Matthew Davidson News ~  Feb. 18, 2014   

We're looking forward to warmer weather and several outdoor performances in March. We'll begin the month performing at an event in Longview, TX  hosted by Big Al Mack of Kidd Kraddick in the Morning. It's a "Rock, Paper, Scissors" Tournament" with the proceeds benefiting Habitat for Humanity. The event will include food, drink, fun, and live music. The Matthew Davidson Band will perform from 2:00 - 3:15 pm. Admission is $5.00. Location: Vaca & Kirby Dental Group (Parking Lot) at 3121 H.G. Mosley Parkway. Click HERE for more details. Hope to see you in Longview!

About Matthew Davidson -  
"You might, with so many deep blues connections, expect 15-year-old Louisiana guitar prodigy Matthew Davidson's new single to sound rootsy and raw. Instead, he draws in sounds and textures from a stirringly broad musical spectrum. "Heartbreaker" isn't a Led Zeppelin-like reworking of a dusty old blues side; it's a new melding of things both enduring and freshly conceived." ~Nick DeRiso, Something Else Reviews, Oct. 2013 
"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
