Matt Vail was born and raised in West Michigan. He graduated from Compass College of Cinematic Arts and worked in the film industry for a short period before making the decision to switch gears and manage a restaurant. After living and working in the Chicago area for a short time, he returned to Grand Rapids in 2013 where he lives with his wife, T.J., and 2 ½ year old daughter, Maddie.
Following 8 years spent in the restaurant business, Matt began his current career in account management/sales in the protective packaging industry.
Having grown up in a heavily music-influenced household, Matt remains very involved with music these days. When he is not at his “day job”, Matt keeps very busy not only DJ-ing weddings and events with ROTN, but also playing bass in and managing West Michigan’s #1 90’s Band, Project 90.

What Our Customers Say about Matt
“Our DJ, Matt, was outstanding and did his best to play all requests by our guests. The music choice was perfect and we couldn’t have asked for a better organized DJ that kept the dance floor full until the venue kicked us out!”
