Matt Nelson Trio
We had the trio plus one play for an afternoon wedding reception. We were very pleased. All of the logistics were handled smoothly and professionally and the music was just what we wanted. We would recommend the group without hesitation.

I was positively stunned at the level of talent of the Matt Nelson Trio! I got so many compliments on the band and how classy and elegant they made the reception. They played a wide variety of songs that appealed to many different people and they were able to keep it lively when appropriate and low key when appropriate. I had swing dancing friends, Latin dancing friends, and people who just liked to ballroom dance or sway back and forth, and EVERYONE was happy with the music! Matt Nelson Trio made me look like a very smart, hip, and savvy bride!
--Rebecca P.

Geneva, IL

From start to finish, this was the most professional group of performers I have had the pleasure of working with. I had absolutely no issues whatsoever. The quality of their performance was outstanding, and my guests complemented me numerous times on how great they were. I would recommend them to anyone, and would definitely choose them again for my next party.
