The Matching Shoe

Hometown:
St Louis

The Matching Shoe is a band from St. Louis, Missouri that consists of: Dillon Wilfong (guitar/vocals) Dominic Anzalone (drums/percussion/vocals) Ben Vennard (keyboards/upright bass/vocals) Their repertoire consists of both original and cover songs that combine the sounds of Classic Rock 'N' Roll, Art Rock, Folk, and Blues. Layered with incredible musicianship and vocal harmonies of their own, the band is made up of multi-instrumentalists who can be seen switching between their instruments during live performances. Although this might give them their unique edge, they have also achieved some impressive feats on their own. Among their many accomplishments, Vennard was a member of the Saint Louis Symphony and Anzalone was awarded first chair drummer for St. Louis All Suburban Honors Band in 2015 and 2016 and received honorable mention for the 2017 All State Band. He is also a member of the Jazz Saint Louis All-Stars. Fueled by the same musical styles, the band released their first album 'Out Thru the Window’ in August 2016. Their next EP titled “Don’t Hide It. Divide It” is set to release September 2017, which was recorded between St. Louis and Aftermaster Studios in Hollywood, California. Some of their big influences include Wilco, Johnny Cash, Pink Floyd and The Beatles.
