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!
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.

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 guest 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.

Music nerds, stop here! When my fiancé and I were looking for a wedding reception DJ, our only criteria was keeping the dancefloor hot. No games, no gimmicks, no chitchat, just great dance music. Matt delivered impeccable, wide-ranging taste, impressive DJ skills, and consummate professionalism. Matt and I hit it off from our first conversation. My fiancé and I enjoyed trading music ideas with Matt, and decided to give him free reign at the reception. He absolutely nailed it. Truthfully, we’re picky and were expecting a difficult DJ search, but hiring Matt ended up being the easiest decision we made when planning our wedding. Reach out to him and see for yourself!

We hired Tony from Elite Beats as our DJ for our wedding, and we all had so much fun!The dance floor was never empty. We sent him a playlist for the vibe we were going for and requests and he stayed true to that, but also added his own touch and it flowed so well. We had an outdoor ceremony and indoor reception on my parent’s property and they were able to work with us and accommodate perfectly! Several of our guests have commented on how much fun the dance floor was, and we can’t thank Tony enough!
Destinee & Logan
Matt was absolutely wonderful to work with (the reviews on the Knot were all right!). He was communicative, timely, and worked with us around the particular constraints of our venue. We got married on the hottest day of the year and Matt was an absolute champion, still having people dancing all evening even though it was 98* outside! Would highly, highly recommend for weddings! Thank you!
Kayla & Christopher
Hands down the best DJ in the NWA area. We still have guests coming back to us saying the music at our reception was the best they'd experienced at a wedding. Everyone (all 160 guests!) were on the dance floor at one point during our reception. Highly recommend Elite Beats! You can't go wrong.
Lesley & Charles
All I have to say is WOW. My husband and I were quite picky when it came to the music and finding a DJ for our wedding but I believe that Matt completely knocked it out of the park. So many guests came to me saying that our DJ was awesome. He helped move the night along seamlessly and the dance floor was busy all night. 1000/10 would highly recommend!

I recently got married and had the privilege of Tony being our DJ. He was incredible!! He went above and beyond our expectations, keeping the reception very lively and knowing all of the perfect songs to play while also being accommodating to our preferences. He was super easy to get in touch with leading up to the event and very professional, I was able to talk to him about everything I was nervous about and get advice. We couldn’t have asked for a more perfect wedding reception thanks to him. I had so many people come up to me asking about the music choices, mentioning how well they fit. Thank you so so much I would 10000% recommend.
Basin Park Hotel
Matt is an insanely talented DJ. We hired him for our wedding day and couldn't be happier with how the day went! I had made playlists for the vibe I was going for for the ceremony lead up, cocktail hour, and the reception, and Matt added his own touches and absolutely nailed it. The transitions were so smooth and everything flowed so perfectly. Everybody had SO much fun at the reception. I would definitely recommend hiring Matt to DJ your wedding or event. You won't regret it!!
Tara & Sean
Can't say enough good things about our experience with Matt. He did an incredible job blending several genres of music, reading the vibe of the room, and making sure everyone from the newlyweds to the grandparents got to dance to their favorite song. He also did great handling the technology for our first dance which we had set to a video instead of just a song. 10/10, would definitely recommend.

Ty did a great job making our wedding fun and interactive! We made our own reception playlist that he played from, and did a great job feeling out the crowd with songs he chose. He was very responsive from the beginning and kept in touch as the wedding got closer, making sure he knew our wedding timeline. We couldn’t have asked for a better DJ!

Tony did a fantastic job at our wedding. He really understood the type of music we wanted and knew how to get the crowd up and moving. We did not give many guidelines or suggestions at all but he took the ones we gave and really built an amazing playlist that all the guests enjoyed.

Dooley's Chapel on the Lake
Matt was amazing. He ran the music at the ceremony as well as the reception. He was at both locations well ahead of time getting set up and used to the spaces. He took all of our requests seriously, he did a great job of managing the energy in the room and making sure there was music for everyone there to get excited about, and he has a great flair for mixing and transitioning songs. Can’t recommend Elite Beats enough!
Haley & Kiefer
Matt was a EXCELLENT DJ! Our wedding day was truly perfect and we have Matt to thank for a lot of that! He was very organized with the music we gave him for the ceremony, and his music was SPOT ON during the reception. Our people were dancing all night long. He knew how to keep the dance floor going and it was so much fun! Matt took the time to talk to us before the wedding, and was great about answering all of our questions.
I highly recommend Elite Beats for your next event!!

Barn at the Springs
Just wow! We couldn’t have been happier with our choice in DJ. Matt did a wonderful job of communicating with us on all details of ceremony/reception, giving us suggestions when we asked for them, and listening to our wants/needs. The dance floor was packed all night long and multiple people were asking me for his contact info afterwards. I highly recommend having him if you want to provide a great party for your guests!
Logan & Christian
Matt with Elite Beats was awesome! He was so easy to work with and so much fun the night of. Out of all of the vendors I had, the DJ was the one I got the most complements about. People still, a year later, will make comments to me about how much they enjoyed the reception because of the DJ! I would highly recommend them to anyone.
Rachel & Zack
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!
The Melonlight Ballroom
Having Elite Beats as the DJ was the most relaxing and easy going part of wedding planning. From the moment we booked him, until I saw him at the wedding, everything was very smooth. We talked once or twice on the phone about song choices, how we wanted things to run, etc. The music day of was great, and I had lots of compliments aimed in his direction! The dance floor was alive all night with people from my 80 year old grandparents, to my 4 year old nephews! I would recommend him every time, and I'm glad we stumbled across him when we were searching in the beginning. Save your time, and just go ahead and choose him!

Matt is an amazing DJ! He is so good at reading the room and keeping the vibe going strong. He is incredibly easy going and easy to work with. Worth every penny and then some! I already knew from seeing him play shows out at local bars that the music was not something I was going to have to worry about at all at my wedding. He did a wonderful job incorporating our “must have” songs in with current hits and old favorites. Do yourself a favor and hire Matt for your event, you will not regret it.
