Matthew performed brilliantly at our wedding March 8. We'd read the reviews on Gigmasters, reviewed his song list and asked for a bid. We never dreamed we'd be so fortunate as to find the perfect artist. We wholeheartedly endorse him for his musical talents, and for responsiveness before the wedding as well. Matthew really cares about your event, passionately, with a lot of pride and serious intention to fulfill his commitment of excellence. We are humbled to have made him our choice for our special day. Our only regret is that we don't have another occasion coming up to have Matthew perform. We were, and out guests were, blown away!

- Jeff and Marie-Josephine, Hotel DuPont, Wilmington, DE 03/08/14


Can't wait to have him back! What a pleasure....can't say enough good things about him....he made the night so much fun, I think because it seems that he truly enjoys what he does...and he does it well! Not only is he a great entertainer/musician....I don't know if there's a nicer guy around!

- Patti M, Towers Country Club, Floral Park, NY 01/17/14


After an exhausting search for a live entertainer for the reception and cocktail hour at our wedding my wife and i had the pleasure of meeting Matt Cutillo. We were immediately impressed by his musical talent, professionalism and personality. Although we took a day to think it over we knew minutes after meeting Matt that he would be the perfect choice for us. On our wedding day he arrived promplty, was ready to go before the guests arrived and provided us and our guests with an amazing afternoon. I am not exaggerating when i say that Matt helped make my wedding one of the most pleasant and enjoyable days of my life. I recommend Matt without hesitation. AWESOME!

- Matt P, Wedding Ceremony & Cocktail Hour, Miller Beach Surf Club, NY 10/6/13


As always Matt doesn't disappoint. I've hosted a holiday party for many years and for the past 6 or 7 I have hired Matt to provide live musical entertainment. Returning guests ask me ahead of time if Matt will be playing and are always excited to find that to be the case. Matt adjusts his style, volume and song selection to fit the mood of the party as the evening progesses. On top of that he adeptly engaged the guests and solicited requests... one of which included allowing a guest to sing. He is a consumate professional and braved blizzard conditions to ensure he was on time for the party. Looking forward to seeing you again next year Matt.

- Chris B, Englewood Cliffs, NJ 12/14/13


Matt crushes it....again So we hire Matt for the 4th time, to play for family & friends after my daughter's baptism in NYC....mind you this gig started at 11AM. By 12:15pm Matt had kids from 3yrs to 80 yrs old goin nuts- the mimosa's & bloody's were out in force & what was going to be a chill after-party turned into a raucous free-for all. Matt played til 3pm & everyone who hadnt heard him at earlier family parties was asking me how we found him. He is a superb talent who always goes the extra mile- he can play ANYTHING, & most importantly he has the best attitude of any entertainer I've dealt with.

- Sean P, Rosie O'Grady's, NYC 12/7/13


Matthew played for our family on the 2nd day of an extended Thanksgiving under a tent. He was amazing. Everyone commented on the quality of his performance and his voice. And there were so many pictures snapping and videos being taken, as he hit on everyone's favorite songs. He did a fabulous rendition of Darius Rucker's Wagon Wheel, which is my niece Ciara's favorite. Ciara was dancing and everyone was smiling. And he spent 2 weeks learning the Fields of Athenry (a special Irish tune), which made me tear up. Matt is a class act and we would definitely, DEFINITELY, definitely hire him again. And what was supposed to be a 2 hour gig somehow turned into 4. :)

- Tanya H, Whitestone, NY, 11/29/13


It's not often that I read (or trust) so many 5 star reviews for anything. But believe the truth behind all of these! Matthew was an absolute pleasure to work with from the very beginning. A true gnetlemen. Our (often hard-to-please) guests were impressed with his talent, demeanor and selection of music and many have already followed up to ask how we found him and how they can get in touch for future events. My husband and I were very behind schedule in out music selections but Matthew learned a potential first dance song in a matter of hours! Incredible! I highly recommend him for any event. You will not be disappointed.

- Kimberly S, Full 7.5 hour Wedding, Paramus, NJ 11/24/13


Matthew went above and beyond. A true professional and talented artist. Whether he's playing just one song or for 3 hours - the dedication is evident. It's incredible how reliable he was through the whole process. It was an amazing night that we'll always remember and Matthew was an instrumental part of the proposal. He nailed it. I would highly recommend him for any event!

- David B, Surprise Marriage Proposal @ Del Posto, Manhattan 11/21/13


Matt was great. Really. Truly. Great. I highly recommend him.

- Ryan F, Classical Guitar Wedding Ceremony, Trump Soho, NYC 11/9/13


To put it simply, Matt was amazing at our event last night. Not only was he talented and professional, he was also extremely engaging and warm with all of our guests. Multiple people in attendace complimented our staff in our entertainment choice due to his excellent performance. Matt helped to make our already special evening that much more special by being able to read our guests and deliver just what they would enjoy. I highly recommend Matt for any kind of event, because I know no matter what kind of day or evening you have in mind, Matt will make it just that much better. Thank you Matt, we are so grateful for your help and we hope to work together again SOON!

- Nora O, Easter Seals Fundraiser, Botanical Gardens, Bronx, NYC 11/7/13


How would we describe Matt in one word ? AMAZING! Matt performed for our wedding and he went above and beyond! His personality, voice, and charm all blended perfectly together. Matt got to our wedding 90 minutes early to set up and performed through out our wedding. All of our guests enjoyed his stylish singing, especially all of the children. They were non stop dancing. Thank you so much Matt, for making our special day more special.... And that was because of you.?????? Your new buds,

- Greg & Alex, Wedding Ceremony, Cocktail Hr, Reception in Baiting Hollow, NY 11/2/13


Matthew played my sister's bonfire themed bridal shower and he was awesome! I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a fun, talented musician to enhance any type of party. He was incredibly accommodating and a joy to have. Thank you Matthew!!!!

