Matthew Frenette (1977-1979)

Matthew Frenette is another founding member of Streetheart and his legacy as the other half of one of rock’s greatest rhythm sections is still a part of Canadian rock legend. Matt’s fierce approach and powerful grooves were the musical foundation that Streetheart built their unique sound on. In 1979 Matthew left Streetheart to join Paul Dean’s new band Loverboy and the rest is, shall we say, history. Matt’s enthusiasm and commitment to give his all every night is apparent to anyone lucky enough to have worked with him and, to anyone who has ever seen him play. You can still see Matt every night with Loverboy, laying down his relentless grooves and injecting life and excitement into the Loverboy experience.
