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... Read More 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!

Absolute Pros!!

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... Read More 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!!

Everyone was dancing!!!

Matt with Shew-sical is the absolute best. From the first time we met the staff at bridal shows, we knew they were perfect for us. From the beginning Shew-sical was responsive to all our questions, emails, and any changes requested. Shew-sical was very accommodating with meeting... Read More times since we were not very local. Everyone was very helpful through out the entire process and I had no doubt that everything would be perfect. I had specific songs to be played that were remixes and out of the ordinary songs and Matt nailed it. There was not a time that there wasn't a group on the dance floor. The crowd was read and perfect songs were played. We couldn't have asked for a better DJ service. I will be recommending Shew-sical to everyone that we know!!!

Shew-sical made our wedding SO AMAZING! My wife and I are Jewish and we wanted a local DJ with Jewish wedding experience and we shopped around a bunch and ultimately landed on Shew-sical as they were local and had the required experience. I worked with Matt and Nicole (the... Read More owners) to negotiate the contract and agree on the services and they were FANTASTIC to work with. They were great with e-mail communication and made us feel like their only customer! Their prices are really reasonable and they offer a one stop shop for the equipment including microphones. Our DJ was Robert H. and he was absolutely fantastic! We sent Robert our wedding itinerary, paying special focus on our Jewish traditional songs. Robert had experience at Jewish weddings however ours was unique given we want certain dance sets that weren't customary at all Jewish weddings. Robert was patient with us and even took last minute changes on the day of our wedding! Robert showed up early and set up three different sound stations so the music would be heard all over our venue. Robert sent us a Top 200 song list and we gave him our preferences and he stick to the list. We heard that our music was so fun and our friends stayed to the final song (on a Sunday night!) and danced non-stop throughout the night. Robert did such a tasteful job at our ceremony and he lit up the dance floor. We are SO happy with our choice of Shew-sical and STRONGLY recommend them to other couples!

Shew-sical really took our reception to the next level.

Amazing! Shew-sical was excellent throughout our entire time working with them, from initial planning and contract stages to the actual wedding reception. They were very responsive to our initial questions regarding their services, also providing a suggested list of songs.... Read More Additionally, it was obvious they care about their customers' wishes, as we were able to submit an entire list of songs divided by "cocktail hour", "reception", and "must play" categories, which was adhered to throughout the evening. Robert was our DJ, and he was both talented and incredibly professional. Leading up to the wedding, he took time for a phone call to review our questionnaire that we filled out as well as to listen to our vision for the evening. Evening of, he helped direct toasts, first dances, and encouraged guests to join the dance floor when appropriate. His choice of songs and styles from our list made the night amazing.

I can't recommend Shew-sical (and Robert if he's available) enough!