- Megan O, Bridgewater, MA 10/26/13


Matthew is a true professional and very sensitive to the needs of our event, which was a mix of children and adults. He's extremely accommodating and easy to work with which is greatly appreciated when trying to juggle all the demands of planning for a big event. I would highly recommend him for any event

- Todd R, Suffern, NY 10/20/13


Matthew is a true professional and artist. He was great at reading the crowd of our event and tailoring the music to fit. He had a huge variety of songs and was well prepared. Awesome guy, great entertainment, can't wait to have another event to hire him again!

- Dayna C, Cold Spring Harbor, NY 10/19/13


Matt exceeded my expections in satisfaction. Since the moment I spoke to Matt to arrange my event, he handled himself with utmost professionalism. He put my nerves at ease and assured me the entertainment for the event will be a wonderful experienced for all. He delivered an outstanding performance. His selection of music was soft and soothing. He welcomed requests and celebrated our guest of honor to the fullest. Matt is truly a professional performer. We will always remember this day and the happy memories Matt help create for us, especially for my guest of honor. I look forward to doing business with him in the future.

- Anne G, Levittown, NY 10/05/13


Matt blew us away again!We had the privilege of having Matt entertain us last year for my daughter's communion.Matt played an incredible selection of acoustic songs that were perfect for the venue. Fast fwd a year later-Matt's totally up'd his game!He still brings the ability to play a range of acoustic songs,but adds the ability to play w/ a full band,complete with backing vocals.He goes above and beyond to make sure every aspect of his performance is perfect.Matt played an incredible range of songs from the Peppers to Johnny Cash to Earth,Wind & Fire.He had us all dancing & singing,enjoying every moment. It's w/o question a must to have Matt play your next event!

- Kevin H, Seaford, NY 09/28/13


Matthew performed a 2-hour set of guitar and vocals for a small birthday party in Manhattan. Arriving on time wearing a nice grey suit and tie, he began playing instrumental classical music on his 12-string guitar. Then as the night progressed, he adapted to the guests' mood performing vocal / acoustic guitar sing-a-longs. He also worked in some backing tracks which filled out the sound and got the guests dancing. From then on he took requests for the rest of the evening as the guests danced, sang, and laughed. Leading up to the event Matthew was always quick to reply to emails, and easy to deal with. Highly recommended and my first call for future events.

- Nat B, River House, NYC, 09/26/13


Matthew was a pleasure to communicate with while arranging our party. On the day of the party he arrived early with a big smile on his face and we immediately knew we were going to have a great night. Not only is Matthew extraordinarily talented, he also has a wonderful personality. Our backyard party was just a casual gathering of friends, but having Matthew perform elevated it to a night we will all remember! The music was outstanding! I would not hesitate to use Matthew again, and will highly recommend him to anyone! (Ps he even went the extra mile and learned my favorite song!)

- Sharon S, Bergenfield, NJ 09/07/13


Matthew was amazing! From the moment I requested a quote, he's been the most accommodating and attentive person throughout my whole wedding process. Though I'm a very laid back person about planning, he was very diligent, precise, enthusiastic and he was very intent on getting back to any question or concern I had within moments. The first time I ever contacted him, he treated me as though I'd been a long time friend whom he couldn't wait to see and play music for! He went above and beyond to play my favorite songs, and everyone who attended the wedding commented on the amazing job he did. I would recommend him in a heart beat. Thank you Matthew!

- Tina & Dave, Full 7.5 hour Wedding, - Southington, CT 08/24/13


Matthew is an amazing musician! He is highly professional and extremely accomodating! He has played at two different events for us and each time he left my guests speechless. Can't wait to have him play at my next event! Thank you!

- Lucia H, Beach Wine Tasting, East Patchogue, NY 08/22/13


My wife and I have known Matt since his years at Göttingen University in Germany. Now that we have a son who really loves music we thought of having Matt in concert for his 10th birthday. As we live in Estonia, Matt gave the concert via Skype. We're proud to be the first people Matt performed for over the Internet. Video and audio were crisp and clear. Matt played all our son's favorites and the whole crowd at our place had a real good time. Musically, Matt is a genius. Add his humor and flexibility, and you have a great gig. If you live too far away to have him in person, having him via Skype is the next best thing. Thank you for making our son's birthday special!

- Marcus & Airi H, Estonia 08/21/13


Matthew made my 40th birthday bash really wonderful!! He was very entertaining and accommodating. This is the second time we hired Matthew. I highly recommend him. He is an extremely talented musician and a very nice person! Matthew try's his hardest to please everyone! He is also very dependable.

- Jane Spring Northport, Ny 08/03/13


Matthew is an amazing talent ! He plays beautifully, sings beautifully and is a beautiful person inside and out! He somehow makes you feel like you've known him for a long time even though you just met him. He is professional and well spoken. Matthew made our party a success! Everyone kept asking us where we found him and many of our guests asked for his business card. A true talent!!! We are going to hire him for our daughters wedding, so she can walk down the isle to the sweet sounds of Matthew's guitar. Thank you Matthew!

- Erika, Sam, Sophia & Jon, Oakdale, NY 07/28/13


This is the 2nd time we have used Matt for a very important day in our lives. First, it was our wedding and now our daughter's 1st birthday party. We have been blown away both times. First of all, Matt was in a minor car accident on his way to the birthday party and still showed up on time and ready to rock. That just shows how much dedication Matt has to his clients. Everyone at the party loved Matt's music and we have received many compliments on our decision to use him for the party. We can't wait to have Matt play at our next big function. He is the best out there and you won't be disappointed!

