Monthly Email List (MARCH)



Hello all,
Welcome to the first of a once a month music email list for bassist/composer Matt Smiley!  Listed below are all of my gigs in the month of March, including multiple performances at Ace Gillett’s, and the Crown Pub in Fort Collins, CO and at the Denver School of the Arts Day of Percussion (3-8) and The University of Wyoming Jazz Festival (3-27/3-28) with guest artists David Scott, Kelsey Shiba, Michael Rodriguez and Damani Phillips. 

On the recording front be on the lookout for the new Alex Nauman/Matt Smiley duo album “Peaceful Contact Proved Elusive,” coming out soon on the Dazzle recording label on limited edition 100 vinyl, and as a digital download featuring original compositions inspired by the music of Frank Zappa, Derek Bailey, and Ornette Coleman.

Thanks for listening and for your support!
Matt Smiley
