Matt Boland Trio
The ”Matt Boland Trio” an absorbing and entertaining new jazz trio featuring Matt Boland on Guitar, David Sakurai on bass and Jack Morash on Drums. Matt, known for his jazz and classical guitar work in the N. E. area, is a Berklee grad who after years of being a side man in rock, jazz and Latin acts is now taking his jazz sensibilities into the guitar, bass and drums trio format. David began playing bass at 14 years old, graduated from Berklee in 1983, and played rock and jazz fusion for years. Now after a 20 year hiatus to raise 2 sons and work in real estate he has returned to play jazz on the upright bass. Jack, originally a guitarist, discovered the drums while playing bass on a cruise ship gig. After years of playing rock and roll he switched to jazz in 2002 and has never looked back. Essentially self-taught, his jazz training has come from scores of sessions and gigs with local talented jazz musicians.
