By | Blog, Spotlights

EBE’s Matt Ostroff:

Entertainment Representative,

Event Emcee & DJ

 

EBE is made up of a myriad of people and personalities. Throughout this series of EBE Spotlights, we’re looking past the job title and learning more about what makes our team tick. We were able to sit down with Matt Ostroff this week, one of EBE’s Entertainment Representatives & Event MC & DJ.

Matt is one of EBE’s six Entertainment Representatives. His drive and knowledge base are obvious to anyone who meets him, and he can have a conversation with just about anyone. Matt is extremely passionate about delivering an amazing experience to each and every client, which makes him an integral part of our team.

At the young age of 13, Matt and his brother Ben (who is also a part of the EBE Team!) started DJing parties. They called their company “Music and More”, and they worked independently for about 5 years. When Matt was in high school, he was hired as a DJ at Purple Haze Entertainment, and worked his way up the ladder as their youngest DJ. After a few years, he joined with Eddie Bruce Entertainment to eventually become one of EBE’s top-selling Wedding Emcees.

We found an old promo-reel of Matt DJing in 1986 and love it… check it out!
