Years In The Business: 20
Always the party starter, Matthew Styles began DJing in a Teen Club at the age of 17. While attending college at The University of Tennessee, he joined a fraternity and began DJing all of their house parties and formals. It didn’t take long for other fraternities and sororities to ask him to DJ their formals and special events as well. By the end of his freshman year, DJ Styles was a name requested by many other organizations.
The owner of a new club approached Matthew to DJ his “College Night.” At the beginning of his sophomore year, College Night was an instant success bringing in around 2,000 (give or take) college students. Over the next few years, he was a resident DJ in several clubs around the area and watched as his colleagues began relationships that took to the next level of “Forever After.”
One couple who had been with him from the beginning, asked if he would DJ their wedding. With a huge smile on his face, honored that they would even ask, he accepted. More and more couples who had been with him in the club started requesting him to help them celebrate their “Big Day.”
20 years later, Matthew has DJ’d in over 50 clubs in 8 different states and the Caribbean, been the voice of 3 different radio stations, served as the entertainment for numerous sports events, charity events, formals, and of course weddings. Today, Matthew Styles does over 30 weddings a season and continues to make lots of couples happy tailoring the perfect mix for all ages. He works hard to make every couple’s big day unforgettable.

What Couples Have Said About DJ Matthew
My husband and I couldn’t be happier with Coastal DJ for our wedding. Our DJ, Matthew Styles, was outgoing, friendly, and most importantly, an excellent DJ. Matthew was excellent at reading the crowd and picking the right song for the moment. He set a great mood for the evening, and was largely responsible for the success of our reception.
