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.

    I haven’t seen Matisyahu since my college days. He came by Chabad at the UW and we jammed after. I’ve seen him twice since then but not since college. Super excited to go!

    In the words of Matisyahu himself:

    “Young man, control in your hand. Slam your fist on the table and make your demand..”

    Matisyahu – Acoustic would be amazing!! I’ve been a fan since the 2009, when I listened to One Day. I couldn’t believe him when I actually saw the video, I honestly didn’t expect to see this voice from that beautiful person!! He won me over with his words of peace and hope.

  24. Kendra November 8, 2018 at 4:14 pm #

    Matisyahu got me through high school! I’ve always dreamed of seeing him live but always miss the opportunity. It would be amazing to go!

  36. LeeAnn November 9, 2018 at 5:37 pm #

    my life is like Live Like a Warrior…
    looking for somewhere to belong, to be safe, and to heal.
    Sat out on the back stoop of the venue with some random kids and a turtle- when Matisyahu was in Eugene last year…I just happened to be passing thru & falling in love with Oregon for the first time.. when I heard the soothing crooning from nearby…& now I finally made it back to Oregon, just to see he/they are back too! Kismet, me thinks…

    my life is like Live Like a Warrior… just looking for somewhere to belong.

    sat on the back stoop of the venue- waiting for every stray note to waft through the cracks- with some random kids& a turtle- last summer when Matisyahu was in Eugene. I had arrived moments before and was falling in love with Oregon for the first time when I heard the soothing croonings from a building nearby…& now, just as I finally arrived back to Oregon, Matisyahu is here too… Kismet, me thinks..

    I’ve never been to a concert in Portland after living here for 3 years! (Sad, I know.) This would be the perfect opportunity, because I LOVE Matisyahu, have nothing to do tonight, and you’d be making my weekend AMAZING!

    Have wanted to see him but haven’t had the opportunity…yet!
