Matt Hurray

Surf guitar specialist

Since the young age of 15, guitarist Matt Hurray has been mastering his craft as a musician. Based out of Balboa, CA, Hurray gathers his inspiration from the surf scene music that guided shipless seafarers who once claimed right to the beaches of SoCal with their wooden surfboards during the late 50’s and 60’s.

Instrumental Surf Music is the genre that he’s mastered and Hurray is considered a leader in it’s revitalization and origination. He’s pioneered his own unique sound, described as the sweet spot where surf guitar meets modern production techniques creating a wall of sound like no other.

Known for his lively charm, superb musicianship and magnetic stage presence, Matt Hurray stays true to his mission of giving infectious shows and making sure that his audience always has a ‘rockin time!’

Currently, Hurray has three full length albums in his catalogue, and two semi-national tours under his belt. He’s currently working on a follow up to “Bitchin!,” an instrumental endeavor dedicated to the pioneers of the genre, along with another album slated for 2020. He’s also performing live shows throughout Southern California.

Matt is available to perform as a one man show or with his supporting band known as The Thrashers. Please fill out the "Inquiries" sheet below to request availability for your upcoming events and celebrations...
