It’s been four years since I met up with Matt Layzell of The Matinée at Roxy Burger to interview him for my E!Online column. The six folk/southern/roots band members (Matt Layzell, Matt Rose, Pete Lemon, Mike Young, Geoff Petrie, and Dave Young) had only been together for a year but their future looked promising.
Since that fateful night, The Matinée released a self-titled EP, have done a Canada-wide tour, released a full studio album, were featured in Shore 104FM‘s Sounds of Summer contest, and recently placed third in The Peak Performance Project.
Their top-tapping music is real and approachable and their energetic live shows have earned them quite the following. You can catch them January 30th at The Yard Cafe for an acoustic set, at VENUE February 18th, in Whistler at the GLC on February 25th, during CelticFest Vancouver March 15th, and in Toronto for Canadian Music Week March 22nd to 25th.
Matt has offered up 2 tickets for their February 18th show at VENUE to a Miss604 reader. If you would like to check out The Matinée in action with guests The Washboard Union and Good for Grapes, here’s how you can enter to win your way in:
