Bryan Matthew traces his love of music to his father, a Denver-area radio personality with 30-plus years in the business, who introduced Bryan to the medium at a young age. To this day, Bryan credits such Denver-radio icons as Lewis and Floorwax with helping him develop his inimitable event hosting style behind a microphone.
Rewind to the age of 14 where Bryan’s first performances as a DJ were rocking the packed teen parties on Friday night at the local skating rink. Later in college, he landed a primetime radio show and the first of many weekly residencies that funded an enormous budget for vinyl records. With a huge arsenal of electronic music, Bryan sought the allure of underground performances taking on the DJ name, “ASCENSION.” At the height of his performances, Bryan was playing 6 hour sets three nights a week with regular bookings all over the United States. With the help of a few fellow successful DJs, Bryan forged the talent and event management group dubbed, “TWENTY40 EVENTS” and for years, TWENTY40 was recognized as a leading force in Colorado throwing wildly successful parties.
Bryan Matthew has combined 20 years of knowledge in nightlife performance and event management with a degree in Persuasive Rhetoric and 10 years of successful B2B sales. His talent in event conception and promotion is now amplified and defined by a deep understanding of sales architecture. You can regularly catch a set from ASCENSION at the biggest clubs in Colorado and Las Vegas.
