Matt Pavolka

Matt Pavolka is, like, a dude who plays the bass. Some people think that he's totally awesome. He started out as a trombonist but couldn't take the derision. He thought chicks would dig him if he played the bass. He had it confused with the guitar. He is a redneck from the State of Indiana. He was born in Muncie. His parents went to college there with David Letterman. He grew up in Bloomington. Not far from there is a town called Raccoon, and another one called Needmore. He went to Berklee College of Music in Boston, mostly to get the hell out of Indiana. He played a lot of music there. He met many of the musicians that he works with to this day
