Grammy-nominated artist, Matisyahu– Yiddish for “Gift of God” – returns to Telluride  on Thursday, October 15, a stop on his tour in support of his upcoming album Live at Stubb’s Vol. III.

The album looks back on Matisyahu’s extensive catalogue on the 10th anniversary of his breakthrough album Live at Stubb’s with stripped-down reworks of versions of fan favorites such as “King Without a Crown.”

Over the course of the tour which launches in Telluride at the pop-up club Denise Mongen hosts, Matisyahu and his band will present an evening of stripped-back arrangements that highlight the music that launched his career. The artist will take fans of all ages on a journey through the evolution of Live at Stubb’s to his most recent release Akeda.

The tour reconnects Matisyahu with musical collaborators from his early touring days, including Live at Stubb’s guitarist Aaron Dugan.

Previous Live at Stubb’s releases have sold over 768k combined albums and over 500k tracks.



Matisyahu, is an American reggae rapper and alt-rock musician.

Born Matthew Paul Miller, “Matisyahu” is the singer-songwriter’s Hebrew name, which became his stage name in 2004. Matisyahu’s performance style is unique, incorporating Orthodox Jewish themes with reggae, hip-hop and rock. Lyrics are spoken in English, but at times he incorporates Hebrew and Yiddish as a shout-out to his Jewish upbringing.

“Basically, that’s the theme in my life. Sacrifice. Following that inner voice even when everyone is telling you that you can’t do that and it doesn’t make sense,“ said Matisyahu  on Facebook about his latest release.

Doors open for Matisyahu at Club RED at 8:00 p.m.; show time is  8:30 p.m.. The opening act is Radical Something.

Show is all ages and tickets are $42.50 pre-sale, $45 day of show.

Once again, the event is produced by Denise Mongan of Beyond the Groove Productions and supported by Telluride Ski & Golf, the Telluride Mountain Village Conference Center, Inn at Lost Creek and the Peaks Resort & Spa.

Sleek and sultry, with a capacity of 450, a large performance stage, red ambient lighting throughout the room, and seating areas for a more private experience, Club Red is expected to become the choice music venue of the Telluride region. And Club Red twins with Denise Mongan. The place is the brainchild of the music producer (massage therapist and homeopathic healer) and a close friend (who chooses to remain anonymous).

Born and raised in Ireland, Mongan embodies the signature attribute of strong Celtic women. From pagan times, Irish legend is filled with strong women whose feet were planted firmly on the ground, but who were also non-conforming and enlightened enough believe in magic.

The seeds of Club Red were planted in 1999, when Mongan really began to hone her ear with great success:

“The two bands I picked out as the sounds of 2013 were indeed #1 and #2 on the BBC sounds of 2013: Kodaline and Haim! I just seem to have an instinct for what new music will do well and am a passionate listener. I tune into European radio, which is always cutting edge. I have enjoyed scouting talent for many years and now have my own production company, Beyond the Groove. Last year I produced three shows at the Moon saloon: Sea Wolf, the Cave Singers and Toubab Krewe.”

The music Mongan tends to listen to – and scout – does not include the usual suspects around these parts:

“No jam grass, no jam rock, nothing of that ilk, much more progressive. Much of it is European, mostly British, Australian, and new American. Not all new, Blitzen Trapper has been making music for over decade, but they are still considered indie. Beyond The Groove is my avenue to produce bands I enjoy, bands I seek out, and do my darndest to secure before they are main stream and beyond the budget. I hope to produce many more shows at Club Red throughout the year, featuring high-quality sounds in a classy, comfortable venue the likes of which did not exist in Telluride – until now.”
