His band UltraFaux has performed extensively since their first tour in 2014 including performances at The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, Django By The Sea, Midwest Gypsy Swing Festival, Charm City Django Jazz Festival, The French Embassy, IMT Folk Series, Napa Valley Jazz Society, Le Quecum Bar London, and the prestigious Festival Django Reinhardt in France.

Lon Eldridge is often said to have talent and style well beyond his years. His warm and infectious musicality is sure keep you tuned in throughout the night, coupling masterful fingerstyle guitar with clever, brilliant vocals. You'll swear there's more than one person playing on stage! Lon has toured both the USA and Europe, taking his unique blend of traditional pre-war blues, swing, and ragtime to whole new audiences. This is a show (and a moustache) you definitely don't want to miss!
Lon began playing guitar at the age of thirteen, and it quickly grew into a passion and an obsession. Lon's playing style is one of intricate fingerstyle guitar work, evoking the spirits of Mississippi John Hurt, Robert Johnson, Blind Blake and countless other musical masters. Alongside this is a calm, cool stage demeanor that would lead you to believe he's actually sitting in an arm chair in your living room, rather than on a stage. An avid collector of 78rpm records, Lon spends most of his free time tucked away with his ear glued to a Victrola horn.
