Sioux City Singer / Songwriter to Perform at the Riverwalk Cafe

Mat d., singer / songwriter from Sioux City, SD will be performing original acoustic music at the Riverwalk Cafe, 196 E. 6th Street , in Sioux Falls, SD on Saturday, November 17th starting at 9 p.m. There will be a $3.00 cover charge at the door.

Mat's music sounds like a combination of roadshow Americana, hard luck folk music, midway country blues, hell raising gospel hollers, and bad man ballads. Mat d. won the campground contest last summer at the Friends of Traditional Music's Sioux River Folk Festival in Canton and one of his songs was recently chosen as Blues Song of the Week by BluesBunny ( Here's part of what Bluesbunny had to say about some of his music: "The world needs storytellers. The world needs the kind of people that tell us about that strange, warped world that we live in. People like Johnny Cash, Lee Hazelwood, Tom Waits or even the subject of this review - Mat D. 'Rambling Mary Jane Walker' introduces to the kind of low life characters that inhabit the shadows of every small town. 'Bikini Bull Riding' is dedicated to upholding those important things in life namely bikini bull riding, cold beer and those damn, dirty girls. That song took us back to a time when Bluesbunny thought that was all there was on the road to happiness. 'My Soul to Blame' is a cautionary tale of what happens when a man meets the wrong woman at the wrong time. Jealousy, infidelity and murder - it's all there. If you want redemption then take a listen to the gospel flavored 'You Shall be Free'." Mat will be performing his acoustic solo sets in the casual, intimate environment of the Riverwalk café in downtown Sioux Falls.
