The Band

Meet the Talented Individuals Behind The Mathew Street Band

Billy Libkey

Lead Singer and Guitarist

In Feb. 9, 1964, my interest in being a musician was sparked. (Beatles appearance on Ed Sullivan) In Feb. 10, 1964, my interest was now a full-fledged forest fire! All I had to do was learn to play an instrument and girls would love me. Though I was only 10, I wasn't stupid.

Scott Gordy

Bass guitar

Scott was born and raised in Lewes. The only true local in the band. He started playing bass at 14. Scott started playing bass for his high school jazz band. That not satisfying his musical itch, he started his own band. They recorded a demo and played private parties for friends and neighbors.

Rick Trasatti

Lead Guitar and Vocals

Rick’s musical career started in South Philly. He started playing guitar by “accident”. He found himself laid up after a car accident and during his convalescence, he picked up his brother’s guitar and by the end of the summer, he was playing ‘Down by the River,’ down by the river.

Don Perrin

Don started playing drums in sixth grade. He formed Mother’s Oats with friends in ninth grade and continued playing school dances until graduation. Mother’s Oats opened for Iron Butterfly.
