Matt was the DJ for our wedding on Sept 2018 in Malibu, CA. He was professional, upbeat, friendly, punctual, and a great person.
From the very beginning, he was so kind to meet with my wife and I to get to know each other. He took down notes constantly and made sure to remember our story. Every meeting he was dressed professionally and spoke eloquently.
On the wedding day, he went above-and-beyond to help make this day go as smooth as possible. There was an issue with setting up the tables for dinner, and Matt stepped in to help (which we never expected or asked him to do).
He has a charming voice on the mic and kept the party live.
If you are looking for a DJ who looks and speaks professionally, who knows how to have fun, and who truly cares about your happiness, do not hesitate to reach out to Matthew Graumann.

5 stars! Matt was such an integral part of making our wedding so amazing. He is SUCH a pleasure to work with and was so thoughtful in checking in with us every step of the way during our wedding planning process.
He has great suggestions for music selections and is such a professional. I could not have asked for someone better to lead the charge for our ceremony and reception and would absolutely recommend him to anyone! Thank you again, you made our night so perfect!!

Matt did everything for our wedding from the ceremony music & providing mic's for the officiant and speakers, cocktail hour music, reception music and was the host and MC during the reception. About a week or two before the wedding we sat down with Matt and went over the entire day from beginning to end leaving no stone left unturned so by the time it came to our wedding day there were absolutely no questions.
Matt was very professional and extremely responsive. He was always quick to answer any questions we had helped turn our vision into a reality. We had Matt play alongside live musicians during out wedding and they worked together perfectly.
We would highly recommend Matt to anyone that is looking to have an amazing time with a professional and well spoken MC/DJ on their wedding day.
Thanks again, Matt!!!

Matt was absolutely fantastic for our wedding. Not only was he great, attentive, and helpful throughout the entire process, but he was even better during the actual wedding! He made our dream wedding come true by really making sure the wedding music fit us as a couple. He's a great find and worth every penny. He brought all of his own equipment, had a great variety of music, and overall was a pleasure to work with. Thank you Matt!

I absolutely loved working with Matt Graumann. He was one of our first and favorite decisions in wedding planning, and I am so glad we chose him! Matt is extremely professional, responsive, and reliable. He almost always responded to my emails or calls immediately, and was always very open to how we wanted our wedding and reception to run.
He provided the sound for our wedding ceremony, the music for our cocktail reception, and he was the Master of Ceremonies for our wedding reception. He is SO MUCH FUN and CHARISMATIC, yet entirely respectful and appropriate.
(There were a couple of DJs that we talked to that seemed like they just wanted to run our reception like a Vegas nightclub, with high-energy clubbing music most of the time, and unintelligible screaming in the microphone to get the crowd riled up. That is not the type of reception we wanted, as we were going for elegant, down-to-earth, and fun!)
Matt really gets the crowd up and dancing and makes announcements exactly the way you ask him to. From the moment I first spoke to Matt, he quickly gained my trust. He quickly understood my taste in music, and proactively prepared a run-of-show itinerary of the event that he went over with us. With his very fun and professional demeanor, he MC'd our wedding perfectly. I have full confidence in Matt running a great event, and I would hire him without hesitation for any future events!

Matt was the BEST DJ! He was the vendor we got the most reviews about. Everyone loved him and he deserved all the praise he got. He was fantastic!
Lauren · Married on 05/28/2016
Seriously, all the reviews are correct, Matt is the most amazing DJ!! He visited with my husband and I, got to know us, asked a lot of questions, and was really concerned with what we wanted. It was incredible, and he stayed in touch for the 6 months leading up to the wedding just making sure everything was alright with us and to see if we had any questions. Led the charge at the rehearsal the day before even! Day of my wedding at Olivas Adobe he was AWESOME!!! The dance floor was full, we had friends play a song live for us and he helped set that up, made everyone laugh and cry (happy tears of course), it was the most magical evening thanks to Matt. Cannot recommend him enough!!

