Nicole from Shew-sical was amazing! She took the time to make sure all of the songs that we wanted played at our wedding were played. She kept us on schedule and kept the dance floor full! We told her that we wanted everyone on the dance floor for the last song, and she came and found us in the photo booth before it started to make sure we were on the dance floor, too! Everytime we saw her, she had a smile on her face. Having someone who loves what they do DJ our wedding was such a blessing! We highly recommend Nicole and Shew-sical!

He kept the evening rolling and on schedule, took request, and just a really awesome DJ. We were on the dance floor all night long!

We couldn't be more pleased with the amazing job Matt did with our March 29, 2014 wedding ceremony & reception at Circle D Farm. He played every song we suggested and avoided all songs & artists we did not want to hear. He dressed professionally and ALWAYS had a smile on his face! He was patient with all my last minute changes and had great suggestions for things I wasn't sure about. Throughout the night, he kept us on our timeline to be sure all the important dances/events occured. He was wonderful to work with from beginning to end. If I ever need DJ services again, Shewsical will get my business!

Shew-sical exceeded our expectations from the very beginning. They were so responsive! They were happy to meet us to answer any questions we had and make sure the DJ's personality would fit with our wedding. We met a week before to finalize all the details as well. Matt was so excited to do our wedding and did a wonderful job! So many of our guests commented what an exceptional job he did. We would absolutely recommend Shew-sical to any couple looking for a great wedding DJ!

Shew-sicle Entertainment Services was the perfect fit for our reception! Matt and Nicole Shew were great to work with! The music selection was important to us and every request we had, they accommodated. We were told that the bride and groom should have full control of their music. Every song we had on our playlist was checked off as it was played, and she got through all of them! They were wonderful and cannot beat the reasonable price!! Would highly recommend!!

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 from Shew-sical was an awesome DJ! He was laid back but kept the party going with little direction. We just highlighted songs off their top 200 list as must plays and he took it from there. He also did a great job of keeping us on track with intros/first dance/cake cutting etc and played all requested songs at just the right moment. Everyone raved about how great the music was. It was nice to not have to sit through an online portal and pick out every song you want played. (which we ended up doing for our engagement party with another vendor and it was extremely time consuming) You should be able to trust your DJ to feel the crowd and keep the party going which is exactly what Matt did. Nicole was great to correspond with as well via e-mail and they were very fairly priced which was a huge plus!

We highly recommend - you can't go wrong!

We were so happy to have had Jeff from Shew-sical as our wedding DJ! My now husband called Jeff the day before the wedding to provide some last minute details on our music that he was able to make happen for us. He followed our timeline and music requests perfectly, and was very accommodating to any requests from our guests. The dance floor was packed from the minute that open dancing started until the end of the reception. We cannot thank Jeff enough for being such an easygoing and fun DJ for our wedding! Matt and Nicole were also a pleasure to work with during the booking process.

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!!

Matt Shew was our DJ for our reception only. We were so overwhelmed by how many DJs were available when we started looking that we really relied heavily on other people's reviews of them. Shew-sical got nothing by 5 stars from everyone they had worked with, so we thought, OK we'll try them first. Not only were Matt and his wife and co-owner, Nicole, very easily reachable, they were polite and professional on the phone. Matt met my then fiancé and I at a Panera Bread to talk about options and pricing because it was an easy middle-ground meeting place. They were so flexible and truly a pleasure to work with. On top of all that, their equipment was top-notch and there wasn't a single song that was unavailable to us. If they didn't have it, they acquired it, or we were able to send them mp3 files to be added to their library! We sent them several edited lists of songs we definitely wanted to hear, songs we did not want to hear at all, changing our minds multiple times and they kept up without missing a beat! Matt was also very accommodating with special requests we made regarding announcements, etc. I would HIGHLY recommend Shew-sical to anyone for any event. They made our job of finding a DJ an easy and completely non-stressful choice!

The whole team is incredible. Not only were they about half the price of the other DJ's I researched, but they even helped me pick my father-daughter dance song. They were easy to work with and had an easy worksheet to fill out that clearly shows they think about the details. My DJ was Angela and she was great. She was professional, classy and fun. She was not cheesy at all which was one of my fears and did a great job of making sure I was happy with how the night was proceeding. She played all of the music on my must-play list and knew how to work the crowd. My guests had a great time.

