About Me -
I am Matthew Stephens - a wedding singer, acoustic guitarist and wedding DJ from Yorkshire available to hire for weddings and parties of all kinds in Yorkshire, Cheshire, Derby, Lancashire, Manchester, Liverpool, Nottinghamshire, Lincolnshire and more in the UK. I have a mass of experience playing in the UK's arenas, wedding venues, universities, country pubs and everywhere in between.
I genuinely get a buzz from helping people take care of their special day! I love the feeling I get when a bride, for example, is feeling the nerves and pressure of planning her big day and I'm able to take care of everything on the music/entertainment planning side of the event and leave her with one less big worry to think about. It gives me a massive feeling of satisfaction!
I play acoustically, but when the situation fits I use some clever bits of technology to provide drums, bass, extra guitars and backing vocals to give a full band sound. This really helps me go from gentle acoustic music to a rocking, guitar soloing performance at the touch of a few buttons! I play a huge repertoire of over 300 songs ranging from the music of the 1950's all the way through to the hits of today - including songs by artists such as The Beatles, Oasis, Ed Sheeran, George Ezra, and Adele right through to rock classics by Queen, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Bryan Adams, Chuck Berry, The Eagles and many more!
DJ Service -
I also provide a professional DJ service, including disco laser lighting, smoke machine, bubble machine and any type of music - ranging from Motown, classic rock, soul, and disco - all the way through to the hits of today! I can provide ANY song that's required!
Wedding Packages -
I am also able to provide flexible and totally adjustable wedding packages designed to suit the changing moods of a day long event. I'm able to tailor the music and the packages to your tastes, requests and requirements for specific parts of the day - right up to a professional DJ service to finish the evening. I've provided these services over 400 times and can draw upon my experience to make sure that this area of your event is not something extra you have to worry about during the planning of your special day.

Would recommend 100% to friends and family! Made everyone feel involved without being over the top, taking requests, mingling around and laughing and joking with people. Sounded really good and it felt like he was enjoying the night with us. Will book again.
