For Friday night’s show, Matt Weidinger has put together a seven-piece band, including two horns to reflect the sound for which Morrison is known. Weidinger’s own influences stem from the ’60s, as can be heard in both his vocals and his choice of music.


Like Morrison, he began performing as a teen. For a relatively young performer, he’s already got more than a decade of experience under his belt that has earned him a solid following. In addition to singing and writing songs, he’s a multi-instrumentalist, equally at home on the piano, organ, guitar, bass and mandolin.


Born decades after Van Morrison was creating some of his most enduring music, 26 year old Matt Weidinger, has a musical connection to the ‘60s and ‘70s, what he calls the golden age of record-making. Anyone who has seen him would agree with the “old soul” label, so it’s particularly fitting that he’s taking on the songs of an old soul master with his latest tribute to the music of Van Morrison


With sold out shows at Hughes Room (Toronto), Peter’s Player’s (Gravenhurst), Registry Theatre (Kitchener) to name a few….. This show is one not to miss!


A must see for Van Morrison & live music fans alike!


… Matt Weidinger and his stellar group of musicians have put together a live music gem” – Bob Hunt, The Blues Studio Sessions


Young Matt Weidinger is an old soul. Steeped in real-deal rhythm & blues, blues, and soul music from his earliest years, he is renowned for his blue eyed soul vocals, guitar p laying, and prowess on the hammond organ. Matt’s 2018 Registry Theatre amazing concert of themusic of Van Morrison was a season highlight, with its rich, authentic take on a genuine music icon.


The concert such a hit that Matt will be back next season for Van The Man Volume 2. – Lawrence McNaught,  Registry Theatre


“Matt’s interpretation of Van’s music is a deeply moving personal memoir of Celtic soul. Simply marvellous..Actually fantabulous!” – Bruce Hall,  Grand Rivers Blues Society
