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!!!
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!
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.
I heard about Shew-sical through our venue, Shade Trees & Evergreens.
We met with Matt many months ago, and agrees to use Shew-sical based on the many great reviews other brides had written.
Shew-sical was a huge help in advising and helping to plan the musical aspects of our ceremony and reception. As we live in Chicago, we had to email back and forth quite a bit.
The end result was perfect. Our ceremony had a beautiful mood thanks to a flawless sound from Shew-sical. And everyone could hear our vows thanks to the mic we used.
The reception was tons of fun- and all the music I requested was taken into consideration. Our guests were dancing, and the DJ we had kept the night going.
So glad we went with Shew-sical. I highly recommend them! :)
Matt is a great MC! My wedding was a great dance party.
Mike Appenzellar was our DJ and he was great!
Very professional, very nice, and played awesome music. I got a lot of compliments on the music he played, and Matt was very flexible and worked with our schedule. Our colors were purple and black.. and Mike Appenzellar was kind enough to wear purple as well. Mike was a lot of fun, and very fun! This was a very big part of our day, and Mike made it perfect! Thanks!
We stumbled upon Shewsical almost by accident. A last minute decision to attend a bridal expo in Hagerstown, Md led us to their vendor table. From the minute we met the owner, Matt, we knew that there was a pride and professionalism in his business that would lead to a great experience.
I use the term “we” lightly because my husband was in charge of the DJ for the wedding. He has experience with audio engineering through his job and therefore was deemed the expert for this component of the wedding. I just wanted great music that would get everyone on the dance floor. He chose Shewsical and I happily agreed.
They did not disappoint! From the moment we entered the venue until the last person was dragged off the dance floor, we had the most amazing time. We were insistent that our DJ be able to roll with the evening and choose appropriate music without us having to dictate each song played. Jeff Sears was our musical guide for the night and he balanced perfectly how to energize a crowd without being overly invasive. That being said, anything we requested before or during, he catered to without hesitation and in a way that created a seamless good time. Leading up to our perfect day, Jeff was proactive in familiarizing himself with us and our wedding and we had the utmost confidence in his talent. We got married in June and are still receiving compliments on how fun the reception was and specifically, how great our DJ Jeff was!
We feel without a doubt, that Jeff and Shewsical played a vital role in the success of our reception. When you get that point in the day, you want to be able to relax without sacrificing quality. Do yourself a favor and choose Jeff to make that possible.
There aren’t enough good things to say about the Shew-Sicals. Our wedding was this July in Washington DC and we could not have asked for better DJs. They were low maintenance and easy to work with. No one wanted to leave the dance floor the entire night, including the bride’s grandmother who didn’t even speak English. They made our wedding an event everyone will remember. Of all our vendors, they were by far the best!! – Matt and Suzy.
Matt Shew provided all the DJ services for our entire wedding - sound systems and microphones for the ceremony, music for the cocktail hour, and of course DJ services for the reception. Matt was very responsive and easy to work with. We met about a month before our wedding and he gave us some really great suggestions. He is very flexible and as we changed a few things even during the reception, he was totally cool and handled all the last minute changes. Highly recommend Matt Shew for DJ services.
