Singing the Big Band Standards and more like you've never heard before! Winner of many awards through Gigmasters including "Top Tribute Singer" for 2010 and 2011. Also "Top Italian Singer" for 2011, and finally "Top Gigmasters Big Band Singer Award for 2008, 2009, 2010, and 2011!" Matt Walch is an outstanding singer from Michigan, performing throughout the country. His music consists of songs recorded by Sinatra, Tony Bennett, Nat King Cole, Dean Martin, Johnny Mathis, Elvis, Bobby Darin, Michael Buble and other greats, sounding so close to the original, audiences often wonder if he's actually singing! He has performed live with The Tommy Dorsey Orchestra and opened for the Glenn Miller Orchestra. For over ten years, Matt has been performing for Festivals, Company parties, Anniversaries, Weddings, Receptions, Birthdays, Holiday shows, and for dinner entertainment at fine restaurants. For a reception, Matt is "a perfect blend for cocktail and dinner hour".
NOT ONCE HAS AN AUDIENCE OR CLIENT BEEN DISAPPOINTED IN MATT'S PERFORMANCE!
Matt performs with professionally recorded accompaniments that sound very close to the original! Listen to the song clips! This has allowed Matt to provide a high caliber of entertainment at a more reasonable price than using a live band. Everything about Matt's performance is always professional, including equipment, proper attire, and attitude.
Here are a few comments about Matt's previous performances.
"Summertime on Martha's Vineyard can seem like a never ending cocktail party. I wanted to do something different for my client's Premier Party and Matt Walch raised the bar for us. His sophisticated sound and professional performance made the party exceptional. The songs of Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennett and other legends were beautifully interpreted by Matt and our guests thoroughly enjoyed him."
Barbara Welsh – President, Dollars and Sense - Martha's Vineyard - June 2009
Matt Walch is a top notch vocalist. Matt has been out here several times and everyone's been very pleased with each performance. We had Matt open for the Glenn Miller Orchestra last year and the manager asked Matt to send them a demo tape for their producer to listen to. I wouldn't hesitate to ask Matt back again, because he's such a crowd pleaser. In fact, I hope to have him back this year for another set of Christmas shows.
Matt is an amazing performer. He is an absolute crowd favorite -
close your eyes and you will swear Frank and Dean have entered the hall. His outstanding voice and command of the stage will astound you. He has been known to distribute flowers to some of the ladies in his audiences. ALL will leave his show with a smile on their face, a song in their heart and an appreciation of the talent of this first-class entertainer.
Matt, You really made our wedding reception a special event. We were so fortunate to find you. ***Matt was a fabulous entertainer! Many of our guests were astonished by his ability to sound just like the original performers. He arrived early for our event, was very responsive and accommodating to our requests, extremely professional and a fun entertainer for our special night. We wanted class and elegance...Matt really delivered! I highly recommend Matt for any special event!

Birthday Party (Adults) in Atlanta, GA on 01/14/2012
"This occasion will be forever more, the most memorable 5 hours of my 50 years! I have planned, entertained, and hosted countless countless parties and functions. This one needed to be perfect. Because of Matt's divine voice, awesome attitude, phenomenal stage presence, and crowd pleasing spirit, it is now recorded as the greatest party on earth. An intimate dinner party, barely enough room to sit down- but my friends felt the need to move! I would have never guessed that 12 couples could not only slow dance, but also literally kick up their heels in a space the size of a shoebox. My guests were SO impressed with Matt, I only wish I could bring him for every party!"

Private Party in Coldwater, MI on 07/14/2012
"He was amazing! Not only did he MAKE the party, but I asked if he could sing Andrea Bochelli "A Time to Say Goodbye " (my husbands favorite song), he went back to his voice coach and learned the song and sang it magnificently. It was quite a night!

Birthday Party (Adults) in Lakewood, OH on 03/10/2012
"Matt helped turn a very special occasion into a truly memorable occasion. Matt is so very talented and a true gentleman. His music was exactly what I expected and more. He was kind enough to prepare a song that we requested outside songs he knew and it was just perfect. I can’t say enough about what a great job he did. I don’t throw a party like that every day, but I wouldn’t hesitate to have him back.

Wedding in Jackson, MI on 02/25/2007
"We were just thrilled with Matt. He arrived plenty early, and was set up with enough time left over for us to ask him a few last minute questions. Matt not only sang all the songs we requested, but also added some that were just beautiful. Everyone commented on what an amazing voice he has, and how much they enjoyed his friendly style of entertainment. Our guests were thrilled that he was more than willing to sing a few of their requests.
Many of our family and friends who were gathered for our special night asked Matt for contact information. We're all looking forward to hearing him perform again, and would recommend him in a heartbeat. "

He's a cutie - looks great in his tux!"
