Matthew Whitaker Trio

Advance ticket sales for this show have ended.
Tickets will be available at the door starting at 5:30 PM

A wunderkind pianist/organist/drummer/composer/arranger born in Hackensack, NJ, Matthew Whitaker grew up surrounded by music. His love for playing music first began at the age of three, after his grandfather gave him a small keyboard. At nine, Whitaker began teaching himself the Hammond B3 organ and four years later he became the youngest artist to be endorsed by Hammond in its eighty-plus year history. In 2010, Whitaker was a winning participant in the “Child Stars of Tomorrow” competition as part of Amateur night at the Apollo. A year later he was invited to perform at Stevie Wonder’s induction into the Apollo’s Hall of Fame. He is truly a rising star.
