*****************************************************************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 cool dexterity of their playing binds together the broad catalog"  
- Grayson Currin, music editor Indy Week, NC 


The band released their new 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.  Available at live shows and on our website.
