Jersey Rock Band of the Week: Matt O'Ree Band

Performing at The Lizzie Rose Music Room in Tuckerton on Saturday 4/28!

Matt O’Ree Band is a highly-talented group of skilled musicians and singers.  The Bluesy Rock outfit wields their instruments and vocal cords with a level of precision that would impress even the most critical of music fans.  A well-known New Jersey guitar hero, Matt O’Ree has proven his skills time and time again. Having recently served as a touring guitarist for newly inducted Rock And Roll Hall of Famers Bon Jovi, Matt O’Ree is accustomed to performing in front of crowds that are 70,000 strong.  His band can jam hard in the most packed of venues, but also change gears to produce a highly organic acoustic experience.

Matt O’Ree Band will perform unplugged on Saturday 4/28 at the Lizzie Rose Music Room in Tuckerton.  The location is not a bar nor a restaurant, but rather a beautiful victorian venue aimed at providing a space for the enjoyment of music. It is run as a non-profit organization with the mission to “bring live music to Tuckerton, surrounding Ocean County, and beyond.”  The venue is BYOB.

Tickets to Matt O’Ree Band’s performance at The Lizzie Rose Music Room are $28 and are available at lizzierosemusic.com.

Matt O’Ree Band put on an amazing performance at The Jersey Rock Showcase at The Wonder Bar in Asbury Park back in February.  Since then the band has been hard at work cranking out videos on their youtube channel, MOBonTv. Check out the video series at youtube.com/mobontv and make sure to subscribe to stay on top of all of M.O.B’s latest videos!

Matt O’Ree Band’s “Brotherhood” album is out now.  The CD rocks hard with fast-paced jamming tracks and slower, wisdom-fueled tunes.  There is plenty of shredding to be enjoyed, as well as awesome guest appearances by Bruce Springsteen, David Bryan, and Steve Cropper.  “Brotherhood” can be purchased at mattoreeband.com, at a live show, or at Jack’s Music Shoppe in Red Bank.

Tune to Jersey Rock on 95.9 The Rat on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday night at 11:30 to hear songs from the “Brotherhood” album.  Matt O’Ree will be on the show each night and will be joined in-studio by Eryn O’Ree for a special acoustic performance on Wednesday.
