MJT is a musical force of nature and long-time fixture of Long Island’s live music scene. The Godfrey brothers’ musical trifecta is built on Matt’s ambidextrous virtuosity, playing simultaneous keyboards and synth bass, Jordan’s bombastic, edge-of-your-seat drumming and David’s atmospheric chord melody guitar parts and soulful vocals. The Godfrey brothers’ magic has captivated audiences opening for Slash and Miles Kennedy and backing diverse, national touring acts like Yellowman, Stone Bwoy, and Tash Neal.
The Godfrey brothers first gained national attention in 2009 by sneaking out of a homeless shelter to win the fabled Amateur Night contest at the historic Apollo Theatre in Harlem, NYC. Having grown up playing music as a means of survival, the Godfrey brothers are so close and familiar with one another, they are able to morph as a unit, moving through space and time with a collective mind share that is a wonder to behold.
MJT’s live show showcases the band’s unique blend of groove, heaviness, and emotion with interwoven melodies, complex harmony, counterpoint, timing, and sheer intensity. Heightening the sense of orchestral grandeur emanating from the 3-piece live band, MJT has evolved from an underage virtuoso jazz combo into a world-class musical powerhouse of epic proportions, delivering ambitious compositions without losing the energy and soul of rock music.
