Before reggae, rock, beatbox artist Matisyahu hit the stage at the Masquerade last night he played a very low-key acoustic set for one lucky gal (and all her friends and family) at a house in ATL’s Grant Park neighborhood.
High school teacher Bernadette O’Neill, 24, won a national competition leading up to the release of Matisyahu’s latest album Spark Seeker that landed the gold-certified recording artist in her living room.
“I just entered a confirmation code that I pre-ordered the album,” O’Neill said. “They drew it at random, and as long as I could meet the qualifications [like having a place for him to play] I won.”
Its not everyday you have an international recording artist pull up on a Harley in front of your house for a personal concert, but for this self-proclaimed “biggest fan” it was yesterday’s reality.
With his five-year-old son in tow, and supported by Dub Trio guitarist Dave Holmes, Matisyahu mingled, signed autographs, posed for family pictures, and took requests for the three-song set.
He kicked things off with “sunshine” at the O’Neill’s request, beatboxed with her little brother, and downed a couple glasses of white wine before roaring across town to hit the stage at the Masquerade.

Yes, 14 is the correct answer. I'll pass your info along to the group's manager,…
That was January of 2007, and they are 21 now, so I'm guessing 14?
