"Matt "Stackimo" Stachler (Bass) - BIO"

Stackimo - (Bass, B. Vocals)
Unlike the other members of the Noise Police, Matt “Stackimo” Stachler first picked up his instrument in 2003 at age 33. Following the inspiration of his heroes Gene Simmons and Flea Stack worked day and night at his craft. Being self-taught was a fairly slow process initially, but he put in the hours and joined the 90’s Punk-Pop band “Punched Onion”
Playing live accelerated his skill as a bass player and his persona as an exciting live performer. After the demise of “Punched Onion” Stackimo put together "The Down Beat Brigade" and earned a solid reputation on the SW Florida music scene. InDecision recruited Stackimo to their popular local dance band to handle the bottom end and lend his skills as a vocalist to the groups deep harmonies . He soon met Rob Fontano when he joined them in 2013 as lead vocalist.

In 2015 Stackimo left InDecision to form his own band and recruited Rob Fontano to join him in forming “Noise Police”. Stackimo is an active bass player on stage. You’ll often find him jumping around in his Adidas Superstars swinging around his Fender Mustang. Stackimo creates a solid foundation for fun, dance-able Rock and Roll that drives the “Noise Police” live shows.
Matt left Noise Police in December 2019 in pursuit of a solo project. - Planet Blue Entertainment
