Matt was our DJ for our wedding on Aug. 9th. He is, by far, the best DJ I have ever experienced at a wedding. I know that sounds biased since it was my wedding, but I was not the only one to think that. Many people came up to us on the night of the wedding and told us how fantastic he was and how much they liked the music. Since then, we have had even more people contact us to tell us how much they loved the music. This would include everyone from my 20-something girl friends to my 60-something aunt to my friend who flew in from Japan. He read the crowd incredibly well and made my husband very happy with his song picks. When he noticed my husband and his friends putting on Ninja masks, he spontaneously played a Ninja song for him and his friends. He listened to our requests, played every single one, and made awesome suggestions of his own. We really could not have been happier with it all. Everything related to the sound went so smoothly and Matt's professionalism at all of our meetings and throughout all of our communications gave us the trust in him that we needed.

Matt also did a fabulous job with the lighting. It tied everything together, transformed the room and just made it look beautiful!

We highly recommend him to anyone and everyone. The DJ makes or breaks the night. Don't have yours break. Hire Matt and he'll make it the best party you and your guests have ever been to!

Matt did such a great job for our wedding this past June. We highly recommend him to all of our friends and family. Everytime we met with him, we were constantly getting amped up for our wedding. Great tip to add, use Spotify playlists for songs that you do want him to play at your wedding. The guests loved the games we played and the layout for our reception was awesome. From the shoe game, to the "love songs" to the ending of our reception, Matt was wonderful in every way. Thank you for creating such a great night for our guests!!

I cannot say enough great things about this DJ! Matt is so passionate about his work. We used him for our wedding last weekend and he made the entire night flow so smoothly. I knew he was great because he did my sister's wedding 4 years ago. He goes over the timeline in great detail and makes sure every event happens as needed without being too intrusive. We gave him our ideas for music and themes and he filled in the rest. Each transition was perfect and I felt like I didn't have to stress about anything because he was on top of it! We danced most of the night and had so much fun. He also did our uplighting which made the ballroom look fantastic. I would recommend DJ Matt Phipps for any occasion (weddings especially)!

DJ Matt Phipps was referred to us by a family member of ours, and he ended up being the perfect choice. We were doing our wedding on a budget and as such we did not have money for a planner. Throughout the whole process Matt was extremely friendly and helpful in planning out our ceremony and reception. He kept everything on track even on the day of the event, and my wife and I were able to sit back and enjoy our day. His knowledge of music, and specifically his knowledge of wedding music, saved us! Everyone had a great time at our wedding, thanks in large part to Matt's skills in keeping the crowd energized. He was able to read the mood of the crowd and play the appropriate music. Honestly, I cannot say enough about how happy we were with Matt's services. Highly recommended!

Matt was the first vendor we booked for our wedding, and he set a very high standard for the others. While Matt was extremely professional, he also made us feel very comfortable and at ease about our wedding by offering his ideas and input based on his experience. Matt really took our ideas into account but also guided us with advice that kept our day running smoothly. He also kept us on schedule during our wedding since we didn't hire a wedding coordinator. One of the best moments of the night was seeing my mom getting down on the dance floor...that was a clear sign that the music was fun and keeping people engaged. We would recommend Matt to anyone seeking a wedding DJ!

Matt is as good as it gets. My wedding on 10/6/2013 was a huge success do in large part by Matt's ability to provide great music for all age groups. I know it must be hard to keep your 60 year old guests and 20 year old guest on the dance floor but he managed this seamlessly. We had so many compliments on our DJ choice... he really made us look good. Matt is an extremely organized professional DJ. I cannot over emphasize his professionalism as he kept us on track throughout the evening. He has an ability to switch gears and tailor a perfect evening for your once in a lifetime event. Thanks again Matt you really helped make our day special and fun for every guest.

Hands down, Matt was our best vendor choice for our wedding in Fallbrook, California. Matt came out to see the venue (it was a new venue for him) so he could map out his whole setup, which we found very professional. He MC'd our whole event, and spoke clearly, with confidence, and really made us feel like we had nothing to worry about. He worked with our day-of coordinator and meshed really well with the other vendors.

Our catering vendor literally threw our night into chaos. Matt's ability to quickly think and jump to action literally saved our reception from being ruined. He was coordinating with the venue staff, and other vendors, and orchestrated the necessary fixes to save our reception. In fact, most of our guests had NO IDEA that there were problems with the catering, all thanks to Matt. Without a doubt, Matt's expertise, professionalism, and sincere care about our day being just perfect for us, led to such a fantastic and memorable experience!

We have guests still talking about the wedding over a month later. Much of the talk is about the "party" that Matt kept going, seamlessly. We had a wide age range, in which all of them were dancing (16yrs old to 70 yrs old).

If you want a professional DJ that understands your needs and can offer great assistance in making your day unique and special, DJ Matt Phipps is an easy choice. I have since, and will continue to refer him to all of my friends and family in need of a DJ.

