Matt Black is a boutique entertainment supplier. We are not a band factory with hundreds of performers on our books, sending out random groups of musicians who have never played together before. We keep our team small so that we can maintain a high standard of performance and service. So you can be sure that if you book us you will get a selection of the musicians and DJs you see on this page. If you want someone in particular don’t be afraid to ask!
Matt started playing guitar when he was nine years old and never looked back. Later he took up vocals and began composing and arranging music, working as a session guitarist, playing in various Melbourne bands, and performing as a DJ.
Kat sings and plays saxophone with our duo, trio, band, and DJs. She has completed a Bachelor of Music degree, and performs regularly at major Melbourne venues, festivals, and events. She brings warm, energetic vocals, lively sax, and good vibes to any event.
Lani began playing guitar at the age of 12. She went on to work as a singer, acoustic guitarist, and bassist, playing both live and in the studio. She can be booked as a solo artist for acoustic background music, or as part of our acoustic duo and trio lineups.
