Inspired by the legacy of legendary Sinti guitarist Django Reinhardt, the music is driven by swinging and grooving rhythm guitar which functions as a vehicle for improvisation. They combine an eclectic mix of high energy swing, latin grooves, virtuosic fast tempo tunes and luscious ballads. Find them at the confluence of the old and the new.

Justin Duhaime is a passionate guitarist, composer, and burgeoning singer with a deep commitment to music. He is the recipient of the Ottawa Arts Council’s 2018 RBC Emerging Artist Award, the first musician to ever receive the award. As a freelance musician, Duhaime has performed in a wide array of musical styles including jazz, manouche, rock, pop, reggae, metal, and many more. Duhaime is sponsored by DK Guitars with The Black Sword. He has an instructional guitar book that was self-published in 2015 and countless videos published on YouTube. He is also a highly sought after bilingual guitar & music teacher.
