Matthew did an incredible job at our wedding and I give him my highest recommendation to anyone seeking a top-quality, professional DJ. Before meeting with Matthew, I had already met with a number of Portland-area DJs and hadn't been especially impressed with any of them. After meeting with Matthew, though, it was clear that he was going to be the right pick for our wedding. He is professional, friendly, and detail-oriented. He was available to us throughout the entire process and was very attentive to our questions and requests. On our wedding day, he arrived many hours before the ceremony to ensure he had plenty of time to setup his equipment, and he did everything exceptionally well. He has top-quality equipment, and was able to mic-up our cellist, as well as to provide dual wireless mics for the ceremony (for myself and the officiant). We never had any issues with microphone feedback, inadequete or too loud volume, etc. During the cocktail hour and reception, Matthew played music that fit the moment perfectly, and he provided timeline management through occasional announcements, etc., but without ever drawing any attention to himself. Overall, he did an incredible job, and he provided the exact wedding experience that we wanted. Thank you Matthew!

Matthew was amazing to work with prior to the wedding he was so professional and so attention oriented. The day of the ceremony he moved from the floor to the gazebo for the reception and did it so smoothly I never heard the music stop. Having the microphones was so necessary, we had a couple planes fly over us and without those people would've never heard us. Having him announce areas of the wedding was helpful as well, without his help we wouldn't know where to go. Very nice to work with.

Matthew Woolman from Level 1 DJ Services was the first DJ we met with prior to our wedding, and it quickly became clear during our meeting that Matthew had the background, experience, and professionalism we were looking for, in fact we signed on the spot! Level 1 DJ Services will not disappoint! Matthew was responsive to all of our emails, remained in contact during the planning process, and offered a myriad of information and suggestions to help build our music playlist. He was very receptive to our ideas and followed through on everything from start to finish. Matthew even created our wedding day timeline and was flexible when I wanted to make a minor change. Matthew's experience really showed through at the wedding. He showed up on time, was dressed appropriately, had professional equipment (all of the toasts were audible and clear), and was highly effective in keeping the flow going throughout the night. Once the bridal party hit the floor we didn't leave until the reception was over. The music was excellent and Matthew had a way of reading the crowd and even took suggestions from guests. Matthew went above and beyond and we were so happy and satisfied with our DJ service. We highly recommend Matthew Woolman with Level 1 DJ Services for your wedding, you can't go wrong!

Our wedding ceremony and reception went perfectly. Matthew did a wonderful job. We were really vague about the music we wanted to have playing during our reception because we both like A LOT of music. We left it up to him to choose the songs and it was AMAZING. During the reception and since, we have been complimented on our DJ choice. Everyone danced which made me so happy because I've been to wedding where the DJ plays music and no one dances. Not the case with this DJ, he gets them up and moving. Thanks a ton Matthew!

Matt worked with my husband & me to ensure he knew the music we liked and wanted played for the dinner portion of our wedding and the dancing. Matt had an extensive song list and suggestions which helped us determine our "play list". He was attentive, responsive, professional and organized. For the wedding he arrived early and had everything set up & the music was great. I am so glad we used Level 1 DJ Services - it made our wedding!

