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' EP “The Beach” was released online in January 2016 and will be available at all shows starting with Matty Begs’ CD release party on March 4th.

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!