- Brian L, Cinnaminson, NJ, 07/20/13


This is the second year in a row we had Matt come to our home for a summer party, & once again he was incredible. From playing 50's tunes for the older folks to top 10 hits & everything in between, Matt is a unique talent who connects with his audiences in a very personal way. He'll continue to be the only live musician we call when we entertain family & friends...

- Sean P, Mattituck, NY 07/27/13


Matt was a true gentleman and showed great care and concern for my event. His music was perfect for my occasion. I would recommend Matt to anyone and plan on using him for any future events I may have.

Harley S, West Islip, NY 07/27/13


We had originally planned on hiring Matthew to play our wedding ceremony and cocktail hour but after meeting with him we felt he would be perfect to play the entire wedding. Our friends and family thought it was a very risky move but we felt Matthew fit perfectly with our beach wedding vibe. From beginning to end he brought professionalism to a whole new level. At the wedding we got compliments on his performance from too many guests to remember and he created an atmosphere we had dreamed of but never imagined possible. He truly comes with our highest recommendation, so much so that we've decided to write this from our honeymoon on the beach in Bermuda.

- Joanna E, Bayville, NY 07/18/13


Matthew Cutillo was Awesome!!!! The most professional and talented entertainer anyone could ask for! His music made our event and I highly recommend Matthew Cutillo!!

- Raymond M, Brightwaters, NY 07/18/13


Our experience was wonderful. Matt was a true professional during the entire process. We had a few discussions leading up to the event to make sure we had all his needs met for set-up, location etc. and he arrived early to make sure all would go smoothly. He created the perfect vibe for our daughter's college graduation party. Many guests (young and not so young) commented how talented a performer Matt was and how they enjoyed relaxing, listening and watching Matt, as if they were at a concert! We look forward to when we can invite Matt back to our home for another gathering of family and friends. Having Matt at our home created a lasting memory for all!

- Bob S, N Massapequa, NY 07/06/13


We hired Matt for our 4th of July Party and Matt's performance was nothing short of pure top notch entertainment. Matt is a talented musican and true professional that has that special ability to bring your party or event to new heights.

- Donald H, Massapequa, 07/04/13


Matt is a very talented musician with a great voice. Also the nicest guy you could meet. Definitely get him for your party/event if you can!

- Eileen S, Water Mill, NY 07/03/13


Matthew played during our wedding ceremony and cocktail hour, and did a wonderful job!! He was so accommodating and learned to play specific requests leading up to the event to make sure our day was perfect. We couldn't have been happier with how everything turned out. I would highly recommend Matthew for any event/party!

- Lauren M, Hauppauge, NY 06/29/13


Matt was a huge hit. He can play in any venue and any type of music. He had no problem with special requests. We asked that he play to the age group in the audience which he certainly did. And the group ranged from 25-65 years old. His talent is exceptional, He is sophisticated, warm, and he never overpowered the room. And never stopped singing! He clearly loves what he is doing. Matt was more than accommodating. There was a transportation problem which he dealt with. We look forward to his return at our Club and highly recommend him.

- Suzie D, Point O Woods, Fire Island, NY 06/28/13


Matt was professional as always. He was on time and prepared. The guests and our neighboring stores were impressed with his performance. Matt took requests from some of our guests also. His sound was very laid back, cool, and relaxing. Since the last time he was here he had some new material and background music also. It was a very pleasurable experience and we would not hesitate to use Matt again.

- Caitlin B, Tommy Bahama, Riverhead, NY 06/28/13


"I hired Matt for my 30th birthday party held in my backyard. Matt was always available if I had any questions before my party. Matt is a great performer and made my party fun and special. I would recommend him to anyone looking for an acoustic guitarist for their parties!"

- Victoria P, Massapequa, NY 06/22/13


"Matthew was incredible! He is an amazing musician! I cannot wait to hear him again! He made the night spectacular!"

- Mary Jane H, Water Club, NYC 06/21/13


"Matt is a true professional. From the planning stage until the last song, he was focused on pleasing my guests at the party.He is talented, versatile and sounds better live than on his on-line demos. I would recommend Matt without reservation and my guests were wowed. He produces a full rich sound and has an amazing repertoire of music. Most importantly, Matt is kind and grounded. He arrived early and frequently checked in to make sure that he was performing to our satisfaction. Matt deserves his ranking as #1 in this category. This review is my way of showing my appreciation. Thanks Matthew."

- Barry R, Blackwell's, Wading River, NY 06/15/13


"Matt was amazing!! We had a backyard 60th party. Not only does he have a GREAT voice, his personality is just the same!! He sang non stop, and engaged the entire party. (including the 20 year olds). I would recommend Matt to anyone looking for a perfect addition to a party...."

- Beth M, Massapequa, NY 06/9/13


"This guy is a pro. The whole thing could not have been better. He managed special requests without a hitch, arrived early, dressed properly, and was prepared for every possibility. His range is just incredible; he did some classical stuff for us during the cocktail hour and all the singer-songwriter stuff we love for the dinner. Dozens of our guests asked for his name. Complete professionalism throughout and undeniable talent. My advice to you is to stop reading this now and book him before someone else does first."

- Andrew P, Chakra Restaurant, Paramus, NJ 06/08/13


Matt played my 40th bday at my house last month. Many reviews mention similar accolades. I can pull my thesaurus and be creative , but the words "talented"' , "professional", "accommodating" and above all, caring, are spot on. My guests were all thoroughly impressed and had a great time interacting with Matt. All the best to you Matt, and we will definitely see you again. Thanks

- Denis T, Rockville Centre, NY 06/07/13


TO ALL: HIRE THIS GUY, HE IS UNBELIEVABLE. Matt is a pro in every way, from the 1st conversation & w/every subsequent text and call, he was fantastic. He showed up early & performed non-stop for 5 hrs!! His song list is incredible & he wow'd the crowd by playing special requests & playing the songs that were near and dear to my wife's heart. HE ABSOLUTELY KILLED IT!! He made our party a huge success and I would hire him again in a nanosecond. Our guests are still talking about how good he was. Matt is a true artist and a true pro who was incredibly passionate about making our event special! Thank you so much Matt for making my wife's party unforgettable!"

