Hi.  My name is Matt Petkovich, but my friends call me Petko.  I've been playing guitar, singing, and writing songs since I was 12 years old.  I played in a garage band back in the day, with a few small gigs sprinkled here and there over East Central Illinois with a band called Haywire in the mid to late 90's.  Years went by.  I went to college. Got married.  Had kids.  Started a career.  Music took a back seat for a time....but that time is in the past.

 Over the past few years, I've brushed off my guitars, dusted off my chops, and started sharing my music again.  I play rock music - just me and my guitar.  Mostly from the 90's and early 00's.  I cover a few older tunes, a few newer tunes, a few pop tunes, and even a few country tunes.  I play some original material.  Over the past couple years I've played shows from Northern Illinois to Northern Michigan.  

I hope you enjoy what you hear.  If you do, let me know.  Rock on!
