REALLY GREAT MEETINGS
MANAGING DIRECTOR | CHICAGO, IL
Our clients had just come from the Lincoln Center and we were specifically looking for a similar experience. We looked at other companies from Miami to Tampa and even Orlando. We were looking for a custom show for their most important customers. Mathews Entertainment’s BROADWAY IN CONCERT was that and more! In all my years of planning events, I have never seen anything like it!
MICHAEL CHAMOUN
STRAZ CENTER FOR THE PERFORMING ARTS
PRODUCTION MANAGER | TAMPA, FL
I’ve been in the professional entertainment industry for over 40 years and I think I can be considered an expert in judging the quality of a show. Mathews Entertainment’s productions are very professional and up to the standard of our [Straz Center For The Performing Arts] produced shows. The best non-Center-produced shows I’ve ever seen! The audiences love them and respond after each and every number. I have no reservations about recommending them to anyone!
MATTHEW WARDELL
REILLY ARTS CENTER
CEO/ARTISTIC DIRECTOR | OCALA, FL
Mathews Entertainment was the perfect partner for our A NIGHT AT THE COPA event where we raised over $80,000 for our arts center. Professional, a pleasure to work with and, more than anything, just pure fun! We’ve booked them for two full shows in our venue this coming year and hope to work with them for years to come!

The talent here is extraordinary! Mike Mathews gets the best talent for the shows! That’s why I actually came out of retirement directing… and there’s no other company that I would even have thought about working with. I’ve seen all the shows that Mathews has done and they’re just top of the line.

MARK LEIB
CREATIVE LOAFING MAGAZINE
PERFORMING ARTS CRITIC | ATLANTA, GA
“I’ve seldom met [someone] with as much energy and sheer willpower as Mike Mathews. So impressed. Wonderful artistry. It occurred to me that I better start taking him seriously. Dynamic, aggressive and irrepressively enterprising. Dedicated and tenacious… and selling out houses. He looks like an athlete, talks like a salesman and happens also to be a star performer. Clearly, Mathews is doing something right – or, more likely, many things right.”

ADVERTISING DIRECTOR | OCALA, FL
Michael and Jessica were fantastic additions as the Entertainment and EmCees for the Ocala Star Banner’s Inaugural Senior Life Expo. They kept the crowd entertained and informed for two full days, and we’ve already invited them back for next year’s event. Other Florida news organizations are asking us for their booking information, too! The Mathews’ are true professionals and real talents!

LA CUISINE FRENCH RESTAURANT
PROPRIETORS | OCALA, FL
As a fine, intimate and authentic French restaurant located in the heart of the “Horse Capital of the World,” there is a certain level of quality, ambiance and experience that our very discerning patrons expect. As they say, the road to the Kentucky Derby starts in Ocala. Because of that, we serve guests from all around the globe as well as our regular local clientele. As they currently make their home in Ocala when they are not on tour, we’ve been so fortunate to have Michael and Jessica perform for us when their schedules allow for almost 2 years now. Their talent is impeccable and they make sure that every one of our guests have a wonderful experience. For obvious reasons, they have quite the following and we look forward to having them a part of the La Cuisine Family as long as their schedules allow.
