, yet pleasantly familiar.”
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. Appearances have included Shakori Hills Festival, Haw River Ballroom, Cat’s Cradle, Raleigh First Night, and many more.
“The cool dexterity of their playing binds together the broad catalog.”
– Grayson Currin, music editor Indy Weekly
