The 15 Bands I'm (not really) Starting In 2017

@ VOL 3 ON FEB 03, 2017

There is a lot of great music in Baton Rouge. However, Matt Sigur thinks there is one thing missing — him. So, new year, new band(s). He's starting so many huge, successful bands to put the Capital City on the map. You like jazz? Guess what he's playing it! Want something even louder? Good, that's more in his range! Like getting your mind blown musically? Get ready, cause that's his plan, to do that over and over and over and over again.
