Matt was very helpful with the planning process. He played our music choices, and was a great MC. Extremely professional and fun to work with.
Matt was amazing and kept generations of family having a fabulous time! He started playing early and played a mix that appealed to everyone then hit the newer stuff as the night went on. He really made the reception a great party.
Matt went above and beyond our expectations! Even with setting up outside and then having to move inside because of weather and kept the party rocking. He helped with timing and order of things. It made everything go off smoothly!
Matt was the DJ for our August wedding at the NC aquarium and we were so very pleased. He was easy to work with both ahead of time and during the wedding. He honored our requests, checked in with us, and did a great job of reading the crowd.
Matt did an amazing job at our wedding! He really knows how to keep the crowd alive and dancing!! Thank you so much!
I will just lay out the fact which I think will show how great Matt and Johnny are! Our wedding was scheduled for Oct 9th in Kill Devils hill at 5pm. Hurricane Matthew decided to crash the wedding that morning!! 1st - All week while other vendors called to either try to get us to reschedule, or 2 - Tell us flat out that they will not refund money if the place issues a evac, Matt called many times to gather our thinking. To tell me that they will be there on that day, or any day that week we reschedule, and if disaster happens and we just cant get it done, he will send us a full refund. The morning off the wedding (Which was to be in a beach house) although we had no power and some localized flooding - we still were going to go on. As vendor after vendor called to cancel, as family and friends couldnt make it, then the city issues a 7pm Curfew - Matt and Johnny's message was the same "We will be there whenever...". Having secured food and having a house full of people, we decided to go with the party / reception anyway. When I called to ask how long their battery pack would last, they responded with "We got a generator... See you tonight". They both showed up at the house -We hooked the generator up and we had lights and music and had the full reception (With our play list, first dance, etc...) in the middle of the hurricane with no power in the house!). These guys single handily saved the night!
I can't say enough good things about Matt. His services and the music that he played literally MADE our night! All of our guests kept coming up to my husband and I and saying that we had "the best music ever!" Matt did an amazing job of playing crowd favorites while still incorporating our own unique spin on things. He made the reception truly "ours" and really listened when we described our musical "vibe." It was the best mix of music ever and we HIGHLY recommend his services for your future wedding!!!
He was great. He was able to pick up on the crowd and play the right kind of music to keep the party going. Every danced pretty much all night. Guests came up to me afterwards saying how they enjoyed his choice of music and his fun personality as they tried to request songs. Matt has a great personality and is the perfect DJ for people who don't want to write their entire playlist. Trust him, he'll do a great job.
Johnnie did a super job! Music was perfect. He handled everything wonderfully!!
Matt was the perfect addition to our wedding! During the planning process, Matt was always quickly responding to emails and phone calls. He helped us plan all of our music from the ceremony, announcement songs, cocktail hour, dinner, and the reception. We had very specific song requests, and he happily played all of them! There was a thunderstorm in the middle of dinner, and Matt was able to accommodate and keep the party alive. He was open to all of our guests' requests and kept everyone on the dance floor all night long! We could not have been more happy to have such a fun and friendly DJ!
Dancing the Night AwayReviewed on 8/24/2015 Carol O
My husband and I have been to many family and friends wedding recently and never have we seen so many guests on the dance floor dancing for such a long time as at our wedding at the Roanoke Island Aquarium in July 2015. We had about 140 guests at our wedding with a very wide range of ages and the dance floor was packed for the entire evening! We felt bad that we didn’t rent a larger dance floor but we never expected for all of our guests to dance all at once! Even though we have a 12x20 dance floor our guests were dancing next to the floor and by their tables. I had several guests ask me “Who selected all of these songs? They are great! What a variety!” Matt Cooper was the best DJ we have ever seen! He knew exactly what song to play and exactly the right time. Our guests had such an amazing time, several of them told me that our wedding was the best they have ever been to, which I would like to take some create for, but ultimately it was the music selection from Matt that kept the fun going all night long! Thank you Matt for making our wedding a blast!
