Matt Feller

Matt is the other co-founder of Probably Whiskey and is an accomplished fiddle, mandolin, and guitar player.  Matt hates writing about himself in the third person. Because of this reason, his cousin Phil is writing his bio.  Matt is currently a college student at McDaniel College majoring is music.  He preforms and works in a variety of styles, which include, jazz, orchestral arrangements, rock, Celtic, Appalachian roots, and Scandinavian music.  When not swamped with school work or playing shows he likes long walks on the beach, pina-colladas, and getting caught in the rain.

Frank Sylvester

Frank is a Virginia native, growing up between Northern VA and the Shenandoah Valley. He is a classically trained musician and multi-instrumentalist, but never strays far from the bass clef. While Frank listens to everything from Motorhead to Mozart, Folk, Bluegrass, and Piedmont Blues music has always held a special place in his heart. He had the pleasure of attending numerous concerts and shows with his father, who is directly responsible for his love of “that old time music”.
