THE PLANET SMASHERS LIVE AT THE HORSESHOE

“THE PLANET SMASHERS” LIVE AT THE HORSESHOE with TANYA TONON

It was The Planet Smashers second night in a row sold-out show at The Horseshoe when Tayna Tonon got a chance to talk to frontman Matt Collyer. This interview was like a walk down Horseshoe memory lane. As natural as having pizza and beer at home on the couch for these two.
