Is this real?
Of course it’s real. What kind of lunatic fakes this sort of thing? It’s Christmas! What’s wrong with you?
Who creates the music?
Matt Bowen. You can contact me here.
Does it take you a long time to put it together?
Ummmm, yes. There are a ton of the details in our Behind the Scenes video by Ric Serena.
Hey Matt, will you and your band play for my cousn’s b-day party?
Absolutely not. But thanks for asking!
But what if I pay you!
Sorry, we don’t play for money. We only play for fun.
Please! I have money and I want you to have it!!
Well, give it to our favorite charity, Education Through Music Los Angeles. which supports music education for inner city kids.
Fine, if you won’t play for my cousin’s b-day party, then I’ll make my own bottle band!
Great! Just send me that receipt from donating to those kids and I will send you sheet music for our most popular song.
How did this come about?
Ever heard of the “Jaws” theme? It’s what we (Matt and Summer) would play on beer bottles while out with friends. Years later while on a roadtrip Summer asked me to create music for an entire Christmas Carol all on beer bottles. I arranged it, we rustled up some friends, took a video, and that’s history.
