There are so many positive things to say about the Matt Stedman Band that we don't even know where to start! Matt was extremely organized and was in constant contact before our event. He was also quick to answer any questions. He went above and beyond and that showed on the day because everything went SO smoothly. We went off reviews and listening to the music on their website (we never heard them live) so we were a little nervous but WE WERE BLOWN AWAY! Matt Stedman Band truly did an AMAZING job from start to finish. We had the guitarist and violinist play at our ceremony and they were incredible! We had the guitarist play for cocktail hour (just perfectly!) and after cocktail hour Matt Stedman turned into our MC and introduced the wedding party and announced when speeches were going to happen. They played music during those little down times (before and after the speeches) which was the perfect touch. We were so excited to hear Matt Stedman live and they did NOT disappoint. They had every guest on the dance floor for the ENTIRE night. Our grandparents (who were unable to dance) refused to leave until the very end because they were having so much fun listening to the band and watching our guests enjoy dancing so much. The band members are all incredibly talented vocally and play an array of instruments. The Matt Stedman Band exceeded all expectations we had for our wedding. Worth every single penny :)
A class act from start to finish, Matt and his band are true professionals. As the groom, I could not have imagined having a more talented group of musicians play my wedding. They are incredibly versatile, which is proven by the fact that they can play everything from hip-hop to classic rock, and they sound perfect. Easy to work with, open to learning songs for your day, and very responsive. I give the Matt Stedman Band my highest recommendation.

Matt Stedman was wonderful to work with. He was very professional and organized which can be very hard to find. He helped walk us through how to keep the party going and how we should coordinate our music. The song list he provided was exactly what we were looking for. We were overly pleased with all of the songs his group could perform. Throughout the wedding planning Matt was always available for questions and was very communicative and responsive to any concerns we had. He ensured we would be taken care of on our big day; and we were! On the day of the wedding Matt was very helpful coordinating with our other vendors. When we arrived he and group was on fire! They had us and our guests dancing till the end of the night. The dance floor was packed. His group exceeded all expectations and hopes we had for our wedding. The music was lively, organized and our guests couldn't stop saying how much fun they were making the night. The talent his group holds is beyond comparison. Hiring Matt and his group was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding. Thank you so much Matt for all of your talent and coordination to make our day perfect. We couldn't be happier with the party you helped make unforgettable.