Matthew, 3 words "you are awesome"! Thanks for being very patient with us and helping one of my bridesmaids' directions when she got lost! You made sure everything was exactly how we wanted and we appreciate you checking with us throughout the night. You, alone made our wedding! And thank you for making our wedding one everyone is still talking about. You played music all of us could dance to! My 60 year old aunt Sara from Alabama was dancing so much that her calf muscles cramped up at the end of the night and we had to carry her to the car. And she never dances!
Simply put You are what every wedding DJ should be. If they cloned you, there would no need for other DJ companies. Your intuition on how to manage our nightly events was amazing with the video slide show, songs for cake, introduction, first dance, and the special guest dance, plus you working the details of Jessica's brother coming home from Afghanistan and not telling anybody was a surprise. It was so amazing how you thought of the one song that connects them two as brother and sister. Jessica's sister played this song for him over the phone when we he was having a tough time in Afghanistan. When you cranked this song up right after our first dance I could literally feel the "goose bumps" rise on her arms. And to have her brother walk through that door was one of the most touching and and elated feelings I have ever had. I remember glancing over at her mom and dad and how Jessica's dad was down on his knees "crying but with such a big smile on his face". I don't think there was one dry eye in the building.
You, just thinking of doing this and the hard work it took for you to contact him in Afghanistan and keep it a surprise was astounding. I found out the only person that knew was her grandma. This just kicked off the entire night. THANK YOU for being our DJ and making it a truly memorable wedding for our families. I heard Jessica's mom came up to you after the wedding and gave you a big, fat kiss on the lips!!! Haaaaaa....

Be smart and book Matthew for your wedding! We couldn't have been more pleased with Matthew. From the first time we contacted him he was very professional, informative and straight forward. We liked the fact that he didn't seem to hide anything from us or try to "cheese" talk or "push us" into booking him. We appreciated his honesty and no nonsense approach to DJ'ing.
His 11 years of experience showed at our wedding. Matthew showed up 2 hours before our wedding and had nice background music playing a 1/2 hour before the start time during our pictures. It was nice, he got us in the mood for a wonderful evening. He provided the ceremony service and even had a separate sound system for our ceremony which was held outside on the grounds. The ceremony went flawless and I guess the music before the ceremony was beautiful. I got great comments from the guests during our cocktail hour on how beautiful the music was that I picked out before the ceremony. A surprise to me. Since it was Matthew that picked the music.
The reception was a blast. Crazy! But Matthew seemed to really know exactly what my family and friends liked for music. Because his choices of music had people dancing during dinner. It was very comforting and brought a huge smile to my face to see people dancing and really enjoying themselves so early into the reception.

Matthew really blended in and wasn't annoying like so many DJ's can be. He announced the right things at the perfect times, made people laugh at the right time and just let my family, friends and ourselves have a great time without being pushy. Funny as it is; he just seemed to let everything fall into place perfectly. Maybe, it was his experience and preparation but it seemed effortless to him to guide our wedding along without a hitch and he seemed to really enjoy himself.

We also liked the fact that he was so friendly, calm and cool to my drunk friends when they would continually bother him to play certain songs. One of my husbands groomsmen asked about a couple of songs that he didn't know who sang the songs and wanted to get the songs to play later. Matthew actually made a note at the wedding and sent him a burned CD with the songs on it. Matthew also made us a really cool CD with our first song and a bunch of other songs he played on our wedding night and sent it to us right before our honeymoon. We played that CD over and over on our honeymoon and talked about our crazy family and friends. What a great memory it was. This may sound corny but we also played our first song and danced to it every night on our honeymoon from the CD Matthew made for us.
We highly recommend Matthew!

What an awesome DJ. We used Matthew for our wedding last year. He really made our wedding night a success. From his detailed planning, to professional announcement and flow of the evening. I had numerous family members and friends come up to me and tell me how lucky we are to have a great friend DJ our wedding. I had to tell them that we hired him and have only met with him twice. This truly is a testament of how he seemed to meld with our family and friends and my wife and I. He just seemed to be one of us and allowed everybody to enjoy themselves without being overbearing. My goodness....the music he played seemed to be the exact song needed at the right time. His programming of the songs right after another really hit the spot and had our family, friends and even my grandma and grandpa dancing the whole night. We were all sweaty and hot from dancing but nobody cared because we were having so much fun. He even played an hour overtime since nobody wanted him to stop. We couldn't have asked for more. Thank you soooo much Matthew!!!!
He was extremely professional. Easy to work with. Very detailed and organized. Always promptly returned emails and phone calls. Was worth every cent. My other friends have used Matthew for their weddings and every wedding I have been to has been just as fun and professionally laid out.
Matthew is just really cool-he has a fun, confident and unique presence. Straight forward but not condescending. You know that he truly cares for his clients. The kind of guy that we just felt really assured that our wedding was going to be fine under his expertise.

