ESPC Presents: Matt Waters & the Recipe

June 23 @ 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm


Matt Waters is a soul artist from Cincinnati, OH. A unique blend of an acoustic songwriter & funk front man, Waters began his career at age fourteen as a young guitarist searching for every opportunity to step onto the stage. He soon discovered his voice, and began stepping out as a solo artist.

Waters quickly progressed as an entertainer & songwriter, by his early 20’s had already opened for acts such as Luke Combs, AJR, Judah & the Lion, and Tim Reynolds. As Matt continued to grow, so did the performances. From the local dives to jam-packed stadiums with thousands listeners, Waters refined his craft as an entertainer with incessant touring of the US.

During 2019, Waters played over 270 shows across the country from the ocean side bars of Laguna Beach, CA to the coffee shops of Burlington, VT and all the way back to Hilton Head, SC where it all began almost a decade prior.

During 2017, Waters began the recording of his debut single “Cookin Me Up” in Cincinnati, OH alongside founding members of his backing band, Jonny Disco & Jamarco Thomas. The group’s roster soon grew to include Nick Hach, who named the band “The Recipe”.

The Recipe’s many configurations & ingredients have brought the flavor to Waters’ live show & music videos. The band now includes roughly:

Drums: Nick Hach / Nick Meehan
Bass: Jonny Disco / Kevin McClellan / Sammy Reuscher
Keys: Jamarco Thomas / Josh Jessen / Dev Marvelous
Saxophone: Kris Keith / Eli Gonzalez / Paul Kindt
Trombone: Jason Branscum
Trumpet: Charlie Ferrara / Sean Fitzpatric
Vocalists: Charice Rodgers / Tommi Lea / Sony Grappone

All concerts are FREE and open to the public, but we do ask for donations at the break to help subsidize the payment of the bands and other productions costs. Bring a blanket or lawn chair, relax on the shore of Lake Erie, and enjoy not only some fine music, but the best sunsets on the northcoast.
Food and soft drinks may be available for sale, weather permitting, or bring your own picnic & cooler.

Our shows are family-friendly, and well-behaved, leashed dogs are always welcome! Smoking is permitted on the patio east of the clubhouse.
