Everyone Orchestra conductor/founder Matt Butler has taken its participants, both on stage and off, on improvisational journeys with the most diverse of all-star musician lineups at festivals, theaters and philanthropic events both nationally and internationally. A laundry list of hundreds of musicians, dancers, singers, guest conductors and community organizations have embraced the experience of EO in single shots of musical adrenaline to the soul.
Matt has recruited players from The Grateful Dead, Phish, Dead & Company, Widespread Panic, The Allman Brothers, Furthur, Gov’t Mule, String Cheese, Ween, Umphrey’s McGee, The Meters, The Disco Biscuits, Yonder Mountain String Band, Galactic, and many many more. Tuning in to his energy, the band and audience utilize The Conductor as their pivot to the set mood of each passing jam as he communicates with the musicians using hand signs, whiteboard and assorted mime suggestions.

Rugby Road
2015 marked the 25th anniversary of Rugby Road playing together. The band members Kenny Kearns (Piano and Vocals); Derek Smith (Guitar and Vocals) and Rich Pruett (Drums and Vocals) relentlessly toured the region in the late ‘90’s through ‘00’s, honing their skills while blending rock, soul, funk, and jazz into a sound all their own.
While the band wasn't designed as a "jam band", the improvisational element found in their sound quickly became noticed by the Wetlands movement in New York City, where the band worked their way into the budding scene’s regular rotation.

Over the years, Rugby Road has shared the stage with some of their musical heroes, including The Allman Brothers Band, Phish, Bill Kreutzman of the Grateful Dead, Peter Frampton, Rusted Root, The Dirty Dozen Brass Band, Eric Bazilian and more.

Rugby Road has released 2 original records (available on itunes and amazon) "Times Already Happened" and "Different Degrees". "Times" showcases the bands improvisational freedom and captures the bands early catalog of original material that evolved along with their touring schedule. "Different Degrees" finds the band a bit more grown up and willing to stretch their songwriting and production capabilities into a more consistent studio record.

Rugby Road continues to gig on occasion and is still writing and recording original music.
