About Us


At Detroit Event Company, we help our clients select the perfect vendors to create a flawless event, so that their guests have a great time and are amazed by their hosts. We know hosting an event can lead to a lot of pressure and stress, specifically around how to dazzle your guests with amazing entertainment. Our job is to learn what it's going to take to make your event perfect, and then help you hire and manage the entertainment that brings your vision to life! The best part? -- everyone is going to leave the event thinking YOU are the mastermind behind it all!

Whether you're looking for a full band, a singer/songwriter, a jazz trio, or a killer DJ, we've got you covered. We've partnered with the best entertainers around and paired that with our proven process to make sure the experience is fun and hits the mark every time.

Matt Rappaport

"Hi, my name is Matt! I’ve been working in the event industry since 2010, initially as band leader for Collision Six and now with my incredible team at Detroit Event Company. I founded this company because I’m passionate about creating collaborative environments so that everyone feels a sense of security and inclusion. I believe that open and honest dialogue with our clients and partners lead to environments where every guest feels they belong. When people feel safe, they’ll speak up for what matters to them, and it helps us bring those ideas to reality. Those ideas lead to events where everyone feels included and able to have fun in their own way. Events are about being part of something bigger than ourselves and creating memories that will last a lifetime, and I couldn’t be more proud to be involved in making that happen!"
