Great DJ and person!

I believe there are two things that determine a great party. Music that will suit your audience and the person who runs the party. Someone charismatic, enthusiastic with a great attitude and passion to music and people. Matt is definitely that kind of person. People almost never leave the dance floor when he hides behind tones of his great equipment that would be enough to play at a concert 😁 A good party It’s not that common anymore or maybe I haven’t experiance it for a while. So if you look for someone who will listen to what you need, someone funny, who will lead the crowd and also play some live music as I forgot to mention he does play on saxophone 🎷 that’s the person you need at your party 🎊

Fabulous weeding reception on 16th September!

Fantastic service provided by Matt! Contact and approach was very thorough and professional from the beginning.
Matt arrived to the venue at perfect time, set up took about the one hour and all the area looked amazing. Matt provided excellent service not only as a DJ but also played saxophone to our first dance and lots more tunes. It was a special experience for both-my husband and I, and definitely best ever evening we have had. It could not go any better.

We had Matt play at our wedding reception and he was brilliant!
Got down on the dance floor with his Sax & everyone loved it.
He played some really funky tunes with a modern twist. It made the wedding reception tbh.

The best wedding party!

Matt was the saxophonist for our wedding in June 2023. We were particularly keen to find a musician who could engage our guests on the dance floor. We also wanted someone who offered great value for money, had lots of positive reviews, and a five-star rating. Matt checked all those boxes and more; he was extremely professional, kind, and warm. Both ourselves and our guests had a lot of fun with him on the big day. Matt is an absolutely incredible saxophonist, and the sound he produces is just unbelievable! We absolutely loved our wedding reception party, and our guests did too. I just want to express a huge thank you to Matt for his hard work and kindness.

The best choice

Matt was a DJ on our wedding in May. He also played ours first dance on saxophone, which was breathtaking. He listened us since the beginning, so we knew he will play music in our style.
I definitely recommend him for your wedding, he is polite, elegant and very smart guy.
Great job Matt.

Incredible evening!

Mat is, quite frankly, awesome. He was so enthusiastic about our wedding and would answer all our questions quickly. He really helped calm some pre-wedding nerves as we knew our evening was in a very safe pair of hands. A true highlight was when Mat began playing his version of Freed from Desire - my friend's face of pure shock and elation said it all!
A brilliant sax player, an excellent DJ and all round just a really cool, friendly guy.
