Weekend of Music Fun (5.15.2015)

May 17, 2015   //   by Matthew   //   News  //  No Comments

Had a blast jamming out with King’s English at the world renowned JP Bruno’s Bar & Grill in Glens Falls, NY. I’d never played that stage before and I was anxious to get up there and drop some funk.

Thanks to Upst8musicfanzone‘s Stephanie for snapping this action shot. Her cousin Jordan was on drums that night, and we provided the thundering rhythm section while Chris & Matt provided a healthy smattering of guitar theatrics, keyboard harmony, and shimmering mandolin. Great time had by all, and JP Bruno’s has a top notch sound guy making sure feedback remains at zero, and everything sounds sharp & crispy. Thanks very much to Bob Finkle for running sound.




Today, the traveling Funtime jam moves on to Palmerton, Pa and stops at Slopeside Pub & Grill located atop Blue Mountain. I’ve played at Blue several times and it’s always a wonderful time. This time, I’ve got fiddler extraordinaire Katie de Palma with me to add some sultry violin harmony & blistering bluegrass solos to the mix. It’s going to be a great time.

Note:  Starts at 2 PM (not 10:10 a.m. as indicated on the poster, we had a change of plans!)


Capital Underground Live (3.5.2015)

Last Thursday, I took the stage at Bomber’s Burrito Bar’s upstairs performance space in Troy, NY.

I led the evening off and was followed by electro pop singer Jeremy Gold and local hip hop rising star Dom Pat. The night was all apart of the Capital Underground series led by Ralph Renna.

Good jams from everybody. Enjoy the pics and videos compliments of the always amazing Upst8musicafanzone.
