An absolute must have!
We chose Matt for our beach ceremony and cocktail hour and it was absolutely amazing! From the beginning he was super responsive and answered all of our questions quickly and thoroughly. We had the opportunity to meet him ahead of time at a restaurant he was performing at in Sarasota and at that moment knew he was going to be the perfect addition to our special day. He has an extensive list of music selections, all of which are amazing! Our guests couldn't stop talking about how perfectly he played every song and how much his music elevated our ceremony. I would highly highly recommend choosing him for your next event!Sent on 06/20/2019

The Best! Hands down!
We hired Matt for our wedding ceremony. All of our guests loved the music and how wonderfully he played the violin. I would hire him again in a heartbeat if I could. Very prompt and quick to answer all of our questions. Truly a great violinist. Do yourself a favor and hire him for your wedding/ event.Sent on 07/01/2019

My husband and I hired Matt for both our rehearsal dinner and wedding ceremony after hearing him play at a local restaurant. I love his style of violin playing and the variety of music he plays! We hired him for the rehearsal, because I was honestly sad that I, as the bride, wouldn't get to hear him play a lot during our ceremony. It was the best decision to hire him for both! Our guests loved him! Matt is truly an extremely nice guy, and we really enjoyed getting to know him throughout the process as we continued to watch him play around town. If you are looking for a violinist, Matt is perfect!Sent on 05/30/2019
