Hi, I'm Matt Plessner, Owner of Solid Sound Music. I would like to tell you a little about myself and to also personally thank you for expressing interest in the company.
I have loved music all my life. I have played guitar since I was 10, have written songs since I was 14, and have spent 28 years collecting and absorbing music of all kinds!
I graduated from Principia College with a degree in Mass Communication with a focus in broadcasting. After receiving my degree, I moved to St. Louis to attend The Broadcast Center, one of the leading radio training schools in the country. I spent a little over a year there doing hands-on studies of all aspects of radio.
During this time, I worked for a local St. Louis DJ service named Millenium Music, which was the top-rated DJ service in the city. It was here that I got most of my experience in being a mobile DJ. I learned to be very attentive to small details of presentation, especially when working with brides and wedding planners. After living in St. Louis, I worked with a company called Top Hat Productions in Peoria, IL, furthering my experience.
In the ensuing four years, I provided music at roughly 300 weddings (not including other functions!).
Lastly, I worked for 2 and a half years in radio in Texarkana, TX. I spent a year as an on-air personality for a Top 40 station for the afternoon drive, and thereafter, i worked behind the scenes with production.
I am dedicated to your satisfaction....so call today to set up your dream event!
