Matt was phenomenal! He takes the time to really get to know his clients so that you get exactly what you want on your big day. He doesn't leave anything up to chance in that regard, you will get exactly what you want as long as it has been expressed to him. He even found a song for my reception off of YouTube, since it was not on iTunes, and was able to play it. AMAZING. He checked in throughout the night to make sure my husband and I were having a great time and were doing alright. When you book him, you will get him. He was great with my guests as well during the reception, very playful and kind! I would recommend him over and over again to anyone that asked!

Matt was hands down the best vendor at our wedding. It was definitely a case of you get what you pay for. He was by far the most professional of all our vendors and handled any issues that may have arisen. Our families are still talking about our great DJ almost 3 years later.

Matthew was great, he coordinated the event from start to finish. He helped with things that we had forgotten about and didn't know about. It was perfect with music, lights and everything going according to plan, even smoother.

Matt took control of our wedding to the point where he made sure what I wanted happened. I was completely absent minded of what was going on that day and he kept me organized. He made executive decisions when it was needed and it all ended up making the reception so much better! He has become one of my great friends as well as my favorite DJ. I recommend him to everyone I come in contact with and would trust him with any major event!

While working with a male with complete hearing loss and a female who has hearing - Matthew was able to successfully mediate when two separate worlds collided. Thank you for making our wedding day a fantastic event filled with bass booms and just enough sentimental sweet syrupy music that this deaf guy could not hear but the wifey enjoyed!! Kudos Matthew, Kudos..
