Original show description below.

Please note: This is a Dance Floor/standing show.

The Onyx is an all black female six member music ensemble. This collective came together to solidify unity among women of color and to provide an artistic outlet for the female voice to be heard. Hailing from and recalling styles of Oakland, New York, Chicago, North Carolina, Cuba and Puerto Rico. 

This eclectic group brings r&b, rock, electronic and latin music to an electrifying peak that will have you on your feet!

Combined, the sextet is a force to be reckoned with. The simple existence of a band like this is rare, and in this political moment, revolutionary.
