In 2003, Matthew Hughes was given a guitar while in college from his parents. He had never played before but decided to give it an honest try. For hours on end, he strummed and strummed untill what came out started to sound pretty damn good. The rhythm was truly reggae inspired and caught the ear of a friend, Derek Dinega, who also played guitar and so they began to play together. Kevin LaFontaine, another close friend, soon revealed that he could play drums and together they started to play and write original music. Soon, another good friend, Matthew Kline, who is actually the brother of Velvet Revolver front man Scott Weiland, decided that he had always wanted to give music a try so he began to sing atop their new sound. The first song was "One Way St.," a number that is still hot and is destined for the radio. They began playing a few shows as a group together without a bassist in mid 2004. Their first gig was on Sunset Blvd. at The Cat Club and it was a great success.
So began a musical journey that's seen three different bassists and a lot of dive bars. Recently, in February of 2005, the band found their bassist Mike G. who seemed to put it all together. The band as a whole, is now steadily doing shows around Southern California and they wish to take thier music to the rest of the world.
The music of Two for Thirty is truly unlike anybody elses. It is original, gritty and tough. The lyrics are inspired and well written and sound riviting out of Matthew Kline. They can play with the best of them and definitely deserve a spot anywhere on the planet. They play a timeless music that can be enjoyed by all and is.