Shew-sical is fantastic! Matt and Nicole Shew are wonderful and very easy to work with. Less than a week from our wedding I realized we would need them for the ceremony music. They adjusted their schedule and accommodated the change with short notice. Even more is that we added a father-daughter dance at the last minute and they picked the perfect song. They played every song on our playlist and were able to get our guests up and dancing. They helped to make our wedding wonderful.

My wife and I used Shew-sical for our wedding at Liberty Mountain and we couldn't have been happier with the decision. When we were looking for DJs, Matt took the time to meet us near our apartment to go over their services. Matt was very professional, but also a fun guy so we knew we would in good hands. Matt was already booked on our wedding date for him to DJ himself, but he set us up with his good friend Jeff Sears to be our DJ & we were not disappointed at all. Jeff was absolutely awesome to work with! We met before the wedding to go over some of the details. We were unsure about a lot of things and Jeff helped make some great recommendations. He also communicated with us leading up to the wedding so when we thought of ideas we could easily let him know. Jeff was always responsive in a very friendly manner. On our wedding day, Jeff met all the obvious basics- on time, professional, great communication. Our biggest request was that we wanted our wedding to be a party and he helped make that happen! Everyone from our friends to our family to our parent's friends told us how much fun they had at our wedding & how great the DJ was. Jeff helped make our wedding incredible & we would highly recommend him to anyone.

Simply amazing!! There aren’t enough good things to say about the Shew-Sicals. Our wedding was this summer in Washington DC and we could not have asked for better DJs. They were low maintenance and easy to work with. The arrived early and were set-up well before the ceremony started and went over all the details one more time. 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 basically 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.

Matt, is a pleasure to work with. Our music choices were very specific for the ceremony with unusual tunes from across the world, we also had some quite specific ideas about what we wanted for cocktail hour, over dinner and for the dancing. Matt was happy to listen to us on all of these and to offer suggestions based on his experience as well. We were making changes right up until the last minute and he took it all in his stride in the same week that his wife was to give birth.

At the reception he quickly found the right tunes to suit the crowd and everyone was happily dancing until it was time to go.

You can't ask for a more from a wedding DJ.

Matt was wonderful! He made awesome suggestions that we were quick to include, that really helped make our day a truly incredible experience. He played every single request I made, even when I was adding songs the week of the wedding. Several guests commented on the music. He also stuck to our "do not play list" very strictly, until I gave him the ok after one of my guests pleaded for one of her favorites. I would recommend Shew-sical to anyone looking for a dj, I wish I threw more parties, so I could hire him again.

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.

Mike was the PERFECT wedding DJ. We called and emailed a few times beforehand so I could select what songs I wanted and how I wanted people introduced. They had a top 200 wedding playlist to select from with the option to add my own selections as well. People are still a month later telling me they've never been to a wedding with such perfect dancing music and such wonderful ambience. He was the perfect wedding dj!!

Matt was AMAZING. I was nervous about having a "successful" reception because I'd never thrown a big party, so having the right DJ was really important - and I couldn't be happier with what we got. A lot of our guests were very conservative folks, but we wanted the cocktail hour to still have our signature quirky flavor, so Matt had a great suggestion of using instrumental, lounge style versions of popular music - like Lil' Johns "Shots!" or Guns and Roses' "Paradise City"! I loved seeing the look on people's faces when they would recognize the tune and figure out our little game.

Our introduction was similarly untraditional. The bridesmaids and groomsmen were individually introduced to Queen's "We Will Rock You" to help get the rhythm going, and then it faded into Queen's "We Are the Champions" when my husband and I came out (and boy did we ham it up). Matt was up for the challenge and really sold the entire thing - which was key to making it work. Our cousins have since called it "the best wedding introduction ever".

The rest of the reception was equally phenomenal. We were expecting people to start leaving around 9 or so, but it seemed like most of our guests were still there dancing and enjoying everything right up until the last moment.

There's no reason to meet with any other DJs. Shewsical will listen to your needs and your vision and absolutely make it happen. 100% professional and a dream to work with.

Shew-sical was more than we could have hoped for! My husband and I truly believe they set an amazing vibe for our wedding of 110 guests. So many guests (even ones I thought would not dance) were up dancing, clapping their hands and could not get enough!

We hired Shew-sical for all of our wedding needs. They were able to set up down at our ceremony site (a tree in a field) and played romantic, dreamy music as guests entered all the way to my entrance. They provided low-key music as well for cocktail hour and dinner.

