Matt Curreri (& the Exfriends)

Matt Curreri was born in Los Angeles, and has lived in Virginia, New York, Indiana, and San Diego before making his most recent move back to Virginia in Charlottesville. Matt Curreri & the Exfriends is a project that was given life after Curreri reunited with a friend from college and decided to form a funk-rock group, now with accompanying band members Jess Fiske, Gerald Soriano and Brian Wilson.
