Greenhouse Presents: Baby Boy Bartels & The Boys!

Matt Bartels returns to the Greenhouse! This time with his full band. Don't hesitate for one minute! this is a show you should see!

Baby Boy Bartels and The Boys was formed slowly between 2016-2018. Mixing traditions of American Blues, Jazz and Country, we connect them all into a contemporary format leaning towards the guitar based California Pysch Rock roots of singer/songwriter, Matthew "Baby Boy" Bartels. Described as Urban Folk, Americana Blues or simply Rhythm and Blues, their debut record "The Ballad of Johnny Loveless" is a concept record that documents the life and death of Johnny Loveless. It revolves around themes of grief, redemption, self realization and rebirth with instrumentation ranging from horns, to harmonica to double harp to banjo.

We pay tribute to the artists that inspired us as well. The full horn sections of Rhythm and Blues, the lonely twangy strings of country, the bouncing intricacies of traditional jazz and the grittiness of the Delta Blues. We incorporate these styles into our live set with selections from the catalogues of Willie Nelson, Professor Longhair, T-Bone Walker, Fats Domino and more.
