Matt Chase is exactly what you are looking for. Incredible talent, a consummate professional, wonderful to work with. He performs the perfect songs at the perfect volume, reads the room, played all the songs I requested (with mastery), and most important SOUNDS AMAZING. From the ceremony to cocktail hour, to the reception; his music was flawless. The guests loved him, I loved him, my wife loved him, even the wedding coordinator and photographer loved him. He's also just a really nice guy. I back him 100 percent. If you are looking for an exceptionally talented acoustic guitar player to perform at your event this is THE guy. Thank you so much Matt, you were a highlight of our wedding.
We got married last June on the beach and were looking everywhere for someone to play music at the ceremony, but couldn't seem to find the right fit. Then we found Matt Chase-- he was PERFECT! Matt played acoustic guitar and sang while guests were being seated. He played the most beautiful rendition of Van Morrison's 'Crazy Love' when I walked down the aisle, and it made the moment even more memorable. He was very professional, knew exactly what to play, and his music set the tone and the atmosphere for the ceremony absolutely perfectly. I can't say enough about Matt Chase! He's the best!