Matt was wonderful! My husband and I really wanted someone who was as passionate about music as we were. And Matt definitely was. We had a great meeting with him to go over his process. His website is so user friendly and convenient. We changed our minds about songs a million times but it was easy to change on his timeline form. Then the day of the wedding he was amazing with intros/announcements and read the crowd perfectly. People were dancing all night. He went above and beyond. Thanks Matt!

Matt made our special day perfect. He is incredibly professional and easy to work with. Matt was able to work with us to fit our requests into a playlist that kept the dance floor full all night. He also made an effort to get to know us before the event, which really came through in his song selections throughout the course of the evening. He also provided an MC service, and effectively guided proceedings without dominating, only speaking when he had to and keeping the cheesy jokes to an absolute minimum. His equipment is all top of the line and the sound was great, with no troubles with feedback or tinny sounding speakers. Above all, Matt is a friendly and easy going guy, and not at all phased by the sillyness and stress that accompanies the big day.

I would strongly recommend Matt for any event.

Matt is professional, responsible and talented. We takes care of and remember every detail (astonishing job given his busy schedule). We are (obviously) new to wedding and he gave many useful suggestions and advise which definitely significantly enrich our wedding. Our wedding slides was on a DVD which failed at play. Matt professionally took care of the crisis and, thanks for his careful planning, replay it using his backup laptop. The reception was a blast and it was so much fun. Matt is awesome and professional! We hope we won't need to hire him for wedding again (well, one wedding is suffice for our life) but certainly he is the best choice for your wedding!

We love Matt! He did a great job at our wedding. We got married at a rustic outdoor venue with some pretty rough terrain, so we knew it wouldn't be the easiest venue to lug a bunch of equipment around but the sound went off without a hitch. The ceremony sound was great and the reception music was exactly what we had asked for and more. During the planning process Matt made everything really easy on us. I didn't have to spend an hour explaining our taste in music and what we thought was cheesy - he got the vibe that we were going for right away. I would recommend Matt to anyone looking for a great DJ!

Great DJ!! Matt was very easy to work with and made this detail of our wedding a breeze. We had very little time to organize music for our wedding and that was no problem for Matt. We met with him once in person and then one more time online to go over last minute details. We gave him few preferences for music and he took care of the rest. He helped make our reception run smoothly and had many great suggestions that we used to organize the reception and dancing. Matt is very knowledgeable about many different genres of music and made great suggestions when we were indecisive or unsure about music choices. Matt made us and our guests very happy while dancing the night away.

We went into our reception not knowing how much of a difference a DJ would make and Matt made a huge difference. He was so flexible with the changes in the timeline. During our reception he was able to read the mood of our guests and found different ways to get everyone on the dance floor throughout the evening. There was another wedding reception going on at the same restaurant and without a doubt ours was much more fun. People from the other party were actually standing in doorway of our reception and wanting to come over. Matt definitely played a large role. To turn a very traditional Asian reception into a fun party atmosphere is a difficult thing to do and Matt seemed to do it with ease. If you're looking for a DJ for any occasion, you can shop around if you'd like but Matt would be your best pick, hands down. From the user-friendly interactive client area to his ability to work with you and your guests, he made it all about us and in the end that's what matters.

P.S. To the party next door: look him up for your next party. His name is Matt.

Matt did a fantastic job and completely exceeded our expectations. He goes above and beyond by giving suggestions and guidance in the planning process. The program he uses for gathering the music is easy to use and helps organize the itinerary. We could not of been happier with the performance at the wedding. He knew exactly what to play to get everyone on the dance floor. We had the special privilege also to have him do a live performance with his wife during our cocktail hour. Their performance was fantastic and it was a great addition to making the atmosphere welcoming and fun. Also he was fun to work with, responsive and accommodating.

Matt was the DJ at our wedding this past August 2012 and he was amazing!! I can’t stress enough how great he is and that I would absolutely recommend him to anyone. We met with him maybe 9 months before the wedding and we instantly knew that he was the one. He has such a warm personality and makes you feel completely at ease. It is unfortunate, but the wedding business can be a real racket and there are a lot of crappy vendors out there that just want your money and this was definitely not the case with Matt. He is super organized and makes everything easy and stress free. He has a great timeline and lots of suggestions on how to plan your night so it is exactly what you want. I enjoyed every minute of working with Matt and am so thankful that we chose him. Besides the ceremony, the music was my favorite part of the whole wedding and we received many compliments from guests on the music. I would go as far as to say if you have Matt as your DJ and are pretty well organized, you probably don’t even need a wedding coordinator. Matt was so attentive during the night and even got us drinks when our wedding coordinator was MIA. He definitely went far above and beyond my expectations in a wedding DJ. He also does uplighting and custom gobo monograms for the dance floor. If you provide him with a color swatch, he will match the lighting exactly. You will definitely not be disappointed if Matt is your DJ and he will help take your event to the next level.

