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!!!

Our DJ was Matt and he did an amazing job even in 90-degree weather (we got married at the end of September). He was very responsive and answered all of our questions. He took to the time to meet with us in person. He even made last minute changes that I requested to our... Read More playlist. My guests are not big dancers, but he made sure to keep the party going. We gave him a list of must play songs for our ceremony, introductions, dances, and other wedding activities. We also gave him a list of other songs that we would like to hear during the reception, but didn’t have to play. He played those songs plus similar songs. They also wanted to know the songs that we did not want played. Matt was also great about following the timeline. He always let us know when our next activity was coming up. My Great-Grandmom’s 103rd birthday was the day after our wedding and he made a special announcement for her and wished her a Happy Birthday. I highly recommend Matt and his team!

Our DJ was Nicole Shew with Shew-Sical entertainment and she was the perfect DJ for our wedding. They were affordable and easy to work with for the planning process. I was not a bride who had a detailed plan for every single song to be played throughout the night, so I worked... Read More with the lists they provided and based on what my fiancé and I liked, Nicole was able to make a wonderful mix of music for the whole night. She kept us informed when there were some electricity issues at our venue and had a back up plan for a power outage. She rolled with the punches and mishaps and kept the party going until the end!

We had an amazing experience with Shew-sical - one of the simplest and least stressful parts of our wedding was the DJ! We called Matt to request a quote and were so impressed we booked them ASAP. The owners are polite, professional, friendly, and straightforward. We had... Read More contracts and communication when we were told we would (which was not as common among vendors as we thought it would be), and once we were assigned our DJ for the night we were even more thrilled. Our DJ was Tim and he was funny, professional, and perfect for us. He felt like the kind of guy we'd want to grab a beer with later and put us at ease immediately. We wanted geeky flair to our wedding - Star Trek and Star Wars music, Lord of the Rings, you get the idea - and we didn't have to micromanage Tim at all. He knew exactly what playlist to put together for us and kept the party moving during the wedding reception. We would recommend Shew-sical to anyone in the area. Great company, and Tim specifically was a great DJ!

We had the privilege of working with Nicole Shew throughout the process of planning our wedding and Nicole did an amazing job DJ-ing for our wedding in September. We watched family members and friends we did not know liked to dance spend the evening on the dance floor – and... Read More were later told people danced more at our wedding than they ever have before. We know this is due to Nicole’s incredible talent to feel the vibe of the room and make musical choices accordingly. We also chose to have Shewsical provide the sound for our ceremony outside and music throughout dinner and we feel this really made the entire day so memorable. Nicole was easy to work with, so pleasant and kind, and an overall fun person to be around! Additionally, we feel it’s important to note the incredible difference WOW Lighting made for our venue. We were initially ambivalent about the additional purchase (though very reasonably priced) and we are so glad we made the decision to get lighting for our reception. Nicole assisted us with picking out lights that would look beautiful in our venue and we really feel the lighting helped to make the reception not only scenic but the perfect atmosphere for our guests to have an awesome night dancing. We cannot speak highly enough of Shewsical and Wow Lighting – we are so glad we made the decision to use their services! We really believe Nicole and her talents made our night so fun.

Nicole was an amazing DJ! The company was extremely easy to work with. She was so on top of everything on the days/months leading up to the event and then the day of could not have gone better. People were raving about the playlist. She did a great job playing fun, but older... Read More music for the parents and older guests to dance to at first, and then switching to a more current mix of music as the night went on. My friends loved all the music and the dance floor was packed the entire night! She handled a potentially awkward family situation so well and was extremely well prepared. She also provided a microphone and speakers for our outdoor ceremony, which went perfectly as well. She respected all of our 'do not plays' and even came up to me towards the end of the night to see if there were any other songs I wanted to hear before the end of the night! We were thrilled.

I was recently married in Northern VA and we were blessed to have DJ Jeff from Shew-sical Entertainment play for our ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception. Jeff played music that set the mood for each part of the wedding and kept the party going through the whole night! He... Read More followed our no-play and please-play song lists as well as guest requests. He also coordinated with our live ceremony musician flawlessly (we had my brother-in-law play our song for the bridal processional) to ensure everything went smoothly.

We couldn't be happier with the amazing service we got with Shew-sical Entertainment and highly recommend DJ Jeff!

Perfect DJ! Working with this company was a pleasure. They were very willing to talk to me over the phone about any questions, and were very response to email questions. They sent a list of top songs to help guide us, and a detailed questionnaire to fill out so they knew exactly... Read More what we were looking for. They offered to hold a final consultation at their offices, which we could not make but which we appreciated. The day of, Travis was on time and was wonderful! We were a bit vague on the questionnaire, leaving some decisions up to the DJ, and he played exactly what we liked. We got several compliments on the music, letting us know that this was the single best mix of songs to dance to that they had ever heard. There was a song for everyone, and the dance floor was packed from the beginning to end. He made sure to steer away from our do-not-plays and played our must-plays. The only recommendation I would make to the company that I think would have been helpful is more guidance and examples with the questionnaire. I would have appreciated some common songs for the different ceremony choices and some common choices for the introductions just so we could get a better start. Other than that, everything was perfect, and Travis was excellent!
