Wedding•Reviewed on December 29, 2007•From Glenview, IL
We had a song request for our first dance at the wedding and for the father daughter dance. While the band could play the songs that were so important to us, the soloist couldn't sing the songs. She was a replacement as someone got sick, but we didn't find out until that day. Everything else was great, but we were disappointed that we didn't get to dance to the lyrics of our special song.

The Matt Trio band was so wonderful and professional to work with and just great musicians overall! We had so many guests at our company's 40th anniversary party comment on how great they sounded! We will definitely use them again next year and would HIGHLY recommend!" - Suzy O'Neill, Love and Quiches Freeport, NY 5/19/2013 ;)

The Matt Nelson Trio provided the perfect musical accompaniment to our wedding. They were so easy to work with and totally ready to handle any special requests. When you hire this trio, you aren't getting a group that just does gigs on the side, you are getting full-time professional musicians. These are very accomplished artists with an extensive background in music.
I would highly recommend Matt Nelson Trio to anyone looking for any style of live jazz. They can do it all.

I was positively stunned at the level of talent of the Matt Nelson Trio! I got so many compliments on the band and how classy and elegant they made the reception. They played a wide variety of songs that appealed to many different people and they were able to keep it lively when appropriate and low key when appropriate. I had swing dancing friends, latin dancing friends, and people who just liked to ballroom dance or sway back and forth, and EVERYONE was happy with the music! Matt Nelson Trio made me look like a very smart, hip, and savvy bride!

Wedding Reception•Reviewed on May 21, 2011•From Streamwood, IL
Hiring the Matt Nelson Trio to play for our Saturday afternoon wedding reception was one of the best decisions we made! My husband and I are both musicians, so the music was a big priority for us. Graham was so professional when working out the details & special requests. A superbly talented vocalist, Sarah Young, joined the group -- I'd highly recommend her as well. Our guests (many of them musicians) raved about the music! Ironically, the keyboardist who played at our wedding was not Matt Nelson, but the musician who did play was top-notch! Overall, I would HIGHLY recommend the Matt Nelson Trio to anyone who wants to add charm and elegance to their event!
Corporate Function•Reviewed on July 25, 2008•From Chicago, IL
Due to traffic, the band was late, one arrived after the event began. There was a miscommunication between myslef and Graham, we requested Latin Jazz and they were ready to play regular jazz. It all worked out in the end, but was frustrating during the event.
Anniversary Party•Reviewed on June 17, 2017•From Crystal Lake, IL
It was a pleasure doing business with them. They were a little more expensive than some other performers in the region but worth every extra penny. The guests that attended the anniversary party were thrilled with their performance as were my parents. All that attended I think, walked away from a memorable night as all that I spoke with raved about the event.

Paul, Mike, and Phil are amazing musicians and provided the perfect soundtrack for my event.
The band was easy to work with and their performance was spot on!
Thanks for making my event special.

Diamond Trio was fantastic! I got so many compliments on the entertainment, with many of our group saying it was our best holiday party yet! They even accommodated our request to play a bit longer. I would highly recommend Diamond Trio -- they fit our theme perfectly! Thanks, guys!
