When Matisyahu first started touring to packed clubs more than eleven years ago, it was prior to the release of Live at Stubbs, the now Gold record, and prior to that record’s single “King without a Crown” reaching #1 on the alternative rock radio charts. His performances were a raw expression of his spirituality at that time and were supported by musicians who played a foundation of roots reggae augmented by the energy of a rock trio.

Fans latched on quickly for a variety of reasons, but in August of 2005, just months after the release of Live at Stubbs, Matisyahu found himself on stage at the Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival with the de facto leader of improvisational rock-n-roll; Phish’s front man Trey Anastasio. Many early fans of Matisyahu remember that moment clearly not because of the songs he played in front of the 80,000 person crowd, but because of his seemingly unfettered confidence (or perhaps naiveté) in helping lead Trey and his band through an improvisational display of beat boxing and lyrical gymnastics during the two songs performed. It may have been unrefined, but Matisyahu’s passion for full band improvisation was laid bare.

    Thank you,

    I’ve loved Matisyahu’s music for years, ever since by best friend randomly gifted one of his CD’s to me as a belated Christmas present. Ironic perhaps, but this man’s Intermingling of his faith, Reggae, and his own personal journey of awakening produces a sound that, frankly, blows a lot of other’s out of the water. I would be honored to see his show!

    My soul could really use some Tori Amos. These days, we all could. A Thanksgiving treat of tickets for me, my older sister and her husband. Thanks!
