What lies beneath.......

One of Matt's passions, other than music, is diving. When he's visiting Key West and not otherwise musically engaged (recording, performing, radio showing - ok we just make that up), he can be found exploring the waters around the island.
Matt was able to clear a bit of room on his calendar to explore the wreck of the USS Vandenberg during his trip to the Key West Songwriters Festival. The wreck was featured in the movie Virus.
Here's a photo of the dive...all that's missing is a guitar!
