2:28 – Birthday Bash at Bobby T’s

Feb 12, 2015   //   by Matthew   //   News  //  No Comments

Truthfully, one never knows what might happen at a show like this. Rumor has it that there will be some sit-ins, some bluegrass jamming, some revelry, the chicken-wing potential is very high.

Come down to Bobby T’s Sports Grill on February 28th, and get a slice of Funtime birthday pie.

We had such a blast last time around, Maggie asked us to come back for another Christmas party!

Fun at Jugs and Mugs!

Oct 25, 2013   //   by Matthew   //   News  //  No Comments


What a fun two nights at Albany’s newest hot spot: Jugs and Mugs

I sample some delicious ciders, busted out some new tunes, had a wonderful sit-in and generally had a great time hanging around with the cast and crew of this new downtown place!

I’ll be back next week on Wednesday for a little more of the same!

7 PM, October 30th, come get some pre-Halloween yummies and sample the fine beers on tap — I’ll be hosting my brand of trivia and playing a few sets after the champion of trivia is crowned!

It was fun last week, so we can safely assume it will be again!

See you Wednesday at Jugs & Mugs!

(Controlled) Fire on Blue Mountain

Oct 16, 2013   //   by Matthew   //   News  //  No Comments


Just wanted to take a quick moment to thank my friends at Blue Mountain – playing at the Slopeside Bar & Grill was easily one of the coolest gigs I have ever played.

The views over the valley, the good vibe, and echoing acoustics all contribute to making this place an incredible experience for a wandering minstrel like myself.

I hope to feel the mountain breeze again, and pick out a few more chords under that exquisite pergola when the snow starts falling!


Pennsylvania Polka!

Oct 16, 2013   //   by Matthew   //   News  //  No Comments

Strike up the music, the band has begun – it’s the Pennsylvania Polka!

Last weekend was an epic romp through the greater Allentown area. The factories were not being shut down, but I was there at The Gin Mill of Northhampton & the breathtaking Blue Mountain Ski Area in scenic Palmerton Pennsylvania.

These two forays into the Keystone state are just the beginning!

This weekend I march into Otto’ Riverview Bar & Grill — a place that has the coolest urinal that I have ever pissed into.

This place is going to be packed, so hopefully, we’ll be making this a regular thing down in my home away from home in Lock Haven!

See you people this weekend!




Oct 23/24th at brand new JUGS & MUGS

Oct 7, 2013   //   by Matthew   //   News  //  No Comments

Hey y’all — some fun stuff coming up the pipe here!  After I get back from getting keystoned with a handful of shows in Pennsylvania — I’m back in the heart of Albany for a two-day engagement at the newly opened Jugs & Mugs. Don’t let the name fool you, this place is neither a dive nor a strip club.

Chef Chick Hawksley

Even the chef/general manager has to take time to explain: here. Chick is an incredible chef, and he’s got a passion for beer, fun, and music too. Given the amount of press this place is getting, I am very exciting to announce my little bits coming up:

Wednesday, Oct 23rd, I’ll have my keyboard in tow for a fun night of trivia!  I’ll be hosting, performing, and combining the two into an awesome piano bar/name-that-tune/trivia funtime challenge! Get there with your team at 7 PM for some tasty beers, dinner & prizes (if you know your stuff!)

Hang around on Thursday, Oct. 24th where I’ll have my guitar in tow for some classic Matthew Pryce acoustic plus sets!

See you guys at Jugs & Mugs in a few weeks!


Everybody must get KEYstone’d!!!

Time to take the FUN.BUS on the road! I’m heading to Pennsylvania this coming week to play two shows in my second home state!

First up, The Gin Mill in Northampton Pa — can’t wait to rage up this great venue for the first time! That’s Friday 10.11 –

Saturday, I hit the slopes (well, The Slopeside Pub & Grill) at Blue Mountain Ski Area! One of the premiere ski locations in the Northeast, and Saturday evening, they’ll be dancing to my acoustic + flavor!

See you this weekend in Pennsylvania!
