Guitarist Matt Hartle has explored roots rock, jazz, country, and blues with many talented players (Joe Craven, Melvin Seals, Donna Jean Godchaux, among others). For his Spirit of 76, he teams up with a stellar cast of veteran Bay Area musicians to bring a fresh, improvisational sound to a deep catalogue of rock, roots, blues, and R&B. Their deep love of the many traditional forms of American music shines in Spirit’s unique renditions of favorite popular tunes; their sizzling chemistry reaches a boiling point in their original compositions. Well honed vocal harmonies weave throughout the exceptional instrumentation. Spirit of 76….contagiously fun, satisfaction guaranteed.
