DJ Gaz

In 1988, a simple 5-line ad in the newspaper was looking for someone who loved music and was not afraid of being in front of large groups of people. After being “volunteered” at every party to “take over the music” and being told countless times that he had a voice for radio (or was that a face!?), Matt Gazdak (DJ GAZ) decided to answer that ad. Hired on the spot, so began a career that has spanned 20 years and every type of event a disc jockey can work.

Growing up in Mayfield Village in a house jammed daily with music from all tastes and genres, the love of all types of music was imbedded at a very early age and has grown stronger every year since. As a matter of fact, not including family, the only thing stronger than his love of music is an addicting obsession with producing a packed dance floor. Matt likes to meet with clients to get a vision of how they want the night to go and then he acts as a type of ‘stage manager’ to make that vision come to life, keeping in mind at all times who his ‘stars’ are. With a personality that’s stuck on the fun side of life, his musical taste is summed up in two words: “fun” and “danceable.”

Whether you and your guests want to polka all night long or bounce to the latest club jams, DJ GAZ is ready to step up to the mix and give you a night they’ll be talking about. A simple meeting is the next step to a night you’ll remember forever.


  • phenomenal music

    Our string trio left us speechless. I even had my choir director comment on how professional and talented they were. I was worried at first, but Tanis and crew made lovely music.

    I definitely recommend Mike Gazdak as DJ. We gave him a small amount of information and music selection to work from and he made sure that our dance floor was never empty. A great time was had by all!

    Exceptional Entertainment

    DJ Gaz made us feel so at ease in planning our wedding reception. He was easy to work with and we would hire him again in a heart beat. Our guests had the best time ever and loved his music choices. We couldn’t be happier!

    DJ Matt Gazdak gets us moving and grooving. He is a crowd pleaser!!

    I have had the pleasure of having Matt as our DJ for more that one event, and each time he has surprised me with how much fun we have. He has a great verity of music. Our guest had a wonderful time dancing to his music. We have two events each year and I will request him on the next one also. Thank you Cleveland Music Group and Matt Gazdak!

    DJ Gaz is 5 star

    Fantastic experience with Matt (DJ Gaz). I appreciated his sharing his insight and experience on reception flow of events. You can tell he has a lot of experience. He is extremely personable and he kept the dance floor packed in between band breaks. He is a consummate professional and a terrific DJ.

    Perfect Ceremony and Reception

    We wouldn’t have changed a single note for our wedding day music. DJ Matt Gazdak was friendly and easy to work with. He was happy to play some of our quirkier song selections for our wedding ceremony. Everyone enjoyed his selections for cocktail hour. And the reception was such a blast! The dance floor never was less than half full the entire night, mostly it was packed. Guests told us they wished they had the nights music as a playlist to take home.

    Matt was awesome. The guests and I were on the dance floor the majority of the time. The music selection was very good and upbeat. A lot of my friends and family said that was one of the best weddings they were ever at. I thank Matt Gadzak and staff for making our wedding very special and memorable.

    I have had several people text me the week after the party and say it was the best party they were ever at in their entire life. People make the party; music keeps them moving. Thank you.

    If any bride is worried about finding a great DJ, they need to book MATT GAZDAK! The music and dancing at our wedding was one thing I was worried about, but Matt handled the music selections wonderfully. He played everything we wanted to have played, and selected songs that had EVERYONE out on the dance floor. I was so pleased with how Matt and his partner handled themselves. They were polite, courteous, and very accommodating to everything we needed.

    We were impressed! Matt exceeded our expectations. He was able to mix and play foreign music (at our request) in a language that he is not used to and did it with excellence. I am so happy we have chosen him.

    Excellent doesn’t say enough about Matt. He played EXACTLY what we wanted with some unique and creative additions sprinkled in that were totally in line with our style. He was flexible when plans changed (rain!!), friendly with everyone, took appropriate and fun requests, listened to us and kept the dance floor packed all night. I think I was a pretty difficult bride – I wanted a DJ who would be energetic and keep the party going, but without games or too much crowd interaction. Matt aced it – the perfect balance was struck. He even managed to slip in one perfectly timed and hilarious ‘OK Elizabeth, I’m getting off the mic now’ – everyone cracked up and I loved it. People are still raving about the music. Matt is a class act – a true gentleman and artist.

    Jerry Bruno was very easy to work with, from the first phone call throughout the end. Matt was everything and more than we expected in a professional DJ. I would recommend Matt to anyone. He was enjoyable to work with and was absolutely perfect for our wedding. He just fit right in!

    We just wanted to thank you again for putting on an amazing wedding – everyone loved the music. The dance floor was packed and we got tons of compliments! We had a lot of people say it was the best wedding they’ve been to, and got countless compliments on the music. We loved it as well, and wanted to thank you for the great time we knew you’d give us! Thanks again for everything! You’re the best! Everything turned out perfect!
