ABOUT

Hi, My name is Matt Guza. I just moved back to Pa. after working on cruise ships for the past few years. I'm looking for a professional working/touring/recording band. I'm looking for a band that plays any or all kinds of American based roots music such as trad jazz, blues, R/B, rock,country, funk, etc.
As a drummer...
I most recently played on the Holland America cruise line with the B.B. King All-Star Band. I have also worked for Norwegian cruise line, Celebrity, and Princess cruises. I was a musician (percussionist) with the 78th U.S. Army Band from 2004-2010. The music, culture and drumming of New Orleans, Louisiana has been a major influence on me. I lived in New Orleans and played in several bands throughout the Gulf south. In addition to playing drums, I can also sing, play dobro, and play various percussion such as bones, washboard, congas, spoons etc.. I also have movie soundtrack recording experience. I played on a movie score called "The Brothers Bloom" starring Adrian Brody and Mark Ruffalo. I uploaded a video on which I played drum , dobro and washboard.(Hot Muggy Dirty) I am experienced, professional and easy to work with.
Please contact me for working situations show contact info
Thank You Matt
