Jersey City resident, Matt Panayides is a modern guitarist and composer. He loves performing
and collaborating with a diverse array of musicians, while being part
of the vibrant, creative music scene of New York. Since 2006 he has
been leading his own group and appearing as a sideman in world class
venues throughout the city including Smalls, Birdland, Cornelia Street
Café, 55 Bar and ShapeShifter Lab to name but a few. He also works as
a music educator in a wide variety of settings, from master classes,
to guitar ensembles, to running his own private music studio. His
compelling melodies, compositions and improvisations remain in the
listener’s mind long after the gig, employing modern harmonies, free
and structured improvisations, mixed-meter rhythms and straight-ahead
swing. His current group features a long-standing partnership with
Rich Perry on tenor sax and a rotating cast of some of NYC’s heaviest
rhythm section players including: Steve LaSpina, Thomson Kneeland,
Mark Ferber, Bob Sabin, Sam Trapchak, and Jeff DavisMatt Panayides is a modern guitarist and composer. He loves performing

Forget the Whale
J
Forget the Whale, a four piece hailing primarily from the 6th Borough, America’s Golden Door, Jersey City, includes members Alishia Taiping (lead vocals, bass) Dan Pieraccini (bass, keys, vocals), Peter Durning (guitar, harmonica) and AJ Zienowicz (drums, vocals). It’s been said, of all the things Forget the Whale has, a ‘sound’ is not one of them. It’s not that they have no sound: blues, rock, alternative, R&B;, country, funk and nu-metal all become ingredients for Forget the Whale’s veritable witches’ brew. “Forget the Whale is the band to see,” was one auspicious comment that emerged from their debut showcase at Rolf’s Restaurant and Pub (Warren, NJ) in August of 2014. Since then, the four have taken their show on both banks of the Hudson, filling notable venues like The Bitter End in the Village and Brooklyn’s Matchless Bar in New York, and Crossroads, 10th Street Live, Dingbatz, Dorrian's Red Hand and the Citizen in New Jersey. What makes Forget the Whale special? One new convert from Brooklyn said, “Every song is completely different. You never know what’s going to happen next.” Let’s find out.
