The Matt Young group was amazing! They played a 300+ person gala for us last night and the music was fabulous. They can play everything from cocktail hour jazz to pack the dancefloor funk. We were so impressed not only with their music but their professionalism and overall personalities. They were all so nice, Matt especially went out of his way to make sure everything went well and that we were on schedule etc. If you want a great band, this is the one! I wish we had another party or gala soon so I could see them again!

Matt is very professional and easy to work with. The communication and correspondance leading up to the event is always clear and friendly, and the performance is always outstanding!! I have hired The Matt Young Group for several company events this year.

The Matt Young Group was phenomenal!! I hired them to play for a customer appreciation event that we have every year for our high priority client's. They played background music for the cocktail and dinner hour and then played dance music for a couple of hours after dinner. We had never tried having dance music at our event, but wanted to give it a try this year. With The Matt Young Group, it was a huge success! They were energetic and fun to watch, and they had the dance floor packed by the end of the night. Everyone had a great time, and I have already booked them for several another events later this year, including my own daughter's wedding!!

They were amazing !!!!! I booked them online from my home in Colorado for a gig in Indiana (my parents' 50th wedding Anniversary)....and it could not have gone any smoother !!!! We had a lot of special circumstances that called for some changes from their "normal" setup and itinerary (ie. speeches, renewal of wedding vows, etc.), but they were cool about it ALL. Everything went off without a hitch....I would HIGHLY recommend them for ANY future affair. Several people asked and I gave out several business cards the day of the party. My mom is still getting calls about them !!! Don't be alarmed by their low fees....THEY ARE AWESOME and worth much more !!!!!!!!!!!

The Matt Young Group had the perfect sound and the perfect look for our corporate cocktail party. They are an extremely talented group of individuals and we got numerous compliments throughout the evening (and after) about the great music at our event. Matt is extremely easy to work with and very professional. I would recommend the Matt Young Group to anyone looking for talented entertainers to help make their event a memorable one!
