  • At the age of 2, only just starting to speak, Matt’s parents asked him what he would like for Christmas. He pointed at his father’s guitar, exclaiming ‘little guitar!”. Matt’s inseparable romance with music was established and continued to grow.

    Beginning guitar lessons at the age of 6, he would practice for hours on end every day, rarely seen without a guitar in hand. By age 7 he was playing for audiences at school concerts, showing an easy ability to command and entertain crowds.

    Matt has now been entertaining for all crowds and occasions for 20 years.

    His ability to spin his own chilled acoustic style to a raft of covers, makes it easy for him to adapt the biggest pop songs into easy listening music. Matt's versatilty, vocal elasticity and ability to feel the room makes him a perfect fit for all occoacions. Whether it be walking down the aisle, partying long into the night or providing light entertainment for a corperate social gathering, you'll certaintly remember Matt for giving you the perfect soundtrack.

  • It was an absolutely amazing day, so much fun and I wish I could re-live it all again.
    Matt is a beautiful person with an equally beautiful voice. Matt is bubbly, kind and absolutely nailed the music. He picked up on the vibe we were after and our dance floor was pumping all night. My 90 year old grandpa even got up to dance and he can barely walk so that was a huge deal. Matt fit in so well with my family and friends, he really was incredible.

    Tahlia and Adam

    We were so impressed with Matt's performance and ability to curate a setlist that catered to the wide spread of generations at our engagement party! He has such an impressive voice and guitar skills. Matt had everyone up and dancing and took as many requests as he could. Will definitely be recommending Matt to all our friends and can't wait to have him play at our wedding in December!

    Beth Keogh & Stuart McLennan

    Matt J was fantastic and was exactly what I was after for my 30th party. He played a huge variety of music and was great at taking requests. I would highly recommend! Paul from Unplugged was so helpful when organising the event and selecting an artist with the music and vibes that I hoped for within my budget.

    Tabatha O’Sullivan-Kirchner

    Still get goosebumps thinking about you singing me down the aisle! We were so lucky to have you and can't thank you enough. You had people dancing all night long too!

    Sarah & Clay

    Matt was absolutely incredible! He went above and beyond to make it a fun and enjoyable night for everyone. Many of our guests commented on how amazing he was and he kept us entertained well into the night.

    Perri Gould

    We were lucky to have MattJ as our Musician for my sisters Hens Day and we were all so impressed as he created such an entertaining atmosphere. He was nothing short of amazing with his acoustic and DJ performance!
    My dealings with Paul through unplugged was so positive and he always responded so quickly to my emails. Thank-you for a great experience!
