Matisyahu concert new york city

By: Captain Morgan

Matisyaho – A self-professed Deadhead and Phish follower has come along way from White Plains. Last night’s show in Central Park New York City attracted an eclectic crowd from Hoolahoopers to Neil Young look-a-likes to Wall street newbies. Definitely a good time and some incredible on-stage talent.

Central Park as a venue worked well – the event was a fundraiser to support more free concerts in the park (Summerstage 2009.). Even with the lack of porta-potties, the $5.80 ticketmaster “service fee” and running out of chicken (sorry, Cameron!) the space worked.

Matisyaho concert

Matisyahu was joined by Umphrey’s McGee – an American progressive rock/jam band from Chicago known for “progressive improvisation”. Definitely made for an interesting to start to the show but I think the UM fans were more entertaining than the band.

More upcoming SummerStage concerts – July 2009.

I’d like to get your feedback on the show – comments welcome/under this post.
