Matthew and Greg enjoyed performing at The Blue Dog Cafe in Lafayette, LA last weekend during their Sunday Brunch. Thanks to Sundra Hominik from The Times of Acadiana for coming out to interview Matthew and Greg and to film some of their performance. Great venue...great food...great time!

Next on MDB's schedule is a performance at Madison Park El Chico on Sat., Aug. 24th from 6-9 PM. Most of the band's shows this fall are out-of-town, so we hope you will save the date and join us while we're in Shreveport. It's always a fun time when MDB plays at El Chico!

Please check out the band's schedule in the newsletter below and see if we'll be playing near you. We hope you will forward this newsletter to your friends. Thank you for your support!

About Matthew Davidson -  
"Matthew Davidson has been playing guitar for about six years. It looks like 16 when you see him play." ~Kidd Kraddick in 2011, host of nationally syndicated radio show "Kidd Kraddick in the Morning". 
"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
