Walt Pitts

Born:

Walt Pitts is a musical chameleon. He may not change color to match his surroundings, but he has the impeccable ability to musically adapt to the environment of practically any live performance space. It’s this versatility that has kept Walt steadily booked at private clubs, resorts, weddings, and corporate events in the Phoenix and Scottsdale, Arizona, area for many years. “I rarely use a prepared set list,” says Walt, whose primary instruments are guitar, mandolin and voice. “I like to get a feel for the venue and the audience and play what feels right in that moment.” That ideal song might be Pat Metheny’s “Last Train Home” or Carlos Santana’s “Europa.” It could be a standard like “Fly Me to the Moon” or a party song such as Jimmy Buffet’s “Margaritaville.” Then again, Walt might decide that the best musical mood enhancer would be a song by Ottmar Liebert, The Beatles, Tommy Emmanuel, Wes Montgomery, George Benson, Eric Clapton, Cold Play, Norah Jones, Dave Matthews, Sting, or Chet Atkins

Matt Richards

Born:

Born and raised in Philadelphia Pennsylvania, guitarist Matt Richards grew up in the culturally fertile cross-currents of the late 1960s. His musical pathway opens in the mix of folk, rock and psychedelic music that defined that decade and eventually guides him into the hyperactive jazz-fusion of the 1970s. Initially a self-taught player, Matt began earnestly developing the technically advanced musical abilities necessary to be part of that highly-energized genre. As his musicianship developed, he discovered straight-ahead jazz and classical music and began incorporating the acoustic guitar in various projects
