Since our inception in late 2002, we Faux Frenchmen have had the pleasure of playing for hundreds of local, regional and national events. We’ve appeared at the Jazz at Chautauqua Festival in New York State, the Xerox Rochester (New York) International Jazz Festival, the Elkhart (Indiana) Jazz Festival, the Allegheny Jazz Party Festival (Cleveland), the International Association of Jazz Record Collectors convention (Louisville, Ky), Xavier University’s Masters of Swing Concert Series, Midpoint Music Festival, the Indianapolis Jazz Club Concerts, Westwood Presbyterian, St. John’s Unitarian Universalist and Christ Church Cathedral Church concerts, Cincinnati’s Fringe Festival, and many others.
We’ve been featured on the television and radio broadcasts of Michael Johnathon’s Woodsongs Old Time Radio Hour and WNKU-FM’s award-winning Studio 89 broadcast. We’ve opened concerts for national and international acts including Dan Hicks and His Hot Licks, Hot Buttered Rum, British folkies Tanna, and the Hot Club of Nashville.

We’ve provided music for Newport Aquarium and Cincinnati Playhouse in the Park television ads and the video game Bioshock. Our original music was featured in the Cincinnati Shakespeare Company’s production of “All’s Well That Ends Well” in 2009.
Our four CD releases have met with strong reviews on a national scale.
We’ve been nominated for a City Beat Music Award eleven consecutive years, winning the CEA award four times in the Jazz category.
In 2015 four of our original compositions were performed with the Cincinnati Chamber Orchestra.
We’ve played numerous wedding ceremonies and receptions, holiday, birthday, anniversaries and retirement parties, bar and bat mitzvahs, proposals of marriage and political and charitable fundraising events.
In addition to our quartet, we perform in trio and duo settings as appropriate to an event. For information or booking, contact George Cunningham at 513.541.3359 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
