Hybrid 8 String Guitar

Matt McIntyre is a versatile musician in Minneapolis/St Paul Minnesota.  He studied classical double bass with Christopher Brown (Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra), and jazz composition with Dean Sorenson.


Matt has a passion for making music for theatre, working in pits for Chanhassen Dinner Theatres, History Theatre, Old Log Theatre, Ashland Productions, Theatre Elision, Collide Theatrical, Brilliant Fête, Project Success, and hopefully more companies to come!

With a strong sightreading background, he is equally at home playing double bass, guitar, and bass guitar for any project ranging from orchestral to R&B to world music.  He also performs on a hybrid guitar/bass guitar, as popularized by Charlie Hunter, as well as doubling on mandolin.
