Introduction: "The musician that makes your party the one your guests will rave about." I didn't come up with that. It's what clients tell me 99% of the time! PLEASE READ BEFORE CONTACTING ME 👉 My minimum fee is $1,000 for a solo performance. If your budget matches, I would love to put a custom quote together for your special event. Thanks 😀👌🙏 Whether it's playing solo acoustic, with a full band or anywhere in between, I've been performing cover and original songs for over 20 years. My repertoire spans from 1960s through the present, ranging from Adele to Zeppelin. (Ask for my song list!) From a singing cowboy in a Febreze commercial to backing Adam Levine and Blake Shelton in The Voice, Season 14 “Porch Commercial” which debuted on Super Bowl LLI, my voice has been featured in numerous regional and national ad campaigns. I perform over 100 private events per year. So I'm great with a wide age range, special requests and can assist with event planning. I would love to provide price quotes tiered for up to a 7 piece band. That way you can find the perfect balance for your budget and music entertainment needs.

We hired Matt for our wedding cocktail hour and ceremony. He was amazing. Everyone complimented us on his performance. He was very easy to work with and accommodated our quick ceremony to cocktail hour transition so the music never ended. He also was open to learning new songs to make our day so special. I would definitely hire/recommend.

Details: Cocktail hour • 101 - 150 guests • 18 - 30 years old • 31 - 50 years old • 51 or older • Guitar • Vocals • No preference • Variety • Other

We hired Matt for our Welcome Drinks and he was genuinely the best part of the night! I’m so glad that we found him and would 100% hire him again for another event (honestly might need to have an event just to listen to him again).

Details: General event / party • 26 - 50 guests • 18 - 30 years old • 31 - 50 years old • Vocals • Guitar • Pop / top 40 • Covers • Country / bluegrass • Outdoors

Matt made our Capitol Hill Cherry Blossom themed party perfect! We hired him for two hours and his music (and vibe) was amazing, we requested him to stay longer. All of our guests really enjoyed his music and he made the night absolutely special. Highly recommend.

Wow! Wow! Matt is talented and professional! I researched several musicians to hire for a party. I compared their videos I found on-line and Matt’s voice, guitar playing, and style was by far the best and exactly what I was hoping for. In fact, even better than expected. It really felt like I was hiring a celebrity with his popularity from “The Voice” commercial. The video with his young son naming the state capitals also helped to show that he was a good, honest person as I was a bit worried about being scammed. After Matt sent me his song list, I was ready to review his contract. Matt’s contract was straight forward and I signed it without hesitation. We checked in with each other the day before my party, which was great to know that he was prepared to show up and perform. And perform he did! Matt performed for 6 hours with every little breaks, ( he could have taken more!) We had asked for an additional hour since the party was still going strong and he continued without hesitation. During the breaks, my guests enjoyed chatting with him. Matt was friendly, smiling, and a big hit at the party! It was so awesome to have a concert right in my own home! Sound was perfect, Matt’s lighting was awesome, song list was fantastic, Matt’s voice and guitar playing was immediately the attraction of the night! Matt even gave my guests a chance at karaoke and it was awesome to see him laughing and partying with us!! He also had the kids sing a Christmas song while he played the guitar, how cute!! At one point my guests broke his microphone and he kept singing while he changed the microphone!!! Wow, that was so cool how he kept the vibe going and wow! His voice!! Every one of my guests asked me that night where I found Matt and continued to rave about him the next day! It was by far the coolest party all because of Matt! Matt is talented and handsome and deserves to be on the radio! Good luck Matt, my husband and I are huge fans and look forward to hiring you for the next party!

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    My minimum fee is $1,000. Typically I can perform solo for up to 3 hours for that price. Because every project is different, I'm happy to provide custom price quotes tiered for up to a 7 piece band. That way you can find the perfect balance for your budget and music entertainment needs.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    Typically the customer will email me to start the conversation. We'll then schedule a quick call to go over specifics. From there, I will issue a contract and take a 50% deposit to hold the date. Any questions and follow up calls are welcomed once the date is confirmed. The balance is due on the day of the performance.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I have "Street MBA" as I call it. In other words, I learned by doing. My education is real-world experience performing well over 2,000 shows in 20 years.
