Growin’ Up: An Evening of Two One-Act Musical Memoirs with Matt Butler and Mike Montali

Friday, February 23, 2024 @ 8:00pm



Outpost In The Burbs
40 S Fullerton Ave, Montclair, NJ 07042

Matt Butler’s “Reckless Son”: 

Reckless Son, written and performed by singer songwriter Matt Butler, was inspired by his experiences performing over 100 concerts in jails and prisons across the country.  This 60-minute solo show is described as a 21st Century version of ‘On the Road’ meets ‘Folsom Prison Blues.”  It’s a story of hope that speaks to recovery from trauma and substance abuse, the healing power of storytelling, and what it means to discover a deeper sense of purpose in life through service to others.  Filled with personal history, lessons learned from those behind the walls and Americana songs influenced by Woody Guthrie and Townes Van Zandt, Reckless Son is more than just a show.  It's a calling.

Mike Montali’s “Ballad of a Boro Kid”: 

Mike Montali, known for his work with the rock bands Hollis Brown and Fantastic Cat, strips down to an acoustic guitar, and tells the story of his life growing up in Queens, NY. Each song delivers insight into the artist’s upbringing, with family relationships highlighted as a major theme.
