Matt Waller

Hailing from Virginia, Matt has been playing music professionally since the age of 18. With thousands of live performances and over a hundred weddings performed to date, Matt is indeed one of the premier live musicians in the Washington DC Metro Area. Using a pedal called a looper, Matt records live renditions of cover songs that sound like full bands, creating all sounds from his guitar and effects pedals. Your guest will do a double-take when they realize that the sounds, that they are hearing are coming from one person, and those sounds are all created live! Matt stays in demand thanks in part to his diversity, his professionalism, and his kind, friendly spirit. Matt can play virtually any style of music, and will keep your guests entertained for the duration of your event. While still playing solo gigs, Matt also performs vocals and guitar in a brand new wedding & corporate party band called We The People!

“Outside of The Box” Entertainment

Matt Waller was the highlight of our wedding. His music is unlike any normal live performance and goes beyond the typical “wedding band.” I literally had at LEAST 30 separate people come up to me and ask for his contact information. When anyone brings up our wedding today, 4 months later, the music is the first thing that is talked about. He played all of our favorite music, which ranges from classical to rap…some of songs I like better performed by him than the original artist. It was so great that he also DJ’d some songs that just can’t be duplicated, and also emceed the entire event. He was excellent and easy to work with, and super affordable. We will be trying to hire Matt for every event we plan in the foreseeable future!

Leave Your Guests Wowed

If your looking for the right person for you special day look no further! We are so happy we chose Matt. Matt made our wedding day absolutely amazing. He was the perfect mix between live performance and DJ. For us we didn’t want to hear just the same old songs played on the radio and Matt has such a way with putting a different spin on songs we love (request remix to ignition and juicy you won’t be disappointed…seriously). My venue coordinator even asked how I discovered Matt she was so impressed! We always love going to his shows near by to see him!

A Night to Remember

“We could not have been more happy with Matt Waller’s performances at our daughter’s outdoor wedding at East Lynn Farm. I’m fact my friends can’t stop talking about him! He played his guitar and sang during the ceremony and even learned a new song for her! He then performed during the cocktail hour, during dinner service and finally served as DJ! He was awesome and we highly recommend him!”

A Remarkable Experience

To say Matt is the life of the party is an understatement! Every guest at our wedding expressed how Matt “brought the fire” and really ensured that everyone had the best time. He seamlessly transitioned from playing music at the ceremony to the cocktail hour to the reception, which were in 3 different locations at the venue. He really went above and beyond to ensure that everything was perfect. We couldn’t have imagined celebrating our big day without Matt.

Confidence in Your Music

“We’re so glad we ran into Matt at our friend’s birthday celebration — we enjoyed his performance so much, we booked him for our wedding and my mom’s retirement party!! At our wedding, we received tons of great feedback on his live performance during cocktail hour and into the beginning of the dinner reception. When he switched over to DJ duties, our guests enjoyed dancing to everything including the Cupid Shuffle, Cha Cha Slide, romantic slow songs, and even break dancing! Matt was thoughtful, friendly and professional throughout the process, making everything easy and stress-free for us. Book him, you won’t be disappointed!”

Thank you, Matt – you’re the best!

Matt played at our small, intimate wedding recently and I cannot recommend him enough!

We first heard him playing at Bull Run Winery and HAD to book him for our wedding (a year in advance, he’s that good we couldn’t take a chance on having our date booked so we jumped on it!)

Every guest at our wedding couldn’t stop saying how great and talented Matt is. He knows how to read the crowd and made our wedding SO fun for everyone!
