If you are looking for a fantastic DJ for your wedding, then there is no better choice than Matt. He provides exceptional service, is responsive to any needs you have and is super professional. He has a wealth of knowledge when it comes to weddings, but always lets you make your own decisions and provides input when request. He recently DJ'd my wedding and did a great job with the ceremony, and kept people dancing all night at the reception.

Honestly, don't look any further if you're looking for a DJ - Matt is the BEST! From our first meeting, I knew he would be a great match for our wedding. He really took time to get to know us as a couple and exactly what type of music and vibe we wanted for our big day. One day he even took the time to meet my mom and I up in Temecula on a Saturday at our venue just to see exactly how many lights we would need so we didn't have to pay for anything unnecessary. We had such a blast hanging out with him!
My husband and I moved to Chicago before our wedding in San Diego so about two weeks before the wedding he had no problem Skyping us to go over final details for the wedding. I gotta say, our wedding day was completely flawless. Everything from the music to me walking down the aisle, cocktail hour and all the transitions throughout the evening was PERFECT. My husband and I were even saying during dinner how thankful we were for Matt!
Now let's talk about the dancing. From the start, I wanted my wedding to be a big, fun dance party. And let me tell you, it was!! I myself was on the dance floor for over two hours and our friends and family had a blast. It truly was a big party and weeks later (we got married 6/25/16), we're still getting compliments from friends and family by how awesome our music was. I can't express how truly grateful we are that Matt was our DJ - he really did make our big day perfect. The best part about Matt though, is that he really did become our friend in the process.
So if you're looking for a wonderful DJ and MC for either your wedding or big event there's no question - Matt is your guy!

My wife and I met with a quite a few DJ's while trying to find the right person to DJ our wedding. We are both music people and it was important for us to hire someone that understood our musical taste, as well as someone who didn't come across as the "cheesy wedding DJ" type. As soon as we met with Matt, we knew we had found a DJ who embodied what we had in mind and hiring him was a must!

Matt's knowledge of music is impressive. This came across in our first meeting when he dropped a few of our favorite indie bands, and we immediately hit it off! As we got closer to the wedding, we built or relationship and we were even able to seamlessly share our playlists via Spotify in order to get on the same page.

A few other things that impressed us about Matt: I wanted to surprise my wife by playing our first dance to a vinyl version of the song, so when I asked him if he could play records with his equipment because, he jumped at the idea. I also needed Matt's help to create a surprise mash up for the Mother/Son dance, which he was stoked to work on and definitely worked to get the party started! Finally, he threw an epic party without the distracting announcements or goofy games, which was also very important to us.

All in all, Matt was excellent to work with and was so excited to partner with us on executing our vision. He worked closely with out other vendors that night to ensure all executed seamlessly. The dance floor was packed all night! I would 100% recommend his services for anyone who's looking for a DJ who is a true music expert and who uses the music get people dancing, not his voice on the mic! His is a genuinely great person and we absolutely loved working with him!

Matt is a good guy, easy to work with, detail oriented. He thought of things we should add to our wedding playlist that we hadn't considered, and helped us weed out some things that wouldn't have fit. He came prepared, his equipment was ready to go, and he kept the show running on time. Great job.

We had a great experience with Matt. We hit it off right away and felt really comfortable discussing ideas. We discussed our musical taste at length and with Matt's input we ended up with an awesome playlist. The night of our wedding was perfect. The music really set the tone, kept everyone engaged, and got great reviews from our guests. We also opted for some lighting. At first we hadn't really thought about lighting, but ultimately decided to go with the up-lighting which really brought our venue to life. We were very pleased and would absolutely recommend Matt's services. -C&J

We chose Matt to DJ at our wedding cocktail hour and reception at the Catamaran Resort in November. He was perfect! I met with him twice throughout the planning process and loved his online planning system. It was great for setting up play lists (and maybe even more important, do NOT play lists!). He was excellent at understanding our taste in music and choosing songs to go along with that and also keep the party going all night long. Matt did an amazing job of keeping to the schedule. I loved that he is not "cheesy" (we hired a DJ not a comedian), is tasteful with his setup (no advertising on his equipment or handing out business cards), and was the perfect volume (you don't want to have to wear earplugs at a wedding). He is great at mixing to transition from one song to another before you get bored of dancing to the first song. People liked him so much, they even started dancing during the "dinner" music :) He designed uplights to perfectly match our mint accent color and set the mood for our nautical wedding and even took the time to edit a song for my father-daughter dance so the first verse merged seamlessly with the last chorus. We have gotten so many compliments on the music at our wedding and it is all thanks to Matt!

Highly recommend Matt!!
When we first met with Matt, we had a good feeling. He was very flexible with meeting up and easy to communicate with us. He guided us with everything we needed to know with extreme details about his roll and our wedding. He is very knowledgable with music and understands the overall picture of the wedding and guest.
Ultimately, my wife and I had a great experience with Matt. Our wedding turned out to be such a great time, and we had everyone dancing all night. After the wedding, we had guest telling us how great the DJ was and how much they loved dancing all night.
His ceremony set up and music was just perfect! Everything went as planned.

Matt does an amazing job! He will be very respectful, he understands what people want, and we be a real plus at your wedding. We highly recommend him!

Working with Matt was one of the easiest parts of planning our wedding. We had met with some other DJs, but once we met Matt, we knew immediately that we wanted to work with him. His online planning tools made the process so easy and we had a lot of fun doing our final sit-down with him and working out the final details. Matt had never worked at our wedding venue before, so he also met with us to do a walk-through and check out the site in advance, so he would be prepared.

On the day of the wedding, he was prepared, professional, and ran a great event. He played great mixes of music, and kept the dance floor crowded. We could not be happier and could not give him a higher recommendation.

Matt was absolutely amazing to work with. My husband and I hired him to DJ our wedding, and we knew we wanted to work with him from the first initial meeting. During our first meeting we realized how outgoing, friendly, knowledgeable, and professional he is. He had so many different ideas for our wedding.... from lighting to music to timelines. We could tell he knew his stuff and loves what he does. He was always very responsive and answered all emails and phone calls very quickly. While planning the wedding, I even hired him on the side to create a slideshow of our little girl for my husband for Father's Day. It was perfect and my husband cried like a baby.

Our wedding day was everything I wanted, and I know Matt had a lot to do with that. Our music was perfect, he was a great emcee, and the lighting was beautiful. We got married the week before Halloween so we gave our guests the options to wear costumes. Matt wore a suit to the ceremony and changed into an awesome costume for the reception. His energy got the party started and kept it going. To say we were pleased with him is an understatement. I would hire him for any and every event. He is awesome!