Since our wedding, we have been asked numerous times who our DJ was and we have been excited to spread the word about Shew-sical. You cannot go wrong when you hire them and will be completely satisfied.

Side Note: Up until the wedding they were responsive, helpful and kind. Their paperwork is minimal and very easy. They provide song help and lay out the night very simply.

Mine was good looking. We found all of the above in Shew-sical Entertainment! :) Shew-sical is run by Matt & Nicole a husband and wife team that was amazing to work with. I contacted the company with several questions and would get quick responses with excellent explanations of their booking process. I believe Nicole was the main person in charge of the paperwork where as Matt is the one we met in person. He was very flexible as to where to meet and discuss the itinerary of the wedding day. Matt was extremely personable and a pleasure to work with. He had great suggestions for when I was stuck as to what to play and when to play it. We made a list of songs that we wanted played and he worked in some extras that he thought we would enjoy. He asked if there were any songs to not play or any songs that we would be terribly upset if he did not play! He had an array of music. Every few months we would get an email update of the company’s song list and the Top songs. We got several compliments on how great our DJ was. Matt was more than willing to stay longer than what was originally planned. He has great judgment of how the party is going and what type of songs to get the guests on the dance floor and moving! We would definitely recommend
Shew-sical Entertainment to anyone that was looking for a wedding Dj or any type of event that needed music!

I met with Matt when scheduling my event, but worked with Nicole both with song selection and on the actual ceremony and reception. Nicole was an absolute sweetheart to work with and so flexible and helpful. There was a ton of back and forth about the father daughter dance up to the day before the wedding, and I admit I needed a lot of advice and direction in a bunch of different areas. Nicole was very patient and helpful and despite some of my indecision was incredibly kind and understanding. I am so thankful that I worked Shew-sical entertainment and would absolutely recommend them to other brides!

Shew-sical provided DJ services for our wedding and we could not have asked for more from start to finish. Very flexible and accomodating on set up location, playlists, and schedule. Made the perfect balance of songs for all generations and they ran the show with our vision in mind while not overburdening us with details along the way; we were just able to enjoy the day thanks to their help. Volume control and mic audio were perfect for venue. Would highly recommend them for any event for which you're looking for a DJ.

We can't say enough good things about Shew-sical! 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!

Matt was totally amazing at my wedding. He played excellent songs throughout the night and honored my requests for genres that I didn't want played. He had all of the correct ceremony and and wedding dance songs. I even requested that he fade out the 1st dance, mother/son and father/daughter dances after about 2 minutes into the songs and he happily did so. He was amazingly nice and all of my guest loved him. They were all talking about what a great DJ he was! He was also very responsive through email throughout the planning process.

My husband and I planned our MD wedding from TX so we had to do a lot of planning via email which can be disconcerting if you can't ever meet your vendors face-to-face. However, we were ecstatic with Matt's services! All of the planning, contracts, etc. went seamlessly via email! Our favorite part, though, was how attentive they were to what we liked. We wanted to be a bit unique and use some of our favorite modern songs (Metallica, Zac Brown Band, Snow Patrol, etc.) with a classical/instrumental twist during our ceremony and seating. We had been proactive and sent Matt a CD with the music we wanted and what order we wanted it and he coordinated it all perfectly. Then, to our pleasant surprise, he continued the theme through out the cocktail hour and dinner with classical versions of songs from bands such as Led Zepplin and Kiss! Through out the reception, he kept everyone on their feet with oldies through current hits. We couldn't have picked anyone better!

Loved working with Matt and Nicole. They were very responsive to our emails. We lived an hour away from our venue and from them so meeting in person wasn't possible. We had a phone meeting between them and us and it was very productive. I heard nothing but great things about them from other vendors and that made the decision easier. It was a great decision too! They arrived on time, they provided the sound equipment for the ceremony even though we had a string quartet. Matt was very energetic and brought a second DJ with him. He played all the songs I had requested plus some extra awesome songs I had forgotten about! He read the crowd to see what they liked and catered to it. I would definitely recommend this DJ!!!!

He did an awesome job at the wedding, even finding a hard to find song for our entrance. The dance floor was ALWAYS full and it he is a great MC. Best part? The guy had a smile on his face the whole time, it was so great to see!!

