Honored to have Minnesota's #1 CLIENT SATISFACTION RATING since 1996! First Choice provides professional DJ and emcee services for WEDDINGS, COMPANY EVENTS, PRIVATE PARTIES, and OTHER OCCASIONS. Matt has performed at over 600 wedding receptions, and his list of corporate clients includes 3M, Target Corporation, Macy's, Wells Fargo, and the Minnesota Wild. "I am very proud of the 100% client satisfaction rating that my company has been able to maintain, and of the number of referrals directed to us by our former clients. In this business, I think that speaks volumes."

Matt and other First Choice DJs have been described as:

Here's the snapshot version of what we're about:

SERVICE: We believe that quality service begins with communication. We encourage your input, offer our expertise along the way, and work together on details as we approach your event.

PERFORMANCE: Over 90% of our clients come to us by referral. Word of mouth has always been our strongest form of advertising, and we are honored to have a reputation for excellent performance.

GUARANTEE: We want to be held to the highest standards, and want our clients to know that they can be confident with our DJ service. With this in mind, we back all of our events with a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee.

Just in case you'd like a little personal history... I stumbled into the DJ profession during my senior year at the University of St. Thomas, in St. Paul. After graduation, I worked for a great DJ company for a few years, and then decided to start my own in 1996. Since then, we have been able to remain a small company - running a maximum of three DJ units, and concentrating on quality over quantity - and I have been able to make a living as the owner of this small company. It has been a great ride! Two of my former DJs have started their own companies, and another now lives in Haiti, where he and his wife have been helping the Haitian community since 2006. I'm proud of all of them!

Matt was great to work with - he was extremely professional, cordial and flexible. He sought input on what we were looking for throughout our event and he provided exactly what we wanted! His attention to detail was so appreciated and his professionalism during our planning left me with the confidence to know that the DJ was one thing I didn't have to worry about - he had everything under control!

I cannot believe how amazing of a night I had! Not just because it was my wedding night, but because Matt knew what he was doing all night with music, and everything else! I cannot stress how fantastic he was. He was very involved and kept the crowd going! There wasn't a time where there was no one on the dancefloor, and that's hard to do! I wish there was more stars on here to rate because I would give all of them. Very professional, involved, and accommodating. It was very nice to get to know a complete stranger months before the event. Funny and full of fun! Thank you for helping us make our big day even better!
