Matt Eakle has been blowing audiences out of their chairs and onto their feet with music from the David Grisman Quintet, digging in deep with his unique flute playing. He now brings the same virtuosity, energy, and spirit that has been electrifying audiences at sold-out concert venues and festivals around the world to his own, Matt Eakle Band.

"This is a deep groove band playing jazz fusion at the highest level, showcasing musicians who not only know how to play, but how to listen." Paul Liberatore

The Matt Eakle Band

Thurs. Feb. 16 @ 7:30

An evening of jazz fusion from Marin local favorite and flutist extraordinaire Matt Eakle and his band, filling the Hoytt theater with music and cocktails with a twist. With Alex Baum on bass, Jack Dorsey on drums, and Joey Edelman on keyboard, the Matt Eakle Band highlights the long history of four brilliant musicians whose synergy is a force of nature.

The Matt Eakle Band was chosen by the Marin Independent Journal as one of "The Best of the Local Sound" for 2010, an honor given to, "...artists that you should have been listening to this past year." Paul Liberatore writes: "This is a deep groove band playing jazz fusion at the highest level, showcasing musicians who not only know how to play, but how to listen."

“We perform all original material,” says Matt, “music that blends the classic sounds of rock, blues, soul, jazz, with the musical traditions of Africa, India and South America.”

Head-turning, jaw dropping, spell-binding, adrenaline-pumping jams that transfix and transport. The Matt Eakle Band and their CD, “Hardly Work” prove just how powerful flute-fired fusion can be.
