  • Matt was so wonderful to work with to plan our wedding day music and emcee-ing. We wanted a DJ who would do an exceptional job of getting people to dance and setting the mood. We gave him songs and genres we liked and he asked us some questions on what general styles were a hard no for us and which we loved. From that he created an amazing wedding sound that people were complimenting all night and after the wedding. He had literally everybody on the dance floor until the end. He does a cool thing where you pick a last song that everybody knows and can sing to- it was such a great way to end the night (or get the momentum going for the after party). His knowledge and experience working with our wedding venue, Darlington House, was also a plus, as he brought along lighting for the rose garden that worked perfectly. We can't recommend him enough to anybody searching. Ps- he can also play guitar if you want one person who can do live music for ceremony or cocktail hour and a DJ for the rec... Read more

  • We hired Matt for our wedding at The Thursday Club and could not have asked for a better DJ. From the start, he was super nice and accommodated our music requests while giving us suggestions on what songs would pair well and even helping us plan out our day-of timeline so our reception flowed better. We had about 3 hours of dancing at our wedding and it made me so happy to see that Matt had our guests on the dance floor for the majority of the night! He even worked with us to create a cohesive mix that would incorporate salsa and reggaeton for my Puerto Rican family, while still playing the classics and more modern music for our other guests. It was the perfect night and we could not recommend Matt enough for helping to make our wedding one we'll never forget!

  • DJ Matt was one of the best decisions we made with wedding planning! We live in Washington DC, but the wedding was in La Jolla. No problem, he met us in a Panera when we visted the summer before the wedding, calmly explaining all the little details, and asking all the questions to get to know us better as a couple and what our musical tastes are. Gay wedding, with pop diva music as a theme? NO PROBLEM, he was so excited about it and had some many great ideas. On the big day, so many little details I was anxious about, I had no reason to be. He mic'd the officiant, had mics for the readers, played music before the ceremony and as our recessional in coordination with live artists. Unlike some wedding DJ's, he did NOT make the reception about him, constantly giving needless commentary and cracking bad jokes, he was very low-key and stuck to the introductions and major announcements and such. People were dancing all night long, to the best music. Such a talented great guy, we're th... Read more

  • Matt was a fantastic DJ, from the pre-ceremony classical music right through to the last dance of the night! The music flowed seamlessly all day and night. Thanks to his DJ skills, pretty much everyone at our wedding danced like crazy and didn't want it to end! Matt came highly recommended by our wedding planner. I met with him before the wedding and discussed the kinds of music that my fiance and I like. He was so helpful in guiding us, categorising our various tastes, and coming up with musical styles/themes for each part of the wedding. He is extremely knowledgeable about music, and we felt totally happy giving him some free rein as well as making specific requests. The result was a wedding playlist that was totally "us" but better, including songs we didn't know we liked! I would wholeheartedly recommend Matt if you are getting married in San Diego!

  • Matt was everything we were hoping for from our DJ; the dance floor could not have been more energetic and packed and he was professional, authentic and never cheesy which was important for us. All of my vendors who had previously worked with him told us how great he was and they were absolutely right! He gave us tons of freedom as far as music choices but also had great suggestions, many of which we went with. He was also very flexible and did his thing along side a saxophonist who we hired to add to the dance party. His transitions between songs are seamless and he is the perfect addition to your team of vendors if you want a fun and memorable wedding!

  • Matt was the best!! He was professional and very thoughtful. We talked with him a couple times before the wedding to review the details, and he was excellent the day of running our music for the ceremony and cocktail hour. At the reception, Matt kept all of our guests dancing the entire night - there was never a lull in dancing! I may be a bit biased as the bride, but he was by far the best wedding DJ I've ever heard!!!

  • Planning a wedding from across the country was no walk in the park, but Matt made it easy and fun!! His amazing online system keeps you organized and comfortable along the whole way. I was able to sit at home and outline my whole wedding and the coordinating music with his online app that walks you through every moment in your wedding. In addition, he was always extremely easy to get a hold of, had an awesome grasp for what we wanted in the music, and an amazing knowledge of what would keep our friends on the dance floor. In addition, he recommended some great additional vendors for us to use. If every every vendor was as amazing and organized as Matt, wedding planning would be a breeze! :) Would use again for any event in San Diego!

    Thank you so much, Justine! I had a great time working with you both as well. I knew you would have a beautiful wedding, but I didn't know you would have such a fun crowd and an amazing dance party! Thanks for the review, and take care!

  • I cannot say enough how amazing Matt was for our wedding!!! We had a destination wedding, so we didn't get to have a chance to meet Matt face to face before the actual wedding, but we had many phone sessions with him in order to plan for the reception. He was always professional, on time, and asked all of the right questions and accommodated anything that my husband or I wanted. I was very worried about how to get things during the reception to run smoothly and how to seamlessly run through different parts of the reception (first dance, food, dancing, bouquet and garter toss, etc.) My worries were very quickly at an end because of Matt. We walked about the order and time of events on the phone, and I didn't even have to think about the order of events during the reception. Matt took care of EVERYTHING! He made things so smooth and seamless that the reception seemed to flow without a single problem! I just want to say, if you are a huge Star Wars fan, do yourself a favor and have Mat... Read more

    Thank you so much, Devyn! I'm flattered. I had such a great time working with you as well, and you had such a beautiful wedding. I am so glad to have been a part of that, and I appreciate your words more than you know!

  • Matt was recommended to us through a friend in the Wedding industry. The minute I booked my wedding date she told us we had to book Matt first thing. It was the best decision we made. He was easy to work with and took time to meet with us to get our vision for the perfect wedding dance part and then made it happen. If you want your guests on the dance floor Matt is your best choice! He was also awesome working with our tricky venue layout and suggesting the best lighting/sound options for us.

  • We would give Matt 6 stars if possible! His passion for his craft was evident from our first meeting. I've had friends from our wedding ask for his contact or if he made playlists that they could listen to! We have an eclectic taste in music but Matt kept a perfect vibe in each phase from seating to cocktail hour to reception to *dance party*. His professionalism and initiative took a lot of stress out of our planning (he was always ready to meet or even text about song choices if we had some new ideas). He also did a fantastic job as MC, especially for the reception and traditional dances, keeping it classy, inviting, and fun. I know DJs get tired after a couple years, but I hope that Matt will continue pursuing his passion for a long, long time because his attitude, talent and dedication *made* our wedding.

  • Matt is an absolute delight to work with. He was everything we could have hoped for and more. Matt is very professional, knows how to read an audience, and above all he loves what he does. If I had to do it all over again, I would definitely have Matt DJ in a heartbeat. Our wedding was amazing and Matt contributed hugely to that success!! A million thanks to DJ Matt Phipps!

  • I can not tell you enough great things about Matt! We just had our wedding 2/25/17 and besides my husband and I being so happy my guests were as well. Everyone came up to us to tell us how much fun they had and how great our DJ was. As I planned my wedding the only trouble I knew I would find is a DJ. I randomly just searched local DJ and Choice Entertainment came up. I looked at Matts website and knew immediately I wanted to meet with him. His website originally sold me. He explained so well about himself and how we likes to DJ for weddings that I felt like I already knew him and he would do exactly what I wanted. Upon meeting with Matt I didn't even need to decide anything, I said pull up a contract. The process was so fun. Matt knows his music and got to know us as a couple and what we wanted for our wedding. We explained our music preference and the flow we were looking for. He was right on track as well. His client portal is so easy to do and helps a lot with planni... Read more
