Welcome

The journey of Matt Lazarus as a guitarist began with hearing Jimi Hendrix, Traffic, and John McLaughlin. Matt picked up a guitar at age 14 and never put it down again. He played and wrote songs and committed to music for his life.

With his beloved 78 left-handed Stratocaster, Matt traveled north to Humboldt State, where he received a B.A. in Music and formed the rock group Joint Chiefs. They soon became local Arcata legends and performed on the local scene for many years.

The more Matt played, the more influences - Grateful Dead, Santana, Jeff Beck, and Neil Young - changed and evolved his guitar style, which took center stage at the Joint Chiefs performances.
