Matt is currently rehearsing and performing with:

Have a Cigar

San Diego based Have a Cigar started out as a tribute band in the truest sense, paying homage to fallen Pink Floyd keyboardist Richard Wright in late 2008 at local open mic sessions. Realizing the intoxicating effect this music had on music fans, the five Floyd fans pooled their collective talents and focused on presenting the majestic sounds of Pink Floyd to waiting So Cal audiences. Drawing from the many phases of the Floyd catalog, Have a Cigar blast out note for note versions of much beloved Floyd classics as well as using the experimental nature of the band as inspiration to unleash their own creative talents in the spirit of the Floyd. Expanding the band to include saxophone and female vocals, Have a Cigar presents a very authentic live Pink Floyd experience.

Martin Hall

Progressive alternative rock, orginal tunes with a few choice covers.


The Mustet plays original funk infused jazz tunes. Mostly an instrumental ensemble, but I'm not opposed to having vocalist sit in, The Mustet features a rotating cast of musicians. Expect to see drums, bass, guitar, keyboards and other horns. To get an idea of what we sound like listen to the first two albums on the Listen page. Join the mailing list here if you want to make sure you stay up to date.

Matt has performed extensively with these groups in the past, watch for collaborations in the future:

Skavolutionary Orchestra

Vintage Jamaican Ska.
The Skavolutionary Orchestra on MySpace


Fiat has been around for about two years, Matt started playing with them in April of 2009. Imagine Weather Report meets Frank Zappa and you'll have a good idea of what Fiat sounds like.

Hershel Abram

Relocating to San Diego from LA, Hershel's latest project is a blend of neo-soul, r&b, funk and hip-hop. An established songwriter and terrific singer, once you hear him with the backing band, you can't help but get down and dance.
