It's was an awesome performance! Great timing! I have nothing much to say but thank you!
Thank you guys so much for making my husband's 40th Birthday party a blast.
Matt was the highlight of the party. Our guests were thrilled with his performance, it was all they talked about the next day. His moves are amazing!
Thank you Matt for making the celebration of our General Manager’s 25th Anniversary so memorable! She is a big Michael Jackson fan and we knew having an Impersonator would be the best gift for her! You were amazing and gave a great performance! It is something that, not only Sandy, but the rest of us, will remember for years to come. Thank you for making her anniversary extra special!
Matt held up his end of the bargain. The crowd was on their feet clapping and dancing. Screaming and wooing! The performance was exactly what was expected. Matt ended the performance with some of us joining him and we opened the dance floor full of people dancing to the wobble. Awesome and Fantastic! Then it wasn't over. We took pictures with Matt! Thoroughly Satisfied!!!! Thank you Matt~
Matt performed for our group here in Charleston. Couldn't have asked for more. The look, the sound, the moves and most importantly the energy. After his show, he had everyone on the dance floor. We had such a blast having Matt as Michael. Gigsalad is a great service, as well. Best of luck to you all in the future.
We had Matt out for our wedding reception, and.... boy... did he deliver! He came out in classic MJ costume from the red jacket to the black sparkling jacket with the rhinestone-encrusted glove. He then danced with my (now-)wife to The Way You Make Me Feel, just like in the music video. Jackson 5 routine with my groomsmen was HYSTERICAL. Took pictures, danced, and was just great to do business with in general. Do yourself a favor and hire him.
Matt performed at my nephew"s graduation party. He did an outstanding job! His MJ costumes rocked! Everyone enjoyed the performance. I wish I could post pictures to this page!!
Matt peformed as MJ for our company picnic and really interacted with the crowd. His performance really got our employees up and dancing.
I attended a 5th grade graduation party where Matt appeared. He was great with the kids and I enjoyed the show. I thought he got the crowd involved and I was impressed overall.
Had Matt out here at our club as Michael Jackson... an hour into the show, someone looked his website up on their phone and wanted him to do Buble....20 minutes later, he is no longer Jackson... he comes out in a suit and does the rest of his show with Rat Pack and Buble material. Funny as h*ll! Can't wait to have him out again. Simply, WOW.
Matt was wonderful! He had the whole place up dancing and singing. Can't wait to have him back again. Wonderful job.
MATT WAS A TRUE JOY, THE ENTIRE BUILDING IS STILL BUZZING ABOUT HIM. EXCELLENT PERFORMER!!!
Matt Macis is the consumate professional: courteous, prompt, respectful--and passionate about giving his best in tribute to Michael Jackson. Our guests were enthralled at what they experienced with Mr. Macis' performance. Bravo, Matt!
If you are looking for MJ performers, Matt should be your first choice. He is very true to the act, gets into character and performs outstanding. My event was a huge success because of Matt.
Matt's show "The Natural Born Thriller Show" came in and WOW'd the crowd for our event... We saw him back in 2009 at Mount Airy Casino and through a couple of Google searches found the MJ we wanted for our crowd. When they performed 'Thriller' it was perfect for the feel of Halloween coming up... the dance was exactly like in the video... he even transformed into the wolf from the video. The dancers and singers in his show were top-notch and worth the price. It was like the real thing. Their high energy had the crowd going during the whole night, and Matt even took pictures with everyone afterwards. What a trooper. Thanks Matt and crew... we wish you continued success.
He was on time, gave an awesome show, I would have him again. LOVED THE Performance.
Hi Matt....I just wanted to thank you again for coming out to perform... You were amazing!!! The crowd was excited and everyone had a great time!!! It was so much fun!! You were very interactive with the crowd, open minded and just an all around great person to work with. Thank You, Thank You, Thank You.

Thank you, Thank you, Thank you, AWESOME!!!
I can't tell you in words how great Matt is to work with. Just the best experience I've ever had. SHHH Don't tell him but he needs to bump up his rate...
HAHA Loved having you Matt and good luck in all you do.
We booked Matt for a performance at the last minute yesterday (6/26/11) for our event to commemorate the two-year anniversary of the passing of Mr. Michael Jackson. Matt performed the hits like BILLIE JEAN, completely identical to MJ's performance. He even got my girlfriend up during THE WAY YOU MAKE ME FEEL just like in the video! Most touching was his renditions of EARTH SONG and HEAL THE WORLD, where all of the children at the festival came onstage to join him holding hands, singing, hugging. It was a beautiful moment. His duet with Michael Jackson's voice on THIS IS IT was very special as well. We cannot thank Matt enough for coming out at the last minute to our celebration. We hope everyone gets the chance to see him sing and dance his tribute, just as we did yesterday! THANK YOU MATT!
I can't thank you enough for yourperformance last night at our Sweet 16 party. Everyone was surprised and absolutely loved it. She told me all of her friends are telling her it was the best party they have ever been to and you helped to make such a great night.
I will defnitely keep you in mind for future events and I would not hesitate to recommend you to my friends and family.
The feedback we got from the team was awesome. The office is still talking about it. You really came through for us. We appreciate your flexibility and professionalism.
[This email is] to tell how much of a wonderful job you did & to thank you for adding the wow affect to Jeff's party.
Thank you, thank you, thank you!
Matt did an amazing job as Michael Jackson at my daughter's wedding reception. This was a surprise for not only the bride and groom but the guests as well. And what a surprise it was! Everyone loved him including my daughter and her new husband! His performance was fun and interactive.Matt was a pleasure to work with and I would highly recommend him for any event.