We were so pleasantly surprised that when we first met with Matt he was first and foremost interested in genuinely getting to know us and our story (and not there just for a sales pitch). He is SO organized (great for me, the OCD bride) and brings a lot of great, new ideas to the table.
Stacy · Married on 10/03/2015
Matt was such an amazing DJ to work with. He is incredibly professional, helpful, hardworking, and classy. He was always willing to meet with us to make sure that we had the best possible experience and make sure that our reception was very tailored to our preferences. All of our other vendors also LOVE working with Matt! He even came to our rehearsal to make sure that he knew exactly how our ceremony was going to go. He really is the best DJ out there (been to a lot of Bar and Bat Mitzvahs/weddings) and I highly highly highly recommend him!
Mattea · Married on 04/23/2015
Matt was such an amazing DJ. He really listened to our song selections and played every song we wanted! He is a Master of Ceremonies and he incorporated some great touches into our special day! He is such a fun loving person and my family and I felt like he was party of our family! He turned our Wedding into a dance party. We got married 2 weeks ago and my family and friends are still talking about what an amazing time they had at our Wedding Reception! I would highly recommend his services to anyone wanting a fabulous wedding!

First and foremost, Matt is a really nice person! He is accommodating and followed up during my wedding planning more than any other vendor. We felt really confident booking him as our wedding DJ. Matt came to our rehearsal and was on time and professional. Matt also did our ceremony music which was beautiful. He really kept our reception going. He told a surprise love story about my husband and I which was such an amazing experience. Everyone at my wedding mentioned what a great DJ Matt was. He is more than a DJ, he is a true master of ceremonies.
Tam · Married on 06/27/2014
Matt Graumann was everything we could have ever dreamed/expected for our special wedding day! He was fantastic to work with, professional, great sense of humor, and again I would HIGHLY recommend him. Our reception was at Spanish Hills and he was super organized and ran our wedding reception without missing a beat. I will recommend him to all my friends and family if they get married in that area.

Matt is simply the best! I could not have asked for a smoother, more enjoyable wedding. Matt was the complete deal for our wedding acting as MC as well as doing our Ceremony, Cocktail and Reception Entertainment. Everyone loved him from an entertainment perspective as well as personal in his presentation, ease, friendliness, humor and sincere warmth. He is a really nice, humble guy who knows what to do and does it well. I planned my own wedding and was such a stress case. Matt reassured me that everything would be great, sending me calming and very kind emails. I felt I was not entirely on the ball in getting music selections to him in a timely manner. Matt had nothing but patience for me. When we met to discuss songs I was in a panic. He asked me a couple questions, threw out some songs and I quickly remembered how at ease he made me feel when I first met him. No panic! This is why we hired him! I loved all the songs we decided on. Matt filled in the gaps with his own wonderful choices based on the crowd. I mentioned a few questionable songs from the 90's in embarrassment, Vanilla Ice and MC Hammer as two favorites. Matt made sure to play these songs and quickly had the floor packed! It was awesome! My 90 year old Mother-In-Law was up dancing with all of us to both songs. That is a memory I will cherish forever! Well done!
I would recommend Matt if you want a classy, beautiful memory of your wedding. He is the real deal, complete package. No drama, no problems.
Matt is a true professional, incredibly responsive while providing unparalleled service. He is very easy going, some would say flexible. Our reception was split in different rooms and areas of the venue. Matt was not able to set up in just one spot but moved throughout with each change. Not one question or complaint. He took the situation and made it work. Amazing! I just can't say enough about Matt. He truly added to our wedding and I can't imagine anyone else doing a better job.

Matt was excellent! He was very responsive to all our emails and provided tips when needed. He always has a great selection of music. Our guests loved him. Out of all our vendors, he was the best. Thanks Matt!

Matt was the DJ/MC for two weddings I attended -- my friend's where I was a bridesmaid and my own. As a bridesmaid, I was impressed by his level of cool. I remembered how he strung together the events seamlessly. His style is classy and understated (never did he drawn too much attention to himself).
So, when it was time for my wedding, it was just a matter of my fiance meeting him. After our consultation, it was an easy decision. Throughout the planning process, he was responsive -- sometimes within minutes -- early in the morning and late at night. Matt met with us to go over the program of the day and exchanged numerous e-mails to revise the program. He even came to our venue site meeting so that he got a sense of the schematics of the place. Planning, at times, was overwhelming, but we now appreciate the amount of time Matt put into organizing the entertainment of our day.
Matt is truly a client-centered DJ. He did everything in his power to make our day wonderful. He got along with all our vendors and went beyond the call of duty (helping me carry in my dress and finding some fruit for one of guests' daughters). A number of our guests were impressed with his professional, positive demeanor and evident love of his job. They caught him be bopping along to the songs.
The DJ could be an afterthought or not a priority when planning a wedding, but the DJ is such a critical part of the day. With Matt, you can trust that all will go smoothly so that you can fully enjoy your wedding day.

