“Travel to Daufuskie Island, SC! Get your copy of Wendell Matthews’ CD while you’re there as well. We’ve got a long summer ahead of us. Why not get in the hammock under a live oak, listen to some original tunes like “The Ballad of Alice Flagg” and “Mean Ole Gator”

“I love Beneath the Reefer Moon by Wendell Matthews! It makes me long for a place that I’ve never been to before. His soothing voice accompanied by acoustic guitar allows you to escape the troubles and towers of mankind and cure the city blues. It’s often funny, sometimes touching, and winds throughout the culture and landscape of the Lowcountry. It’s perfect for sitting outside with close friends, the drink of your choice, and a good dog.”

“Beneath the Reefer Moon" GOOD MAN, GREAT SONG. Wendell, you nailed it! Thanks so much, our fans appreciate it! ♫♪♫♪♪♪♫ Roger Pinckney Xi, author "Reefer Moon”


“I listened to your CD 'Beneath the Reefer Moon', again late last night. It is terrific! So soothing & very enjoyable to listen to. Great music & singing!! :-) Wish I had discovered you sooner!”

“Part of our vacation-- We enjoy hearing Wendell every summer during our vacation to Myrtle. we have his Cd and play it all the time. highly recommended!”

“(Biminis Oyster Bar, High Point and Greensboro, NC) Wendell doesn't need an audition. He's been a mainstay in Myrtle Beach area for many years and has played several times at High Point Biminis.”

“great songs-- we heard this singer at Hannah Banana's and he is one heck of a songwriter! his covers were cool, too. not the usual classic rock and radio crap everybody else does.”

“All the stars and most assuredly the moon will be in alignment this weekend to Destination Lowcountry for all of our music loving friends not to mention our island adventure seekers. You have two choices to listen to some original music by musical maestro Mattthews (Wendell that is, not Dave) on the Savannah side of the River on Tybee Island this Saturday during the Tybee Island PiratesFest. Seems Wendell Matthews is a plenty funny guy himself who writes and performs some really good original music. And if you miss Wendell’s original Lowcountry Daufuskie tune “Beneath the Reefer Moon”, on Tybee Island, an ode to Daufuskie Native Wordsmith Roger Pinckney’s enthralling work of fiction, “Reefer Moon” then jump over to the “Right side of the River” according to Roger, see Wendell on Sunday at Old Daufuskie Crab Co. at Daufuskie Island on the South Carolina side from Destination Savannah.”

“Entertaining on the SC Grand Strand, Wendell Matthews calls Murrells Inlet home and still writes, performs and appreciates many different genres of music. Now, after recording "damage control" those eclectic influences come through loud and clear. "Usually my CDs are acoustic, so this is by far the biggest project I've ever done. With the support of my fans, it was a team effort with more than 25 very talented artists, technicians, family and friends working to put it together." With everything from a heart-felt tribute to a lost friend, musician Lisa Hudson, to a Rock/Country song called "Dogs Like Me" and a redneck fishing rap, Matthews' "damage control" has something for everyone on this album... ”
