We are excited to announce that Matt Jaffe will be playing at this
year’s Country Fair Day in Creek Park from 12-3pm.!
MATT JAFFE is a singer/songwriter from San Francisco. Cutting his teeth on open
mics around the Bay Area, Matt started taking music (a little bit) more
seriously when JERRY HARRISON of Talking Heads offered to produce his first
record. Since then, Matt has churned out more songs than he can remember
the words to, oversaturated the market with gigs (opening for the likes of
MAVIS STAPLES, WILCO, and BLUES TRAVELER), and collaborated with the likes of
CHUCK PROPHET and TOM HIGGENSON of the Plain White T's. Having toured the
country playing places like The Fillmore and your local hipster's basement,
Matt is back in the studio with his band, readying his third record and
preparing to bring the guitar gospel back to the masses.
"Jaffe, young and full of raw musical power and drive, has developed a
kind of neo-punk style that recalls Joe Strummer and The Clash. And that's a
very good thing"
