In 1999, he founded Rock The House and acquired regional competitors in 2010 (Selective Sound Entertainment) and 2013 (Zone Entertainment). The RTH family of companies has more than 125 employees and produces / performs at over 1,800 events per year including corporate events & meetings, non-profit galas, weddings, Bar/Bat Mitzvahs, and more.
Radicelli started DJing at age seven and regards his parents’ divorce when he was twelve as his “entrepreneurial catalyst.” As a teenager, he started his disc jockey business organizing high school dances and teen parties – a bold move that allowed him to invest heavily in other ventures. A ‘straight A’ student at the time, Radicelli decided not to go to college and started another business designing and installing audio-visual systems for nightclubs and restaurants. In 1999, Matt was asked to perform at his first Bat Mitzvah and the rest as they say, “is history.”
Matt has been featured as one of Crain’s 20’s in their 20’s, profiled by Smart Business Magazine, and was named valedictorian of his Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses class. He is a member of Entrepreneurs Organization (EO), past president of the International Live Events Society (ILES), and current President of DJ Think Tank.
One of Matt’s main passions is to share his experience and knowledge with other business owners. He speaks, coaches, and mentors others throughout the country, but never stops learning. His motto, “Delegate, Decline, Do” keeps him on track daily to give his time and attention where it’s needed most.
Matt works hard but keeps his priorities straight; his commitment to his team and clients comes second only to his commitment to his beautiful wife and 4 children.
