ROCKstar of the Month of February: Matt Heyl

February’s ROCKstar of the Month is Matt Heyl! Since joining the RTH team five years ago, Matt has continued to fine-tune his skills as a DJ and deliver phenomenal entertainment. No matter the event, when he’s behind a set of turntables, we know the event is in great hands!

“My favorite things about being on the RTH team are the opportunities to meet new people, work in different venues, and experience first-hand the planning and execution of amazing events. It’s rewarding to have a job that I truly enjoy and look forward to doing every weekend.”

– Matt Heyl, ROCKstar of the Month

Matt’s interest in entertainment began at a young age when he received his first set of turntables and he hasn’t stopped fueling that passion since! When he’s not spinning tracks at an event, Matt enjoys riding his motorcycle and customizing his sports car.

Of the many events that Matt has worked, he shared that his favorite was the Belkin bat mitzvah at the House of Blues.

“I have attended many concerts at the House of Blues, but to see the entire venue decorated pink was surreal. On stage as a DJ, it was an incredible feeling knowing that I am standing on the same stage as world renowned artists that have performed at the House of Blues. It was a night I will never forget.”
