Matt volunteers for a Chicago bike co-op. You can catch him pedalling his toddlerall around Evanston year-round; despite wind, rain, cold, and snow…
These are just a few samples to give you a snapshot of what we have to offer. We are always happy to customize our mixing and song selection to suit your style.
Matthew discovered his knack for using the power of music and the mic to connect with crowds when he began his DJ career in 2007 on a cruise ship. Music and movement are two of Matthew's biggest passions. Matthew specializes in teaching partygoers the latest (and oldest) dances.
Besides rocking parties on the sea and shore as an energetic and interactive DJ, Matthew is a movement artist. He trained in dance at Columbia College, Alvin Ailey, Ruth Page and Joel Hall. Matthew has performed internationally with modern dance ensembles. He dances on stilts, performs mime, and coaches ice dancers in dramatic movement techniques.
In addition to DJing and performing, Matthew manages and books teams of performing artists for corporate events, fundraiser galas, and street festivals. Matthew’s experience organizing and working hundreds of events have made him a well-rounded versatile entertainer who is sensitive to the needs of the moment. Matthew is a tried and tested talent with a steady hand and cool head from set-up to tear down. He shines at the turn-tables, with the mic, and on the dance floor.
