Biography

The Matt Coffy Production Band (MCP) Started in 2004 with "Rock 'til you drop" attitude, singer-songwriter-guitarist, Matt Coffy, who during his musical career that has warmed up for acts like Foghat, The Guess Who, Alannah Myles (Black Velvet), Kingfish (Dead’s Bob Weir), Max Creek, James Cotton, James Montgomery, Treat Her Right (Morphine) among others in his past.

The MCP Band has been playing in and around the NJ and NYC scene for the last five years. With a trail of steady gigs behind them the band continues to soldier on, winning over new music fans. Besides the 100 or so, varied, deep cut, classic cover songs the band has under there belt, they have a tremendous positive reception playing sets of their own original material in front of audiences.

“You know, I found that we had a unique niche, starting this group and playing our own stuff, if you liked the atmosphere of a hot grooving jam band combined with the party all night southern rock thing, it always went over well, and it was easy for us....anyway, we were really floored that people as far away as France and Australia were buying our first CD “Above the Waterline” so we must of hit a nerve somewhere out there… ” - Matt Coffy

In Oct 2009, with there second CD release entitled "Scale Worthy” they follow in the same footsteps..we're talking caveman testosterone, cheap beer, turn it up. Louder! Harder! MORE!!! Take a listen to songs like "Happy Hour" and "Don't Stop" which clearly are radio freindly material with mass market appeal.

“….we believe the formula is -let it rip, besides, life's to short to play songs that suck. Just make it simple. That's what we had in mind when we started this project. We had a bunch of new songs, some made it on this CD, but, there were a whole bunch that didn't. We picked the ones that we knew were "built in" tunes that we could just whip out at any gig without a question, In fact, when we started playing some of the songs on this CD at gigs, folks were singing along with us, so we knew we had something. Now, the decision to go in and record a real studio album, where everyone plays the parts pretty much separately was new. We recorded our first CD, "Above the Waterline" basically live and it was real comfortable, but, we felt we owed it to our audience to work with a real producer who would help us with developing our sound one step at a time. We had approached a few studios and eventually settled in with Dan McLoughlin in Hoboken, NJ (Weezer, Dinosaur Jr., Breeders, etc.) who helped us tremendously in opening up the songs beyond our imagination. The songs on this CD just play themselves like a story while we watched the magic evolve in the studio over about 2 weeks.. Thanks alone cannot express the support which Dan provided in both his guidance and playing on this CD" - Matt Coffy