- Jeff S, Chatham, NJ 06/01/13


We worked with Matt for our first live entertainment night at Brownstones Coffee. He was pleasant, accommodating, and of course extremely talented. If we have another event of its kind in the future we would without a doubt invite Matt back and we would recommend him to anyone we know.

- Chris K, Amityville, 5/31/13


Matthew was excellent again, our 2nd time hiring him, great performer and a true professional! - Vineyard Vines, Manhassett 05/29/13


"Outstanding. I can not believe how good this guy is on the whole. Matt played for 6 hrs!!! Everyone at the party kept sayin "I need his phone number to book him". We had a BBQ with 40 adults plus kids and he played everything people wanted to hear. He played Billy Joel. Bon Jovi. Cat Stevens tim Mcgraw Jimmy buffet. Chesney. Zac Brown etc and did every song with a great touch of his own style. The question isnt if we will hire Matt again its when. What a nice guy. We had such a good time and a big reason was because we hired Matt to play. The rating system should let me give him a 10 out of 5 !!!! Thanks Matt. A++++++ The OHara's"

- Matt O, Massapequa, NY, 05/26/13


Client Feedback from last weekend just in: "I used Matthew during a Suprise proposal to my fiancé. Matthew was extremely professional and went above and beyond to make sure everything stayed on schedule. I really couldn't have asked for more! I would highly recommend Matthew to anyone who was looking for a performer and would definitely use him again in the future! Thanks again for everything, Matt!"

- Jason C, 05/18/13, Lincoln Center Plaza, New York City, NY

Hey everyone matt is a true professional he went above and beyond for me for my special event he learned two songs in 48 hours and sang them perfectly!

Makes great suggestions and listens to what the customer wants. Dressed well, great voice and very personable!! There is nothing more you can ask from someone. His goal is to satisfy the customers wish list and it comes easy to a guy like him bc he is passionate and enjoys what he does.

- Rocco B, Surprise Marriage Proposal, Mystic Seaport, CT 5/4/13


Matthew was awsome! Everything was perfect. He sounded amazing and was so warm and accomadating to anything we needed or wanted. I have already recommended him to friends and would definitely use him again!

- Lara B, Communion Celebration @ Milleridge Inn, Jericho, NY 4/27/13


Matt was Fantastic!!! He did an amazing job at keeping the party alive and was perfectly on point with the music selection. Every age group was engaged, from the small children to the grandparents! He is an absolute pleasure to work with and gives 100% to make sure the crowd is having the time of their lives. I would strongly recommend him for any event to make your occasion extra special and memorable!!

- Jen B, Communion Celebration, Waterzooi, Garden City, NY 4/20/13


From the very beggining stages of planning our wedding I knew I wanted to book Matthew doe our ceremony and cocktail hour, I had seen him play at another event and thought he was extremely talented! I told him what I was looking for abs he was more than accommodating. The execution of my event was flawless and be was a very large part if that. We got many compliments on how talented and professional he was. Overall Matthew was a pleasure to work with and we would jump at the chance to book him for future events in our lives.

- Julianne F, Babylon, NY 3/9/13


Matthew was awesome!!! He opened my wife's 40th birthday party with an amazing 1hour nonstop set during the cocktail hour. I would definitely recommend him to friends and look forward to using him again for future affairs.

- Phil S, Carle Place, 4/5/13


Matthew is the consummate musical professional -- he has an excellent range of songs to play, an outstanding voice, and his guitar playing is superb. This was the second time we hired Matthew to play at our holiday event; and I will certainly ask him back again. - Anita G, Babylon, NY 12/21/12


Mathew Cutillo was phenomenal! From the first time we spoke on the phone up to the ebd of his show, he was very professional and courteous. Amazing performer with with a great voice. You cant go wrong with Matt. I highly recommend him for any event. - Christopher B, East Meadow FD, NY 12/15/12


This is the 4th time I hired Matt and I cant wait to hire him again!! He knows every song possible and sings them all great!! My entire comany loved him!! - Tony G, Ancora Restaurant, Manhattan, NYC 12/13/12


Matt was excellent to work with from the moment we booked him until the moment the party was over. We received multiple compliments from guests about how great he was and how great the song selection was. The party was in a small room and it was nice that the music didn't make it impossible to hold conversation - he was at the perfect volume for the space. We had a request for two songs to be sung that weren't on Matt's list, but he made it his business to learn them both and perform them to perfection! We would recommend him to anyone and everyone that wants a talented and professional musician for an event!

- Mark & Margaret, Heart of Portugal, Mineola, NY 12/08/12


Matthew Cutillo made my brother's proposal to his girlfriend an experience that the two of them will remember for the rest of their lives! His professionalism, otherworldly talent, and unrivaled warmth and kindness were more than we could even have hoped for. We're trying to push our other brother into proposing to his girlfriend already, just so we can hire Matthew once again! - David S, New York, NY 11/21/12


Matthew was great at our event in Rochester, NY. It was hard finding entertainment for our event since it was on a Sunday and thanksgiving week! He took the long drive to Rochester and our guest enjoyed his music very much. I look forward to working with Matthew again and highly recommend his talent. He played songs that everyone knew and could relate to. We were only expecting 100 guests and we topped that at 217...just because of his music! I am still receiving feedback from our event. Thanks again, Matthew!

