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...

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!

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!

Everyone was dancing!!!

Overall, Shewsical was indeed fantastic and a solid option. They are relatively quick to respond to emails.

Working with Matt and Nicole was so easy.

I... Read More found them through the Frederick Area Bridal Network. Since I had no idea where to start as to looking for a DJ, I started there. Also, since our venue was in Frederick, MD, I figured there wouldn't be any travel fees (and there were not). After contacting them via e-mail, we did get to meet Matt in person, which was great. He was very friendly and able to answer all of the questions and concerns we had. We finalized everything via email, and it was great that Matt was the one able to DJ our special day. He was great at taking our song list and making it work with the current environment. No one danced at our wedding until the last hour, but when we were ready to dance, he was ready with dance-club music, which was perfect!! He was on time and dressed appropriately. He stayed for his contracted hours, and made sure to say good-bye before he left. As having never hired a DJ before, this was a great experience. I would highly recommend Shew-sical to anyone looking for a DJ.

Shew-sical did a fantastic job at our October wedding. We had Robert for our DJ, and he was awesome!

Our wedding reception was a blast thanks in large part to Tim from Shew-sical. Tim was completely professional, so fun, and an absolute delight to be around.

Shew-sical was great! We worked with them and created a play list based on their list of top music of the year.

Matt was absolutely great to work with and was very helpful. I felt a little uneasy at one point just communicating through email, but when I asked if we could speak over the phone he was very willing and answered all my questions and addressed my concerns. Up until about 2... Read More months before the wedding, I found that Eric was going to be our DJ (thought Matt was since I was communicating with him for the at least 4-5 months). Eric was GREAT in that he kept the guests dancing alllll evening! I was just slightly disappointed in that I had made a few special requests that I wanted Eric to address and he did not. I will say that the guests did not even notice, so it wasn't a HUGE deal, but I just felt like the time was not taken to read through the notes that I had made for them. I would still recommend Shew-sical and they were also very affordable!

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.

Shew-sical made our wedding SO AMAZING!

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!
