OPENING ACT: Matthew Santos
Matthew Santos has established himself as one of the most exceptional talents to emerge from the Chicago music scene in decades. With a voice consistently compared to that of the late Jeff Buckley and likened to a male version of Adele, he has been the subject of praise from such artists as Kimbra, Eddie Vedder, and John Legend. His highly acclaimed collaboration with Lupe Fiasco on the hit “Superstar” ended up being Fiasco’s first Top Ten single and received a Grammy nomination for Best Rap Song Collaboration. Santos unique, homegrown hybrid style touching on alternative/indie-rock/soul and folk genres has also put him on MTV, TRL, MTV Music Awards, The Ellen DeGeneres Show, David Letterman, Jimmy Kimmel, Lollapalooza, South by Southwest and more. The Chicago Sun-Times recognized Santos as an artist who is “organic and soulful and moody, full of interesting musical ideas and dripping with serious vocal talent.”

THANKS NORM FOR THE VIDEO
Norm Smyth, who has been a life-long Poi fan, which is 20-plus years in Poi Dog years, sent us video of Frank and the Band from their gig at the Paramount last year. Needless to say, Norm has his tickets for the April show. If you’ve never seen Poi in concert, we’ll give you Norm’s number. He’s seen them hundreds of times and he’ll tell you what an amazing experience Poi Live is.
