The Exchange’s Listening Room Presents The Bennett Matteo Band

Bennett Matteo Band (BMB) is a collective of brilliant musicians led by guitarist and writer Gino Matteo and vocal powerhouse Jade Bennett. Extremely improvisational while having their feet planted in Roots music, BMB is a breath of fresh air to the music world. BMB's experimentation and refusal to take themselves seriously has made every show an experience.

BMB will perform at The Exchange's listening room Wednesday, July 27th beginning at 7 p.m. If you would like to attend in person at 24 East Main Street in Bloomsburg, limited seats are available. Call 570-317-2596 or e-mail Exchange@ExchangeArts.org to reserve yours -- walk-ins are allowed if they have the room. Donations are accepted at the door, BYOB permitted. Vaccinated guests only, and masks are required.
