The Music weekends are all original music written by Matthew B. Mayes- lead singer, guitar/ guijo/ banjo player with legendary rock band Jupiter Coyote and The Raptor Trail. Some shows will feature special guest musicians. These all acoustic shows are a real treat, and they are private and free to Deerwoode guests.
Matthew B. Mayes is the founder of the popular Jam rock band Jupiter Coyote. As the principle songwriter and multi instrumentalist for the band for the past 23 years, his songs are filled with eclectic charters, heartache, and soul searching while musically running the gamut from rock, southern boogie, bluegrass and country rock. He has been playing music for over 35 years, played over 4000 shows and sold over a half a million records and downloads independently while traveling all over the US and beyond; writing cult hit Coyote favorites like Crazy Women, Rose Hill, Ship In The Bottle, Real Thing, and Becky along the way. His songs have been in films, commercials, and TV programs. True to the independent spirit, Matt also handles all the business operations for JC as well as other acts through his MBM Entertainment LLC. His business models are touring based and it is rare to find management that can say they have actually been on the artist/touring side. He is a music guy on all levels with a comprehensive knowledge of the business and a road tested perspective.
