On Thursday June 8th 2017, the Soho will be hosting a benefit celebration of local Americana and original roots music from Santa Barbara and Ventura, featuring some of the region's best classic country, folk, and alt. country groups.
The show is in the spirit of some of the great classic country variety shows (ala the Lousianna Hayride, Wheeling Jamboree, Grand Ole Opry), with a mixture of full electric bands, duos, and original entertainment back-to-back, with only a few brief intermissions throughout the night.
The event is a also a benefit for the Food Bank of Santa Barbara, with the ticket price being $5 with the donation of two items of canned or packaged foods (here's a link to the kind of canned goods the Foodbank is looking for: http://foodbanksbc.org/give- help/donate-food/)--please note, the ticket price is $10 without the food donation--so please bring along some canned goods to help out!
From their Bylaws:
"The Detroit Sportsmen's Congress was founded on the principle that existing genres of folk-rock, country, and Americana are meant to be crafted and sculpted into new forms of auditory ambulation--and that complacency carries consequences."
"To draw out the echoing twang, reverb, and darkness from the smoldering remnants of manifest destiny that still mournfully beat in the hearts of our unknowing constituency."
Representatives of the DSC are all professional, hard-laboring proletariat musicians with diverse roots--each of which are derivative of a multitude of genres, backgrounds, and skills.
In 2015, Matt independenly released his self titled 12 song solo album with 9 original songs of good times, heartbreak, and self redemption. As well as three great cover tunes!..Americana, Country swing/blues/alt country/rockabilly...whatever you want to call it! It's a solid record from start to finish...Matt will performing as a duo at the Hayride with the great Barney Tower (Guitar).
