Wigan born and bred Matt is a keen sportsman, first and foremost excelling loyally in his chosen and the locally esteemed sports of Rugby League and Rugby Union, but also showing a flair for football, basketball, cricket and athletics. More recently, he fulfils his competitive streak on the squash court.
Surpassing his love for sports however, is and always has been his penchant for performance. He started performing at the tender age of 6, though at this point his spark was hidden behind the stage curtain, as he supported other youngsters suffering the dreaded stage fright.
This same spark was soon to develop into a strong and vibrant flame however, as Matt was to become involved in and appear in a multitude of stage shows over a 10 year time span, travelling the country and taking to the stage in musical theatre, pantomime and showcases at, amongst other notorious venues: The Royal Opera House in Manchester.
Also a qualified teacher, Matt shares his passion for live entertainment and performance with a vibrancy and energy that engenders a similar enthusiasm in even the most reluctant teen.
It is the five year old in his life that really ignites the flame in his heart though, as Matt’s most important and most rewarding role is that which allows him to be the very proud daddy to his beautiful son Lewis, with whom Matt can’t wait to take to the stage one day; Lewis is already proving to be quite the showman!
Never one to forget his home, his roots and his family and friends, Matt is ever grateful for the support he continues to receive from those who encourage his passion and nurture his talent on stage allowing him to live his dream; to pursue, what for him, is the best job in the world.
We recently had the pleasure of Matt singing at our wedding reception. From our initial meeting he totally understood what we did and didn’t want and that showed on the night, his enthusiasm and overall persona made for what was a fantastic night.
In terms of Matt’s performance, wow! He managed to engage with all of our guests (young and old), and maintained a busy, fun dancefloor. Matt had remembered everything we’d asked for in our meeting with him and made our night truly wonderful. Thanks Matt, we will definitely be booking you again!! Armandine and Paul xxx.
Matt truly made our wedding reception incredible! We had great feedback from our guests too. Matt took our requests and schedule and made everything perfect. We couldn’t have asked for anything more, and it couldn’t have been more perfect!! THANK YOU AGAIN!
Paul and Lyndsay Bamber
“Matt hosted my slimming world groups summer ball. My members and I where blown away with Matt’s enthusiasm, hard work, and fabulous singing ability. So much so before the night was over he was booked for our Xmas party!
I was worried about the atmosphere at the ball because I hadn’t sold many tickets, but Matt had everyone up dancing, laughing and having a fabulous night. Thank you Matt.”