Matt Cooper is the BEST!Reviewed on 6/02/2015 Ashley G
I could not have been happier with Matt as our wedding DJ! He took our suggestions into account, but mostly played off the feeling of the crowd. I had wanted slow soft music during cocktail hour, but our friends came in from our wedding ceremony ready to party! Matt observed this and adjusted accordingly. Everyone staying in the wedding house with us commented on how wonderful he was the next day. I am not sure I have ever been to a wedding where there wasn't a lull in the energy, but I swear no one sat down once the dance floor was opened. Thanks Matt for helping to make our day so magical!
Awesome DJ!Reviewed on 10/01/2014 Ariel B
Matt was absolutely awesome before and at our wedding. He was great to prepare with us for everything, helped us by providing a spreadsheet for the songs that we needed for each event. He even reminded me about the 'do not play' list which I completely forgot about. I was worried about the volume of the music since we got married on the beach but I could hear it over the ocean and it was amazing. Everyone at the wedding raved about the variation of music that was played and how nice Matt was when people asked for songs. I was also really happy that the songs were the edited versions for my family, especially my grandparents.
Matt was greatReviewed on 6/04/2014
We highly recommend Matt Cooper for wedding DJ services. He was willing to play all our requests (even obscure ones) but knew perfectly how to read the crowd and play the hits. He was professional and fun and made sure everyone had a great time. You will not regret booking Matt.
Amazing DJ!Reviewed on 10/23/2013
We cannot express our gratitude more to Matt from OBX Music Masters for the wonderful job he did as the DJ at our wedding. He greatly exceeded our expectations and fulfilled all of our requests perfectly! Matt was not only extremely professional, but easy to work with and made the planning process stress-free. He was always just an email away when we had questions or wanted to change some things up. He played an awesome array of music and had everyone dancing the night away. We received so many compliments regarding the great music and so many of our guests commented on how much fun they had dancing. We cannot thank Matt enough and highly recommend him and OBX Music Masters to anyone needing a DJ for a wedding or event!!! Sincerely, Jamie & Will Hobgood
Thanks, Matt!Reviewed on 10/15/2013 Corie C
Matt was fantastic! Music is vital to the success of a wedding, particularly the reception, and Outer Banks Music Masters did not disappoint! My now husband and I planned the entire wedding from MD so doing this long distance can really add stress but working with Matt was easy and took that worry off my plate. We came down earlier this year to conduct interviews and Matt came out and met with us. He was very laid back which was nice and he wasn't trying to sell himself. We appreciated that and hired him. His prices were very reasonable compared to other local DJs as well. He really understood what pieces of that day were most important to us and made sure to get them right by working closely with us. He offered suggestions and ideas. He also worked to make sure all was in order before the big day. We talked the week of the big day to run through the important details of the wedding day and he even called the day before the wedding to make sure nothing had changed! I really appreciated that extra step and it saved me a call because something had changed! The dance floor was never empty and all we have heard was how much fun our wedding was. I know Matt had a lot to do with that and we are so grateful for it. Thanks for making our day stress-free and so much fun for us and our guests!
Outer Banks Music Masters will be the best and easiest decision you will makeReviewed on 9/08/2013 Laural K
Let me start by saying we planned this wedding in 5 months from 500 miles away, while I (bride) had to take my PhD candidacy exam 2 weeks for the big wedding day. Obviously, I had so many things to stress over in the past 5 months but choosing Matt from OBX Music Masters was not one of them. I was on the way to get my nails done two days before and he called me just to check in! He made himself readily available for our event and was so easy to work with! He edited our first dance song perfectly and easily adjusted to timeline changes that day like the pro he is! He is sincere and not the type that steals the show - no one noticed "him" but everyone kept telling us what a wonderful DJ we have! We cannot be more thankful. Brides that are planning a wedding in OBX -especially destination type and can't go beforehand- Choose Matt and you will not regret it for a second. I hope I can comfort you in this review- just book him, he will be the best and easiest decision you will make. Everyone notices mistakes but we can truly say that Matt did not make ANY. He was seamless in every transition that day and triple checked wedding party pronounciations beforehand. We had dancing on the outdoor deck and he rocked it the whole evening even with a few passing rain showers! He said to me "What rain!?" with a smile on his face!! He played every single song we wanted AND I felt like he was reading my mind on all the other song choices throughout the night. He kept everyone on the dance floor and played perfect choices during dinner, cocktail hour and at our ceremony. Hands down, best DJ ever!! We could not be more thankful or happy. THANK YOU MATT!
