CAPTAIN BEYOND

FACEBOOK // WEBSITE

CAPTAIN BEYOND was formed from the ashes of “Deep Purple”, “Johnny Winter And” and “Iron Butterfly”. The line-up consisted of Rod Evans, vocals (Deep Purple); Bobby Caldwell, drums-vocals (Johnny Winter And; Larry “Rhino” Reinhardt, guitar (Iron Butterfly); and bassist, Lee Dorman (Iron Butterfly).

After hearing the bands demo, long-time friends Duane and Gregg Allman introduced CAPTAIN BEYOND to the late Phil Walden and Capricorn Records.

After the release of the first album “CAPTAIN BEYOND” and a most successful launch at the Montreaux Jazz and Pop Festival followed by a relentless touring schedule (with Alice Cooper, The Allman Brothers, Black Sabbath and many others) Bobby left for a short time during the recording of the second album called “Sufficiently Breathless”.

Bobby then returned and CAPTAIN BEYOND set out once again on a new round of touring with the likes of King Crimson, Trapeze, ZZ Top, etc. In the mid-seventies lead singer Rod Evans decided to leave music and was replaced with Willie Daffern on vocals. The band then signed with Warner Bros. and recorded the album “Dawn Explosion”. After further touring and management changes CAPTAIN BEYOND in 1978 went on hiatus.

In 2000, Rhino and Bobby decided to reform CAPTAIN BEYOND which included Jeff Artabasy who is a current member, and recorded a four-track EP. Unfortunately, this line-up was short lived as Larry Reinhardt was having health problems and it was decided to not continue. In addition, a tribute album to CAPTAIN BEYOND’s music was recorded by some of Scandinavia’s best musicians titled “A Thousand Days of Yesterdays”.

In January of 2012, Larry Reinhardt passed on, followed by CAPTAIN BEYOND’s original bassist Lee Dorman, who also passed on some nine months later. Rod Evans has been involved in the medical field and is not currently involved in music.

Bobby Caldwell has resurrected the new Captain Beyond with the intention of recording some new master works and bringing this historic music back to their many fans!

MATT O'REE BAND

FACEBOOK // WEBSITE

Over the past few years, The Matt O'Ree Band has done what most area bands do. They've played their shows, developed their sound, released their records, and very quietly built a massive fan base in the process. What makes this band different from all the others is that their local fan base includes Bruce Springsteen, David Bryan (Bon Jovi), Steve Cropper (Booker T & the MG's), John Popper (Blues Traveler), the late Bernie Worell (P-Funk) and the late Hubert Sumlin (Howlin Wolf), all of whom had volunteered to perform on the band's album, Brotherhood. When some of your biggest supporters have sold over 200 million units, you know you're doing something right.

Growing up on influencers ranging from Jimi Hendrix, Cream, Led Zeppelin, Deep Purple, Rory Gallagher, ZZ Top, Robin Trower, Joe Walsh, and Stevie Ray Vaughan, the Matt O'Ree Band has taken all these diverse elements and forged a new iron.

Matt's songwriting is inspired by many life experiences and years of study from the ones that have written the book on how to play real guitar rock music. Not as a photocopy, but in a new light that hasn't been seen in quite some time.

In addition to being a creative songwriter, Matt was recognized by the industry as a guitar great after winning a national guitar contest hosted by B.B. King and John Mayer through Guitar Center and Guitar World magazine. Matt beat out over 4,000 competitors to win the grand prize which consisted of multiple guitars, an endorsement from Gibson, a shopping spree at Guitar Center, and a new car from Scion. This major accomplishment was the spark that jumpstarted his career and gave his band momentum for their future success.

Matt's talent was then recognized globally when he got the nod to join rock legends Bon Jovi as their guitarist/backing vocalist on their 2015 stadium tour of the Far East.

The newest addition to the band, Eryn, an accomplished artist and songwriter in her own right, joined forces with Matt to front the Matt O'Ree Band. Eryn's influences include artists like Aretha Franklin, Etta James, Otis Redding, Bill Withers, Susan Tedeschi, Eva Cassidy, and more, creating Eryn's sultry-yet-powerful vocal style. Eryn won awards such as the BELK Southern Musician Blues Showcase beating out thousands of competitors. This allowed Eryn to perform in two national commercials and multiple music festivals for this southern department store. She has also won Asbury Park's Top Female Vocalist and Top Blues Band. She is the youngest artist to be inducted into the NJ/NY Blues Hall of Fame and one of only three females who have been inducted. She has performed or opened for artists such as Don McLean, Gregg Allman, Johnny Winter, Robert Cray, Dr. John, Shemekia Copeland, The Gin Blossoms, Little River Band, Marcia Ball, Walter Wolfman Washington, Eric Lindell, Sonny Landreth, The Radiators, Johnny A and so many more. She also recently sang backup vocals with the Smashing Pumpkins on the Late Show with Stephen Colbert.

Since the addition of Eryn, the band has been promoting two new singles "Without You" and "Through Time with You" co-written and produced by John Ginty, B3 Organ player for the Allman Betts Band and the Dixie Chicks. The songs are an indication that the band is moving in a new direction forming a powerhouse team, blending Eryn's soulful vocals with Matt's gritty vocals and unparalleled guitar. Together these two front an incredible sound where the audience can feel the sparks between them. The chemistry on stage is unstoppable.

Currently, Matt and Eryn, in addition to the band, have been working on crafting a completely new album to showcase the power teams updated sound. The Matt O'Ree Band has never been more focused on reaching their goals and continuing to build their fan base around the globe. Once the new album is finished Matt and company are ready to hit the ground running. Now is the time for real music and real musicianship to make a resurrection.