Saw this guy perform at my friend's wedding reception, and was amazed. What an awesome idea to have MJ crash the party, dance with everybody and then take pictures in the photobooth. We actually booked him for OUR wedding in Philadelphia in 2011. Can't wait! Thanks Matt!
Matt Macis's performance was an incredible rendition of Michael Jackson's most wonderful songs. His professionalism and realism in his performance was beyond anything I could ever describe in words as well as being more than I could have wanted. Everyone at our event was so impressed and it was the talk of the town for weeks afterwards. After posting the pics from our event it looked so real that there were people who actually questioned them. His back up dancers were great and the show overall was the biggest success we ever had. People who missed it were asking if we were going to do it again. I can't thank Matt and his dancers enough for making our Tribute to Michael Jackson a sincerely incredible experience that we will not soon forget.
What a wonderful day! My developmentally disabled brother loves MJ and his music. Since this was a b-day surprise for him, he was shocked at first, but then really enjoyed the event and dancing, as well as all those who attended. Thank you so much for a great memory.
Booking Matt as Michael Jackson was the best decision I could have made when I came up with the idea of surprising my son with an MJ impersonator for his 7th birthday! My son was ecstatic and Matt did such an amazing job, i couldn't have found a better person for it.
Booked Matt for a private party at our home on 8-29-10, celebrating Michael Jackson's birthday with our closest friends and family. We all LOVE MJ!
Even though he was already booked later that evening in Jersey, he worked with me so that we could still take advantage his services and make our party THAT MUCH BETTER! I'll tell you, we met him before he 'transformed' into Michael and it is an AMAZING thing to watch. His dance moves and costume really made you think you were with Michael again. RIP MJ WE LOVE YOU AND WE LOVE MATT FOR COMING TO OUR PARTY!
communication was easy and well executed. His performance was a blast. I loved his back up dancers also. His prices were very affordable and well worth the performance. He was a true professional who knew exactly what to do. I could not have asked for a better performer. He was truly great to work with.
Exceptional performance- one of the best crowds we've drawn all year. Matt was beyond par professional, and came providing an absolutely incredible tribute experience. Definitely a must-book for large or small events.
Approximately one month before my daughers birthday, I contacted Matt to perform as a Michael Jackson impersonator for her party. He promptly called me back, we agreed upon the services that he would provide, a price for these services and a performance date and time. We also agreed that given his work schedule that it would take him 3 - 5 days to prepare and send me a contract.
Per Matt, if the contract was not received in the 3 -5 day timeframe that he had promised, I was to call and remind him to prepare and send it. When I did not receive the contract, I called with the reminder. Again, Matt explained to me how busy he was and that he again needed a few days to get the contract in the mail. Again, he requested that if I did not receive the contract that I should again call and remind him. And, so it went for weeks, Matt would confirm his availability and promise a contract. The contract would not arrive and I would call to request it.
Now, keep in mind that a venue had been secured and guests had been invited to a party featuring Matt at the date and time that he had committed to. Obviously, as time went on I grew increasingly nervous about what I was going to do with my guests if Matt did not appear. So, in the week before the party, I asked Matt several times quite directly if he would be at my daughters party. He assured me on multiple occasions that he would be there to perform. But, still no contract arrived. Finally, on the Wednesday before the Saturday that he was to perform he happened to mention that he would be landing at our local airport at 2:00pm and that that arrival time should give him plenty of time to get to our party. 2:00pm! 2:00pm was precisely the time that he had agreed to appear at my daughters' party. When I called this to his attention, he apologized for his error and agreed to look into flight options that would get him into our city earlier (there were plenty). That was the last time that I heard from Matt. From that point on, he would not take my calls. Apparently, he could not muster the courtesy or professionalism to ever simply say that he would not perform.
Based on my experience, I would caution anyone about securing performance services from Matt. My experience indicates that he is beyond unreliable.
Response from Michael Jackson Tribute:
This review is based on a string of miscommunications, on behalf of both parties, involving the date, time, and appearance fee of the artist. No contracts or written agreements were ever in place for Mr. Macis to appear at this event. We advise potential clients to peruse through every other review, in which Mr. Macis is applauded for both his personal integrity and professional performances for his clients.

This man has an awesome personality, I had the opportunity to watch him for 3 days, work with my son on his senior project for school. His talent is amazing and he captured the entire audience. Michael Jackson is not an easy person to impersonate but this man has all it takes. I thank him publicly for his appearance. You are awesome. Jarred's mom
Matt was a pleasure to work with - very professional. He arrived on time and got all of his equipment set up right away. His costume and performance were dead-on! He interacted easily with customers and totally "in character." Very easy-going and flexible as we changed set up at the last minute. I would hire him again in a second! Great Job!
WHAT A PERFORMER!! IF YOU NEVER SAW MICHEAL IN PERSON THIS WOULD BE THE NEXT BEST THING.I WOULD RECOMMEND HIM HIGHLY VERY PROFESSIONAL AND VERY EASY TO WORK WITH. HE HAS A TALENT THAT WILL TAKE HIM FAR AND ABOVE THE REST. I WISH HIM THE BEST AND MUCH SUCCESS.
We thought he was one of the most greatest, smartest people we have ever worked with. He shared knowledge and expertise. He was so thoughtful, nice, considerate to our cause and was so willing to please and the kids loved him! We already have several wanting to see him return. Will most definitely bring him back for another show sometime. We had a couple who even thought he was the real Michael Jackson!
