Matt was so great to work with leading up to our party! He was responsive and willing to take requests for artists within his vocal range. He arrived to our house with plenty of time to set up all of his equipment and be ready to play when our guests were arriving! Provided a fantastic atmosphere in our home for my husband's 40th birthday party! Thanks, Matt!!

Thanks so much for the review! The party was a lot of fun, glad I could be a part of it.
Matt played a good show for our backyard birthday party. Everyone enjoyed his music and he was very professional and polite.
Response from Matt K:
Thanks so much. I really appreciate it!
Our daughter’s Wild One birthday party was a big hit because Matt provided the soundtrack for fun. Setting up, we noticed he had all the equipment to perform a great set list: Hootie and the Blowfish, Queen, Tom Petty, Guns and Roses. We just provided the audience and electrical outlet. His performance was adjusted to our small venue— but could have easily entertained a large crowd. Matt is really good at reading the room. He was friendly, service oriented, and personable to our guests from the GenX aunties, to the Millennial Neighbors, to our little toddler guests. He put on a great show, is a great value to the music community— and as a former high school teacher, I really appreciated his high aspirations and life goals. This young man is going places— book him now while you can afford his talents!
Matt helped me surprise my wife with a serenade for her birthday. He’s a great singer who sang outside perfectly in 33 degree weather! He was polite, responsive, and professional during the booking process. He truly made this occasion special. We will definitely go to Matt again in the future!
