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!

I highly recommend Matt's services. Not only does he have an extensive knowledge of music and knows how to get the crowd dancing, he also was accommodating to our requests. Music and having a dance party atmosphere was important to us, and the "vibe" of the DJ was also a priority. We were planning from the east coast so Matt accommodated an initial Skype meeting and two in person meetings as the date grew closer. He was very thoughtful and helpful in his suggestions. He was NOT a cheesy wedding DJ which is exactly what we wanted - someone contemporary, cool, and listened to our needs for our 20's and 30's crowd. He played a great mix of music all night long and kept the crowd dancing from the first song to the last song of the night. Highly recommend his services! Also, he was very professional, no cheesy "pumping up the crowd" moments just to hear himself talk like some egotistical DJ's often do - just helpful announcements to keep the wedding events at the planned pace. Thank you Matt!

My wife and I met with a few DJs before we met with Matt. But from our first meeting we knew he was the guy for us. His passion and knowledge of music, his approach to being the emcee for our event and his planning process were a perfect match for our style.

He was fun, knowledgeable and full of great ideas. His planning process was great and he had a lot of great suggestions for us to consider. His energy and enthusiasm were contagious in person and via email; he was great to work with from day one.

Of course where it counted most was on our wedding day. Matt was there early, set up both the ceremony and reception site and everything was great. He worked great with our wedding planner and with our Officiant and everything went off without a hitch. Sound was great during the outdoor ceremony as he had the knowledge and experience to ensure his setup could counter the wind from a beach wedding.

The reception itself was GREAT! Matt kept things flowing and everyone had a great time. He had a great command of the energy of the room; settling folks and setting up the 'events' and keeping everyone on the dance floor for the rest of the night. He was very in charge in a good sense of the word to keep things flowing but you wouldn't know he was there from a loud-annoying way. He has a great balance for engaging folks but not making the event about him.

Most of our guests were still at the reception and dancing up until the end. There were many disappointed faces when last dance and time to say good-bye to the newlyweds was announced as everyone was having such a great time.

In short we can't recommend Matt enough. He is awesome and you'd be very lucky to work with him for any event.

Thanks Matt for making our day wonderful!

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!
