Do you like old stuff? Or new stuff? Dancing? Beards? Then the New Old Fashioneds have at least one thing you may like. Made up of a few of Baltimore's best musicians, a few of its most notorious personalities, and some other people that definitely count, the New Old Fashioneds play traditional jazz songs designed to make you dance.

Led by Mike Faltesek, Falty & the Defects like to play, good old fashioned, hard swinging jazz and blues for listening, or preferably hip-shaking audiences. Falty & the Defects play everything, from sultry and slow to energetic and silly. Their infectious energy spreads from the stage to the audience from the first downbeat and has a way of getting people to start to tap their foot or to shake uncontrollably.
