The Matthew Davidson Band had a hot, but fun, day at The Bedford Blues Festival in Bedford, Texas last weekend. The stage volunteers were especially friendly and helpful. Thanks to everyone who endured the heat to listen to our show. It was really neat to be a part of this festival...and to get to meet Jimmie Vaughan and say hello to him before his headlining performance!

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
