Combining the charm and comfort of old time music with the shock-and-awe power of classic rock, Matt Arthur & The Bratlanders are a crowd pleasing burst of old and new. Matt Arthur is the blind force in front, with a voice as powerful as it is nuanced. He is backed by the brothers Bratland, Don on lead guitar and harmonica and Doug on bass and the solid time keeping of Joel Beithon on drums. Their history-meets-present method reveals the simple fact that a great song, no matter if it was written in 1872, 1972, or just last week, is still a great song.
Matt & The Brats are a Northfield staple and the perfect band to help you celebrate the Defeat of Jesse James Days’ Townie Night.
