In 1988, a simple 5-line ad in the newspaper was looking for someone who loved music and was not afraid of being in front of large groups of people. After being "volunteered" at every party to "take over the music" and being told countless times that he had a voice for radio (or was that a face!?), Matt (DJ GAZ) decided to answer that ad. Hired on the spot, so began a career that has spanned 20 years and every type of event a disc jockey can work.
Growing up in Mayfield Village in a house jammed daily with music from all tastes and genres, the love of all types of music was imbedded at a very early age and has grown stronger every year since. As a matter of fact, not including family, the only thing stronger than his love of music is an addicting obsession with producing a packed dance floor. Matt likes to meet with clients to get a vision of how they want the night to go and then he acts as a type of 'stage manager' to make that vision come to life, keeping in mind at all times who his 'stars' are. With a personality that's stuck on the fun side of life, his musical taste is summed up in two words: "fun" and "danceable."
Whether you and your guests want to polka all night long or bounce to the latest club jams, DJ GAZ is ready to step up to the mix and give you a night they'll be talking about. A simple meeting is the next step to a night you'll remember forever.
:: CLIENT COMMENTS ::
"Matt was awesome. The guests and I were on the dance floor the majority of the time. The music selection was very good and upbeat. A lot of my friends and family said that was one of the best weddings they were ever at. I thank Matt Gadzak and staff for making our wedding very special and memorable." Jacqueline Vajda Zkiab - April 21, 2012 @ Michaud's Towne & Country
"I have had several people text me the week after the party and say it was the best party they were ever at in their entire life. People make the party; music keeps them moving. Thank you." Thad Vasko, surprise 50th birthday - Jan. 21, 2012 @ Ritz-Carlton
"We were impressed! Matt exceeded our expectations. He was able to mix and play foreign music (at our request) in a language that he is not used to and did it with excellence. I am so happy we have chosen him." Carole Macaron & Chris Contrera - May 21, 2011 @ Medina Country Club
"If any bride is worried about finding a great DJ, they need to book MATT GAZDAK! The music and dancing at our wedding was one thing I was worried about, but Matt handled the music selections wonderfully. He played everything we wanted to have played, and selected songs that had EVERYONE out on the dance floor. I was so pleased with how Matt and his partner handled themselves. They were polite, courteous, and very accommodating to everything we needed." Amanda Zagara - June 4, 2011 @ Crystal Brook Farm
"Excellent doesn't say enough about Matt. He played EXACTLY what we wanted with some unique and creative additions sprinkled in that were totally in line with our style. He was flexible when plans changed (rain!!), friendly with everyone, took appropriate and fun requests, listened to us and kept the dance floor packed all night. I think I was a pretty difficult bride - I wanted a DJ who would be energetic and keep the party going, but without games or too much crowd interaction. Matt aced it - the perfect balance was struck. He even managed to slip in one perfectly timed and hilarious 'OK Elizabeth, I'm getting off the mic now' - everyone cracked up and I loved it. People are still raving about the music. Matt is a class act - a true gentleman and artist." Elizabeth Pitman Gretter - Aug. 14, 2010 @ The Botzum Farmstead
"Jerry Bruno was very easy to work with, from the first phone call throughout the end. Matt was everything and more than we expected in a professional DJ. I would recommend Matt to anyone. He was enjoyable to work with and was absolutely perfect for our wedding. He just fit right in!" Gina Lanner & Michael Garmone - July 31, 2010 @ the Italian American Club
"We just wanted to thank you again for putting on an amazing wedding - everyone loved the music. The dance floor was packed and we got tons of compliments! We had a lot of people say it was the best wedding they've been to, and got countless compliments on the music. We loved it as well, and wanted to thank you for the great time we knew you'd give us! Thanks again for everything! You're the best! Everything turned out perfect!" Sheryl Hein & Rick Grubb - Oct. 24, 2009 @ Toscana Party Center
