Matt is a Chicago-based DJ, musician, and comedian, whose solo work has been described as what would happen "if Ben Folds and Flight of the Concords had a lovechild." His unique sense of levity and performance instincts render his musical performances infectious, and give him that special knack for reading a crowd, and keeping dancefloors packed.
Matt has been featured on FunnyorDie, YouTube, and Buzzfeed, and the Chicago Sun Times described his one-man show as “both toe-tapping and rib-tickling”. A former Musical Director of Second City, he’s performed for the Deltones at iO Chicago, was in the original cast of Second City’s musical comedy group “Infinite Sundaes”, and at the Black Box Comedy Festival Atlanta, LA Comedy Festival, Milwaukee Comedy Festival, Big Little Comedy Fest Cleveland, Chicago Sketchfest, The Laugh Factory Chicago, and the Charleston Comedy Festival, and opened for Reggie Watts.
Over the last decade, Matt has has DJed over 200 weddings, and tickled the ivories at too many shows to count. When he's not out in the field DJing and performing, Matt loves sharing his skills as a teacher.
Matt has released 3 albums, and recently finished penning an original TV pilot!
