Hello everybody! Welcome to the brand new Matthew Skoller website!! Thanks to a grant awarded to me by The Department Of Cultural Affairs and Special events, here in Chicago, I now have this wonderful new ‘cyber-space’ to reach out to and receive the world with!!
This “News” page will allow me to blog and post all the cool experiences I have out on the road and here in Sweet Home Chicago. So here goes!!!
Check out our brand new Electronic Press Kit (“Press”) replete with all kinds of downloadable goodies. (Band shots, head shots, posters etc.)
Under “Bio” you can learn about my history, my band and check out the new Bill Sims Jr. and Matthew Skoller song demo! Yes Bill and I have joined forces and are now available as a dynamic blues duo!! We jumped into the studio in Brooklyn, NY for a couple of hours on my last trip to NYC in October, took some head shots and presto! A Blues DUO all you talent buyers are gonna want!
Click on the “Corporate Events” page and see why The Matthew Skoller Band has played 100’s of these gigs over the years and continues to turn stuffy corporate affairs into the Wang Dang Doodles they ought to be!!!
Click on “Cognac.” Did you know that I am a co-owner of a Cognac exportation company? Learn all about my involvement with Family Tradition Cognac. We arguably have the largest portfolio of single vineyard, family made “grower” Cognac in the world. And combine Blues and Connie Yak???? Somebody better call the DOCTOR!!
Don’t forget to check out the new Soundcloud Jukebox while you are cruising around my site.
I will also be posting lots of new photos from Chicago to Mali, Africa!! Click on Gallery to see my photos.
In other news the The Matthew Skoller Band will be heading down to Savannah, GA to play the Holiday Party for the DIRTT Savannah office on December 6th!
We are very excited to announce that we are opening for the Legendary Buddy Guy at Legends on Sunday January 25th!!
Matthew also just booked some dates in Baden, Switzerland for January 8th-11th and then off to Paris for two or three gigs. All dates and venues will be posted on our “Shows” page as the information becomes available.
