Add to Calendar 2013-04-06 7 & 9pm 2013-04-06 Matt Skellenger Group at DazzleJazz Electric bassist Matt Skellenger, has always been an exception to the rules. By combining forward thinking creativity, progressive techniques and natural musicality, Skellenger displays a uniquely identifiable sound. Born and raised in Denver, CO., Matt has been composing, performing, and recording in the Front Range for over 15 years. In 2002, he earned a B. A. in Music from Metropolitan State College of Denver where he studied with Fred Hess, 1st Place winner at The 2006 International Jazz Composers Symposium, as well as with internationally renowned trumpeter Ron Miles.  Skellenger's fierce dedication to the electric bass led him to attend Steve Bailey and Victor Wooten's Bass At the Beach Workshop in 2004, as well as four of Victor Wooten's Bass Nature Camps from 2004-2008.  There he had first hand experience studying with Victor Wooten, Steve Bailey and Chuck Rainey who are full time instructors at the camps and some of the most influential musicians to ever play the electric bass. At the 2005 BNC, Skellenger was awarded one of two scholarships to attend The Bass Collective in NYC for a week long intensive course. The versatility of Matt's playing can be heard on music ranging from solo bass, jazz sextet and modern rock power trio to folk, Americana, funk and pop groups. In 2003, Matt released his first solo bass album On My Way Home. In addition to leading his own quartet, Skellenger is currently a member of Ron Miles' Blossom Band, Katalyst and The Lovely and Talented. DazzleJazz, 930 Lincoln St false MM/DD/YYYY