When we were looking for a DJ for our wedding, we were really looking for someone that would play the music we love but not overtake the evening with a cheesy personality. Then we met Matt and knew that this was the guy. He was perfect! Very easy to work with. His interactive website is so awesome, we could put songs on the "no play" or "must play" list. From that he was able to figure out what our style was. He ran the evening perfectly. His music selection was just what we were looking for. He had the dance floor packed most of the evening. For the last dance, he had our guests make a big circle around us and it was a sweet, touching moment for us. I would highly recommend Matt and Choice Entertainment. He's professional, personalable, and very good at what he does! Thanks Matt!

Planning a wedding from out of town can be stressful and overwhelming. However, the day we met Matt, we knew that he was the right guy for the job. He was very responsive with all of our questions and offered the best options to fit our needs and budget. He went above and beyond to work with us for almost a year before the event to make sure everything was going to be perfect. I did a lot of research prior to interviewing Matt and it all paid off. He was able to customize a great wedding plan for our particular needs. The day of the wedding, he was on time and ready to go. Everything went smoothly from the ceremony, to the happy hour, to the inside festivities. Matt made sure everyone was having a great time and kept everything on track. He played all our requests that ranged from Greek folk music to Dubstep and filled in the gaps with great songs that kept the party going. We could not have been happier with our decision and everyone had the the time of their lives at our wedding. Don't even look anywhere but Choice Entertainment, all the five star reviews don't lie.

I am soo happy that my husband and I stumbled upon Choice Entertainment. That is where we met our DJ Matt! What a handsome fellow, as well as personable, professional and well priced! We were pleasantly surprised when we met Matt. His energy level matched ours and immediately we knew it would work.

My husband and I we love to be the center of attention, however not like in "Da clubs!!!" Although we don't mind fist pumping here and there, but we wanted our wedding to be fun for everyone on all levels. Whether our guests liked the D.J, they loved the ceremony, or just liked the food, we wanted it to be about us and our guests, not some crazy loud music. And so Matt read into us as a couple and fed off of the energy of the crowd of what they enjoyed and steered in that direction. Without going too much into a certain type of music, but knowing when to let the crowd enjoy themselves :)

The thing that set me at ease was that, Matts site made it so easy to manuver over songs we wanted, we didn't want and songs that were a must to play. Both my husband and I picked a few and then Matt got an idea of what we liked and took it from there. The pressure was definately off of us!!

Last thing, it was very nice that Matt knew how take the lead with telling our guests what was happening next in our wedding. If we lost track of time, him and the "wedding coordinator," kept it all going smoothly. I don't remember talking about that in the meeting with Matt, but it was great that he took the initiative if he meant to or not!!

You will be very happy and relieved to have Matt be a part of your wedding/D.J. He definitely had plenty of experience for our wedding, that people still rave about it tillthis day even though it was 2 years ago!!

Matt was the DJ at our wedding on August 20th, 2011, and we could not have been happier with his performance. Matt executed perfectly, keeping all of our guests entertained and keeping the whole reception on schedule throughout the evening, all at a very affordable and reasonable price!

Matt spent many hours with us during the planning stages, and was quick to respond to all of our communications in the very timely manner. Matt uses a web-based tool to customize the music and the timeline for the whole wedding, which was very convenient and easy to use. We were able to choose the songs we want to play and not play, as well as pick the music for all of the specific activities (processional/recessionals, garter toss, etc.) from the comfort of your home and at your own pace, which was very convenient. Matt has an extensive collection of music, and what he doesn't have, he was willing to get or use our own music.

Matt met with us several times before the wedding to discuss the specifics and work out the details. Matt also spent time with us to walk through the ceremony and reception sites beforehand to put us at ease and make sure no details were left out.

Matt has at his disposal high-quality equipment. He was able to set up his wireless and cordless system, including battery-powered speakers and wireless microphones for our ceremony and cocktail hour, as both of those were outdoors for us. That worked out perfectly. Matt also used uplighting at our reception to complement the decorations, which worked out perfectly. Matt also created and used a custom-made monogram which he displayed on the dance floor, which was amazing! Matt's sound system was also flawless, just like the rest of his equipment.

Matt also worked with us to customize toasts and accommodate some of our guests that incorporated visual presentations into their toasts. Matt stuck to our agreed plan for music selection, and played only the music that we wanted. He kept the guests entertained and the dance floor full of people throughout the night. We could not be happier with his service, and would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a very professional, knowledgeable, flexible, and affordable DJ.

Matt was an amazing DJ. He helped us find music that worked perfect for our reception and was still able to smoothly work in our requests. We did a special (strange) song that was meaningful to us and Matt helped us make it great. The whole day went smooth from the ceremony, through dinner, our first dance, to cutting to rug with everyone.

Granted, I've only had one wedding so my basis for comparison is limited, my experience with Matt was absolutely fantastic. I can't think of a thing that I would have had him do different. I'm definitely a music snob, so I did provide Matt with some music. He played everything I asked him to, and filled in the rest with his choices, which all hit the bullseye. He had everyone dancing all night and controlled the crowd like an old pro. I would absolutely recommend Matt and Choice Entertainment to anyone getting married in Southern California (and beyond if you'd like to fly him out). Thanks for helping make the most important day of our lives so special!
