The ever-surprising guitarist, singer, composer Matt Munisteri is coming to California for his first gigs in this state. He and the fine bassist Todd Sickafoose will playing at DUENDE in Oakland on June 24, 2013 (that’s TONIGHT — Monday) at 9 PM . . . . and you can buy tickets ($10) here.
DUENDE is at 468 19th Street in Oakland: phone 510.893.0174.
Having seen and heard Matt in a variety of contexts — the EarRegulars, with Catherine Russell, with Whit Smith, with Bucky Pizzarelli, with Matt Glaser, with his own band Brock Mumford, in his show devoted to the music of Willard Robison — I know that he always offers a cornucopia of surprising and gratifying music — his own compositions, tunes you wish you knew better, hot jazz, roots music — nothing by-the-numbers.
And here is his website, so that if you’re not near Oakland, you can still climb aboard.
May your happiness increase!
