Can I Rely On You? - Matt Bednarsky

Matt Bednarsky

Matt will be performing at the next Gary’s House Concert Series on January 4th 2019 at 7:00pm 

(Pot-Luck Party starts at 6:30pm).

Matt was born into music, with a jazz guitarist and music teacher father and a mother with a classical pedigree.   Matt grew up in Shelton, Connecticut . He began violin at the age of 4, guitar at age 8, and started singing not long after.  He first put pen to paper in songwriting at the age of 12.

Matt attended New York University and studied Music, Spanish, Italian, Portuguese, and psychology.  After studying abroad in Italy, graduating from NYU, and living at an orphanage in Trujillo, Peru for eight months, Matt eventually found himself back in NYC and immersed in Greenwich Village’s singer/songwriter community.

Like so many artists today, it wasn’t long until he made the move to Nashville (2013) to dive into Music City’s vibrant scene.

Since then, Matt’s has released three full-length studio albums, “A Bigger Picture” in 2014, “Two” in 2015, and “Luminescence” in 2017.

He’s toured the country and the world, playing to audiences in the U.S., Canada, Europe, and Australia.

He has an expansive internet presence; currently he has over 2.8 million cumulative views on YouTube.

I hope you will join me… You will be impressed.

The last house concert with Ben Danaher was a major success.  I posted some of the videos on YouTube.  I am putting the rest of the year on hold, as far as House Concerts go.  

I am working on having Adam Travis and Sofia Talvik back in the near future.  Let me know if you want me to invite anyone else back.  I’ve had more and more artists contacting me from all over the country.  I am doing my best to get variety and sound/style I think you’ll like.     

Might try an out-door concert for Adam Travis.  Let me know what you think. 

“You” are as much a part of the success of this House Concert series as I am.

When some up and coming bands tour, they will schedule House Concerts in between gigs as they travel across the country. It helps cover their travel costs and many Artists love the personal setting.

A long time ago I attended my first house concert for a band I followed since Med-School. It was an amazing experience. It is my favorite way to see live music… and it’s always music I love. I have been hosting them since we moved to our Woodbine home. I usually do 4 a year.

Variety is the Spice of Life

I try to find different styles of music, ranging from indie rock to folk, bluegrass and Celtic. The Artists often discuss the rich history of the genre, answer questions and socialize during the “Pot Luck” party and intermission. 

Where else would you be able to see National and International Artists up-close and personal.  Find them on YouTube.  I will update this page as it gets closer.

Pot Luck

Plan Ahead…

When I host a House Concert, the music is usually preceded by a “Pot-Luck” gathering/party. Everyone is asked to bring something to eat or drink—to share. The Food/Drink people bring usually makes it interesting. You get to meet some fun people and socialize with the artist.  Bring your favorite dish or appetizer – we all have something we’re famous for. Something ethnic, something different… Or bring some wine, beer or soda.

We usually have 20-30 people show up—so there’s a great variety of food and drink. I usually donate 3-Liters of Sangria, a 12-pak of beer and some Chips to start it off…. I also make Pulled Pork BBQ. I smoke and slow cook it with mesquite for 20+ hours on a Green Egg grill. It is my “signature dish”, but it’s not enough to feed a crowd.

⇒ Bring Your Favorite Drink ⇐

My Bar is stocked, but I try not to have it raided. It often does…. I might have to start clearing it out before shows – which would be sad. I can’t charge if you drink from it, but you can, on an Honor System, Donate to the bar at the slot machine.

The $15-$20 donation I collect at the door — all (100%) goes to the artist.

Please don’t consider it an OPEN BAR.
