Inspired by the “prebop” bass players and their music, Matt Weiner can slap out a syncopated jazz feel or bow a folksy melody. He frequently performs upward of 200 shows per year around Seattle and other places with Jacob Zimmerman, Ray Skjelbred, Del Rey, Barton Carroll, Bric-a-Brac Trio, Squirrel Butter, Wayne Horvitz, Eli Rosenblatt, Casey MacGill, and many others. He has also recorded and performed with the Todalo Shakers, the Hot Club of Cowtown, the Asylum Street Spankers, Butch Thompson, Becky Kilgore, Danny Barnes, Matt Munisteri, Jon-Erik Kellso, Rani Arbo, and James Hill. Matt has taught at the Puget Sound Guitar Workshop, the Yukon Woodshed Acoustic Music Workshop, the Portland Ukulele Festival, the Menucha Ukulele Bandcamp, and 4 Centrum music camps: the Ukulele Festival, the Country Blues Festival, Voiceworks, and the Hot Strings Vintage Jazz Workshop. He teaches private lessons and workshops (bass guitar and double bass) at Dusty Strings in Seattle.
