Let’s face it, we’ve all been there.

We go to see our favorite group that we’ve seen a bunch of times. Last time we saw them, it was the best night of our lives. What an amazing show! We couldn’t stop talking about the show for days. So this time when they came to town, we got our friends together so they could witness the magic that we saw last time. Then we get to the venue. The anticipation is at a maximum.

And then we’re let down.

Every band has bad shows. Even your favorite artists can’t live up to expectations every single night. But the staleness that can often lead to these weak or boring shows, is forever missing from The Everyone Orchestra.



It’s a different band playing different music literally every night. They’ve never played the same song. In fact, they have never been the same they.

Matt Butler curates a new lineup for every city, takes song name suggestions from the audience, and conducts that evening’s orchestra to produce truly unique, almost spiritual, jam moments of unison between artists and audience.

I was so taken aback the first time I saw them at All Good in 2012, I did what I never do… I took  a video.

Matt Butler and The Everyone Orchestra are returning to the Ardmore Music Hall this coming Saturday night with an all-star lineup:

Matt Butler (conductor)
Vernon Reid (Living Colour)
Al Schnier (moe.)
Vinnie Amico (moe.)
Aron Magner (Disco Biscuits)
Robert Mercurcio (Galactic)
Durga McBroom (Pink Floyd)
Natalie Cressman (Trey Anastasio Band)
Ivan Jackson (Mighty High Brass Band)

Tickets are still available here. We’ll see you in the ‘burbs this weekend!

PS – Mother’s Day is the next day. Take your mom.
