Matt McDonald To Leave Perpetual Groove
Keyboard player Matt McDonald will perform his final shows with Perpetual Groove at the group’s Amberland Celebration later this month. Moreover, he will not appear with the group until Amberland which will take place in Lafayette, GA from May 23-25. Moving forward the group has announced that it will gig as a trio possibly adding guest players at select dates this summer.
McDonald address his departure in a post on his blog, stating:
_After seven years of making music with Perpetual Groove it is time for me to leave the road. Im writing this message to youa personal note, not a press release. Without you all, we would never have lived this dream. For your support and your genuine love of our music, you have my eternal thanks. _
This change in life will make it easier for me to be a good husband, son and fatherfor which I am grateful and excited. Because of this band I have friendships that will last a lifetime. Please stay in touch. And please know that I wish the rest of the band the best of luck at continuing this dream that Brock and Adam started over ten years ago now.
I want you to know that Amberland will be my final performance with Perpetual Groove. And have no doubt, it will be a good one. It is the perfect weekend to play my heart out, and say see you later to all of our friends and fans. I hope to see all of you there and on that long road to the middle
Tonight Perpetual Groove will perform in Winston-Salem at Corpening Plaza.