- Nisa T, eScholar Conference, Rochester, NY 11/18/12


Matthew was great! - Sarah & Simon S, Waldorf Towers, NYC 11/17/12


We hired Matthew for our October 2012 wedding to provide live guitar music for the ceremony and cocktail hour. What a great decision that turned out to be. Matthew provided beautiful, tasteful music that our guests raved about. Matthew is a clear professional at his craft. He stayed in constant contact with us leading up to the wedding and ensured he was receptive to our requests. Matthew also exhibited great energy that was refreshing when navigating the stress of wedding planning. Matthew's music was exceptional and it was clear that he gave it his all and was well prepared. We recommend Matthew highly for couples looking for live music at their wedding. - Andrew Y, De Seversky Mansion, Old Westbury, NY 10/21/12


Matt was absolutely fantastic at our wedding! He was so well prepared and paid attention to every last detail. He made our event truly special! Everyone had a blast! - Jose G, Basking Ridge, NJ 10/14/12


Matthew was great! Not only did he learn our requested songs, provide excellent communication, acted with the utmost professionalism, but his performance was amazing as he is a true talent and rolled with the flow of the event!

- Ben B, Wedding Ceremony, Long Beach, NY 09/29/12


I met Matthew at another party that he was performing at and immediately knew I wanted him to perform at our engagement/housewarming party. He was extremely accommodating and exceeded our expectations. Throughout the night, Matt played music suitable for the wide range of ages and was taking requests as well. With a smile he gladly played anything we wanted. He truly made our party a huge success and I would definitely recommend him! - Pam F, Massapequa, NY 09/29/12


My husband and I could write a book about Matt Cutillo. He first played my brother's

backyard wedding a few years ago and made the night. He later played a good friends wedding and again, made the night. I was lucky enough to have Matt drive 3 hours to play at my wedding ceremony. I can not express how amazing Matt's performance was. He is one of the most genuine, caring, professional, attentive, polite and talented people that we have ever encountered. I cried while dancing with my new husband to our favorite song that Matt had learned and perfected for us. I am going to plan a party just so I can have him play!

- Aly K, Wedding Ceremony & Cocktail Hour, Montgomery, NY 09/22/12


I hired Matthew Cutillo to play at my husband's surprise 40th. It was a 60s surf theme. Matthew arrived nice and early. He set up quickly and provided fun music as he tested his sound (and I got ready.) He learned some songs that I had requested plus had a huge playlist. My husband and I loved all of the surf guitar songs that Matthew played. My guests loved Matthew as well. A number of them asked for his card because they want to hire him in the future. He sings beautifully and plays so well. He really set a fun mood for the party. I would recommend him and would like to hire him again. - Kate M, Southampton, NY 09/15/12


He is the best awesome guitar player and singer not to mention the nicest guy!!!! He makes a party - I say you totally want him at your party!!! Not one bad comment.

- Kerry M, Franklin Square, 09/08/12


My new wife and I met Matt over a year ago in preparing for our big day. Matt became more to us than just another hired vendor, he became our friend. Upon meeting him at the Melting Pot (Restaurant in Farmingdale) for a meet and greet both Coll and I knew we made the right decision in hiring him. The relationship was under way and following that first meeting we worked together to make the setlist perfect. I even challenged Matt on a few new songs which I think any serious artist appreciates. We could not recommend Matt enough so if its a backyard BBQ or your special day look no further as you will not be disappointed. Thanks again, Matt you're the man. Love, Mike and Colleen

- Mike K, Wedding Cocktail Hour & Ceremony, Riverhead, NY 09/02/12


It's not enough to comment on Matthew Cutillo's abundant talent & others sufficiently described that anyway. I held an intimate wedding dinner at a lovely waterfront restaurant. Matthew wasn't just the musician.He was an integral part of how the event became a loving celebration.His music filled the room with quiet beauty.His musical interpretation of our special requests touched our hearts. It is clear from other reviewers that Matthew is terrific at all types of events requiring varied performances. For us he needed to be, and was, a gorgeous backdrop of sound to our lives. If you heard his interpretation of "Falling Slowly" you would know exactly what I mean!

Matthew's music was fantastic and without doubt turned our cocktail party into a truly memorable evening. The party was on Fire Island, which means that travel and other logistics were challenging, but Matthew was a complete gentleman and so easy-going and pleasant to work with throughout the whole process. We would recommend him without hesitation and look forward to having him back in the future!

- Gaby H, Point O'Woods, Fire Island, NY 08/25/12


From the get go, Matthew was very professional and quick to answer any of our questions and requests. Altho during the actual ceremony I did not get to meet Matthew in person, I heard him playing throughout, our guests were raving about his performance. I would not hesitate to recommend Mr. Cutillo for any event, I would give him 6 stars if I could! Thank you for helping make our wedding day even more special.

- Rosemary A, Botanical Gardens, Bronx, NY 08/24/12


Matthew was great! He has a great voice and was a fantastic addition to our party!

- Anthony C, Brick, NJ 08/18/12


Matthew Cutillo in two words? THE BEST. Matt was a pleasure to work with in planning out my proposal in central park. One of the most compassionate people that I have ever met. He devotes 110% into every experience that he takes on and is very professional. Between swapping e-mails, phone calls and texts, things could have not gone any better. Even when he was double booked he still committed to my special event. I whole heartedly recommend Matt for any events that you plan in the future!

- Dan G, NYC, Surprise Proposal, 08/15/12


Matt was awesome! He was a pleasure to have at our event. Matt was extremely accomodating in every way. His choices were perfect for the atmosphere needed. Our customers and employees enjoyed his performance greatly. We would highly recommend Matt for any event you have planned and will definitely use him again in the future!

- Jennifer E, Tommy Bahama, Riverhead, NY 08/15/12


Matt was awesome from the beginning! A very professional musician who takes time to get to know you before your wedding! Was extremely reliable and thorough. Matt was extremely talented musician as well and was able to take a few of our favorite artists and put together a great set that made our day perfect! Guests came up to me all night asking for Matt's information for their own parties. I would highly suggest using Matt for any event! - Ryan R, Wedding, Massapequa, NY, 08/11/12


Matt was fantastic and helped make our party a huge success!

