Matt Rinaldi
Birth Date:  April 1

Hometown:  Glendora, CA


Matt loved music at an early age.  By the age of 5, he would sneak Led Zeppelin, The Eagles and Creedence Clearwater records from his older brothers’ and sisters’ collection to “rock out” to what they were listening to.  He has been hooked on playing the guitar ever since buying his first Deep Purple record.

Over the years, he has changed his musical styles.  He played in blues and jazz bands throughout his college career.  In the early 1990’s he joined a country rock band called South County (later changed to Idle Time), and kept busy playing the club scene throughout Southern California until 1996.  During this time he switched gears again, and enjoyed listening to acoustical masters such as James Taylor and Dan Fogelberg.

In 1998, Matt moved to Las Vegas for a change of pace and stayed out of the music scene until joining One Way Street in March 2001.
