Bio

The Band
The band's guitar players and the bass player are family, and formed the core for the start of MPH. They had jammed together on occasion for many years, but had never put anything together. Then the band was formed just to play a one-time gig, just for fun. Soon after people started asking us when we were going to play next, we told them we were doing this just for fun. Well, one thing led to another and MPH became a regular thing. The common thread among the band members that makes MPH click is our common love for the music that we play, which is strongly rooted in the Beatles, and in the classic, guitar driven rock of the 70's and later. The style with which we play our music is reminiscent of that era.

See video clip for live peformance of Rock n Roll - Led Zepplin for a sample of MPH live.

Gregg Matuszak (Toosh) - Lead Singer
Gregg has a powerful, classic rock n roll voice. Much of Gregg’s past band experience has been in hard rock bands in the Green Bay area, performing songs by artists such as Led Zeppelin, Deep Purple, Black Sabbath. He is a versatile performer who is just as comfortable signing John Lennon/Beatle tunes, as he is singing Robert Plant. Gregg’s stage presence and singing style set MPH apart from the average cover band.

Stuart Popp – Lead Guitar
Stu began playing guitar at the age of 12 and is self-taught. His early guitar influences were primarily Eric Clapton, Jimmy Page, and Jeff Beck and later on Eric Johnson, and Stevie Ray Vaughn and Mark Knopfler. His first band experience was a band he joined shortly after high school called “Mississippi. Ensuring years found Stu playing lead guitar in many Christian rock bands, one of which (Master’s Lantern) produced an album. In 1990 he recorded a demo of original music with local Green Bay talent Eric James, which band later opened for the Bo Deans in a Green Bay appearance. In 1995 Stu entered a guitar competition sponsored by Gilmour Brothers music store in Appleton, in which he took second place. In addition to MPH, Stu still plays on occasion in a couple of Christian rock bands. Stu has a very melodic style to his leads and phrasing which translates well to MPH’s musical style. Stu's primary guitars are a Stratocaster and a Les Paul Standard, played through either a Marshall combo, or Marshall stack. Stu’s Rickenbacker 12-string is awesome on Beatles and Byrds.

Rob Popp – Bass
Rob is a guitar player converted to bass. He began playing guitar about the age of 12 and was primarily inspired by his brother and fellow band mate Stu. His main musical influence early on was The Beatles, Led Zeppelin and Rush. In high school played in a garage band, a brief stint shortly after high school playing in a talent show (we won!) and then, as a result, the local county fair. College years provided opportunities to play with various college friends. The subsequent responsibility of a career and then family kept Rob from pursuing any full time band opportunities. The formation of MPH in 1995 provided the long waited opportunity to make music with a talented group of musicians. What started out as a one-time gig for fun to play a parade has turned into a great experience to play music that I grew up with and which has generated a loyal following.

Scott Peplinski - Drums
Scott began playing drums at the age of 13. He was mostly self
taught. Early musical influences consist of Deep Purple, Led
Zeppelin, ELP, Yes, Kansas, Billy Cobham, Tony Williams, and
don't forget the Monkees!!
Scott joined his first band upon High School graduation in 1978
called Kevin Lee and the Crosstown Express. He toured the
Midwest and South for several months until the rigors of touring
took their toll. Throughout the next several years he played in
various local rock bands, most notably Red Hot and the
prestigious Rocker.
By the early 80's he decided to take a hiatus and go back to
school. A job and family soon followed but the music fire never
stopped burning. He was lured out of retirement in 1992 (By
"Toosh" no less!) to play with Close Enuff for a "supposed" final
gig. Well, the chemistry was too great to ignore and ended up
with the band for a few years!
In 1995 he was asked to play a one time gig with a band that was
to become MPH. In 1999 Scott formed a side band with "Toosh" on vocals called
Scrap Iron. The band broke up a couple of years later leaving
MPH as his sole band. The rest, as they say is history!!

Jamie Hubbard - Rhythm guitar
Jamie is a self-taught guitarist. He began playing guitar at the age
of thirteen using chord books and song books.

Jamie was influenced by several classic rock bands, including Dire
Straits, The Eagles, The Byrds, Alice Cooper, The Monkees, and
of course, The Beatles. Another huge influence for Jamie's guitar
playing was more personal - family. Jamie was greatly influenced
by his cousins Stu and Rob, who
