Falty and the Defects / Bio

Falty & the Defects like to play good old fashioned, hard swinging jazz and blues music for listening, or preferably, ass shaking audiences.

We play everything from sultry and slow, to energetic and peppy, we have a way of getting people to start to tap their foot, or start to shake uncontrollably. DANCING! We have an infectious energy that spreads from the stage to the audience almost from the first down beat. We are a dance band, primarily, but even listening audiences will be drawn in by our instrumentation, dynamics, and musicality.

We blend beautifully into any type of event. From a wedding, to a swing dance, to a cooperate event, to bar, to a sold out theater, to a funeral. We are all pros, ready to make sweet and/or hot music for you.