- Stephanie B, 8/2/12, West Gilgo Beach, NY


Matt was awesome! We needed a musician on short notice, & although he was already booked for the evening, he drove a long way to play my daughter's birthday party that afternoon. To say he was great would be an understatement...played every tune like it was his last, & was able to play almost every request withjout blinking an eye- he's a fantastic performer & a great guy- shared stories with everyone about his travelling days in Europe, etc...would hire him again without hesitation!

- Sean P, Mattituck, NY 07/28/12


Matt was a true professional. Very accommodating and personal with all my guests. The amount of songs he knew and played extremely well were beyond my belief. If I were to ever have another party or anyone ever asks about live entertainment Matt without a dout would be the one I would recommend. Also if you asked anyone at my party they would say the same thing. He made our party and I don't have any negative things to say about Matt!! AWESOME!!!!! - Doreen S, Seaford, NY 07/28/12


I hired Matthew to play at my fathers 60th birthday celebration. I made very specific requests and Matthew was so accommodating...such a thoughtful performer. Usually all my family talks about is the food, but this time it was the music! He is punctual, polite, professional and such a talented musician. Matthew is now my go to for all my music/entertainment needs...he ROCKS! -Elizabeth R, Girasole, NY


This was the second event my family had Matt play at. The first was my 30th birthday a few years back and this time for my dad's 70th. He nailed the music selection and got raves from the guests both times! A standout talent who is willing to meet every request with professionalism and a smile! We look forward to having him at future events! - Carla D, 07/23/12 Oyster Bay, NY


Matt was the hit of the party as usual. We originally tried to have our party on July 7th, but rescheduled solely for the purpose that Matt was already booked for that day and it would NOT have been even remotely the same with out him. He rocked all day/night long... had to be close to 7 hours!!...and took maybe 10 minutes of breaks. He is an awesome talent, a complete professional, and has become a very good friend. He will return again next year for sure!!

- Michael T, 7/14/2012, July 4th Party, Old Tappan, NJ


He is great and really cares about what he does and whether you are happy. Our guests loved him and he helped make our party a success! - Sandy G, 7/7/2012, Cocktail Party, Harrison, NY


We we lucky enough to find Matthew to play during our sweltering hot July wedding in Central Park. I read through Matthew's playlist which included many genres. We made a list, including a few songs not on the list, and Matthew was completely accommodating . Matthew was not only a professional, but a person of warmth & kindness. I loved his gorgeous, artistic wedding march. He does a moving cover "Imagine" and combines "Wonderful World" & "0ver the Rainbow." Our guests were so pleased with the music and Matthew played and sung his heart hot despite the 100 degrees and intense humidity. Must have been tough, but it never showed!

- Julie B, NYC, 7/07/12


Matthew was outstanding! We can't say enough wonderful things about our ceremony and cocktail hour music. Matthew was early and set up and playing before anyone was there. He was very accommodating and responsive. I never had to wait for an answer. He learned songs we requested which was very impressive. My husband would like to have Matthew perform at all of our future events.

- Kerri R, 7/06/12 Wedding, Setauket, NY


Matt was fantastic! Very professional, talented and gives 110%. Extremely passionate and works very hard to ensure that you are completely satisfied. Everyone raved about his performance and I would recommend him to anyone.

- Dawn & Eddie I, Middle Island (MFI), 07/04/12


Matt made my husband's 40th birthday a great success. The crowd loved him and they're still ranting and raving over him. I couldn't be happier and he was worth every penny! I plan on having Matt play for all my future parties!!

- Nicole W, 07/03/12, Celebration, Bloomfield, NJ


Matthew did a beautiful job at my wedding ceremony and helped make it so special. He was so accomodating, out to please, incredibly reliable and attentive. You could always count on him to answer any questions or concerns. A true professional, and very conscientious person. I highly recommend him.

- Carol C, 7/01/12 Wedding Ceremony (Classical Guitar), Smithtown, NY


Awesome!! That is the best word to describe Matthew. This was the 3rd time my husband and I hired him. He played for us last night at my brother in law's 40th birthday party. All of the guests were saying that he made the party. Not only is he a very talented muscian he is also a great guy. I highly recommended Matt to everyone!! - Lauren C, 6/30/2012 Birthday Party (Adults), Long Island, NY


Matthew was incredibly professional and accommodating! Every one of our guests commented on how talented he is and how much they enjoyed his music! He truly made the evening. We would recommend him wholeheartedly.

- Kimberly A, New Canaan, CT 06/24/12


Thanks for making my husband Brian's 40th so memorable and special! You are very talented and we loved every minute of your singing and guitar playing. So many of my family and friends kept asking me, "where did you find this guy?". Everyone had a fun night and enjoyed the music. We will definitly use you in the future! The night went too fast, I wish I could have listened to your music longer! Good luck to you! Thanks again! - Brian & Jane S, 6/23/2012 Celebration, Northport, NY


Matthew was a fanstistic addition to a family event for our first son. We had all of our friends and family compliment the tone he set with his music (he really reads the room and plays the most appropriate songs at the right time!) His professionalism refreshing and we're planning to work with him again for future parties and events! - Amanda M, Jersey City, NJ 05/20/12


Matthew was the most patient and generous guitarist we could have hoped for. He learned our favorite songs to make our ceremony extra special and everyone was impressed at his playing at both the ceremony and the cocktail hour. We loved having him play for us and would definitely do it all over again!

