Hello everyone!

We are very excited to announce the 3rd Annual Carrboro Django Reinhardt Festival, January 17-19, 2020, at Cat's Cradle Back Room, The Station, and Tandem Restaurant, all within a short walk in downtown Carrboro, NC.  

Onyx Club Boys will be performing on Saturday, January 18th, 2020 at Cat's Cradle Back Room at 9pm.  Opening band at 8pm, with a Lindy (Swing) Dance workshop at 8:30pm to get you ready to boogie all night! 
All ticketed events sold through 'em now, as all events sold out last year!


We have also been collaborating with Mandolin virtuoso Tony Williamson, who toured with legendary French violinist, Stephane Grappelli!  Tony will join Onyx Club Boys at Django Fest, and will also hold a Gypsy Jazz Mandolin workshop earlier in the day.  

Check out this video of what we do.....

We will also be performing together in Savannah, GA on December 14th at Randy's Picking Parlour.  Please tell your Georgia friends!
