I am currently attending Temple University for a degree in Jazz Drumset. I play in both contemporary in gospel church settings. I play in classic and punk rock bands as well as hip hop groups, funk bands, and all types of jazz combos.
From beginning to end, Matt was a fantastic help. Without even having a physical rehearsal he picked up my flow and ran with it! He was on time, set up really fast with no hassle and was very respectful to my requests. I'd definitely love to work with him again, again and again!
Price Range: $100-$500
Gig Length: 30 - 240 minutes
What to Expect
Expect a well dressed professional who shows up at least thirty minutes early to the gig with the music internalized and an the desire to serve the music and my fellow performers to the best of my ability. I believe that musicians are healers and that performing is a selfless act that can accomplish many things for the audience. Performing is a joy and I am thankful that I can do it for a living. The joy that I find in music is expressed in my playing, my face, and my attitude. No matter the pay or circumstance I try to approach each gig with as much energy and passion as possible.
Additional Booking Notes
I require the music for the gig at least two days before the gig to ensure an enjoyable experience for all.
