The Everyone Orchestra

The Everyone Orchestra


The Everyone Orchestra creates one of a kind, interactive, improvisational experiences for music festivals and other performances with a rotating cast of all star musicians, artists and activists.


THE EVERYONE ORCHESTRA is a revolving cast of performers brought together by drummer/conductor Matt Butler for concerts, festival super jams and special benefit events. At the core of each EO experience is the magical co-creation of the jam when the conductor directs musicians and audience alike.

The Everyone Orchestra has performed its shows nationally featuring a who's who of the jamband scene and beyond including members of The Grateful Dead, Phish, Disco Biscuits, The Derek Trucks Band, Fishbone, Poi Dog Pondering, String Cheese Incident, and Adrian Belew, Steve Kimock, G. Love, Taj Mahal, painters, dancers, hula hoopers, firespinners, stiltwalkers, activists, a presidential candidate, storytellers and hundreds of others.

Through the events and work of The Everyone Orchestra, more than $100,000 has been raised for contributions to non-profit and environmental organizations around the nation.


The Everyone Orchestra encourages taping at all performances. No board feeds.
