Matisyahu Performing at Mateel in February

This is a press release from the Mateel Community Center:

Ineffable Live and the Mateel Community Center present singer, rapper, beatboxer, reggae, dub & rock artist Matisyahu, Wednesday, February 14, 2018 in an all ages show. Matisyahu tours in support of his sixth studio album album Undercurrent, released earlier this year.  The show takes place at the Mateel, 59 Rusk Lane in Redway beginning at 9pm, tickets are on sale Friday, December 15th,  online for $30 through the website.

Singer-songwriter Matisyahu has been on journey inward for more than a decade. When Matisyahu first started touring to packed clubs, it was prior to the release of Live at Stubbs, the now Gold record, and prior to that record’s single “King without a Crown” reaching #1 on the alternative rock radio charts. Now nearly thirteen years after the release of his first studio record, Matisyahu and his band have done something unmatched in his past repertoire; they have crafted that journey into a musically thematic eight song movement entitled Undercurrent released in May 2017.

The band features longtime guitarist Aaron Dugan, Dub Trio bassist and drummer Stu Brooks and Joe Tomino, and keyboard virtuoso BigYuki — and the journey starts with them. The band improvised for hours in the studio with Matisyahu watching on as an admirer without singing a single lyric. Out of the improvisations grew melodic themes, rhythmic peaks and valleys, blissful and proto-song guitar passages, deep dub meditations and ultimately an inspired instrumental record until itself. Only once the band had crafted this musical narrative, did Matisyahu begin to work on a lyrical narrative of his own — a lyrical narrative that is simultaneously informed and integrated with the music yet driven by Matisyahu’s own personal journey. The result is Undercurrent. The record is musically Matisyahu’s most courageous release to date and lyrically his most vulnerable.

  • Blanco/Amarillo reagge….bound to be a hit. Tell me if u sell out tickets? And they wonder why they r losing $….

  • I think Matisyahu is a good snag for the Mateel. Hope they do sell out.

  • Paperwork and Laptops

    Well, since my income got slashed to a quarter of what it was only 3 years ago and I’m struggling to pay my mortgages….I think the first thing I’m not doing is buying $30 concert tickets!

    • You mean since you aren’t making 200 gs a year. Oh dear. Welcome to the world most in. 50 a year if youre lucky . Spoiled priveledged Americans

  • At first I thought I read Mahavishnu… as in John McLaughlin and the Mahavishnu Orchestra. Too bad.

  • So the MCC can book future shows, however; they cannot be accountable for past 2014 or 2015 state required tax audits? Or their 2016 tax return? What point is there to keep booking shows when you are no longer a current 501c3 and claim its for charitable purposes? Who does this benefit? The state calls it being “delinquent”, read the letter:

  • so according to the letter they are violating the law by having the ongoing “rainmaker” campaign, and board members and officers can be held personally liable. at least thats how i read it. sucks this mess of shit they have got themslves into. there really have been some good people working there over the years. some not so good.
    question, can the management be held liable as well as board members? isnt the fault of this thing hotly debated. ive read its the boards fault, ive also read its the Managements fault. it says officers and directors. i have read their claims in previous articles, that this audit was already done. according to the feds as of november it hasn’t. guess its time for an independant accounting and audit. its my understanding they are in an election currently? if the feds find the board of directors personally liable could that fault and subsequent liabillity fall on the new board members as well? scary…

  • Outstanding. L’Chiam!
