Matt came to Rebel Race full of energy with his PA system, as our emcee at the starting line for each race wave. He went above and beyond what he was supposed to do. He even played music at the start line for the race to give everyone an awesome experience.
We enjoyed having Matt perform at our recent 50plus Expo. Our visitors greatly enjoyed his singing and stage 'shenanigans'. We look forward to having him join us in the future.

I can't say enough wonderful things about your contribution to our luncheon last month. You have a gift in the way you engage an audience. You embrace everyone in the room immediately with a sincere warmth and a love for the music. You can't help but sing along. You are blessed with great talent and an outstanding voice, but it is the fact that you are having so much fun in preforming the music that we all love that we found ourselves wanting more. We didn't want your songs to end! I would recommend you for any party, wedding, or gathering to entertain guests. Your charm overflows into the room. We would love to have you back any time! Thank you again for a perfect day!
Matt, thanks so much for helping to make our event memorable for our guests! You did an excellent job interacting with the guests and everyone enjoyed the act. It was a pleasure to work with you! Thanks again!

Matt Macis is a fantastic performer who truly is the whole package. He has a great voice, fantastic dance moves and knows how to work an audience. His performance for Silversox Club, the senior group at the Bowie Baysox was absolutely outstanding! He is very professional and everyone in attendance loved his performance. I would highly recommend booking Matt for your next event!
Matt, I just wanted to send a ‘thank you’ for performing at our Colony Village Apartments Grand Opening event! It was a great success. You & Mike were a huge hit! You were a perfect fit for this event!
Aside from your wonderful performance, you were very easy to correspond with and I could not have asked for a better result. Your music brought the most to the party and was the least stressful to set up.
A lot of people who attended inquired about your services so hopefully you will have more work in Richmond! As an unforeseeable result it has motivated my staff for more of these events. I will certainly reach out to you in the future!

You were wonderful on Friday night. THANK YOU. People loved your talents and wonderful personality. I hope we'll see you again next year.
You're amazingly talented.
I was one of the guests at Kyle and Patience's wedding this past Friday. I told you, Matt, and the band there how much I enjoyed your entertainment, but I feel I must say it again. YOU ARE AWESOME!!! I have never attended any event that had such enjoyable live entertainment. Not only is your music wonderful ( and full of variety and ranges), but your personality engages the guests in such a way, that we ALL felt TRULY INCLUDED in the celebration.
You are funny & VERY quick-witted, but ALWAYS with great style. You are an all over talented, CLASSY performer with awesome sound ( band included, of course) and I would hire you in a heartbeat (when I marry off my boys, maybe?), and recommend you to anyone.
Thanks for making the night extra special for myself and all who attended.
God Bless and PLAY ON!!
We had a the pleasure of having Matt perform for our event at Bally's in Atlantic City in December 2012. We wanted something that captured the style of 'vintage' A.C., without having it be cheesy like a Frank Sinatra imitator or impersonator. At first, I will admit, there were skeptics that a young man in his early 20's would be able to emulate the sounds and feelings of the bygone era... boy, were we wrong. The singing, the dancing, the comedy... all engaging. Keep going, Matt. Sinatra was succeeded by Buble, and now you're up next.
Matt Macis is a very talented guy. He was our emcee at a recent awards banquet and did a great job. His energy is contagious as he engages his audience, shares the spotlight with other speakers and performers and he is extremely professional. I loved his creative ideas in setting up “surprises” for our audience and the dance line to close our ceremony was so much fun. Matt can sing, dance and he’s funny to boot.
Matt put on a great show for our Long Term Care residents at our facility! He was engaging, enthusiastic, humorous and genuinely cared about making everyone feel happy. Thumbs up for an awesome performance. We'll definitely be bringing him back this year!
Matt, I wanted to thank you for putting on a great performance... Thanks again.
Matt hosted and performed in our Broadway fundraiser and was a hit! He told jokes that had our crowd howling in between the songs, and even performed a few himself. More importantly, he was able to really speak about the importance of our cause. Thank you Matt for making the show and the event a huge success.
Matt Macis exhilarated a crowd at Watergate at Landmark with his "Sings the Legends Live" show. A standing ovation from the entire crowd capsulated a wonderful and entertaining show! As a result, we booked Matt again!
Thanks for "great show". Getting numerous calls about this "smash" show! ... Even the workers at Pompeii are raving over the show! We applaud you for the gift of laughter, the skill, talent and vision of this smash show!
We've booked Matt twice, and each time he has delivered a top-quality performance. He sings, dances and most definitely makes us laugh. He is a big presence in the Little Italy community and we are glad to have such an upstanding young man at our events.

Matt Macis began his career at age 16 in the Off-Broadway hit "The Awesome 80s Prom", directed by the show's creator and writer Ken Davenport. Hailed "a genuine find" with "an impressive dramatic and vocal range" by The Washington Post, this 25 year old performer has headlined casinos, performed at festivals, theaters, cabarets, night clubs, and private galas around the U.S. and Canada in areas like New York City, Atlantic City, the Poconos, and Catskills, has toured in Broadway companies, and performed alongside or opened for nationally acclaimed entertainers like Deana Martin (daughter of Dean Martin), Robert Goulet, Shirley Jones and more. He has circled the globe in his signature "Tribute to Michael Jackson" several times over, with one of his proudest moments onstage being when, in 2010, he fronted the band from the would-be concert and record-breaking film Michael Jackson's THIS IS IT. He recently completed a year-long run with Sight & Sound Theatres, performing 11 shows a week for 2,000 audience members at each performance. While passion is singing the timeless classics of the Great American Songbook, his repertoire spans the pop standards of the past century. Matt Macis delivers delightful music, hilarious comedy, memorable song-and-dance routines, and more -- making him an ideal choice for entertaining the most diverse of audiences.
Matt's show formats are vast and varied, as he performs solo with pre-recorded tracks... or with a piano accompanist... or with a jazz combo or a large band.
He also has several 'themed' shows like:
MATT MACIS & HANNAH TIMM - LIVE! IN CONCERT... Matt Macis & Hannah Timm - Live! In Concert is 'retro' at it's finest - a song, dance and comedy revue that is truly one-of-a-kind for the 21st Century. True to the classic television and live performing duos of yesteryear, Matt and Hannah are their generation's Sonny and Cher – offering an evening of music and laughter perfect for any and every audience.
OH! MY EDDIE!... The Story and Songs of Eddie Fisher are featured in this long-overdue musical tribute to one of the most popular singers from the 1950s. The program features Macis telling Eddie's story as it has never been done before - using Mr. Fisher's own words through his two autobiographies, and the words gathered through Mr. Macis' personal and exclusive interviews with Eddie's professional colleagues, trusted friends and life-long fans who came to know their idol in a most-personal way. Featuring many of the hit songs that made Mr. Fisher the pop phenomenon of his day, like "Oh! My! Papa!", "Anytime", "Wish You Were Here" and more.
THAT'S AMORE!... The Great Italian-American Songbook is highlighted along with the singers who defined the genre. Macis, whose family is rich with history in Baltimore's own Little Italy, delivers a “grande bacio” (“big kiss”, in Italian) to those who came before him by paying homage to the likes of Frank Sinatra, Bobby Darin, Dean Martin, Al Martino, Perry Como, Louis Prima, Frankie Valli, and more. Like his paisanos of yesteryear, Matt offers an evening where he will sing, dance, joke, and will (most definitely) talk with hands -- because THAT'S amore!
