It's Matt Mahern and Constitutions devil may care ease that makes crowds kick off their shoes and let loose. But its their warmth, honesty, and mastery of the Americana genre that pulls listeners in and keeps them there. Their sound draws from quintessential American traditions country, folk, and rock with a heavy dose of bluegrass to drive the point home. With the ability to entertain a late night crowd or a family-friendly daytime event, Constitution has charmed audiences at festivals such as FoCoMX, New West Fest, Taste of Fort Collins, Bark and Bluegrass Festival, and at the Mishawaka Amphitheater.

Matt Mahern and Constitution formed in 2009. After the disbanding of the local favorite Motorhome, three of its members (Matt, Darren, and Ben) along with their friend and drummer (Pete) found a new musical home in Constitution. With Matts songwriting, they entertained audiences as a four-piece acoustic ensemble. Two years later, they released their first album Wrestling with the Daylight, which was the top-playing album on KRFC Radio in November 2011. A few months down the road, the band slightly altered their sound when Pete stepped away and Ansel stepped in on dobro.

In recent days, the band has morphed into a conglomeration of various local artists. The songs are the same but the instruments and the players may change from show-to-show. You could catch a six-piece band, a solo act or a four-piece acoustic set. Below is a running list of musicians you might find on stage with Matt. You might not know what players youll see on stage but with Matt Mahern and Constitution, you can always expect a good old time.
