Matt Shew and his wife helped everything run completely smoothly while staying behind the scenes-- he listened exactly to what musical selections we wanted, honored the Do Not Play list, and played music that everyone-- regardless of age-- could dance to. He has a very good speaking voice for introductions and they made us a cd of all the songs (reception entrance songs for wedding party, first dance, father-daughter dance, mother-son, etc) used in our wedding. At the end of the night, we both hugged them-- could not have imagined anyone better!
I had the pleasure of working with Nicole for my wedding day; she was amazing! Everything ran so smoothly, I could not have been happier with how my ceremony and reception turned out! Nicole handled everything for me... which took so much stress off of me during the day and allowed me to enjoy everything so much more! I had always been told that your wedding day will be such a blur to you since you will be having to deal with so much; but because of Nicole, I was able to not worry about a thing and just enjoy my entire day! The Shew-sical team was so helpful and responsive with all of my questions and requests leading up to the big day, it made me have complete confidence in them before I even met them! 3 weeks after my wedding, and I still haven't stopped hearing comments about how my wedding was the most fun guests have had in as long as they can remember!!
Matt did an amazing job!!! I remember turning around and looking and EVERYONE except a hand full of people were up and dancing! I let him do his thing and he picked perfect songs!!! Everything transitioned smoothly! The sound system was great! Couldn't have had a better DJ!!! A lot of guests commented that he was the best DJ they have ever had at a wedding- and hands down I agree!!!
Our DJ, Dustin, from Shew-sical was great! He was always calm, kept our schedule flowing on time without being too strict about when we had to do certain things, and he respected our "do not play" list. He played songs that went well with our theme was present without being an overbearing entertainer at our wedding.
However, in dealing with Shew-sical over email, I always had a different person responding and they were all very short, unprofessional, and unemotional. They didn't really make me feel like I didn't have to worry about a thing (even though in the end - they were great!)
Their performance the day of the wedding was amazing. Every day leading up to it, not as much.
Our DJ, Robert, was awesome. No cheesy stand-up and he kept everyone dancing all night long. Super professional staff that made us feel comfortable from the very first meeting. We had a very eclectic playlist and they worked everything in so that each song easily flowed into the next. Couldn't be happier!
Our DJ Dustin was very professional and met all of our music needs for our wedding reception. We had everything from pop, country, oldies to top 40 hits and had every song upon request from my guest Shew-sical also provided dancing lights. Very flexible and reasonably priced. Fun time had by all and I would highly recommend and use them in the future.
We absolutely loved having Robert from Shew-sical as the DJ for our wedding! Nicole and Matt were very easy and accommodating to work with initially since we were not local to their area. After meeting with Robert we were beyond excited to have him as our DJ for our wedding. We were struggling a bit to complete the music form they provided since we wanted something different for ceremony, cocktail hour, and dinner music selections. We had a great discussion with Robert about our likes and dislikes and he was able to make recommendations to complete our form with ease. When our wedding day came, everything went flawlessly. He followed our do not play list, played our requests, and even accommodated our guests requests. He made sure to play a variety of music that everyone could enjoy. To just further prove how much he wanted our guests involved, Robert joined us on the dance floor to teach myself and everyone else how to do one of the dances! We cannot thank him enough for making our wedding day so much fun and recommend both Robert and Shew-sical for anyone's wedding day needs!
Matt Shew did an awesome job as our DJ! He listend to our likes and dislikes and helped keep us on schedule on the day of. We didn't hire a wedding coordinator so our wedding schedule would have been a mess if it weren't for him! Our guests had a great time dancing and we would highly recommend Shew-sical for your DJ needs!
Shew-sical was great! My only complaint was the announcements made by the DJ were quiet, and difficult for guests to hear. Otherwise, the music choices were on-target and all requests were accommodated. Made the night perfect!
we had a wonderful experience with Matt. We met him briefly at an open house (for a venue we didn't use) and he was so laid back and not giving us sales pitches or being pushy. When we finally picked our venue, we set up a meeting with Matt.
He checked in with us before the reception started, during the reception and we had to do some adjustments to the timing (our fault) which he totally accommodated.
Really great DJ, service & would recommend him to everyone!
We had Matt as our DJ, and he was really awesome! Our taste in music isn't particularly unique, but it doesn't include much of any of the kind of songs that you'd commonly hear at a wedding. We're into bands like Hot Chip, The 2 Bears, Daft Punk, and Calvin Harris for dancing. For our cocktail hour we liked Radiohead, The Fray, Broken Bells, and Django Django (to name a few). Matt was *perfect* at figuring out our tastes, and he played a ton of our most favorite songs. There wasn't a single song that we didn't like. The guests loved having good beats to dance to, and the employees at our venue appreciated a fresh playlist apart from the usual "Call Me Maybe" and the chicken dance. At the last minute, we even sent him a song that one of our friends plays an instrument in - he gladly worked it into the playlist! All in all, I could not have asked for a more "spot on" playlist for our big day. He was great to work with - most things were worked out via email. He listened well to our requests, and did his best to fulfill them.
