Everyone Orchestra, conducted by Matt Butler
Everyone Orchestra conductor/founder Matt Butler takes audiences & musicians alike on a wild improvisational ride- 100% of the show is created on the fly, with interplay among the world's best musical talent and synergy created through Butler's cues and direction. A laundry list of hundreds of musicians, dancers, singers, guest conductors and community organizations have embraced the experience of EO in single shots of musical adrenaline to the soul.
Matt & EO have recruited players from the Grateful Dead, Phish, Dead & Company, Widespread Panic, The Allman Brothers, Furthur, Gov’t Mule, String Cheese, Ween, Umphrey’s McGee, The Meters, The Disco Biscuits, Yonder Mountain String Band, Galactic, and many many more. Tuning in to his energy, the band and audience utilize The Conductor as their pivot to the set mood of each passing jam as he communicates with the musicians using hand signs, whiteboard and assorted mime suggestions. Audience participation is required!
