Matt Martindale has been a professional Colorado Wedding DJ & MC (Master of Ceremonies) since 1989 performing at weddings, receptions and even high end corporate events (by referral) all across Colorado. In addition to his practical experience of PERSONALLY performing at OVER 1,315+ ceremonies and wedding receptions since 1989, he has accumulated an extensive entertainment background including education and formal training in: audio production; sound engineering; lighting and design; color theory; improv comedy; corporate entertainment; voice over artistry; professional M/C skills; interactive entertainment and speaking; and as an illusionist / magician.
As an award winning Multi-System Operator, and voted “Best Wedding & Party DJ” for 3 consecutive years, he sold that extremely successful Northern Colorado DJ company in 2001. In 2007, after extensive planning, Matt re-emerged onto the Colorado wedding landscape once again as Colorado’s most requested MC/DJ for weddings and receptions with his new DJ entertainment company: Amore’ DJ Entertainment.
And so, the birth of Amore’ DJ Entertainment.
Matt is widely known in the local wedding industry as the “EXPERT WEDDING MC & DJ,” and nationally referred by colleagues and other local wedding professionals as the “Wedding-Idea-Machine.” He continues to lead the wedding entertainment industry with fresh, new and innovative wedding ideas. Matt is a highly sought after author, professional speaker, seminar leader and business consultant in the area of wedding MC/DJ training and development to some of America’s top wedding MC/DJ Entertainers. He has even been a three time featured Mobile Beat national DJ convention speaker and has published the first in a five book series entitled “The Award Winning DJ Series.” He is also co-author of the new professional training program called “Voice Personality” that is sweeping the country.
Matt also serves as Chief Entertainment Officer (CEO) for a sister company, Fun For Business, Inc., America’s choice for customized, interactive seminars, TEAM Building Games and full event planning, production and consultation for prestigious corporate clients.
As the success of Amore’ DJ Entertainment continues to grow, and the national recognition began with our first “Bride’s Choice Award in 2011” by Wedding Wire for being recognized among the top 5 percent of all wedding professionals nationally. The consistency continued, and Amore’ DJ Entertainment also won it again in 2012, 2013, 2014; in addition to several other awards and recognitions. In 2011, Matt began to see the huge deficiency in quality wedding lighting and décor for newlyweds to complete their wedding vision. Let alone, lighting done with an understanding of wedding color theory or an artistic eye beyond just a few cheap pink, purple or turquoise LED uplights thrown in the corner like other DJs do.) Matt, also an artist, is always thinking, always creating, always improving, always innovating new ways to do things. An artist is “someone who shows exceptional creativity or skill through aesthetic or conceptual means.” Given this basic definition, then what is “creativity” and why are artists are able to access and use it more than others? Creativity has been described as “a novel combination of two ideas, that seem improbable or unusual – the ability to create a being or form out of nothing.” Matt has the unique gift of effortlessly accessing both the right side of his brain (to control creative thinking, perception, spotting patterns, imagination and visualization) as well as seamlessly float to the left side of his brain (analytic, language orientated, liner and objective) whenever needed. The ability to do this is uniquely useful in every aspect of planning, preparing and producing a wedding when he uses the right side to create, think and innovate fresh and new ideas, and then using the left side to organize meticulous details, effortlessly assemble, then coordinate all the moving parts like no other wedding MC/DJ in Colorado. Amore’ DJ Entertainment continues to be a leader in the Colorado wedding industry. Matt began to ponder how to incorporate more into the visual/theatrical aspect for weddings to better enhance a wedding celebration.
So, in 2011, Matt created a division of Amore’ DJ Entertainment called Amore’ Lighting & Décor that compliments the already excellent MC/DJ services offered for newlyweds to complete the visual acuity of their wedding vision with imaginative design and technical implementation .
Adding to the fun, in 2013, Matt created a third division of Amore’ DJ Entertainment called Amore’ Interactive Photo Booth that is radically different than the traditional photo booth. The Amore’ Interactive Photo Booth is guaranteed to make your wedding unforgettable specifically designed to unite guests with fun, hilarious moments using the group photo booth; green screen or step & repeat.
Matt loves to learn. He is a veracious reader and is always reading or listening to something, somewhere! He often consumes about two books per week, but still manages to stay on top of all the new wedding trends by personally attending the national WeddingMBA conference every year for three full days packed with intensive wedding education and professional development. While there, he sets specific appointments to network and chat with some of the nation’s leading wedding experts, talking first hand to industry leaders like Andy Ebon, Sasha Souza, Peter Merry, Martha Stewart Weddings and more. Matt also attends at least one major MC/DJ national conference every year, and regularly networks, consults, teaches and mentors other Colorado DJs. Matt is always seeking out industry specific workshops, seminars and formal education on a variety of interdisciplinary subjects that relate to the wedding industry (ie. voice personality; improv comedy at the local university, etc.) In fact, Matt was recently only 1 of 32 attendees selected for the nation’s first Lighting Symposium. He continues (and will always) continue to strive to be the hardest working, most informed, most educated, most knowledgeable, most experienced, most creative, most organized and most fun wedding MC/DJ company in Colorado!
Matt was born and raised in Colorado. Matt is married to his wonderful wife Tami since 1995. Together, they have three very active sons and a daughter. Matt is always thinking, always creating, always innovating – something. He LOVES weddings (really), enjoys all styles of music, writing, performing comedy, painting, creating art (or just about anything actually) and playing together as a family.
