Matt Skellenger Group Live at Dazzle

January 19 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm MST

This one-of-a-kind group from Denver performs the original music of Matt Skellenger. The group’s instrumentation is a unique mixture of acoustic instruments that are centuries old(Tabla, Ghatam, Cajon, Trumpet, Trombone, Drums, Conch Shell), with modern electric instruments and effects(Electric Bass, Pedal Steel Guitar, Effects Pedals). The music blends jazz, world, funk, rock, and fusion influences to create a sound unlike anything you have heard. This performance will feature music from the group’s new album which will be released in early 2023.

Born and raised in Denver, CO., Matt has been composing, performing, recording, and teaching in Colorado for 30 years. Matt earned a B.A. in Music from Metro State University in 2002 where he studied with the great Ron Miles. Ron was an original member of the Skellenger group from 2006-2014, and he is featured on the group’s first 3 albums. Matt has also studied with world renowned bassist and educator Victor Wooten. In addition to leading his own group, Skellenger performs solo and in the Grown Ass Man Band. He has also been a music teacher at Swallow Hill since 2008. You can hear Matt’s music frequently on 89.3 KUVO in Denver.
