Matthew Charles Heulitt

Matthew Charles Heulitt has been on the Bay Area scene for 20 years doing session work, touring internationally, and working for a multitude of artists as a side-man as well as leading his own groups.

He spent 15 years with master drummer Zigaboo Modeliste of The Meters, and the last 10 touring and recording with Grammy Award winning producer/drummer Narada Michael Walden (Jeff Beck, The Mahavishnu Orchestra). He's also been a member of East Bay art-pop band MoeTar which landed him a feature article in Guitar Player Magazine in 2015.

The MCH Trio offers an opportunity to explore the jazz side of his playing which has influences of Pat Metheny, Bill Frisell, and John Scofield. Joining the trio will be Dan Feiszli (Raul Midon, Julio Iglesias) on acoustic bass and Celso Alberti (Airto Moreira, Steve Winwood) on drums.