People are still talking about the music that was played at our reception! Matt and Nicole are a fantastic husband and wife team who really listen to their clients and understand what guests want for a reception. Nicole was the DJ for the evening, but we met with both her and Matt prior to the wedding. Nicole really understood our must play and do not play list and was able to play or avoid similar songs. She also took on the spot requests that allowed our guests to customize the reception. I also gave them a list of songs to play during dinner. They were wedding songs of couples in attendance and those couples were encouraged to get up and dance and they did! Nicole also did an amazing job of keeping everything running on time and smoothly. It was also nice to not have a DJ that provided a club atmosphere with loud music, thumping base and essentially screaming into the mic. Shew-sical provided the right atmosphere for our amazing day!

Matt and Nicole were great to work with. My husband and I met with Matt in April to set up their services for our wedding in September right before we had to move out of state. They were in communication via email with us and even accommodated us with a conference call the week before. Nicole showed up and was all set up, and even came into our cocktail hour and set up a speaker and music which had not been per-arranged. Me, the bride, got pretty tipsy during my wedding, but Nicole was very professional and dealt with my silliness! Thank you for making my wedding night great!

There is no one better than Matt Shew! (Except maybe his wife, Nicole? I'll let them figure that one out. :) ) We met with Matt a few months before the wedding to work out details and instantly felt comfortable. He made sure to get us thinking about every detail of our reception to have everything go as smoothly as possible on the big day. And it did! Our reception was perfect. He accommodated all of our requests and picked songs that worked perfectly with our crowd and venue. Although we were dealing with an un-air-conditioned barn on a summer day with record-breaking heat (recorded 103 degrees that day...), he still got my guests on the dance floor through the end of the night. All this for a great price. Couldn't be happier.

From the beginning, Matt was very easy to work with. He was extremely personable and and down to earth. Matt did an amazing job for us at our wedding reception!! Prior to the bridal party entrances to the tent, Matt got all of us organized and double checked on names and orders. We had a lot of songs we wanted him to play at specific parts of the evening (cocktail, dinner, dancing) and he did a great job of getting those in. He checked in with us prior to getting the dancing started to make sure that it was okay to do so, and he asked us if we wanted him to play our guests requests...we said definitely, and he happily took requests from our guests the rest of the night. This was awesome because we got a wide variety of music played! He followed the music itinerary perfectly, in terms of playing the specific songs we wanted played during the different events, like the entrances, first dance songs, cake cutting song, garter/bouquet songs, etc. Even through the crazy storm that hit Stone Manor that night, Matt kept our party going!!! We would highly recommend him to anyone!!

I am so pleased with the service provided by Shew-sical Entertainment. Matt Shew was our DJ and he was perfect for the event. Even though the wedding was in the morning/afternoon, he was still able to get people out on the dance floor. He was very flexible and handled all the challenges we threw his was beautifully. The music was perfect and always fit the atmosphere. The was the perfect mix of slow and fast songs. Matt stepped in during the reception at a couple different points and helped things to move smoothly. He was gracious to all our guests and received lots of compliments. A few of my friends are already considering booking Shew-sical. Shew-sical worked within our budget and provided a quality service with great communication.

Shew-sical was recommended by a friend. She got married the same day that a hurricane blew through and she raved about how fun Shew-sical made her reception in spite of the rain. We talked to them on the phone and met them in person the day of the wedding. Matt had never been to our venue before but you would have never known that. He set everything up, provided power for our musician and was very pleasant throughout. He let us know when things would happen, made suggestions for slight changes and was flexible when we changed things last minute. He even made sure the head table wasn't being blasted since we were right in front of the speakers. The only time he disappointed us was when he told us the evening was almost over. If you are looking for young, energetic but laid back DJ's, go with Shew-sical.

Shew-sical was a strong recommendation from our photographer, and they did not disappoint. We had what was, at least in our minds, a fairly complicated agenda, but Matt Shew (who did our wedding) came in, asked a few questions, and then did everything right (even pronouncing everyone's names correctly). He was incredibly flexible, even when we moved our ceremony outside at the last second and he had to jerry-rig his speakers and microphone. Our keyboard didn't have a powercord, which we discovered right when the prelude was supposed to start, but he played perfect music to make everybody comfortable and fit the mood of the wedding completely.

