Mátyás Pribojszki Band
Mátyás Pribojszki Band
He always manages to grabb the attention of the audience, night after night in a varied showcase of entertainment that doesn't rely on any rules and regulations. Mátyás has already toured more than 20 countries in Europe with his bands and and jammed together on the festivals' stages with such great blues icons as Paul Lamb (UK), Duke Robillard (USA), Herbie Goins (USA), Andy J. Forest (USA), Tino Gonzales (USA), Howard Tate (USA), Otis Grand (UK) and from the new European generation e.g. Enrico Crivellaro (I), B.B.
& the Blues Shacks (D), Ian Siegal (UK), Mike Sponza (I) and many others. He started playing the harmonica at the age of 15, when he listened to a rare recording of the late Sonny Boy Williamson. In 1995 he founded his first band, the Blues Fools. The band’s reputation quickly grew, and the band became the most well-known Hungarian blues band on the European blues scene. During the 10 successful years together with his Blues Fools Mátyás recorded three albums with them. In January 2004 Mátyás invited some new, mostly jazz-influenced professional musicians to form the Mátyás Pribojszki Band.
His purpose with this main project is to achieve progressive music goals with a multi-genre band in which each member has great experience. The last album, titled flavours (released in January 2005) contains entirely original contemporary compositions testify to the varied and accomplished art of Mátyás' quartet, together with their perception and mastery of other genres. For this album Mátyás specially invited three of his contemporary guitarist friends such as Ian Siegal (UK) and Mike Sponza (Italy). The Mátyás Pribojszki Band consists of harmonica, keyboards, double bass and drums – without a guitar originally in the quartet. Mátyás enjoys inviting great guitar players as special guests to join him for tours, as well.
Besides his musician career, as a most amazing world-class jazz/blues harmonica performer, Mátyás is the official and exclusive endorsee of the traditional Brazilian harmonica manufactory, the HERING HARMONICAS all over in the Central and Eastern European region. On the other hand, he has dozens of young harmonica students in Hungary and Mátyás also the author of a Hungarian harmonica school-book for beginners, titled “Harp School”. ”Mátyás Pribojszki is definitely a brilliant instrumentalist; his tasteful play can by all means compete with the best harmonica players of the blues planet. But the most interesting fact is probably that he is clearly on his way to a very personal and expressive style of his own that will help to redefine the role of his modest instrument in the close future.
Thanks Matt, for your warm music. Besides: the band sounds just great!” Jean-Jacques Milteau From the official homepage: www.matyaspribojszki.com Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
