Matt Rezetko

Born and raised on the Southside of Chicago in 1987, Matt Rezetko has always had a devotion towards rhythm. Matt picked up the sticks at the age of 10, and has been bringing the ruckus ever since. Taking cues from his instructors Matt Daly, Joe Arteaga, and Michael "Brownie" Brown; Matt developed a unique playing style, utilizing both traditional and open-handed methods of moving around the kit.

Currently, Matt performs with a variety of groups, and is not shy to take on any genre/project. Constantly staying ahead of the curve while absorbing as much knowledge possible, Matt seamlessly blends funk, hip hop, blues, soul, rock, fusion, and electronic without hesitation. Matt’s main influences include Adam Deitch, Billy Martin, Chris "Daddy" Dave, Jon Fishman, Nate Smith, Ahmir "Questlove" Thompson, Bernard Purdie, and countless others. Matt is extremely grateful for the supportive Chicago music scene and inspiring local musicians which keep him pushing.

Matt has performed/performs with: Sam Sinclair Trio, Crosseyed & Phishless, This Must Be The Band, DJ noDJ, The Smiley Tillmon Band, Vance ‘Guitar’ Kelly, Ron Prince, Johnny Burgin, Billy Flynn, Giles Corey, Donnie Biggins, RamZ, Zmick, Brown Bag, Xavier Holliday, Chris Crack, Shapes & Colors, and many more!
