Virtual Performance Starts at 7 p.m. on LakewoodAlive’s Facebook Page

As a young person growing up in Greater Cleveland, Matt Moody needed an outlet for his energy and emotion.  He found that in music, and will showcase his talent during LakewoodAlive’s Virtual Front Porch Concert Series this Friday, July 17.

Sponsored by Bentley Wealth Management of Raymond James, the 2020 Front Porch Concert Series features eight musical performances hosted virtually via LakewoodAlive’s Facebook page on Friday evenings at 7 p.m.  The series, which aims to foster Lakewood’s vibrancy while offering a safe, family-friendly entertainment option, runs through August 21.

Week 3 is presented by The Exchange and brings to the stage Matt Moody, a skillful singer-songwriter and guitarist.  Blending alternative rock with elements of western and neo-soul, Matt’s unique style evokes a fresh take on what some might consider an un-orthodox 90’s pop sound.

Matt has performed extensively throughout the region at venues like Mahall’s and CODA, as well as at festivals like Brite Winter and the Great Lakes Burning River Fest.  “I love making music,” states Matt on his website. “If I can inspire you to feel what you ought to through the art I create, then that is a success to me. Music should strike to the core and rouse the soul within it.”

Now in its 10th year, the popular music series is taking on a different format to ensure health and safety during the COVID-19 pandemic, yet LakewoodAlive remains committed to enhancing Lakewood’s sense of community by offering free weekly concerts that families and all music lovers can enjoy.  Visit to learn more.
