Vacavillain Matty T

Photographer’s notebook: The Buddy Emmer Blues Band on July 21 featured guest artist Matty T Taynton for Harrah’s Monday Night Summer Blues series at Center Stage. Matty T hails from Vacaville. He isn’t your kick-back-and-relax blues artist. He’s more a high-energy, in-your-face musician. To make my point, Matty T climbed off the stage and made his way around the crowd playing to individual people and much to the delight of all. Great show; great energy. Kurt Johnson
