PRESENTED BY LAYLA ANNA-LEE
From a punk rock background thrashing it out Matt soon turned to writing acoustic songs and found the music "a lot more honest to play and write." He soon recruited Pete and Joe to join him and Matt Herbert & the Heavy Hitters were born.
The band have since gone on to wow audiences around the south east and London, and have been asked to provide their music to soundtrack some snowboarding films. Add this to some radio airplay and the future is looking bright.
For something that started as a laid back project things have gone from strength to strength for the band. Their satisfaction from playing this music is evident from live performances, joking with the crowd between songs and throwing in a couple of covers to keep toes tapping.
The band love playing this so much that they cant help but get carried away by it all - and at the moment they can't think of a better way to get carried away! Thank you if you have or are thinking about coming along to a show!