- Omar & Nicole T, NY, 05/19/12


Matt Cutillo is ABSOLUTELY OUTSTANDING!!! After seeing performances at two parties, I reached out to him to request him to play at my wedding. From the first contact, Matt showed nothing but professionalism, warmth and dedication. He learned a somewhat obscure song that was important to my husband and I and he absolutely nailed it in a very short time! My guests made it a point to tell me how amazing he was throughout the ceremony and cocktail hour. I would highly recommend Matt for any type of function, as he has made every event I have seen him perfom at so enjoyable! - Patricia M, 5/4/2012 Wedding Ceremony, Massapequa, NY


It was an absolute pleasure working with Matthew Cutillo from the first moment we spoke. I hired him for my client based on having heard him in the past. He is a total professional, speaks wells, presents himself well, has a great personality and of course is an awesome entertainer! I am an event planner, and I will definitely use him in the future and for my own personal parties coming up. - Leslie K, 5/12/2012 Birthday Party (Adults), Locust Valley, NY

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------- From our initial contact from Matthew to his follow-up email after our event, he was a true professional. His genuine interest in making our event as special as possible made him an absolute pleasure to deal with. We requested a few songs only a few days before our event & he learned & played them to perfection. Matthew is a very talented individual & wonderful human being. It's hard to find a person as kind & considerate as he is. Matthew far exceeded our expectations & we would have given more stars if it was possible. Our guests were talking about him during the entire event & for days after. We highly recommend him & look forward to hiring him again soon!! - Kevin H, 5/5/2012 Christening, Long Island, NY

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------- You were so amazing. You are a very talented young man and I know you are on a wonderful successful path in your career. I loved that some of the guests were dancing while you were playing. All the guests truly commented on your talent. It definitely added to what I wanted to accomplish in this celebration for my son in law. I am sure that you will get some bookings from our party. That is the best thank you there is. - Robin G, 5/5/2012 Birthday Party (Adults), Hewlett, NY

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Great job! - Nicole M, 4/21/2012 Birthday Party (Adults), Long Island, NY

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Matthew's performance at our party was excellent and many of our guests commented on how much they enjoyed his music. He played all of our favorites and more. We will definitely be using him again at our next event. Thank you Matthew! -Paul E, 4/11/2012 Private Party, Quogue, NY

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Matt is incredibly talented and an absolute pleasure. Please book him for your next party! - Krista / Mike F, 3/31/2012 Birthday Party, Bay Shore, NY

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Matthew was a pleasure to work with and very professional. We and our guests thought he was great !! He is very talented with a good selection of music !

- Megan M, 3/24/2012 Birthday Party (Adults), Summit, NJ

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Matt Cutillo is a great musician that sings with his soul and heart. Everybody at the wedding was in awe of how wonderful and personable he was. He played everything we asked and more. From the moment we hired Matt, we knew we had made a great choice. He had great communication throughout, was early to our cocktail hour, and was playing beautifully when we arrived. We could not have been happier. Matt would make a great addition to any wedding or party. Trust me. My wife and I couldn't have been happier. Thank you Matt for being part of the best day of our lives. 10 stars plus. Highly recommended!!!! - Daniel E, 3/16/2012 Wedding, Babylon, NY

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Couldn't have asked for anything more.... Loved Matt

- Alison M, 3/7/2012 Birthday Party @ Treva, West Hartford, CT

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------- As the Clubhouse Manager of a 55 and over community, it can sometimes be difficult to find talent which will appeal to this audience. Matt's performance last night, taking place in our Ballroom, was an absolute success! His genuine passion for his music and audience is clear and he connected with this goup of 70 people in a way I haven't seen before. There was dancing, clapping, singing along, and it was great. Matt spent time talking to all of the guests, taking requests, answering questions, and basically just made himeself available and very approachable. Thank you Matt and the Meadowbrook Pointe looks forward to future performances! - Robin M, 1/20/12 Westbury, NY

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------- AWESOME job by Matthew Cutillo at The Melting Pot in Farmingdale! Our guests love him, our staff loves him and everyone always has a blast. Definitely a fantastic vibe when Matthew is in the restaurant! - Rachel, Farmingdale, NY 1/19/12

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Matthew exceeded my expectations and would recommend him highly. I booked Matthew only a two days before my wife's 40th birthday party at a restaurant. Matthew was extremely professional, entirely open to how the party would go and what music was played. In fact, he learned a number of new songs requested less than 24 hours before the show. In addition, he was able to play an incredible amount of songs that were being requested during the evening. He played an hour longer than he was contracted and was an important part of a highly successful evening. Thank you to Matthew, I'd use him again in a minute! - Gardner H, 1/7/2012 Bridgeport, CT

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Matthew is very passionate about his music and his objective was to make the event so very special. Being a lesbian wedding, he worked diligently on our song list request, which included several female vocalist. Matthew exceeded our expectation in making our marriage very personal and very special. He was very accommodating, respectful and very intuitive of our wants and needs for the day. Words cannot express our gratitude for the surperb performance.

- Pat & Dawn, Farmingdale, NY 01/05/12

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Wow. Matt made our Holiday party the best one yet! He did everything you could ask for - played his heart out, listened to our play and don't-play song requests, and sang NON-STOP. Advice for anyone who needs a singer soloist - BOOK MATT NOW, and stock up on strong coffee - he operates on caffiene! He was as revved up at 2:00am as he was when he started - no signs of slowing down. This guy is amazing! His range of songs is huge and his talent is incredible. Usually, I get positive comments about the filet mignon hors d'oeuvres, the blazing firepit, or the peppermint martinis. This year, all of the raves from my guests were about Matt. - Mike & Tracey T, 12/17/2011 Holiday Party, Woodcliff Lake, NJ

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------- This is the first time our office Xmas party had entertainment and after Matt's performance I don't think we will have a party without him there. This was our best party! Every one of us from top to bottom had an amazing time! He played for 4 hours never taking a break... He satisfied every age group and took a wide variety of requests! The whole office can't wait for the next time we can hear him play!! A definite must hire, you won't regret choosing Matt!!

