Early American rock ‘n’ roll took the world by storm in the late 1950s; parents didn’t know how to handle the craze around those hip-swiveling, guitar swinging rock stars. Teenagers were flipping out in the atomic age to this atomic new music. Fast-forward more than 60 years and audiences are still going crazy for Matt Stone, the young south Florida rock ‘n’ roll sensation who’s taking the entertainment industry by storm. But let’s go back a couple of years:
Matt Stone grew up watching Full House, the ABC Sitcom starring Bob Saget, Dave Coulier, and most importantly John Stamos. John Stamos portrayed Uncle Jesse, named for Elvis Presley’s still born twin brother, Jesse Garon Presley. As the years went by, Matt learned guitar, a skill that ran in his family starting with his grandfather, Larry Stone, and passed down to his father, Matt Stone Sr., who taught his son. He also became an accomplished musician on drums, keyboard, bass, and many other instruments. In September of 2015, Matt Stone first took notice of a frequently mentioned musician on the TV show, Mr. Elvis Presley. Coming down the stairs in a leather jacket with a broken microphone stand, Matt performed “Jailhouse Rock” for his family in the living room that night, and after that moment, he was hooked on performing forever. After a couple years of polishing the rough edges of his performance, Matt Stone has perfected not only a perfect tribute to his idol, the King of course, but also to all the other artists that his love of Elvis opened doors to. Because of finding Elvis, Stone became a fan of other artists from the era, from Dion and the Belmonts to Sam Cooke, from Frank Sinatra to Jerry Lee Lewis!
Matt Stone can perform anything, from country to swing, but nothing quite gets him going like pure old-fashion rock ‘n’ roll! He says proudly, “It’s the best music ever made, nothing tops it. I have the best job in the world, I get to sing the music I love, for the people who love it too, and keep the music alive. Trust me, as long as I’m around, rock ‘n’ roll will never die.”
