I was at Festival of the Arts in Grand Rapids, MI with my girlfriend this weekend and while we were there, we stopped at a music tent to listen to a local band play for a few minutes. I was very impressed.

Matt Gabriel is the name of the artist. Matt Gabriel Band is the name of the group. Take a moment and check out the band’s website on Reverb Nation: http://www.reverbnation.com/mattgabrielmusic

You’ll find playable (full-length) versions of his songs on that site. Be sure to listen to ‘Irish Eyes‘ while you’re there. What a great song. My girlfriend and I loved it and have been humming along to it off and on since we heard it played at the festival yesterday afternoon.

I hope Matt and his band find great success with their talents. The drummer who accompanies him provides additional vocals and together their harmonies are very good; particularly on that ‘Irish Eyes’ song. Man, what a good tune.

So take a listen and if you like what you hear, go check them out sometime…or if you’re not able to get to Michigan, just visit their iTunes site and download the songs instead. Enjoy.

    GREAT songs!!! Really enjoy that acoustic kind of ‘indie’ pop ;-)

    • Hey Missy, thanks for checking out the blog post…glad you like their music! We sure did :) They were nice guys, too. Hopefully we’ll hear more from them in the years ahead.