- Tony G, 12/15/2011 Corporate Event, New York, NY

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Matt was phenomenal. I once again had the pleasure of Matt's perfomance at an annual Christmas party at my home. Matt has performed at this event for several years - 3, 4, or 5 years running. I have lost track. Prior to the party several guests had asked if he would be in attendace as they were looking forward to it. At this point he is now considered a "performing guest" as opposed to a hired performer. As long as he is willing, he will continue to be a mainstay for my event. Every guest commented on what a great ambiance he provided and how much of a special treat it was to hear him perform. His soulful voice and accompanying guitar playing were the perfect touch. - Chris B, 12/10/11 Englewood Cliffs, NJ

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Matthew Cutillo is awesome! We absolutely love having him play at The Melting Pot in Farmingdale. He delivers 110% every time!

- Rachel B, 11/17/2011 Restaurant Event, Farmingdale, NY


- Joan L, 11/13/2011 Christening, Deer Park, NY

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Matthew was great, professional and very accomodating. We received many compilments about Matt and would and will hire him again in the future - Jessica W, 11/11/11 Birthday Party (Adults), Williston Park, NY

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Fantastic Performance Rendition of "Over the Rainbow" off the charts. Will be using him again in the near future. - Timothy B, 10/23/11 Christening, Massapequa, NY


5 Stars !!! Matthew played at our wedding at Bubby's in Brooklyn, NY on 10-15-11 and he was excellent in every way possible. He did such a great job! My guests gave us so many compliments for choosing such a great guitarist. He was extremely professional, granted every request we had, and we were extremely satisfied with his performance. We honestly couldn't have asked for anything more. The sound was perfect, not too loud or soft, and the songs he played for our ceremony were absolutely beautiful. I felt so special walking down the aisle to his music. It was very touching. We strongly recommend him to anyone and everyone ! Enjoy ! - Andrea M, 10/15/11 Wedding Ceremony, Brooklyn, NY

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------- The event Mr. Matthew Cutillo performed at was my parents 50th wedding anniversary celebration. He is a 5 star professional who played both instrumental guitar and accompanied at times by singing selected or recommended songs. When we spoke about the event several times it was ultimately him who offered certain musical selections and his advice further enhanced the event for us all. I would highly recommend Mr. Cutillo. - Theresa T, 10/8/11, Anniversary Party, Oakdale, NY

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Matt was amazing to deal with and exceeded all of our expectations! He was completely accomodating with any and all of our requests, learned new songs for the wedding, and sounded amazing! Plus, he was an absolute pleasure to deal with which is so important on such a stressful day. I would recommend him to anyone for any event!! - Amy V, 10/1/11 Wedding Cocktail Hour, Vernon, NJ

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Super guy and very talented. Matthew was so easy to work with. We highly recommend Matthew. All of our guests raved about Matt. Simply put, he's the best! - Chris P, 9/24/11 Wedding Reception, Blackstone Steakhouse, Melville, NY

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Matthew was beyond 5 Stars! Easy communication with everything, he set up long before the cocktail hour began, and played until the last guests left the room. ALthough my wife and I were only in the room for a few songs, what we heard was excellent. Also, throughout the party, guests were saying how great the music was for the cocktail hour. I have already received requests for Matthew's information that I will be happy to pass along. Matthew's a great talent and kind person, book him and you will not have to worry about a thing!

- Alex C, 9/17/2011 Wedding Cocktail Hour, Lindenhurst, NY

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Matthew performed at my daughters first birthday party. Everyone loved him, both the kids and adults. He arrived early and played the entire time. He did a great job. Prior to the event he was very accessible and receptive to requests. I would definitely hire him again. As a matter of fact, a few of my guests asked him for his info so they could hire him as well!

- Raquel L, 9/17/2011 Birthday Party (Adults), South Orange, NJ

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Matthew played the guitar and sounded amazing. Everyone came up to me to tell me how awesome he was. I would absolutely recommend him to everyone. I hope I can use him in the future. We are so happy with everything he did. THANKS MATT!!! Kim and Chris Horton

- Kim H, 9/16/2011 Wedding, Ocean Beach Fire Island, NY

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------- UNBELIEVABLE His professionalism & personality is only surpassed by musical talent. To see how this man presents himself, look up PERFECTION in Websters. From the first conversation, through every text and call thereafter, Matt was SUPERB. It is not enough to say that if he is available for your event, book him. If not, change your day, he is that SPECIAL. Guests were in AWE and commented on how well he blended into the room. He made each song his own, a true ARTIST. So many still are raving. What a truly WONDERFUL man and spirit. Total JOY to have met and will definitely use again!!!! See you soon...

- Tim M, 9/10/2011 Cocktail Party, Stewart Manor, NY

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------- From the time we booked our cocktail hour with Matthew to the actual day of the wedding, he was AMAZING! His professionalism and talent are beyond incredible. I can not say enough nice things, he was my favorite person to work with throughout the entire wedding process and I was so glad to have him as part of the big day. Matthew was on time (actually early!) and played exactly what we asked him to play. I would recommend Matthew to anyone and everyone! I hope to be able to utilize his incredible talent again soon!

- Lindsey M, 9/10/2011 Wedding Cocktail Hour, Lindenhurst, NY

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Matthew was by far the most responsive vendor you will work with. He is dedicated (will learn to play any song for you), accomodating and just over all a cool guy. He is awesome with the guitar and has a great voice. We had him play for our ceremony and cocktail hour which is about 1.5 hours, but he gets there over 2 hours early to set up and even played music while we were taking pre-ceremony photos and setting things up. You will not regret choosing Matthew.

- George S, 9/4/2011 Wedding Ceremony, Port Washington, NY
