Since 1980, this brother and sister team (Rick Matousek and Judi Chevrolet) has had the pleasure of working together providing quality entertainment for a wide variety of audiences and events. Whether they are spinning cds as djs, singing together in their 2-piece combo or performing together in their 6-piece band, Rick and Judi deliver a combination of professionalism, excitement and fun that makes every party a success!
Having a DJ team like BackStreet ensures a seamless flow of events. While Rick enjoys staying on stage putting together a great mix of tunes, Judi works her magic as she coordinates the evening’s itinerary utilizing her sunny smile and cheery disposition making her the universal favorite. The end result is that they never fail to deliver the goods!
Having been raised in a theatrical and musical family, Rick started playing keyboards at the age of seven. He soon “outgrew” his instructor, taught himself to the texts of John Mehegan and performed with Neil Geraldo, guitarist for Pat Benatar. He toured with MainStreet Singers in Las Vegas, opening for such acts as Rodney Dangerfield, Bob Hope and Rich Little among many others. Rick is currently the music director of BackStreet Entertainment writing originals, charts & sequences, arranging vocals, playing keyboards, dj-ing and singing lead male vocals.
Their unique blend of talent, experience and creative passion make BackStreet your ideal entertainment choice.
Great DJ Match, So Much FUN
When planning the wedding, we wanted a DJ who would play great tunes, read the crowd well, not take over the night, and incorporate our mix of cultures (my husband is from Botswana, Southern Africa). We were not opinionated on which DJ, so we selected the Best Choice DJ package and CLE Music Group matched us up with Judi. Judi was AMAZING. A joy to work with, enthusiastic about mixing music from all over the world, totally got our vibe, had great suggestions when we chatted before the event, and she just so kind and passionate about her job! We were over the moon pleased. She got our guests out onto the dance floor and kept the party going until the last minute. Thank you Judi!Erika Franz & Kudzani MatshabaSep 17, 2016Crystal Brook Farm
Made our 4th of July Family Reunion and Graduation Party a total BLAST!
We have the highest praise for our DJ “Judi,” she really made the day so very special and fun for all who attended. Thank you for getting Judi for our event and we will have her again, as she is a Rock Star!Janice G. MurphyJul 2, 2016Private Residence
Phenomenal service with a smile!
We had the pleasure of working with Judi Chevrolet for Best Choice DJ services at our recent wedding. We both found working with Judy incredibly easy. Judi worked with us on our timeframe, kept things very laid back, accommodated our last minute requests, greeted guests warmly, engaged the group and met all of our expectations. I would highly recommend her services.Joe & Patti DoychakMay 21, 2016Hines Hill Conference Center (barn)
Judi was a terrific addition to our event
Judi of Backstreet DJs was the perfect choice for our holiday party. I had many people ask how we found her, so kudos to The Cleveland Music Group website. We would definitely use Judi again and I would love to have the budget to have the Backstreet Trio. Our group crossed an age group of 25-75 and Judi was able to actively engage the entire group. She announced our activities and speakers and drew numbers for our door prizes. Very professional, a smooth as silk voice . . . We had a fun and entertaining evening and Judi was a big part of making it all come together. Thank You again, Judi!Barb CochranDec 12, 2015Crowne Plaza Cleveland Airport Hotel, Middleburg Hts. OH
Fantastic…was worth every penny!!!!!
I am so pleased that I hired DJs. Judi and Rick were talented professionals who made the difference. Even though very reasonably priced, people came up to me to compliment me “putting money” into the music. The music made a difference. My 83 year old aunt even danced with all of us. What more can I say?? I wish I could have the evening repeated again and again. Judi and Rick played the music I requested and then they added to the play list to make the evening fun.Denise LesniakAug 8, 2015Hotel-the Ritz-Carlton, Cleveland
Amazing DJ and MC!
Judi was amazing! She supported us throughout the entire process. She answered even the most basic questions for us about the wedding reception process and order of events with grace and helpfulness. Judi was a fantastic MC and kept the evening running smoothly. We had a very international feel at our reception and asked Judi and her brother Rick to manage a very diverse playlist which they did beautifully! We could not have asked for a better wedding night and would recommend them for all events and weddings.Raffi SetrakianAug 1, 2015Shaker Heights Country Club
We loved Rick and Judi!
We could not have been more pleased with Backstreet Entertainment. Rick set such an elegant tone playing jazz on the baby grand piano during cocktails. Once Judi took over with introductions and toasts during dinner, the evening just continued to soar. With a crowd ranging from 20-somethings to 80+, Judi and Rick kept us going until midnight. Plus, they are just lovely people with whom we really enjoyed sharing our special day. We would highly recommend them to family and friends without hesitation.Marion and Rod BeckerinkNov 15, 2014The Ritz-Carlton, Cleveland
Judy Chevrolet was outstanding! Totally made this event a memory we will cherish forever! Super energy and totally could tell she loves what she does.Janice MurphyJun 16, 2012Waterford Crossing Clubhouse

The Backstreet DJs have been playing my family weddings for many years. Every wedding, they have done an outstanding job. I love all the music that is played and they can keep a crowd dancing. Thank You Backstreet DJs for making my wedding day extra special and perfect.Jennifer ConstanzoJun 4, 2011La Malfa
Hats off to you both! What an incredible party. Never, not one dull moment in the entire evening. The phone calls keep coming about the party and everyone wants to know how I found you. ‘Extremely, extremely, lucky,’ I said. I could plan it, set it up, and decorate it, but could not have pulled off the fun that you provided for us. THANK YOU from the bottom of our hearts!Barb Burke (Katie Burke & Matt Cartwright)Jul 25, 2010Gervasi Vineyard
Rick and Judi once again did a great job making our resident graduation party very special. We know people are talking about the party because a couple of people from different departments have asked me where we found such great DJ’s.Lois HengeniusJun 5, 2010Cleveland Skating Club
Excellent doesn’t do them justice. Judi and Rick were awesome. Everyone kept saying how great they were. They were awesome and I’m so so so glad they were there. From the first email to the last song, Backstreet and Jerry Bruno Productions were professional, helpful, efficient and flat out fabulous. I wouldn’t change anything about the entire process.Joanna Lefebvre & Jeffrey DeChellisSep 26, 2009Union Club

We had so many compliments on our DJ after the wedding from family and friends and have given out your name and info to many as well.
