Matty B Presents a Theatrical Concert Featuring Music from the 50s at PACA by Ryan Smith

Friday, March 4

With all that old-school rockabilly pouring out of him, we know damn well that Matt Boland can really pull off playing the great stuff of the 1950s.

That music – a considerable part of his own sonic roots – suits him well, and sounds good on him. And on Friday, March 4 and Saturday, March 5 at PACA, he’s putting it on in true form with his all-new theatrical/musical review, Matty B Presents A Night at the 50s.

It’s “a step back in time, bringing you the authentic feel of walking into a late 1950s concert to see Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Buddy Holly, and Eddie Cochran,” says Boland.

Almost a decade ago, Boland brought Buddy Holly back to life in an acclaimed, six-show sellout theatrical concert performance at Erie’s former Roadhouse Theatre.

“People have been asking me to do Buddy Holly ever since,” he says, “so I decided to put on a show like you are stepping into a time-warp and literally watching a rock-and-roll review in the 50s.”

For three shows – each all-ages, and BYOB for those 21-plus – PACA will become a vehicle to rock’s past, with Boland and his bandmates at the wheel.
