Nighttown says
AKA "Hot Club of Baltimore". Django Inspired Original Gypsy Jazz Group from Baltimore make their Cleveland debut at Nighttown!

Featuring: Michael Joseph Harris-guitar & composer, Sami Arefin-guitar, & Eddie Hrybyk-acoustic bass.

Ultrafaux performs original music which is influenced by Romani and Balkan folk, Jazz Manouche, swing, funk, blues, and French musette. The band is an acoustic powerhouse of two guitars and upright bass that has thrilled a wide variety of audiences from Jazz festivals to concert halls and rock clubs since their first CD was released in 2014. Sami Arefin and Michael Joseph Harris trade dazzling leads and harmonize together on rich gypsy-inspired melodies. The dynamic Eddie Hrybyk on upright bass holds down the steady swinging pulse and brings his passion for improvisation to the group. The same three musicians also serve as the core trio of Hot Club of Baltimore, a band specializing in Hot Jazz from the 30's and 40's in the style of Django Reinhardt.

Ultrafaux has been featured on WPFW, WTMD, WDVX, CBS News, in The Baltimore Sun, and Baltimore Style Magazine, to name a few. They have performed at the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in D.C., Charm City Django Jazz Festival, The French Embassy, twice on Knoxville’s Blue Plate Special, and were a featured act for the IMT Folk Series.

Ultrafaux will be featured at Django By The Sea in Maine October 8, 2016 with Rhythm Future Quartet, and at the Midwest Gypsy Swing Festival in Wisconsin September 10, 2016. Their song “Latcho Dromo” was chosen by acclaimed producer Jon Larsen to be featured on Django Festival #9, an annual compilation of the best gypsy jazz music worldwide released by Hot Club Records in 2015, and their video “Ultrafaux & Hot Club of Baltimore,” produced by Michael Joseph Harris has gained a wide audience with close to 50,000 views.
