Famed boxer Rueben "Hurricane" Carter says "You guys rock man !", following our performance at his TV series wrap party at Toronto's Rancho Relaxo.
At Montreal's Bourbon Street West "the house was on fire and the dance floor was jumpin' the minute these guys hit the stage" (Andrew L - Event Organizer)
As the house band at The Groove Kitchen & Music Room (www.thegroovekitchen.com), Matt Storch & The Usual Suspects continue to draw a crowd with our high energy approach to song selection, performance and unique blend of instrumentation. Reminescent of days gone by, the rhythm section combined with keys and a very powerful horn section remind listeners of times when music had soul and made people want to "get up off of that thing".
As a bar owner himself, front man Matt Storch understands the needs of venue owners. As a busy working band we have played to many full houses due to our dedication to promotion, punctuality and performance.
After releasing our first self titled CD we have continually been working on new material both original and borrowed.
Matt Storch & The Usual Suspects are available for private parties, corporate functions, weddings & live music venues wherever you would like to have us.

The best live music room in Cambridge, Ontario takes it to the gazebo in Preston's Central Park. What more could you ask for? No excuses, rain wasn't one of them!
This is what you missed.
An enthusiastic intergenerational audience captivated with precious moments of uninhibited 3-10 year olds 'grooving' like there was no tomorrow, something we as adults could recapture; Sault Saint Marie native Matt Storch and his Usual Suspects dress up pretty good...yummy :) gathering all attention with their extremely composed, diligent, seemingly stress free, mindful performance without 'kitchen' boundaries, a class act if I don't say so myself (and I know I don't), considering this entire event was delegated to one committed soul-Matt, with many volunteers.
