We hired Matt to play for our wedding ceremony on June 1, 2013. The entire experience of working with Matt was fantastic. Beforehand, he was responsive to my emails and requests, and proactive about getting in touch with me if he had questions. During the ceremony, Matt sounded perfect. He was so friendly and spoke with a lot of the guests. I also received so many compliments after the event, telling me how great Matt sounded. (Especially nice touch -- the event was outside, and it was a little overcast. As soon as the sun popped out, Matt started playing George Harrison's "Here Comes The Sun.") Thanks Matt, for adding the perfect ambiance to our special day.

Matt performed at our annual fundraiser. He was accommodating to our needs and was overall a wonderful performer. Don’t think about hiring someone else, you’ll be extremely satisfied with his level of professionalism, friendliness, and most importantly his talent!
