BNK Productions has been working with one of the most amazing musicians for a long time now. One of those bands, The Matt O’Ree band we have bringing to New England for quite a few years now. People are always left breathless and and in awe after a Matt O’Ree Band performance. Remembering back to our first show with them on a rainy Friday in May years ago, it had looked like the weather was going to keep us from a good crowd. About 80 people were in attendance when the guys hit the stage. 2 songs in and you could see everyone there grabbing their phones calling people. “Hey, it’s me, you got to come down here and see this!” “hurry up, you gotta hear this”. Last year we held a performance in a parking lot in Wilton, CT to commemorate the 10 anniversary of 9/11. It was wild to hear people screaming for an encore.
The Matt O’Ree Band is a blues rock band fronted by the virtuoso Matt O’Ree on guitar and vocals. Matt brings back visions of Stevie Ray Vaughn and Jimi Hendrix with the roots of Robert Johnson. Backed by Eric on the B3 organ, Scott on bass and John on the drums, this group puts on a show. A real show. A show based on a musical performance rather than some hit songs. Their music has drive an energy to get people moving, with the talent to get you lost in a world of musical notes. These guys have been steady touring the country (and the world) for a long time building a name for themselves in a world of one hit pop wonders and hardly great wonder boys and girls.
Now we have a chance to see them play on the big stages they’re used to playing. Alive at Five, a summer concert series in downtown Stamford, CT has asked the guys to come back to New England and play on the Heineken Stage. The boys will be opening for Foreigner sponsored by NBC Universal and Skytop Lodge, on August 2nd 2012. If you haven’t heard of the Alive At Five please follow the link here for all the important information and rules of the concert area. Stamford Downtown Special Services District works hard to put on a great series of events each year and The Matt O’Ree Band intends to reward their work on August 2nd.
