“Matt has appeared at our venue more than 10 times as a member of the David Grisman Quintet. At every one of the sold out appearances here, his flute solos are always the highlight of the show. He is a musician’s musician and we can’t wait for his next appearance here!”

“I’ve been using Matt Eakle’s music for deadrolls and breaks on Morning Edition for a number of years, starting with his work with the David Grisman Quintet and continuing with his latest recording “Hardly Work.” I’ve always found his ideas to be melodic, engaging, and full of energy, the perfect thing for a broadcast that begins at 5:00 AM as some people struggle to break away from Dreamland and get their workday going. I definitely look forward to more music from this enterprising musician.”

Van Williamson
Director, Morning Edition

“Matt Eakle’s flute playing is flawless, high energy, flat-out gorgeous…simply one of the best flutists on big blue marble earth! The supremely talented flutist of the David Grisman Quintet, and his equally talented band, take their music into the stratosphere of groove sounds, leaving their audiences both satiated and ready for more.”

“Matt Eakle & his band have brought their incredible flute fired fusion energy & music to Iron Springs Pub & Brewery this past year, and Fairfax is truly a better place because of this. Matt & his band are consummate professionals, and from the very first note played they mesmerize the room with their incredibly tight & polished jams. Do yourself a favor & make a bee line to wherever the Matt Eakle Band is playing to see what flute fired fusion is all about, you won’t be disappointed!”
