Matt’s love for music shows through his extensive repertoire with his extraordinary key skills and mesmerising vocals. As a classically trained pianist, his music career has spanned over 20 years and is the owner and operator of Newcastle’s premier music production studio S & M Productions.
For those that don’t know, Matt is blind. Accompanied by his guide dog Stanford, Matt performs professionally full time in the Newcastle region at local venues, weddings, corporate events and functions.
Starting the audition process in late 2015, Matt was successful in progressing through to the live stage auditions of Australia’s Got Talent. Performing in front of Kelly Osborne, Ian “Dicko” Dickson, Eddie Perfect and Sophie Monk, Matt received a standing ovation and four yes’s from the judges sending him to the next stage of the competition.
Matt then took to the AGT stage again with three backup singers to perform “Not the Only One” by Sam Smith which was followed by another standing ovation and a public vote that sent him through to the Grand Final. Unfortunately Matt didn’t take out the number one prize, but was recognised as one of the five Grand Finalist of Australia’s Got Talent in 2016. Another reason you shouldn’t miss seeing this guy live.
Matt and Stanford will grace us with their presence on Friday 25 March (Good Friday) when he performs live in the Club’s Indulge Restaurant from 7pm. We’re feeling generous this Easter and sharing a little love with our members and guests. This time it’s in the form of free live professional talent while enjoying Chef’s Seafood Tasting Plate.
Bookings in Indulge Restaurant are not essential, however they are recommended. Please phone (02) 49592011 to make your reservation. If you’re looking for somewhere to celebrate Easter with the family, friends or even just to dine out for Seafood, be sure to head to Indulge Restaurant to catch Matt’s performance. I promise, it’s one you’ll never forget or be disappointed with. Hey may even opt for selfie opportunities, Stanford too!
Here’s a little sneak peak (in case you missed it!)
Happy Musical Easter,
