Vicky and Mark Royle
read moreMatt was just amazing from start to finish, and we cant recommend him enough. From the very first phone call, we knew we wanted Matt to do the music on our wedding day. We clicked straight away and knew he would fit in with our family and friends.
No request was too big for him and Matt not only learnt a new song for my aisle walk, but also played an acoustic version of The Imperial March before the ceremony for my husband who is a massive Star Wars fan!
The acoustic set during the drinks reception was brilliant and created such a great atmosphere.
During the evening, we were very happy to leave the music choices with Matt and make decisions on the night. He was so flexible but also really listened to us when we spoke about the type of music we liked, so that me and Mark heard music we loved.
The dance floor was full all night and I couldnt have asked for a better atmosphere.
Matt, we honestly cant thank you enough, we think youre amazing!

read moreMyself and my husband cant thank Matt enough. He was incredible on our wedding day from start to finish, from an intimate acoustic during the ceremony right through to the evening DJ set. He created an amazing atmosphere and kept us all entertained all day. His relaxed and warm nature made us feel so at ease and we have had so many guests tell us how they found him so approachable and fun!! He created some fun special moments for us and our guests that we will remember forever. Nothing was too much to ask. If you are looking for someone very talented to fill your day with special moments, and give you a real good party too, this is your guy. Thanks so much Matt

read moreMatt played for our wedding in October, He was so patient with me leading up to the day, and spent hours learning tale as old as time so it was perfect for us! Nothing was too much trouble and he slotted into our day seamlessly, he helped us with everything we needed, trudging speakers and microphones around a field so we could make the day just how we wanted! Everyone said how amazing he was, he made the evening the best it could possibly be, he knew exactly how to keep everyone singing along! Amazing value for money for the time and effort he put into making our day. The memories of singing oasis around a campfire with him will live with us and our guests forever. It's hard to put into words how he made our wedding perfect, but it wouldn't have been the same day without him.

read moreMatt played and DJ'd at our wedding on August 12th at the Durham Ox (btw, best reception venue for informal/posh affair, fact! )and he was a major part of making our day very 'us'. Everyone has said it before, Matt is flexible, accommodating and friendly - you don't need extra hassle when organizing a wedding and Matt just handled the entertainment with no questions. We arrived to him playing acoustic tunes in the garden and he just went about his business, playing mood-appropriate stuff throughout the afternoon. He took requests and varied his style as the vibe changed and the day progressed. We had many kids at our do and they hung around Matt like groupies, fascinated by him and wanting to be him! Matt even played some godawful US YouTube kid's music for my 6 year old son which made him (my son) feel a million dollars. What's so great about Matt's set up is he can do casual, chilled acoustic, ramp up the noise and 'band' atmosphere with singing/backing tracks/amps and play literally anything DJ style as he works from a laptop and sound system - there is nothing you can't have played. We ended our night on 90s rave, Britpop, Seattle grunge and some gorgeous country. Matt, thanks, our day was perfect and it would have been a lesser day without you. Book this guy!

read moreMatthew is an absolute legend! We booked him for our wedding yesterday and he went above and beyond! So many guests commented on how fabulous he was and nothing was too much trouble.

From the second we enquired about booking him, he was so attentive and did everything we wanted and more. He was absolutely fabulous and I can not recommend him enough! Anyone looking for a wedding singer/DJ Matthew is your man!

Lisbeth Hordley
read moreMatt was absolutely fantastic at our wedding a few weeks ago. He was always in contact and helped us arrange the exact songs we wanted for our aisle walk and first dance. He went above and beyond when I said we would like to have a ceilidh dance and he found all the music for it and it was actually the highlight of the day for me!! All our guests loved his music, from getting personal requests all day, to dancing to the DJ music and having a good singalong in the evening around the firepit. Highly recommend! Thanks so much again Matt

read moreMatt we cannot thank you enough for helping to make our wedding extra special last month!! You were amazing from first point of contact and even more spectacular on the day!! Nothing was too much trouble in terms of our requests for songs for you to learn etc and in reality everything sounded beautiful!! You are such a trooper, powering through from the start to the end of our day, we cannot commend or recommend you enough to our family and friends!! I really hope to have the pleasure of hearing and seeing you at more upcoming weddings and events!! For anyone out there considering booking a accoustic guitarist/DJ look no further, you won't find anyone better than Matt in terms of the quality of his voice and playing, as well as great value for your money!!

read moreMatt played our wedding at the end of November and was amazing! We only gave him 24 hours notice when we asked him to play and he immediately made a very stressful "day before the wedding" much calmer!
Matt couldn't have been any more accommodating, making sure the whole evening was tailored to us. He even made us a fab highlights video which is just great to look back on.
We would thoroughly recommend!!

read moreWell a couple of weeks ago Matt turned up at my wedding and got on with the job in hand, I had every confidence in his ability singing and the additional stuff that comes with the wedding package was just the icing on the cake. Smoke, bubbles, longer sets without being asked, mobile when needed - in the woods, in the barn, up on the lawn, he just worked around every situation without any instruction and he was awesome.
I would have no reservations in recommending him for any wedding (inside or out) just hired him and sat back and relaxed... he is worth every penny and more. Thanks Matt

Richard Hurren
read moreMatt - first of all, a huge huge thank you for making our wedding day even more special. You were so easy to work with from day one and nothing was too much trouble. Not to mention an absolute trooper for the long day. You're an incredible guitarist and singer which really complimented the setting. Your DJ set on the evening was also fantastic and had a lot of people on the dance floor. To top it all off, you're a really nice guy too!
Would highly highly recommend anyone to book, as Matt was the perfect accompaniment to a perfect day!

Thanks again, hope to work with you again!

read moreThank you Matt, you were amazing and having you sing at our wedding made the day even more magical.

Matt was so easy to deal with and responded immediately to any of my questions. He offered guidance and support on our song choices and totally took control of the day so that we didnt have to worry and could just sit back and enjoy our special day.

read moreWe booked Matthew to play guitar and sing during our reception drinks and then to DJ in the evening. We received many compliments about his singing and friendly manner as well as his stage presence. Matthew was very accommodating to everything we wanted and our guests requests. He was great value for money and we would recommend him to anyone looking for wedding/event entertainment. When Matthew met with me at the venue prior to the wedding he was very enthusiastic and excited to play at our quirky venue. Thanks again Matthew

read moreHi Matt, myself and Will would like to say a massive thank you for the amazing job you did on Saturday at our wedding. We had a blast and everyone commented on the music and how brilliant you were. We all thought you did a fabulous job, the live singing was absolutely fantastic!! Thank you we will never forget it

John Ingram
read moreMe & Jen discovered Matt on a night out for food at The Royal, where he got up & played & sang a few numbers unplanned. He had the whole room singing along, & we both admired his talents! So when it came to arranging entertainment for our hometown wedding party, 26/11/16, we thought he would be perfect. At the start of the night whilst everyone was getting in the mood, Matt played & sang, & took requests, & set a lovely atmosphere.. & then once the mood was set he got the party started with his disco set! Everyone a had a cracking night.. We would not hesitate to recommend him for weddings or any other functions.. Thanks again Matt.. top man
