Welcome To MattyBegs.com

With roots in Wilson & Rocky Mount NC, the band Matty Begs officially began in the Spring of 2012.  Known for their high-energy, jam-infused live shows, catch Matty Begs’ acoustic-electric party rock at the best bars, colleges, and beaches the East Coast  has to offer.  The band covers a wide variety of songs, new and old, and infuses them  with their own funky upbeat style to encourage the audience to have fun, sing along, and dance…because that’s what music is about!!   
Matty Begs' original material draws heavily upon the bands' influences. Catchy lyrics and sing-along, party-anthem choruses inspired by the likes of the Dave Mathews' Band, Blues Traveler, Counting Crows, Jack Johnson, and Sublime, leave the listener feeling good and wanting more.  Matty Begs' third EP “The Beach” was released in March 2016.


New EP "The Beach"

We spent a lot of time playing at the coast the last four years.  The salt air vibe and easy going lifestyle inspired 4 songs to capture the band's love of the beach, life, family, and  friends.  The third time was a charm at Thread Audio as we spent over a year perfecting what we think is our best music to date.  We are so proud of this EP and thankful we have the best fans to share it with!!

Happy Birthday Fun!

Matty celebrated his birthday with doing what he loves, rocking out!  Kappa Sigma at UNC was the place to do it.  The brothers love their music and they made Matty and the band feel that love.  The crowd was rocking and it was a birthday Matty will always remember.  Till next time Kappa Sigma!

Happy New Year!

2015 was an amazing year for the band.  We recorded a new EP to be released in 2016, we toured all around the Carolinas and Virginia, and we made memories to last a lifetime.  We look forward to seeing all of you in 2016 so you can help us make more great music and memories.  Happy New Year!


New Year's Bash!

After spending the beginning of the week in Ocracoke, the band returned home to play a New Year's Eve show at Brewmasters.  The place was live with beer, food, and music lovers and all rang in 2016 with a positive vibe.  Wilson friends and fans showed up! Unfortunately too much as Brewmasters reached capacity and had to turn away a bunch of fans, but don't fret, we'll be back at Brewmasters on March 4th for our CD release party!!  Thank you Wilson!

Coke Heads...

Ocracoke heads that is!  We had a blast playing this past Monday and Tuesday at Gaffers on Ocracoke Island.   We had so much fun exploring the Outer Banks, meeting the locals, and partying to the wee hours of the night.  This band loves the beach life!  See you in the summer Ocracoke!
