it sucks matt is leaving, for lots of reasons. however...
I think stoops will be awesome for the band.
I have been told he is a huge jerk. but he is sick on the keys, he will fit in better (imho)with the band, and he will bring in new fans!
as long as he learns sundance he\'s cool in my book.

Huh. I thought this was some kinda joke at first. Just like all the other fun announcements in the past (PB=TB, Jordan, Save)..

First impression is this sucks. I thought Matt brought the band to some of the best places. Then again I would love to hear some more organ and ambiance from the keys.

I\'m sure I\'ll get over it and continue seeing The Breakfast, or whatever they may be called in the future, as long as Tim\'s pluckin the gee-tar and Adrian\'s bangin\' on them beat barrels. Obviously Dangle Doo is expected to stick around!

ahh... well Matt thanks for the good music man

Ouch!  The rumors were obviously true.  Really sorry to see that things didn\'t work out in the long run for Matty O and TB.  All brilliant musicians - and not always easy to agree musically.  Wishing all parties involved the best going forward - luv y\'all!!!

i figure that I should throw in a quick 2 cents.   Thank you everyone for your support. throughout the year.   It has been an amazing year+.   During my time with the Breakfast I gave it everything I had.  I was completely consumed with things Breakfast.   It was a big commitment.  I have realized that the lifestyle and the music is not my thing.  I have a lot of respect for the guys and I think they are amazing.  It is simply not my thing.  Shortly after I realized this, I heard that RAQ was disbanding.   I contacted Todd Stoops and asked him if he would be interested in working with the Breakfast.  My intention was to leave the Breakfast better off than when I found it.  I feel that he is a kick-ass keyboardist and a better fit for this band.  

I know that I did my best.  I apologize for the times that I was "not in the music."  I am sorry if that affected you.  I\'m not a good faker.  Just like in life, I had moments of great joy and moments when I struggled while playing with the Breakfast.   It has less to do with the Breakfasts music and more to do with my own stuff.  It was learning process for me.   I don\'t know that I will end up as a musician at all.    I want to get out of the way and let them be a great band.  

I really value the interactions that I\'ve had with all of you this year.  Thank you for connecting with me.  if anyone wants to find me i\'ll be reachable through my myspace   or email(moestrei@hotmail.com) I am going to finish out the Breakfast tour starting from the west coast.    Even though i am leaving, these will not be half-hearted dates.  We are going to show up and rock and take chances etc.  

To life unfolding unexpectedly and beautifully,
matt o

Thanks Matt, thanks to you and the boys there\'s been a helluva lot of great music over the past year and I for one will never forget it. From the early acoustic shows at Jakes, lots of banging electric shows, and the residency ar Daniel Street it really has been great. I wish you all the best.

it was a pleasure seeing you play matt.  you helped bring the band to unreached heights in the key department.

i think that albeit sad, that this is a HUGE step for the band.  Stoops/Palmeiri/Tromantano/Dangle-doo is a fierce lineup.  Hopefully some Raq faithful will join board and add some hype to the future shows.  Burlington should be a SER scene.

Having these 4 guys play together should have most other jambands attention.  I can only see this as a positive.

and joe.  you\'re out of line.  as usual i\'m not surprised to see you find an excuse to miss a breakfast show.

yea for real tho matt know that you really did take this band to new levels. they were stuck in somewhat of a jamming rut before you came along and you totally broke them out of that with your out of the box playing and creative style and influence  and  experimentation and really just facilitated a much needed step in the overall evolution of the band. that will be your breakfast legacy, at least in my mind.

Wow. Guess I missed this thread somehow.

Matt- thank you thank you thank you. I was truly skeptical early on, and you absolutely stepped up to the plate in a BIG way this past year. No doubt your heart was in the music, I agree you brought this band to new heights they didn\'t touch before. Thanks for all you\'ve brought to the table and good luck man!

As far as the future goes, it seems like there is MUCH excitement about Stoops joining. I know freddie has been licking specifically HIS balls on this board for a long time, which is a great sign imo. So, I\'m psyched (but a little weirded out, not gonna lie.. this band will keep you on your fucking toes... JESUS!!!)

That being said, I can\'t believe I\'m in for a fucking Trio show. That\'s absolutely a let-down. Still excited, but only half as much. I thought Seattle \'06 was the last time I\'d be seeing three. Well, fuck it.. bring on the music and roll with the changes.

Matt, many thanks.  Your contributions to the band have been nothing short of amazing.  You are a class act and will definitely be missed.  Best of luck in the future.

well, its another pothole in the road of life: it sucks right away, but then you realize that you didn\'t get a flat and you\'re still raging. Matt, thanks for all you have brought to this scene, be it heady shakes, the jazz influence, a paradigm shift, rocking originals, the return of doughboy, wang chung, etc.

you will surely be missed and surely not forgotten. good luck with your future endeavors, and may you throw down wherever you go.

Matt O, thanks for sharing your music, style, and zen with us over the past 1+ year. I wish you the best on your road ahead.

Oestreicher will finish his run with the band from the 13th through October 25th in Erie, PA, and RAQ keyboardist Todd Stoops will then take over and finish out the year performing with The Breakfast!!

--The Breakfast


So is Stoops doing the Mass>Ohio>Vermont Freakout run? Thats a lot of travelling considering he\'s coming from NC. I also gotta question how much practice time will be put in into "Cartoonage" along with the Breakfast repertoire. I am hoping for the best.  Welcome aboard Stoops

goddammit, i love this band. and what makes this band what it is right now, is the highs and lows and bumps and bruises along the way. matt o brought many things to this band, and came in at a time in which the breakfast really needed him. his strong jazz influence has helped to challenge and embellish tim and adrian\'s style.  i could be mistaken, but i thought it was matt who actually hooked the band up with chris too..... !

that being said, i can\'t say i\'m surprised at all by this announcement, and it seems that it was a long time coming. i can\'t even count the number of shows where i\'ve actually witnessed the creative clashing between members of the band.... dissonance that strong radiates and i felt it on many occasions.

while i will miss matt, i am EXTREMELY excited to see what stoops is going to bring to the table. i feel like a floodgate of potential has opened, yet again, for this band.....

i certainly hope he\'ll be there for iron horse. i was excited to start, but now.... all bets are off folks. !!
