“Matt Frick is one of my favorite people to play music with in Tampa” -Cory Mon
“Gotta check out Josh and Jenny Higgins, they are my favorite duo in town! I love when Matt sits in with them”-David Holloway
My name is Matt Frick. I sing and play guitar, keys, banjo, and percussion here Tampa and St. Pete. I’ve played with many great bands which have opened up for many big acts such as George Clinton, Santana side stage, Los Lobos, Tony Trishka, Widespread panic to name a few.
I offer a variety of entertainment for your venues. Need a lead guitarist on the fly for a duo or full band? Give me a call! Need a solo singer/ guitarist? Call me! Need a duo???? You know ho I do!! I play with 5 different duos currently!
For 3 hour solo gigs I mostly just play acoustic guitar and sing. I like to mix up hot covers from Clapton, Wilco, U2, Nirvana the Beatles, David Bowie, Bob Dylan, Neil Young, radio head to name a few. Every few shows I’ll bring my 12 string guitar and play Kenny Rodgers, Stevie Nicks, Pearl Jam. . Maybe I’ll play Led Zeppelin, stone temple pilots or old town road on my banjo to switch it up!
My lead guitar game is on point. I have a unique ability to sit in with anyone without even needing music. I have a good ear and may convince you I’ve played with the band you are Listening to many times when actually I’ve probably never met them.
Currently I am sitting in on 5-10 gigs per month playing lead with just my electric guitar. For solo gigs I like to bring out my loop pedal so I can shred on my sweet PRS! I’ll play artists like Jimi Hendrix, T-Bone Walker, Beatles, Rolling Stones.
For 4 hour solo sets I prefer bringing multiple guitars and keys. I love to loop all instruments including percussion, keys, banjo, and vocal harmonies. Don’t worry about not having a drummer, I am one! For each song I offer percussion to most of my songs. On keys I enjoy playing bluesy soul funk stuff like “To love somebody”, “Lean on Me”, “Gramma’s Hands”. My newest thing is looping vocal beats over Gorillaz and Beatles songs. For the right room I will definitely bring my keys.
Bars: $50 per hour, per person. Private parties: price varies, contact me!
