WNY’S MATTHEW FACCIOLLA TO OPEN FOR JOAN JETT JUNE 11TH AT ARTPARK – RETURNING HOME AFTER HIS ACCLAIMED “BUFFALO PLACE ROCKS THE HARBOR” CONCERT LAST YEAR!
EXCLUSIVE MEDIA AVAILABILITY MONDAY AND TUESDAY!
LEWISTON, NY (http://matthewfacciolla.com ) You may not know the name now – but you will. Meet Matthew Facciolla, one of the fastest rising musical artists in the country, who started his career in WNY.
At only 14, Matthew formed the popular “Electric Bushman” band in Buffalo. This 3 piece powerhouse rocked the college scene, bringing Matthew and his music to New York. While there, a Billboard magazine review of his work landed him a gig at the 1996 Atlanta Summer Olympics, playing with Ziggy Marley and the Gin Blossoms.
From there, Matthew headed to Los Angeles; Atlanta; and Sarasota where his work became widely recognized by leaders in the music industry. Buffalo’s own “Goo Goo Doll” Robby Takac recorded Matthew Facciolla’s album “Second Chances” in 2012 at his GCR Studio. Facciolla’s Buffalo connection brought his band together with “Goo Goo Doll” lead singer Johnny Rzeznik at the 2012 “Surf and Song Festival” in Fort Myers.
Later in 2012, Matthew Facciolla returned to Buffalo performing in concert for over 10,000 fans at “Buffalo Place Rocks The Harbor,” opening for the J. Geils Band. The Buffalo News compared Facciolla and his band to Bruce Springsteen, calling the concert, “one of the best all summer.”
Now, Matthew Facciolla is returning to Western New York. He and his band are opening for rock superstar Joan Jett Tuesday June 11th at Artpark in Lewiston, NY. You can interview this rising musical star Monday and Tuesday. Remember those first interviews with Robby and the “Goo Goo Dolls?” – Consider this your chance to connect with another future WNY music superstar!
