Matthew Davidson News: Texas Time!   ~  May 2, 2013   

Greetings! ,  

The Matthew Davidson Band is looking forward to two performances in Texas this weekend! First, MDB will be performing at Mayfest in Ft. Worth on Sat., May 4th from 10 - 11 AM on the Shale Art Exploration Stage. Click HERE for festival details. 

After their Mayfest perforrmance, the band will head to nearby Sherman, TX to perform at El Chico for their Cinco de Mayo celebration. The restaurant is located at 2815 N. Highway 75. It's the band's first time to play in this area, so please help us spread the word to your friends that live there!
It was three years ago on Cinco de Mayo that Robin & The Bluebirds invited Matthew to sit in with them for the first time at the Bert Kouns El Chico in Shreveport. That was a special night for Matthew, and it was not long after this performance that Bruce Flett helped Matthew start his own band. We'll always appreciate Robin & The Bluebirds for their role in Matthew's musical adventure! Robin & The Bluebirds are playing at the Bert Kouns El Chico on Sat., May 4 from 6-9 PM. So, now you have two options for Cinco de Mayo!
Thanks to K94.5 for their ongoing support of Matthew and MDB! They included Matthew in pretty good company on their website this week! Click HERE to read the story.

About Matthew Davidson -  
 "I covered the music scene in Shreveport from 1976 to 1991 and encountered a wide range of talented players. Matthew could easily hold his own with any of them. Talent like his is a divine gift, and I hope he takes his potential to the limit - and beyond." ~ John Andrew Prime, writer for The Shreveport Times, 2013
"Fourteen year old rising child prodigy, Matthew Davidson, has been making major waves in the music world. Getting his first taste of guitar at the age of three, Matthew has been stunning the ears of multiple guitar enthusiasts and organizations across the country." ~William Clark, Guitar International, Jan. 2013


"Wonder kid Matthew Davidson may only be 14 but he definitely knows a little something about the blues. "Step Up" is only a taste of what is to come for Matthew. His mature funk'd out guitar skills are inevitably demonstrative of this kids natural talent and devotion to music. You'll never hear another 14-year-old hone that Louisiana Southern blues-funk rhythm the way that Davidson has. " ~Kimmie Tubre, Where Y'at Magazine, New Orleans, LA - December 2012


"The next generation of stars in Louisiana...Matthew Davidson...14 years old from Shreveport, Louisiana. He is going to be something special. He is right now and he's going to be in the future. You know, you look at Matthew and you think about Hunter Hayes, who Louisiana has watched grow up over the years...(3 Grammy nominations for him this year), so...the future of Louisiana music is in good hands." ~Louisiana Lt. Gov. Jay Dardenne, Louisiana Public Broadcasting - December 2012
