Matt was the DJ for our wedding ceremony, dinner, and dancing. He was absolutely phenomenal. We got married a year ago, and we still have friends asking who our DJ was. We had a few special requests, and he made everything seamless. We danced for hours, and I'm not sure he ever took a break! He took request after request from our friends and family. The way he transitioned from song to song was so smooth that it was hard to leave the dance floor! We recommend him any chance we get. If he plays at your event, please invite us!
Thanks again for a really fun and memorable dance floor.

I would consider myself the worst type of client: the kind who gave hardly any specifications and had no prior experience with DJ's, yet expected Matt to give the absolute best Grammy-worthy music experience of my freshly-married life. Matt met amazingly every single expectation had with hiring a DJ. Now we all hope that our guests will appreciate the enormous amounts of blood, sweat, and personal family feuds/tears involved to use the right ivory candles, selecting the moistest cake, and hosting in the most swanky yet unique setting (aka every little single detail), but after the wedding the most common comment we heard BY FAR was, "that DJ was so, so good" or "who was your DJ?" Let me advise from personal experience that the music is one of the most overwhelmingly important decisions for your event. Matt was responsive and sensitive to every mood in the room. There wasn't a single awkward moment because of his finesse and graceful transitions. And when the old folks grew tired and meandered home and it was time to get down, he threw those beats out like a rowdy house party (at my request, of course). Not to mention he was incredibly gracious with my very bossy and excitable friends. Matt is 3000% worth the investment; he is supremely professional yet flexible and calm. And in all seriousness he is just incredibly good at what he does. If I ever host another event I will not even think about another DJ. Do yourself a favor a book him. It will be the least stressful and most rewarding thing you do.

My husband and I couldn't be happier choosing to use Matt with Elite Beats as our wedding DJ! We had to reschedule our wedding to a later date due to COVID, and Elite Beats willingly worked with us regardless of the last minute decision to do so. Communication was great leading up to our wedding date, and Matt did an awesome job at keeping our guests entertained throughout the reception! Would definitely recommend choosing Elite Beats for your wedding or event!
- Kenzie W (Fayetteville, Arkansas)
We had Matt from Elite Beats at our wedding and they did a fantastic job! The music played all night fit exactly what we wanted and what the vibe was. We didn't want most of the typical "get on the dance floor" line dances or group dances so Matt did an amazing job at keeping everyone on the dance floor and entertained without them! It was a magical night for many reasons, but the music was a huge part of it. Thank you so much!! P.S. Amazing transitions from song to song by the way! My husband and I are still talking about them and its over a week past!
- Sarah F (Eureka Springs, Arkansas)
Tony was awesome! He did everything that was asked of him and he was very professional. He did a great job at having the music ready and working for the ceremony and was able to make a move after the ceremony and setup in a new location by the dance floor. He played all the music we requested and also played the right music to get everyone dancing. I had a lot of guests comment on the quality of sound and the great verity that was played!
- Josh B (Des Moines, IA)
When I was planning my wedding, one of the things I dreaded the most was hiring a DJ. I had the perfect storm of ultra specific music demands for the ceremony and no idea what I wanted to play for the reception. Thank goodness I hired Matt. He was willing to work with me to create custom music for the ceremony and knew just which crowd pleasers to play for the reception. He kept the party going enough to get even our more introverted family and friends dancing. Months later, everyone is still telling me about what a great time they had. I'm glad I hired him.
- Jordan S (Fairborn, Ohio)
We hired Tony for our salon grand opening party and couldn’t be more pleased. Everything went right along with schedule and his musical selection was top notch. We appreciate having such a wonderful talent for our business events and look forward to using him again!
- Terra Earls-Wilkison, Owner, Salon Five Zero Four (Fort Smith, Arkansas)
Matt was so quick to respond to any questions or concerns I had pre-wedding. I knew I wouldn't have to worry at all about music on my wedding day, and I didn't! He did a great job reading the room and playing songs that got people onto the dance floor. Everyone had so much fun and a big part of it was thanks to him!
- Suzanne H ( Fayetteville, Arkansas)
Matt was phenomenal at my daughters wedding! The music was upbeat, he took requests and was very interactive with the guests! He made everyone want to be out on the dance floor. A fun time was had by all ages! Very personal, professional and flexible. We needed some background music before the reception and did not realize it. He was more than happy to accommodate! Thanks again Matt!
- Rachel Chancellor (Springdale, Arkansas)
Tony is a top notch DJ and I have used him a number of times over the years for events with wonderful success. He has excellent skills and some of the best professional equipment in the area to ensure great quality sound. A+!
- Max Rodriguez, Director of Business Development, Guardian Payment Systems (Fort Smith, Arkansas)
I have to say Matt was the most amazing DJ we could have chosen for our wedding! He provided the music for our reception which included dinner, drinks, and dancing. He also worked with our budget to help us achieve everything we wanted to accomplish and has a professional and flawless work ethic. My husband and I have very diverse music preferences and Matt pulled it all together and helped us have the magical moments we had hoped for. Matt also did all the announcing throughout the night and made sure there were no awkward quiet moments during the evening. We received so many compliments on Matt's wonderful personality and his ability to fill our guests special requests, no matter how eccentric they were:) Thanks to Matt the party and the dancing lasted all night long!
- Doreen K (Fayetteville, Arkansas)
We booked Matt for our wedding reception this past August. We had a 1920's theme and Matt was able to provide great tracks to supplement our requests to make our wedding perfect. We danced for hours and it was just the right tempo for everyone who was attending. Matt really pays attention to the groove of the crowd and was able to get a lot of people out on the dance floor and have a great time. I recommend him for any type of event since he is so good at what he does, he can adapt to any situation.

