Matt Saldivar is a Mexican American, New York City-based performer who has originated numerous principal roles in Broadway productions, including The Wedding Singer, Grease (2007 revival), and Honeymoon in Vegas. He is a long time member of the band The Petersons, who performed all over New York over the course of almost 20 years, including multiple appearances at 54 Below. He has written and performed his own compositions with The Petersons but also has a deep catalogue of music that has only rarely been performed live.
This will be his first full evening of original work at a major NYC venue. A combination of roots, rock, funk dance and ballads, his music falls in the air of a biracial and 1990s East Village influence. Special guests will include old friends and Broadway colleagues, singing compositions in both English and Spanish.
