Sector-A Performs Houston's Favorite Rock and Pop Covers

In a world filled with wedding bands, classic rock and tribute bands, Sector-A brings a good old fashioned rock-and-roll variety show that has entertained thousands of people across the Houston area. We play classic songs created from the 1960's to 2020's. Our eclectic set list fits well with parties, breweries, bars, private events, festivals and any other situation that needs a little rock-and-roll excitement.




Guitars and Vocals

After falling in love with music at the young age of 11, Matt started  playing guitar every spare moment he had and it turned into a life long passion. He was inspired heavily by artists such as Eric Johnson, Tom Petty, King's X, Rush, Eric Clapton, Ritchie Kotzen, Smashing Pumpkins, A Perfect Circle, and countless others. He went on to perform hundreds of shows all over the Gulf Coast of Texas and even released original music with the bands Stone Kings and Iris Lane before helping create the popular rock and pop variety band, Sector-A.

Tools of the trade: PRS and Fender guitars, Mesa Boogie amps.




Born with an innate talent for hitting things, Joe has spent a lifetime refining his craft, experimenting with everything from pots and pans to the occasional unsuspecting household pet. But it wasn't until he picked up a pair of drumsticks that his true calling became clear. Now, his drumming style is a paradoxical blend of dazzling proficiency and almost intentional sloppiness, a combination that somehow manages to be both awe-inspiring and baffling. But make no mistake: beneath the self-deprecation lies a drumming powerhouse, a musician whose rhythms inspire even the most jaded of listeners. Truly, Joe is a musical enigma, a drummer whose talent and wittiness are matched only by his dedication to his craft. May his rhythms continue to mystify and delight us for years to come.