Look, if you're searching for a wedding DJ, party DJ, or just someone to rock your event, look no further than Elite Beats NWA. These guys are the absolute real deal. Matt and Tony are both top notch DJ's who can taylor their sets to fit any occasion. When I asked my now wife to marry me, literally one of the first people I texted was Matt. I knew when we started planning our wedding that I wanted him to DJ. So much so that I booked him 10 months in advance because I know how in demand he can be! Let me tell you, we did not regret our decision. Matt was professional, punctual, and worked seamlessly with our wedding planner to make our reception a blast. Matt and Tony both can read a crowd and make the music fit the atmosphere – not the other way around. Again, Matt and Tony are top notch DJ’s as well super good dudes. You CANNOT go wrong choosing either of them, or both to DJ your event!
- Rick Mcgraw (Sonora, Arkansas)
We loved having Matt at our wedding! He played the exact music that I requested during dinner and gave his own spin on our music for dancing. Everyone was dancing until literally the last minute of the wedding. I could not have asked for a better DJ.
- Amanda M (Bentonville, Arkansas)
I want to express how amazing job Matt did for our wedding ceremony and reception. He arrived on time to our venue which was a remote area in NWA. He was able to come in on Friday to set up and rehearse with us. He did such a great job in picking music for everybody to dance to during the reception. Thank you for making our wedding perfect!
- Abby R (Fayetteville, Arkansas)
Tony was an absolutely incredible DJ. We gave him a set playlist for certain times during our wedding, but other then that we just gave him an idea of what we wanted and he was able to create just the most perfect playlist and atmosphere out of it. We had so many guests come up to us and tell us how good Tony was and we couldn’t agree more. We were so incredibly thankful for him and his ability to DJ and MC which made our wedding that much better.
- Alex H (Siloam Springs, Arkansas)
We found Elite Beats on The Knot and decided to go with them for our wedding based on the positive reviews and professionalism. Our main point of contact was Matt and we were so impressed with his quick responses to emails and attention to detail. Our DJ was Tony and although our first/only meeting with him was about a week before our wedding, we felt like we were in good hands after having a phone call with him to go over our song list/music preferences. Tony arrived very early on the day of our wedding to set up and to be sure he had plenty of time in case any problems arose. He executed all of our song choices as planned and the reception music was AWESOME! My husband and I, along with all of the guests, absolutely loved it. Him and Matt were great to work with. If you’re between Elite Beats and another DJ, go with Elite Beats!
- Anabel B (Centerton, Arkansas)
Matt was great! Super easy to work with, listened to what we wanted, professional, and kept the party going strong with awesome music! We even had some wedding crashers who just heard the soundtrack and wanted to dance haha. Definitely recommend.
- Danny Baskins (Fayetteville, Arkansas)
Tony was absolutely amazing!!! He was so fun during the reception and all of our guests loved his music!!! He really knows what he is doing. Very easy to communicate with and did everything we wanted and more!
- Tela H (Fayetteville, Arkansas)
I didn’t give Matt much direction when it came to our musical tastes or even what our reception flow would be like. He simply executed amazingly. Everyone could not get over how smoothly every song transitioned-it was the perfect backdrop to an already excellent night. Do not hesitate booking him for your next party!! He will not disappoint.
- Becky Schwemmer (Eureka Springs, Arkansas)
|Matt was incredible! I would definitely recommend him and his team for any wedding. Matt was super easy to work with. He gave us the exact vibe we were looking for and never had that awkward lull of a song that people just aren't that into. It was perfect! Had the best time dancing at our wedding because of Elite Beats.|
- Betsty (Centerton, Arkansas)
Matt did such an amazing job throughout the wedding. The ceremony music, cocktail hour, and reception all went perfectly. He had the perfect amount of energy during the reception. He commented and announced when things were happening, but was able to keep the party going with just the music! We were so thankful to have it.
- Samantha Harris (Branson, Missouri)
Matt was the DJ for our November 10th Wedding, and we could not have been happier! Very easy to work and communicate with, and he executed everything flawlessly - including an unplanned first dance! We really appreciate that he accommodated our requests for certain songs at certain time-points, and was very flexible. Being avid concert-goers, my new hubby and I also really enjoyed the lighting and light show that accompanied the music. Thank you Matt for helping to make our night absolutely perfect! You definitely can't go wrong with Elite Beats!!
- Christina W (Eureka Springs, Arkansas)
Tony was our DJ from this amazing company! It was easy to make a playlist and all of our dances went perfectly! Our guests were on the dance floor aalllll night long. Highly highly recommend
- Sydney S (Branson, Missouri)
Great service! Matt was very tentative to our requests! We requested he stay late and he kept the party going until 3am! He also drove over an hour to our wedding venue. Nothing but good things to say about this vendor.
- Emily Durkee (Magazine, Arkansas)
Matt did a fantastic job at our ceremony as well as our reception. Everyone was up and dancing late into the night!
- Ashley B (Fayetteville, Arkansas)
Matthew worked with my budget and was very helpful. He supplied microphones for the ceremony and lights and music for the reception. Everyone loved the music, and he even played a special song for me and my husband to dance to at the end by ourselves while everyone was going outside to get ready for sparklers. It was so sweet! I definitely recommend Elite Beats!
- Kayla G (Springdale, Arkansas)
Elite Beats took care of everything for us. They showed up on time and were sensitive to play the music we requested while keeping the beat going at our reception. If you need a DJ, we highly recommend them!
