Get down to Laundry Bar for this reggae feast on Sep 4th. It's bassey and it's louuuuuddddd. One of the first gig's back in Melbourne and i'll be jammin it out with The India Black!
The first Thursday of each month the reggae bands of Melbourne unite with Jesse I to create a festive night of reggae and dub. Expect only the best and nothing less at Zion Island!
Been back in the studio mixing a couple of the new band tracks today and again tomorrow. The first single release coming in September :) #mattkatsis&theindiablack #reggaerock
Just played the last gig of the Oregon USA shows! Music really is the universal language and it's been a pleasure sharing some of my music in your country America! all in all it has been a truly unique experience, from road tripping with philippa through California, Arizona, Nevada, Utah and here in Oregon seeing some seriously mind boggling scenery, amazing national parks and meeting like minded people along the way.
Huge thanks to the people who made this journey possible Mark Mccord, Deb Riechers, The Fret Drifters, The Bruthen Blues & Arts Festival committee and sponsors for the amazing opportunity through the international musicians challenge (muso's friends check it out!) to travel overseas, playing to audiences on the other side of the globe! Looking forward to making it back to USA in the years to come :)
Aswell, it's been a blast sharing the stage with Reuben Stone Hit Factory (New Zealand) for these shows! Take a minute to check out his music. I'm sure we'll be playing a show or two again when that melbourne summer rolls around.
on that note someone better dust off that snow mobile, melbourne winter cya soon!
