Matt Murtha grew up in Tyler, Texas – the Rose Capital of the World. He attended Robert E. Lee High School and then Tyler Junior College, before moving to Dallas to pursue opportunities to perform. Glenn Roush discovered Matt while he was waiting tables and bartending at Pappadeaux. I mean how many times does a DJ company find a trained actor who was once a certified Zumba instructor? Add his good looks and piercing blue eyes and Matt has quickly become a bridesmaid’s favorite.
Matt joined LeForce Entertainment as a DJ assistant and photobooth attendant. The first time Matt got on the dance floor while assisting Ed Petty and taught the wedding guests how to ‘Wobble,’ we knew he was destined to become a DJ. Matt loves all styles of music, is incredibly well spoken, and has an infectious energy. Setup a time to interview Matt for your event and you’ll see why Matt is quickly becoming one of LeForce’s most popular MCs and DJs.
What’s your favorite part of being a DJ?
I am all about making sure that people have a great experience whether it be a school dance or a wedding. I love that I get to share in creating memories with my clients. It’s very rewarding to see a bride and groom post about their wedding the next day and how much fun it is to say “I was there!”. I want people to enjoy every second of their party and literally dance the night away!
What’s your best attribute?
My energy and charisma. I try to keep things positive and a fun atmosphere with everyone I come in contact with.
What’s your favorite sport(s)?
Football and Soccer. Steelers (got it from my dad’s side) and I mainly just enjoy watching soccer from any team.
“We had Matt Murtha for our wedding this past weekend and he helped make our day awesome! He was so easy to work with, relaxed and always understanding. I knew immediately he would be the person to work with. He helped so much with making everything flow and helping me with music ideas. Always responsive and helped us pull off an awesome wedding! We would recommend him again! Thanks Matt!!!”

“We highly would recommend LeForce for any event. We hired Matt for our New Year’s Eve wedding and he was absolutely AMAZING. Being a bride, and a wedding planner is not easy for many vendors and he handled it so well. He used all of our specific songs, kept the party alive and was SO attentive to us during our wedding. We absolutely loved him!!!!!”
“Matt was UNBELIEVABLE!!!! He did our ceremony and reception music and it was perfect. He was super easy to work with (even Skyped with us because our schedules weren’t matching up) and very professional! I didnt have a single worry with him. There were even a few time I saw him on the dance floor teaching dances from the Wobble to the Cotton Eyed Joe.”
“Matt Murtha was our wedding DJ and handled all of the uplighting/string cafe lights at our reception. He was extremely helpful especially at our first meeting, walking us through the whole process and answering any questions we had. He was quick to respond to every email and made sure we had the versions of songs we wanted to hear. He did a fantastic job at our wedding and everyone had a blast! He kept the party going and people on the dance floor which is exactly what we wanted. Thank you Matt!! Highly recommend him to anyone looking for a fun and professional DJ!”