Matt was awesome!! We needed a DJ who could incorporate both American and Armenian music into the playlist. We gave him a CD of Armenian music and he impressed us on how well he was able to smoothly transition from American music to Armenian music, especially since he had never really heard Armenian music before. He was very good at keeping the wedding on track. Loved how he interacted with the audience enough to keep them entertained but not overbearing. He had the perfect amount of charm and humor for a classy wedding DJ. Plus he's just a great guy we enjoyed working with him!
Arielle · Married on 03/24/2012
If your looking for a DJ for your wedding look no further!! I booked Matt almost a year before my wedding (3-24-12) and all through out the year he stayed in contact with me via e-mail. That made me feel so good. He's not just a guy that plays great music but he kept the wedding flowing from ceremony to the last dance. Which we were having so much fun dancing that we ended up adding an hour to the end of the night which Matt had no problem doing so. What is also great about Matt is that he really tries to get to know you as a couple and makes it very personable. With him I felt like I didn't have to worry about a thing. He truly mad our wedding rock!! I would recommend him to everyone!! I couldn't thank him enough!!!
Ariana · Married on 04/30/2011
At first we weren't really sure that we wanted a DJ at our wedding - I mean, we could get any music we wanted just using an i-pod right? THANK GOODNESS we decided not to go the ipod route and had Matt as our DJ! He was AMAZING!
Matt was extremely professional, while still being a fun guy to be around. He is very quick with his responses - always got back to me, certainly within a day and normally within an hour if not minutes!
We had two meetings with him - once when we were deciding whether to go with him, and then once to plan the ceremony. Both were very professional. I was constantly amazed by Matt's memory - he very rarely wrote things down, but remembered a ton about both myself and my husband.
One of our venues had a personnel change the week before our wedding. As soon as I told Matt that there was a new contact person, he was on the phone to her, just to make sure that everything was going to go smoothly. I was extremely impressed!
Once it got to the day of our wedding, Matt just made everything happen. We didn't have to worry about him setting up, which was a huge relief because we had more than enough to worry about! At the reception he was amazing, just managed the crowd and made the entire event go incredibly smoothly. He watched the crowd and managed the dance floor beautifully. I don't think we ever had a song with an empty dance floor and the dance floor was packed almost the entire night!
We just got to relax, get out on the dance floor and have fun!
I would absolutely recommend Matt as your DJ!!!!!

Matt Graumann was so much more than a DJ. He coordinated and played all the music for the ceremony and he acted as our MC for the reception. He had us write out our love story, (how we met, fell in love, and how I was proposed to) and combined the 2 sides and read it before our first dance. It was a great touch and he delivered it so well. He kept the music flowing so there was never a quite or awkward moment. He was FANTASTIC! He took our music lists and made such a great mixture of fast and slow songs and just helped keep the party going. I can't say enough great things about our experience with Matt. He always returned my e-mails within a day and we had an initial meeting and a planning meeting for all the music selections and he also came to the rehearsal to get a sense of the day. He came on time and made sure he had extra set up help for the qucik turn around between the ceremony and the reception which was about hour. We felt totally comfortable in his hands. Highly recommend!!!
Trish · Married on 08/14/2009
Matt was the most professional and accomodating of all of our vendors. He always drove TO us rather have us come to him. He constantly checked in with us up until the wedding date. He brainstormed with us to create a very unique, fun atmosphere. We had the grand entrance introducing the parents and wedding party one-by-one. We came up with hilarious personalized songs for each person as the were introduced that was a huge hit. He really seems passionate about wanting each wedding to go well and takes copius notes. We could not have been more impressed with him.
Joseph · Married on 08/08/2008
Matt was simply outstanding! Our guests enjoyed every single song he played. He did a great job emceeing our special day. He worked with us throughout the planning process, and always made sure he covered all angles of our wedding. We hope to use him again soon for other events. We highly recommend him!
Carla · Married on 09/18/2004
Matt was terrific. He was professional and kep the party going strong all night! He personally met with us a few times to really understand what we envisioned for our reception. He asked us for "must play" and "do not play" songs and honored our requests. Totallly worth it!
