The Matt Barranti Band originally formed in 1991 as an Allman Brothers/Southern Rock Tribute Band and went on to survive nearly three decades while going through many changes over the years. They can no longer be classified as a “tribute” band, the MBB has developed its own unique style, stunning audiences with their brand of Blues Rock all over the tristate area.
The band features Matt Barranti on Lead Guitar, Slide Guitar, and vocals; Greg McIltrot on Drums, Vocals, and Harmonica; Fred Delu on Keyboards and Willy Franklin on Bass. Each band member brings a lifetime of experience and talent to the table. Together, they have forged a musical identity that has inspired devotion from not only Blues fans, but also anyone who loves music that emanates from the soul.
In December 2016, the British Blues-Rock legendary band, Foghat, asked Matt to fill in for Bryan Bassett on their tour. When he returned home, MBB entered and won the Western Pennsylvania Blues Challenge, and went on to Memphis for the International Blues Challenge.
Matt is also “Earl #6” in Roger Earl’s band, Earl and the Agitators.
The Matt Barranti Band is currently in the studio working on new material.
