Mátyás Pribojszki


"Matyas is an impressive virtuoso harmonica player and has an original style.
He also has a very nice singing voice, and his band kicks the ass of many US bands!"

 /Rick Estrin/

"Mátyás Pribojszki is one of the finest young harp players to emerge from Eastern Europe. He plays both traditional and contemporary blues harmonica styles with a practised assurance which belies his years and his tone, phrasing and timing are right on the money.
This is a man to watch!" – was a short but apposite intro about Mátyás by Steve Baker, the prestigous British harmonica artist.

Mátyás Pribojszki is a 42-year-old man in command of a full range of creative talents – he appreciates all the legendary blues harp masters who inspired him, but next to being faithful to traditional roots, he builds his own contemporary style which will probably open a new chapter in harmonica playing – and not only in the blues genre alone.

Mátyás is out touring and performing, from one country to another and proving, festival after festival, that he is not only a true harmonica talent, but a singer, a songwriter and an amazing showman as well. He brings people to listen to his music, and to dance to his highly energetic live performances. He always manages to grabb the attention of the audience, night after night in a varied showcase of entertainment that doesn't rely on any rules and regulations. Mátyás has already toured more than 25 countries in Europe with his bands and and jammed together on the festivals' stages with such great blues icons as Charlie Musselwhite (USA), Bob Margolin (USA), Duke Robillard (USA), Alex Schultz (USA), Howard Tate (USA), Guitar Shorty (USA), Otis Grand (UK), Carlos Del Junco (CAN), Herbie Goins (USA), Paul Lamb (UK), Andy J. Forest (USA), Tino Gonzales (USA) and from the new European generation e.g. Enrico Crivellaro (I), B.B. & the Blues Shacks (D), Ian Siegal (UK), Mike Sponza (I), Raphael Wressnig (A) and many others.

He started playing the harmonica at the age of 15, when he listened to a rare recording of the late Sonny Boy Williamson. In 1995 he founded his first band, the Blues Fools. The band’s reputation quickly grew, and the band became the most well-known Hungarian blues band on the European blues scene. During the 10 successful years together with his Blues Fools Mátyás recorded three albums with them.

In January 2004 Mátyás invited some new, mostly jazz-influenced professional musicians to form the Mátyás Pribojszki Band. His purpose with this main project is to achieve progressive music goals with a multi-genre band in which each member has great experience. They first album, titled „Flavours” (released in January 2005) contains entirely original contemporary compositions testify to the varied and accomplished art of Mátyás' quartet, together with their perception and mastery of other genres. For this album Mátyás specially invited three of his contemporary guitarist friends such as Ian Siegal (UK), Little G. (H), and Mike Sponza (I).
In 2006 Mátyás and his mesmerizing high quartet has just come back from a very inspiring tour in Belgium, with re-arranged songs, and lots of new impressions, back in Budapest, still inspired, they have decided to record a live dvd „Live in Budapest”a very dynamic club gig on the city’s popular A38 concert ship.
In 2008 May the Mátyás Pribojszki Band have made they new , and one of the best, contemporary blues recording, titled „How many more?”, and this brand-new, high class cd is the first golden record of the band!

In March 2009. Mátyás and his Austria’s blues brother Ripoff Raskolnikov released their brand-new acoustic album, titled „Room for two”.
In August 2010. the Mátyás Pribojszki Band have made a brand-new, 100% live cd, titled „Boogie on the Ship”. This is a very dynamic,real and fun blues album with full of great improvizations, and solos.

The other hand Matyas Pribojszki was a member of the jury and invited artist at the World Harmonica Festival in Trossingen, Germany 2009, and also at the Baltic-Nordic Harmonica Festival in Parnu, Estonia, 2011.

In 2013. Matyas and his band have worked on they brand-new cd, and some new video too…The latest album „Treat”  has came out on 19th September 2013.

The 2014. was a very successful year for Matyas. He has been playing all around Europe (Hungary, Austria, Germany, The Netherlands, Belgium, Slovakia, France...) and his dream came true, because he did a great one month  tour in the USA with Little G. Weevil from Atlanta to Louisiana, through Memphis to Texas, and Kansas...

The latest (5th ) Matyas Pribojszki Band – “My stories” cd is out in summer 2016. With some real American blues icons as special guests like Charlie Musselwhite, Bob Margolin, and some younger blues ambassadors like Kid Andersen (USA), Andy J. Forest (USA), Raphael Wressnig (A), Little G. Weevil (USA/H), Bill Barrett (USA), Ryan Donohue (USA), Ripoff Raskolnikov (A) and Zoltán Nemes (H).

The new cd includes 12 songs, 11 new originals of Mátyás Pribojszki, and one cover of Wee Willie Wayne. Songs about women, disappointments, delights, losses, traveling, experiences throughout the range of emotions… So all about the Life. Real stories…


The Mátyás Pribojszki Band are:

Mátyás Pribojszki-harmonica, vocal, Ferenc Szász-guitar, Daniel Molnár-drums,László Csizmadia-bass.

Besides his musician career, as a most amazing world-class jazz/blues harmonica performer, Mátyás is the official endorser of the Hohner harmonicas http://www.playhohner.com/artists/matyas-pribojszki and he has a special harmonica online store too: www.harmonica.hu 
On the other hand, he has dozens of young harmonica students in Hungary and Mátyás also the author of a Hungarian harmonica school-book for beginners, titled “Harp School”: „Herfli Suli” – www.herflisuli.hu 

”Mátyás Pribojszki is definitely a brilliant instrumentalist; his tasteful play can by all means compete with the best harmonica players of the blues planet. But the most interesting fact is probably that he is clearly on his way to a very personal and expressive style of his own that will help to redefine the role of his modest instrument in the close future. Thanks Matt, for your warm music.
Besides: the band sounds just great!” – quoted by the great master, Jean-Jacques Milteau.
