    "Great music Great people Great night! Couldn't be more professional can't wait for another excuse to book Matthew Riley, an absolute pleasure to work with."
    Corporate Event Musician
    "Matthew Riley played at my wife's 50th birthday party at our home on Saturday. She loved it and feedback from all the guests was extremely positive. He even managed a duet with our daughter which made her day as well. Would have no hesitation in booking him again as it was a thoroughly enjoyable evening. Thanks!"
    Live Party Musician
    "Matthew Riley's song choices and delivery were excellent and in keeping with how we wished the day to go ahead. He helped create a very relaxed feel to our tipi wedding whilst people were arriving and having their welcome drinks and canapés. Would highly recommend to others. 10/10. Thanks!"
    Wedding Guitarist and Vocalist
    "Matthew Riley was so accommodating, even at such late notice. He had ideas of what would work best, though insistent that it was our choice! He was super friendly and willing to help out with the room preparations over and above his own apparatus! He could read the room and knew when to take a break and when to get everyone moving. His entertainment made the party! I would highly recommend him!"
    Party Guitarist Review
    "Absolutely fantastic! The list of songs he gave us to choose from was extensive and varied in genres. The guests at our wedding were so impressed by Matthew Riley's set. He was professional and he created a relaxed and up lifting environment which is exactly what we wanted! And to top it off he created a short video of his time with us at the wedding, which has had many of our family members and friends in tears. Can't thank him or recommend him enough! Thanks!"
    Wedding Guitarist Review
    "I hired Matthew Riley as a surprise for an hour for my friends Hen Party and he was brilliant! There was only ten of us but within five minutes of playing he had us all up and dancing. He was very professional with his correspondence but flexible enough on the evening to accommodate any requests we had. The bride to be turned up fashionably late but he didn't complain or cut his set short. I would definitely recommend him for anybody looking for a musician for any event! Thank you for making it a great night for everybody!"