What an awesome DJ. We used Matthew for our wedding last year. He really made our wedding night a success. From his detailed planning, to professional announcement and flow of the evening. I had numerous family members and friends come up to me and tell me how lucky we are to have a great friend DJ our wedding. I had to tell them that we hired him and have only met with him twice. This truly is a testament of how he seemed to meld with our family and friends and my wife and I. He just seemed to be one of us and allowed everybody to enjoy themselves without being overbearing. My goodness....the music he played seemed to be the exact song needed at the right time.

Be smart and book Matthew for your wedding! We couldn't have been more pleased with Matthew. From the first time we contacted him he was very professional, informative and straight forward. We liked the fact that he didn't seem to hide anything from us or try to "cheese" talk or "push us" into booking him. We appreciated his honesty and no nonsense approach to DJ'ing.
His 11 years of experience showed at our wedding. Matthew showed up 2 hours before our wedding and had nice background music playing a 1/2 hour before the start time during our pictures. It was nice, he got us in the mood for a wonderful evening. He provided the ceremony service and even had a separate sound system for our ceremony which was held outside on the grounds. The ceremony went flawless and I guess the music before the ceremony was beautiful. I got great comments from the guests during our cocktail hour on how beautiful the music was that I picked out before the ceremony. A surprise to me. Since it was Matthew that picked the music.
The reception was a blast. Crazy! But Matthew seemed to really know exactly what my family and friends liked for music. Because his choices of music had people dancing during dinner. It was very comforting and brought a huge smile to my face to see people dancing and really enjoying themselves so early into the reception.

Matthew really blended in and wasn't annoying like so many DJ's can be. He announced the right things at the perfect times, made people laugh at the right time and just let my family, friends and ourselves have a great time without being pushy. Funny as it is; he just seemed to let everything fall into place perfectly. Maybe, it was his experience and preparation but it seemed effortless to him to guide our wedding along without a hitch and he seemed to really enjoy himself.

We also liked the fact that he was so friendly, calm and cool to my drunk friends when they would continually bother him to play certain songs. One of my husbands groomsmen asked about a couple of songs that he didn't know who sang the songs and wanted to get the songs to play later. Matthew actually made a note at the wedding and sent him a burned CD with the songs on it. Matthew also made us a really cool CD with our first song and a bunch of other songs he played on our wedding night and sent it to us right before our honeymoon. We played that CD over and over on our honeymoon and talked about our crazy family and friends. What a great memory it was. This may sound corny but we also played our first song and danced to it every night on our honeymoon from the CD Matthew made for us.
We highly recommend Matthew!

We thoroughly enjoyed having Chris as our DJ. He was very responsive when we inquired about his services. All of our guests commented on how much they enjoyed the music he was playing. He even volunteered to help the catering staff with the chair set up before the reception! We would definitely give Level 1 the highest recommendation possible

Matthew rocked the party! He showed up early to set up, the sound system was great and he played great music. On the music front, he really asked the right questions and delivered in terms of playing what we wanted to hear. We only gave him a handful of must-have songs and he did the rest. He was dressed sharp at the wedding and people really had a great time dancing! Matthew is a great DJ and I'd recommend him to anyone!

As a high end video production company I have worked with hundreds of wedding and associated vendors but I must say that Matthew from Level 1 DJ Services had to be the most professional, courteous and amazing DJ we have ever worked with. From his time of arrival till the very end his energy level was at 110 percent, something you don't see too often. As far as his DJ show, OUTSTANDING music selection on top of great mixing to get a major crowd off there feet for the entire evening.
I will personally recommend Level 1 DJs to all my clients.
