I am local musician in Boston and owner of Soundscape Tours (www.soundscape-tours.com) I moved here in 2007 to join a band and have played in some of the best (and dingiest) venues in town! I believe the best way to experience a city is through its music. My goal is to promote Boston’s music scene through celebrating the city’s significant impact on jazz, folk, and rock and roll in the 20th century. Whether you’re a longtime resident or visitor, I hope my tour inspires you to check out Boston bands and support live music in Boston and beyond.

Matt is very knowledgeable and has musical snippets to go along with the content. Interesting, easy walk and a must for anyone with a love for music and it’s Boston roots.

This tour exceeded expectations and was amazing! He played music, showed us how regular looking spots had a deep music history, and had wicked cool visuals. Matt was a very thoughtful guide (and knowledgeable and genuinely excited about the history and tidbits without being too overwhelming or coming off like a professor) and adapted as we went along to meet the needs and interests of the group. There were Boston locals on the tour and they also remarked how cool it was to see the city from a different angle. He did reach out before the tour to see what we would be interesting in learning about. So, it was extra cool to see him incorporate different things for each person on the tour. The pace was also great - just the right amount of sound, visuals, and walking. What was neat was how he ended by concluding the tour by a live music venue that has Berklee College students play during the day. There was no pressure to buy a drink/food or even go in and yet we all did and enjoyed the trio playing. I HIGHLY recommend booking with Matt and it is something I am going to share with friends.

Matt couldn’t have been a better host. A musician, Rock and Roll geek, and super good guy for both me and my 14 year old. His particular affinity for Lou Reed and the Velvet Underground spoke to us, as well as his knowledge of the more obscure aspects of the Boston music scene. A great option for those looking to do something outside the normal Boston tourism.

It was really cool to learn who influenced the music scene in Boston. Matt was a great guy, you could tell he knew what he was talking about.

Three words: Take this tour!! Matt is friendly and so knowledgeable about his content. He made the tour interesting at every stop with audio clips, pictures, album covers, etc used to flesh out the stories and history he shared. I’m a big music lover and this tour taught me so much… I feel like I will call on something Matt taught me during pub trivia someday. The facts are just that detailed. The leisurely trek around Boston was great too, especially if it’s your first time in the city. I feel like we got more than we bargained for because Matt knows a lot about Boston itself and would occasionally throw in a tidbit unrelated to the music history. Truly can’t say enough good things, this will be a highlight of our trip!

This was a super-fun and educational tour. Matt takes you to a number of sites that have played important roles in rock music history in Boston. But the tour is so much more than that. Matt comes equipped with a messenger bag jam-packed with LPs, magazines, assorted ephemera and a bluetooth speaker connected to his phone, through which he plays music, excerpts from radio interviews, etc. He's like a walking multimedia experience. WIth all the fun bits of trivia in addition, and the fascinating stories rock musicians past and present, the experience was an entirely enjoyable way to spend a morning. PS ... thanks for the Minor Alps recommendation!
