In fact, no one really knew that the adorable, curly-haired boy “Dustin” of “Stranger Things“ had such a talent in him? The band “Work In Progress” also involves Sabrina and Carmen who are the siblings of Matarazzo.
They have amazing musical covers. Some of their works are- their popular “Paramore cover”, the band has also won raves for their performances of the Fall Out Boy’s “Sugar, We are Going Down” and also “Everlong” by the Foo Fighters.

In January 2018, he told The Aquarian Weekly that, Eddie Vedder’s voice was the one he was always fond of and that he feels comfortable singing his songs. To the New Jersey-based weekly newspaper he said, that there are groups that concentrate on a particular genre, or a particular category of rock when they need identification.
So, they don’t feel the need to play in just one genre. And they want to play songs, that everybody likes. He also stated that not many groups go from
Red Hot Chili Peppers, Paramore, to Sublime and so it’s a nice Journey!
In a promotional video of Canada’s WE Day in 2017, Gaten Matarazzo gave a lift to the 3 time Grammy champion in a golf cart. During the ride there Gaten Matarazzo joined Kelly Clarkson and sang duets, “We Are Family”, “We Are the Champions.”
