    Matt DJed my wedding May 5, 2103. He did a fantastic job and everybody! The quality of his services were top-notch and he went over and above by cleaning up afterwards, which was not part of his duties. He kept the crowd entertained and distracted when the bridal party had some delays. He truly made our special day that much better and we are so thrilled with the outcome!

    Matt was awesome. You can depend on him to make sure all your music needs are taken care inside and outside with no worries. He does his everything to accommodate the crowd and even joins in to keep them motivated. Thanks Matt for adding to a perfect day for Sara & Eric..... Sue (mother of the bride)

    Matt was wonderful! We had a small wedding with about 30 guests consisting of family and close friends. I was worried how interactive the guests would be since it was a small group. Matt worked with me prior to the reception to ensure that we both were on the same page. He was easy to work with and when we had some last minute small changes to the schedule he was flexible and easy going. He was even out on the dance floor showing us how to do different dances which kept every dancing the entire time. Even family members that never dance were out on the dance floor. The only thing I would have changed was to have booked my reception for more than the 4 hours, we were all surprised when the night was over since we were having so much fun! Thanks Matt for making our wedding so memorable and braving a tropical storm to get there!

    Matt Garner was professional, polite, and flexible. Flashy DJ's running the show are downright obnoxious. Matt knew it was really important to us to have the music speak for itself. Matt was discreet and very sensitive to what we asked for, attentive to whether or not we had a chance to eat, and so forth. My only music regret is not spending more time making lists of our favorite songs, but that's my own fault.

    Hiring Matt was one of my best decisions! His fees were also a downright steal compared to other local competitors.

    Absolutely without a doubt best DJ ever. He is quick to respond to email and phone calls and has great affordable prices. We had our wedding and reception in Destin, Fl. The ceremony was offsite from the reception and he was able to take portable equipment down to the beach to play music. He goes above and beyond from the moment he gets there and sets up. He helped my wedding planner and even cut our cake!! annndd passed it out!!! If he sees there is something that needs to be done he doesnt hesitate or mind helping. He got out and danced and showed everyone the different dances prior to the song coming on. ex. the cupid shuffle, superman, and the wobble. We absolutely reccomend Matt for ANY of your DJ needs!! Thanks Matt! -Cleo and John

    To say he is a "DJ" is an understatement of the services Matt provides. He blew my husband and I away. We knew he would be great from the day we met him for dinner to discuss our wedding, however we never realized we were hiring a person who would end up acting as a day-of-coordinator! He made sure we were all lined up correctly and gave us cues, always had people going in the right direction, announced important things to our guests that I never even thought of having him do (but am SO thankful he did!), and his scavenger hunt had the kids engaged and having a great time. We couldn't give Matt enough thanks for everything he did for us, and will continue to recommend him for as long as we know people getting married!

    Thank You Thank You Thank You Thank You Thank You Thank You Thank You Thank YOU…. We had a great time. You are truly worth every penny we spent and then some. My coworkers, friends, and family are still reliving the night every time we talk. You proved to be more than just a DJ from getting us water while we were taking our photos to making sure everything flowed smoothly to suggesting a location so that our big day was not ruined. We sincerely appreciate all of it. If I could give a higher ranking for Matt I would, Tropical Storm Lee forced us to change our plans for our wedding and DJ Matt made sure our wedding was memorable. DJ Matt we are truly thankful for everything.

    Matt was the best part of my wedding. Everyone is STILL talking about how awesome of a job he did. He was not just my DJ but my friend. He talked to me about everything and always put my mind at ease when I started to stress out. We wanted a fun reception (chicken dance, karaoke, the whole 9 yards) and he made it SO fun!! He will adapt to anyone's style. He is the best DJ in the world. He is also an EMT and can officiate so if anything goes wrong, he's got it covered!! :) Absolutely love him!!!

    Matt was the best to work with. It did not take a lot of back and forth for him to get the details we wanted for our reception and he made the evening flow very very smoothly! Matt was on the money on every single detail and kept me on track with our schedule of events for the evening. He was very flexible throughout the evening, mixing it up with great music continuously, and was very monumental to making our party what it was. Thank you so much Matt. Worth every dollar spent and then some. Thanks for the military discount Matt. I highly recommend him to DJ your next event. Doesn't much classier and the service he provides doesn't get much better!

    Matt Garner is a fantastic DJ. His repertoire of music is unbelievable. He knows how to get the crowd moving. Matt gets out on the dance floor and leads the crowd in dancing many different dances. He is attuned to what is happening at all times, and announces toasts, tossing of bouquet, garter at appropriate times. I highly recommend Music by Matt. He also gives military discounts.

    Matt really took the time to make sure I had everything I needed for my wedding. He sent me a list of the essentials and made sure in advance to have all the music I wanted. The day of my wedding he not only was our DJ, but also like a jack of all trades. He made sure I had food and drinks, and also bought food and drinks to our 80 year old grandparents so they would not have to stand in the buffet line. He is very economical and gives a great discount to former military.

    Matt was the DJ for my wedding reception. His planning worksheet was thorough and he made sure we discussed everything so he knew the timeline/lineup of events for the reception. He was always in communication with my wedding planner so that they were both on the same page throughout the reception. The songs played during the "guest dancing" at the end were all fun and great, but unfortunately he did not really play any of the guest song requests during the "dinner" time. The version of the 1st Dance song was not the version that I had requested and the introduction of the bridal party was a bit bumpy (we had each pair walk in to a different song). Overall Matt did a good job.

    Matt is a very personable and a friendly man. He's not very talkative on the mic but he and his assistant helped to keep our party going. He will do whatever you ask of him and can find the music that you request- like the Muppets Theme! My new husband has DJ experience himself, so Matt was kinda under the microscope. Matt was great about with getting back to either of us with a response to questions by email or telephone. Best wishes to the future Matt!

    I will start by saying that Matt was not my Dj, however we payed the $800 for his services. After we payed he let us know that one of his employees would be our Dj. At first I thought it was no big deal, they would send a professional. WRONG! I had turned in the planning sheet before the dead line talked to the person who was going to be our Dj and thought everything was sorted. This person even came to me while I was getting ready to go over the music, and still got it wrong!! If your planning a wedding you know how much you want everything to go as planned, especially when you go over it AGAIN five minutes before hand. The Dj played the wrong song (something in Spanish....really!!!) for the processional, it was just supposed to be piano music. The thing is, it's not like this wasn't an instrumental version of a song the artist was a pianist, there are NO WORDS so how I ended up with that...? Add that to the unpreparedness, the never ending technical issues and the pure awkwardness of our Dj... I asked for a slow song so I could have a dance with my boss and a techno song was played, albeit it wasn't a super fast techno song, but still weird. And instead of getting with the reception coordinator like the dj was asked to, this person bothered me every 20 minutes with a question. There are many other issues, but I'm sure your tired of reading. My overall review of this company isn't good. I was very disappointed with the service and will not be using again, nor do I recommend them.

    I am aware of this user's event, and what went on during the evening. This DJ is no longer employed with my company.
