Reviews & Testimonials



Brian Mason, Dublin, OH

“Matt was very easy to work with. Our correspondence with him was excellent, always getting back with us within a day or so. He did a great job keeping the kids entertained during the event, with all of the previously arranged games and contests. The event staff, as well as some guests, even commented to us how impressed they were with how well he kept the kids engaged. My sister, who was at the event, is interested in hiring Matt for her own upcoming event, and she lives outside of Dayton!”

Tracey Spector Sutton, New Albany, OH

“There is NO ONE Better for your party or event! The music, the games, the overall involvement and emphasis on fun can not be beat! So professional and extremely easy to work with! People are still talking about our event!”

Randy and Wendi Stern, Hilliard, OH

“Matt does a phenomenal job of keeping the kids entertained. There is/was no down time and everyone had a wonderful time, thanks to Matt and crew. We have recommended Matt to several friends and will continue to do so. The best money we spent for the event was on our favorite DJ!”

Christa Tobin, New Albany, OH

“I would tell them that Matt’s love of kids comes out in everything he does. They see his van and are so excited he is the DJ. He also kept them happy and busy for 5 hours at our party, not an easy task!”

Stephanie Karl, Columbus, OH

“Matt Ryan was great to work with leading up to and the day of our wedding. Always very quick to respond to our questions. Very professional and made the reception flow perfectly. Most importantly, the music was great and all of our guests had a great time!”

Michael and Debbie Griffaton, Pickerington, OH

“Matt does a great job of helping to organize and choreograph the event. Has many good suggestions. He listens to the needs of the client — for example, by playing lots of games and contests instead of just hoping the kids will dance. Prizes were also a big hit.”

Kyle and Allison Kemp, Fredericksburg, VA

“Matt Ryan is affordable and extremely professional and polished! We didn’t have to worry about anything and we loved all the music that was played.”

Hope Buergenthal, Upper Arlington, OH

"Matt is an absolute professional. He knows exactly what to do to run a perfect Bar/Bat Mitzvah party. He takes time and care to understand the family and the child and gear the party, music, and games to match. His online music request list and communications provide an excellent way to ensure all the favorite songs and games are played and all the requests are met. Matt is very approachable, friendly, and happy. His support staff is very energetic and funny and kept the kids inline while still having plenty of fun. They made participating “non-intimidating.” Matt accommodated our special request to keep the volume down as much as possible while still allowing the kids to enjoy the music. Before our party, we had never experienced a successful “noise compromise” at a bar/bat mitzvah party! Resultingly, EVERYONE, old and young, enjoyed!! Well done, Matt!"

Ruthie O'Connor, Columbus, OH

“Matt did a great job in keeping the evening flowing, making sure the timeline was followed and everyone knew where to be and when – The music selection and sound were great. Matt prepared a slide presentation for me in rememberance of my late husband. It was very emotional and exactly what I had hoped it would be. I highly recommend Matt – he has been easy to work with, very personable and professional. Thanks for everything Matt!”

Jackie and Darren Clark, Columbus, OH

“Matt Ryan did everything he said he would, then some more! We had an absolute blast, and he kept everything on a timely schedule. His professionalism and fun personality will be forever engrained in my wedding memories! I am a hairstylist, seeing and working with many brides throughout the year — I will, without a doubt, 100% recommend Matt Ryan to every bride!"

Laura Fagert, American Cancer Society, Columbus, OH

“Matt and his team were very fun and very professional. They did all we asked and more and made it fun for our participants…they were very engaged with everyone at the event! Our event was outdoor and presented many weather challenges….the entire team not only never once complained of cold or wet, but offered to do whatever they could to help at every turn with a smile!”

Heather Keighley, Zoombezi Bay, Powell, OH

“Matt is very flexible with scheduling the event and reliable. He always shows up early and rarely needs any tools from your business for set up. Matt’s set up and tear down is very efficient. He is so great to be around because he is always in a wonderful mood. The first time he runs your event he will remember how you like it ran so you have little to no stress on your end from an entertainment point of view. We have been using Matt Ryan for 6+ years and would not change it for our events.”

Cheryl Agranoff, Gahanna, OH

“I tell everybody that Matt knows the preteen/teen age group and is entertaining and engaging. The addition of the dancers is a great plus! I think that Matt Ryan Mobile DJ is fairly priced for what you get! I am proud to be the first family that has used Matt for the B’nai Mitzvah parties of all three of our children!!!”

Jerry McSwords, Westerville, OH

“Matt and Tanner did an excellent job with the music transitions (fast up beat songs when we needed fast upbeat songs and he slowed it down at the appropriate times). All songs were appropriate and nothing was offensive. His lights and sound system were top notch. The kids stayed until the very end. That was because of Matt Ryan’s excellent music choice. They had a blast!”

Christine Files, Dublin, OH

“You are very friendly, organized, accommodating, easy to work with, and you have strong written communication prior to and following the event. You really understand your audience and adjust accordingly with flexibility and ease. You are always positive!”

Chari Fogel, Lewis Center, OH

“Matt Ryan spent a lot of time getting to know what we envisioned for our mitzvah to make sure that it was everything our Bat Mitzvah child wanted. The music was fun and appropriate. The games kept the action going. Adults and kids flooded the dance floor. He made it a great event for our child!”
