Matt’s vast repertoire spans every decade, from the 1950s... to this month! With such a broad range of eras and styles, you’ll wonder how he manages to pull them all together so seamlessly. Since 2010 Matt has honed his craft to produce two exciting live solo options:

  1. The Acoustic Set - just Matt and his acoustic, chock full of off-the-beaten-track gems and unique versions of the songs you love.
  2. The Electric Set - dazzling live electric guitar & vocals to professionally recorded tracks, guaranteed to get the joint rocking!

Matt tailors his sets to fit every event but will always work around your own ideas, themes & requests. Below are just a few of his favourites...
