Matt Nakoa LIve
Event DescriptionPiano rocker Matt Nakoa grew up on a small goat farm just up the road in Smyrna where he began composing music as a teenager. Following a formative stint as a classical pianist, Matt won scholarship to attend Berklee College of Music in Boston. There he studied alongside soon-to-be Grammy winners St. Vincent and Esperanza Spaulding among others. After college, Matt toured with his band, The Fens, and eventually landed in New York City’s vibrant piano bar scene. Matt quickly became a star performer at Manhattan’s Brandy’s Piano Bar, with lines outside the door each Saturday night.
No stranger to the road, Matt is now making a quick stop back to his roots for a one-night only performance at the historic Martin Kappel Theater in the Chenango Arts Council, kicking-off its 2107-2018 season of live performances.
