Dear Onyx Fam!  

We are excited to announce a bunch of upcoming shows in Chapel Hill, Raleigh, Greensboro, and more!  We're also starting a summer residency at Carrboro's Oak Leaf Restaurant starting June 4.  Check out all the details under the SHOWS tab of our website, and make your calendars!
 

The Gyspy Jazz Jam at The Station in Carrboro has been a big success.  Folks bring an acoustic instrument and a folding chair, and play Django Music in a fun and supportive environment.  Come play or just listen every other Sunday from 3-5pm, with the next one being June 2nd.  

Plans for the Carrboro Django Reinhardt Festival are coming together nicely.  We're expanding the festival to 3 days....January 17, 18, and 19, 2020 and Cat's Cradle Back Room and The Station.  We'll kick things off with a jam on opening night, followed by two days of workshops and featured concerts.  Workshops will be expanded to include more instruments (guitar, violin, mandolin, rhythm/drums), topics, and teachers.  The featured concerts shouldn't be missed!

Thanks for your support!
