Matthias Lupri

Matthias Lupri (born Germany '64) grew up in Manhattan, Kansas and Alberta, Canada. Starting on drums at the age of 12, he played professionally throughout his teens and early 20's around Canada, including work with Canadian Juno award country singer George Fox and hard rock bands Full Circle and LA Roxx.

Once introduced to jazz vibes through a college music program and hearing a Gary Burton album, Matthias found a new musical expression and enrolled at the Berklee College of Music in Boston to study with the legendary vibraphonist Gary Burton. Since graduating, Lupri's jazz groups have toured internationally, and appeared on many television shows and radio spots.

Some recent jazz performances include major jazz festivals such as Montreal, North Sea, Atlanta, Litchfield, Ottawa, Seattle, Boston, Vancouver, Toronto, Halifax, Hartford, Edmonton, Minneapolis, Berkshire, and well known jazz clubs such as The Top of the Senator in Toronto, Regatta Bar in Boston, Blues Alley in Washington, Outpost in Albuquerque, American Jazz Institute in California, Knitting Factory NYC. Matthias' music recently landed him for the 2nd time on the Down Beat Critics Choice list for Rising Vibraphonist and he was also recently heard on the TV show “ALIAS”.
