Mario Matteoli
Mario Matteoli Mario Matteoli was born and raised in Eureka, California. He started playing guitar at age 14, listening to the likes of Hank Williams, Bob Dylan, and Clarence White. After playing in various bluegrass and rock and roll bands and a brief stint at the local university, Matteoli packed his bags with buddies Brian Salvi and Darren Hoff and moved to Austin to form the premier touring act, The Weary Boys. For the last six years his primary focus has been writing songs and playing guitar with the band, occasionally playing the odd solo performance. In November of 2005, Matteoli and friends Cary Ozanian, Mark Ambrose, and Matt Hubbard began work on his first self-released solo album, Hard Luck Hittin'. Hard Luck was released in June 2006 and has already received some great reviews from friends and critics alike.
