Good-bye 2016! Hello new year!

2016 has been noteworthy for Matt's Blues. I've made many friends, played a lot of places, painted a few pianos, traveled a little, and learned so much along the way. I've even begun the journey of becoming a piano technician (another lifetime pursuit)

John Lennon once said, "the more I see, the less I know for sure," and those words are pretty relevant. My knowledge of music, pianos, and life seems to come with an ever-increasing knowledge of what I don't know, and that's pretty humbling. Well, enough philosophy for now.

Right now, I'm pretty psyched about playing the Lancaster Roots and Blues Festival in February. I'm so thrilled to be a part of this! (Check out my artist bio here)

Also, I'm syndicated! Andy at Positive Johnstown was nice enough to mention me in his blog.

Lastly, I've been working on my Texas boogie...

I'm looking forward to being back in Johnstown, PA at the PRESS Bistro on January 21st and playing some more rock gigs with Cuzzin Eddy.

There's more cookin' that I can't announce yet, so stay tuned! Peace, love, and BLUES!!!

A Very Fine Weekend

I'd really like to thank everyone who helped me make this weekend a blast. It started with band practice, then a roadtrip to Ocean City, MD to play at the ribbon-cutting for T.C. Studios.

Jamie, Ali, Jason, Frankie, and JR... you guys rock!

The piano loves to travel!

Then, it was back to West Virginia to play with the David D. Band and cap off several months of fine Saturday nights at the Regatta Bar & Grille.

Now, I'm playing keys with Cuzzin Eddy, and booking as Matt's Blues for anyone who wants the low-down old-time PieAnna experience. Stay tuned!
