Matthew Davidson News ~  Nov. 12, 2013   

The big event this weekend is The Highland Jazz and Blues Festival at Columbia Park in Shreveport! 

The Matthew Davidson Band will be kicking off the day on the Pavilion Stage from 10-11 AM. MDB will be joined by several talented teen guest musicians from Caddo Magnet High School. Then at 2:15 pm, Matthew will be performing with the Jerry Beach Blues Jam. Matthew first met Jerry Beach in 2010 when Bruce Flett invited Matthew to sit in with The Bluebirds for the first time. Jerry became Matthew's mentor, teacher, and friend. Matthew is looking forward to performing with Jerry again at the 2013 Highland Jazz & Blues Festival! Here's the complete festival lineup:

About Matthew Davidson -  
"We were impressed  with the band's performance, poise, and stage presence. And of course, Matthew's proficiency on the guitar! We'll be hearing more from him, I'm sure."  ~Stephen Lundgren, Stage Manager, 2013 Louisiana Seafood Festival 

"Having been in the recording business for so many years and with so many great artists, I can honestly say that this young man, Matthew Davidson, has all the makings of a Superstar artist. It'll be a pleasure to watch him become that Superstar."   
~Hal Blaine, legendary "Wrecking Crew" drummer and member of the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame who played on numerous hit records of the 60's - 70's 

"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
