It's been pretty busy lately and there have been a lot more shows added to the events page! Be sure to check it out and come out for a good time! As always don't forget those dancing shoes and singing voices! There has been a time change for the blue knob shows for March. The Matt Pletcher Trio now plays from 9-12 instead of 10-1. We are starting to compile some video footage as well so if you have any photos or videos from any of the shows you come to PLEASE send them our way. They may just wind up in the mix! Thanks again and as always thank you for all the love and support!
What a great Christmas, I hope all yours were just as great! In the spirit of giving right now you can download my song 'Sure Thing' for free until the new year begins! Tell all your friends! Just look to the right of this news feed to download it.
Tonight I'll be playing a show up in Portage, PA at the Olde Keg as well so come on out and get wild with me. I know you're probably itching to get out so lets do it! See you tonight!
What a year it's been! Looking forward to 2016! I hope you all have a Merry Christmas and may the new year bring in great things for us all! I'll see you out and about!
My Album 'Sure Thing' turns one year old today! Wow! It's quite a ride so far! It can only get better from here and I have you, the fans, to thank for that.
Looking to pick up a new bass player to join my band 'the PDX'. If you haven't gotten to see our electric performance for yourself then you'll need to know its a high energy country band that plays my original songs plus a mix of new and old country and rock with a splash of some random fun ones in there played with a new twist. If you're a fast learner and skilled at workin the strings then contact me for auditions.
Before anyone starts wondering why... I had originally put the band I had together to fulfill one show which then turned into 3. I sent a thank you to everyone to let them know just how appreciative I am of what they did and my respect and praise will always sing their names. Moving forward and trying to reach my goals some slight changes were made but know that we all remain close friends and ready to help each other whenever needed.
So if you or someone you know may be interested in joining the band please contact me. Thanks guys and gals. Hope to see you all out there again soon!
It's been awhile but a lot has been going on! The CD is finally out on hard copy and all digital platforms. The CD release show went amazing and we are now gearing up for the December 6th and New Years Eve shows at 4D's in Altoona, PA. If you are looking to book a high energy Country / Rock band then please contact us for information on doing so! Stay tuned for more info as it comes and we can't wait to see you all with your dancin shoes at the shows!

Wow things have been very busy around here but finally the CD is off to the presses! For the time being you're able to purchase a digital copy right here on the site! As soon as the CD's are in I'll be sure to let you all know! Also we've already starting preparing for the official "CD release" show for October 4th at 4D's in altoona, PA. I hope you all can make it and party into the night while we rock out for you. Mark the calendars now!! You won't want to miss it.
In other news I've been playing so many acoustic shows lately and getting great feedback and making some really good connections along the way too. It's exciting and it's always a blast to see people having a great time singing and dancing along while I perform. Just wait until you hear the full band! We'll be ready before too long to start hitting the stages.
Currently working on getting some merch together as well! Stay posted for that! Shirts, sticker, etc.....
That's it for now gang. Keep rockin and again thank you all!

Well the CD is almost finished! Just a photoshoot left to go then they are being ordered and ready to buy. Talk about excited!!
I just added a whole slew of new acoustic shows I'll be playing and of course rehearsing with the band in between all of that to get ready to start bringing the real deal to you so I'm really pumped for that as well!
Now even though the CD hasn't been released yet that doesn't stop me from writing a song when the mood is just right to do so. Yesterday i wrote a new one and recorded a video of it on my youtube page for you all to take in. I can't even describe how bad I want to get in the studio and cut this but all in due time. Until then I've changed the video on the front page to this one so you can get a taste of what a future album will hold. I hope you enjoy and as always guys, Your support is overwhelming and I truly can't thank each of you enough. I'll see you out and about for sure!
Wow you guys never cease to amaze me! I can't get over all the love and reactions I've been getting over my songs. Hearing that some of you were even brought to tears... Wow is all I can say. I'm blessed to have gotten where I am so far but sit tight because it's just the beginning! Thank you all so much!
Tracks for the CD are starting to come back from the mixing process! I added 2 songs to the site for you all to check out! Drop me a line and let me know what you think!
That being said now starts the process of saving up to order the actual hard copies of the CD's. They're a bit more expensive because I am going to have them made 100% in America. Completely worth it to me knowing it'll be a step in keeping jobs here in the U.S. where we need it most! If you would like to help by donating funds towards the project I've added a donation button and would appreciate it so much.
Also there is now an official MattPletcherMusic instagram! Got some photos you've taken from while I was playing? Tag me in them and they'll get added.. Who knows maybe you'll see yourself on some photos as well! Also have been adding shows to the show section for things to come this year. As shows are confirmed they go straight to the page so keep an eye out for where you can catch me next! That's all I have for now. Keep rockin guys and gals.
Added some new show dates for this summer and many more to come! Album is finishing up nicely and as soon as it's ready you'll be the first to know! Thanks so much again for all the support on this journey so far!
Hope everyone had a great thanksgiving! Got the new site up and running! Keep checking back. Theres alot of things that will be happening here soon.
Fresh back from Nashville! Still have alot of work to do yet but I can't wait for you all to hear this album! My musical background comes from all over and it certainly shows when you hear these songs. I'm so excited! Keep checking back for more news as it comes out!
