Introduction: "The musician that makes your party the one your will guests 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 $750 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.

Second time hiring Matt this year . Unbelievable musician and all around great guy. We intend on hiring him a third time later this year. His tone is amazing, high quality music set up and very personable with guests and willing to play across genres and various requests

Matt is amazing. It was my mom and dad’s 50th wedding anniversary and we couldn’t be with them because of Covid. Matt went to their house and serenaded them, singing their favorite songs. He even learned “their song” — Bridge Over Troubled Water — and played that for them as well. He made their day, and ours.

Matt was so talented. He played for a small group of us for my husband's 40th birthday. He was so amazing and made the party so special. I would highly recommend him and will definitely use him again in the future.

When I started looking for bands for my dad’s 70th birthday party, several bands responded to me online through different sites I searched through. I watched and listened to video and music samples from many bands. When I found Matt Santry through Thumbtack, my search was over. His talent and music far exceeded anything else I found. I loved the music so much that I made sure to make our party date around availability of the Matt Santry band to make sure they were available. The Matt Santry Band is not only a professional band in terms of the caliber of music, but also in dealing with them for booking, details, and day-of on-site. Matt was always so responsive any time I contacted him when preparing for the event and bent over backwards to accommodate any requests I had. On the day of the event, all three band members were friendly, accommodating and kind. The music did not disappoint. The drummer, keyboard player, and Matt Santry, singer and guitar player were outstanding and played the perfect music for the event. It was top-notch. Everyone at the event came up to me to tell me how good the band was. I kind of wish I had another event to plan, so I could have their live music again! I would highly recommend Matt Santry and his band for any event.

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

    My minimum fee is $500. 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.