Great Music!Reviewed on 8/01/2013 Anne M
Matt Cooper at Outer Banks Music Masters was a wonderful DJ for our wedding! He played all the music that we suggested and more! Based on who was on the dance floor, he would develop a play list to keep the guests smiling! Matt did a great job with developing a fun playlist for all of our guests and us! Thank you!
INCREDIBLE SERVICE, FLEXIBLE, AND FRIENDLYReviewed on 6/14/2013 Jody C
Matt Cooper was amazing from beginning to end. He was always willing to talk to you about whatever you are looking for. He did some pretty unique things for us- we had our first dance which transitioned into Gangnam Style for the rest of the bridal party. He was able to put that together for us. We also wanted the guests to feel special so we picked several of their wedding songs and played them for the anniversary dance. He was able to find all of them and do that for us. He works with you and makes it exactly what you want. Incredible job. HIGHLY RECOMMEND Matt Cooper.
Perfect musicReviewed on 5/06/2013 Crystal P
Worked with Matt for ceremony and reception music. He adhered to all of my requests for music to be played and some 'forbiddens' (ex: Macarena). Guests made some requests which he played or cleared with myself or groom if he was uncertain. So many guests danced and I felt like he really had a handle on the vibe of the crowd! Excellent!
Beach House WeddingReviewed on 11/18/2012 Katie T
We really enjoyed having Matt as our DJ. He was easy to work with and during the day of our wedding was the best of all our vendors because he was very helpful, allow us to make last minute changes and he was super respectful to myself and my dad. His music selections were awesome, he played exactly what we wanted and worked with our guests to play requests they asked for during the night. Thank you Matt for making our day special. Katie

Awesome DJReviewed on 10/07/2012 Rebecca G
Matt with Outer BanksMusic Masters was great to work with. We originally met at the Wedding Expo and I loved the way he was able to adjust the music to the crowd in the room! He was able to get the party started and keep it going all night and even helped out with a change of plans due to weather!! Very well priced as well1!
Couldn't Stop DancingReviewed on 6/07/2012 Stacy D
We were married on May 12, 2012 and were lucky enough to have Matt Cooper as our DJ. Matt met with us in March while we were in town, and asked a ton of great questions to get a sense of what type of music would work best for our wedding. We couldn’t have been happier with the music he selected. As the bride, I blame him for not letting me mingle with our guests because I could NOT tear myself off the dance floor….but I guess that’s a good problem to have. We had guests on the dance floor at the beginning of dinner, which you know is the sign of a great DJ. We gave him a few “must plays” for the evening, and he played every one of them. He was also very flexible with the timeline of events, especially when we told him that there would be a few extra speeches that night. We were making decisions on certain special songs up until the day before, and he handled it like a pro. He even edited our entrance song for us, so that it was only instrumental. Most of all, we really appreciated that Matt wasn’t the type of DJ that had to be the star of the show, and is genuinely a nice guy. He was great to work with and we would highly recommend him for anyone planning a wedding or special event.
MADE the party!Reviewed on 10/12/2011 Toni C
Matt was GREAT at our wedding; we had all ages and he had absolutely everyone on the dance floor ALL NIGHT. He was super accommodating, especially when the rain delayed us a bit. He made sure to hit all of our must-plays and was very in tune to what was keeping people happy and dancing! Exactly what we wanted and we would highly recommend him to anyone! He even met with us earlier in the week to confirm where he would be, discuss our schedule and all the details- this made me so much more comfortable for the Big Day.
