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 & Nicole were excellent to work with leading up to our wedding! We had a phone call instead of an in-person appointment, and they were lovely.

Shew-sical was an awesome DJ choice! They met with us before the Big Day to nail down all the details and pointed out some things we hadn't thought of that we are glad we incorporated.

We absolutely LOVED our DJ, Tim!! He checked in with us throughout the night, and kept the dance floor PACKED! We didn't have to worry about anything because he handled it so well.

Matt was an amazing DJ! Very friendly and professional and knew just how to get the crowd on the dance floor. He came around before the entrances to confirm the pronunciation of everyone's names, if that's a concern for anyone :)

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!

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.

Matt was absolutely great to work with and was very helpful.

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!
