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 to every song and powerful grooves he created were a big part of the musical foundation that Streetheart built their unmistakable sound on in the early days.

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.
