“Innovative (and Matt) was great.  Jason and I cannot thank him enough for all his work.  A week before our event, everything that could have possibly gone wrong did, but everything was great with Matt. In the end Jason's parents loved him and his music.  Our other guests enjoyed him as well.  Commenting on the kind of music, his ability to download any song on the spot, and the volume level.  Everyone loved him!  Thanks Matt!!”  Erica Reyes & Jason Mlot-25th Anniversary Party, Holiday Inn

"I came to Matt at Innovative Entertainment seeking stylistically specific music for a play I was putting together. I was looking to fill a wide expanse of time with music from one particular genre as a means to establish tone, energize the theatre, as well as for use during a pivotal scene. Matt worked closely with me to understand the nuances of my production as well as the sort of musical soundscape he was helping to create. From working with him his passion for music of all kinds is quite evident, as is his innate ability to match music with mood." James T. Henri, Writer-Director


I can't thank you enough for doing such an amazing job at my parents anniversary party! From our very first meeting, to the mood you set during the cocktail hour, to the wonderful dinner music, to saving my video presentation blunder, to the great dance music; you truly kept the magic of the evening special and I really appreciate it very much.

I had guests complimenting me on the music choices all evening and I was quick to point out to them that you were the one that was responsible for the music. I hope that they came to you with their praise. Your music choices even had the power to get one of the guests up and dancing who was this close to kicking the bucket just a few months ago. All of his friends at the party can't stop talking about it!”

Kevin Smith-50th Anniversary Party, The Thomas Center
