Matt Heaton & the Electric Heaters

Join us for our new weekly gig at Shore Leave in Boston's South End. The finest in modern Tiki cocktails and food, paired with the finest in instrumental surf music! Every week from 7:30pm we take the stage as your capable mixologists take the bar. (and yes, the picture over there says Sunday, but that was then and this is NOW!)

Retrosonic Thursdays

Reverb-drenched surf, spy, soul and a whole lot more. 

There's a dark wave crashing over the breakers. Reverb dripping, drums pounding the shore…it's the  Electric Heaters! The Heaters play Retro-sonic Surf Noir. Think James Bond, Pulp Fiction. Think dark, moody, and groovy instrumental music for the 21st Century. Led by guitarist Matt Heaton and his reverb drenched guitar twang, the Heaters mix familiar sounds with just the rich modern ingredients—like a perfect cocktail, their musical mixology goes down just right.


Expect whiffs of Morricone, the Raybeats, Booker T,  as well as the Atlantics and Link Wray.  Surf music for the cold north Atlantic, equal parts Dick Dale and Dennis Lehane. Third wave surf that hasn't forgotten the winter of 2015.