In short, GO WITH SHEW-SICAL! You will not be disappointed.
Shew-sical Entertainment did a wonderful job DJing our wedding! This was probably the easiest vendor we booked because we had heard so many wonderful things about them! I honestly didn’t even look at other DJs. We knew from the get-go we wanted Shew-sical to do our wedding! We met with Matt about a week before our wedding to go over all the details, playlists, etc. and it made us even more excited. He listened to everything we wanted played and did a phenomenal job! So many of our guests commented on how great the DJ was, how he was the perfect MC, and the song selections were great for our crowd! I would definitely recommend Shew-sical for your upcoming wedding. They are very professional, responsive, and have great experience! Wonderful job!!!
We used Shew-sical for our October wedding at the Lodge at Little Seneca Creek for both our ceremony and our reception. Everything went absolutely seamlessly, and we could not have been happier with Shew-sical's work!
Matt worked with us in the months leading up to the wedding, helping to walk us through the process of creating an itinerary and choosing a song list. Our actual DJ was Dustin, who did a FABULOUS job! We communicated with Dustin several times in the weeks before the big day, and he accommodated all of our requests, respected our do-not-play list, and created an all-around amazing atmosphere for our big day. He played a great mix of songs that had both the older and younger generations dancing all night long -- it was perfect!
Matt of Shew-sical Entertainment was GREAT!! He was the DJ for my son’s wedding rehearsal dinner/party. Being from out of town, I depended on the recommendations of the venue, Dutch’s Daughter. From our first conversation I knew I had found the perfect DJ for the evening. He understood what type of party I wanted. Being in the event business myself, I have worked with many DJs. Matt was friendly and so easy to work with…professional and gracious. He had control over the event and was a super emcee from the dinner until the end of the evening. I am so glad I decided to extend the time of the event an hour. From start to finish there was always a group on the dance floor! Our guests of all ages had a blast and the party was all I had hoped it would be. Thanks Matt!!
We hired Shewsical because of the rave reviews as well as a fabulous price. Turns out they were worth every single cent! Matt helped us to make the day special (with their form to help brides). When we told them we just wanted a party, Matt made sure to make that happen! When we had requests to move the ceremony outside, there was no hesitation to make it happen! I felt like an important client and had everything answered promptly. I would absolutely recommend their services to anyone, and I'd definitely use them again should the need arise!
Our wedding day was flawless. I bet you don't hear that often! We had the best vendors and Shewsical Entertainment were hands down the best! They kept the party going all night. Everyone had a great time and commented how great the DJ was. A bad DJ can really ruin a wedding and that is one thing you don't have to worry about hiring Shewsical Entertainment. THE BEST DJ AROUND! If I were to renew my vows and get married again I would absolutely go with the Shews again. That's a good sign when you have clients willing to use you again!
My husband and me got married December 2012. We were very impressed with Shew-sical Entertainment Services by their professionalism and attention to detail before and during the event. We received many compliments on the music and easy flow at our reception. I would highly recommend them for any event and I will certainly book them again when we need their services in a heartbeat!
Matt Shew and Shewsical are the best! We are so glad we went with them! They we're our second vendor booked and were recommended by our venue. They turned us on to all of our other vendors out of the Frederick Maryland FABNet!!
Because we booked so early and the Shew's had a baby there was a small lag in communication that had me slightly worried. I shouldn't have!! He was great! Everything went so smooth and there were no issues at all!!
Trust Matt Shew with your wedding - I guarantee you won't be disappointed.
We can't say enough good things about Shew-sical Entertainment Services! We hired them for our wedding and they provided services for the ceremony and the reception. First let me say, that we had a music theme for our wedding and are very particular about the music we wanted (and didn't want) played. Matt is easy to work with and rose to the challenge of our music theme. During the reception he mixed in crowd favorites (that appealed to all generations) while playing the indie music that was important to us. We got married on St. Patrick's Day and Matt worked in some traditional irish music as well and it all flowed. Our dance floor was packed all night thanks to Matt! Our guests told us it was one of the best weddings they have been to!
We highly recommend shew-sical for any event. We met with Nicole twice and she was very organized and flexible with everything we wanted to do. She was on time, the music was awesome, and she directed everything with an upbeat attitude. We couldn't have been happier.