The reception was great. His background music during the cocktail hour and dinner was the perfect mix of fun songs that didn't grab your attention but set the right environment. The introductions and announcements were professional and friendly, not over the top or drawing attention to himself. And once the dancing started, he gave us exactly the right kind of party. We had vaguely said we wanted an old-fashioned '60s and '70s party with modern stuff mixed in, and he came through in spades with the funnest dancing that any of our guests could remember from any previous wedding they'd been to. My husband and I had wanted, as our primary requirement, a DJ that would keep all the guests on the dancefloor the entire time, and Matt went above and beyond our expectations, and the dance floor literally did not die down for two full hours of dancing.

Everybody had a great time, and my husband and I had nothing to worry about, able to just enjoy the wedding knowing that our DJ had the party under control. We cannot recommend Shew-sical highly enough, and are telling all our friends to use them.

Matt was an amazing addition to our day. I was initially concerned about choosing a DJ because I really wanted someone who listened to our ideas for music for the day, but used his/her own experience to read the crowd. Based on a recommendation of a friend, we contact Matt about DJing. From the initial meeting, he was receptive to all of our music suggestions and took our (super-long) music request list to make a really awesome playlist for the reception. People literally danced the entire night and I even heard one relative lament the awesome music because it meant he didn't want to leave the floor for another drink. It was an amazing party and the mix of music was one of the reasons for this. Highly recommend Shew-sical!

Music is very important to us, , and I can not begin to describe how awesome of a job that Shew-sical did in organizing a playlist and even helping us select a few last minute songs we hadn't thought of. Everyone danced even the people who never dance, because of the amazing atmosphere that was created. They have a passion for music and you can tell they truly have fun doing what they are doing. Music can make or break your event, and there is no one better for the job in the area.

One of the hardest things about your wedding day that Lee and I found was the music and who could make our reception as fun as can be. We searched a couple of DJ's and we were not impressed; until we met Matt and Nicole Shew! Shew-Sical Entertainment Services was exactly what we wanted. Matt and Nicole were so down to earth and helped us every step of the way with our reception.

They made the planning process extremely easy and if we did not understand something, we simply e-mailed them and they e-mailed us right back. We got to plan our reception based on what we liked and if we needed help, they always gave us suggestions on what was the most popular, easy or best way to do something. We modified some of our songs for the reception and they worked with us and simply put it on their computer and said we can have whatever we wanted.

They were so helpful and fun! Nicole was at our reception and she always came over to make sure what she was doing was what we wanted. She just wanted to make us happy and wanted to make sure everything was running smoothly. Without her, I would have been a mess! :-) Everything was perfect. I recommend Shew-Sical Entertainment Services for anyone looking for the perfect wedding!

By the time the wedding day came, with all the things a bride has on her mind, the DJ was not one of them (sorry guys) but I knew that my ceremony and reception music were going to be awesome because they had made me feel so comfortable. Even when there was a little change up with some of the songs we had for the dances, Matt was totally flexible and rolled with it - flawlessly. I feel like he was more of a guest at our wedding than "the DJ." Our guests raved about what a good job he did. Their prices are a steal for the quality of service provided.

The Shew family is genuinely nice, and great to work with! From initial meetings, to contracts, to picking out music, to our wedding night, they were a constant we did not have to worry about! Nicole did a great job keeping things going on our wedding day, especially when we lost track of time! She was a blast and even came on the dance floor to teach us the cha cha slide!
I can also now say, that as a guest at a wedding, I enjoyed having Nicole just as much as a DJ!

I have been to 23 weddings in 5 years and am picky, so I crossed out 178 of those songs. Instead I provided some songs Id like played and an idea of what I was looking for, they had every songs I requested (some were rare) and they played exactly what I was looking for - the dance floor was packed! I got numerous comments about how good the music was etc. Also, they did a phenomenal job at our outside ceremony, somehow finding a convenient outside outlet, instead of running a 50ft extension cord. There were also lots of extras, like playing our cocktail music at the ceremony site for those of us there missing the party to take photos. Due to a quick rain, I delayed the outside ceremony 15mins - no problem. That pushed the whole evening off, but no problem there either; they worked with other vendors to adjust the schedule to when I was ready. Very easy to work with, accommodating and professional. I would highly recommend!

I would HIGHLY recommend Matt and Nicole Shew to future brides. Unlike other vendors, they immediately responded to any questions i had, were very professional, on time, and Nicole (who was the DJ for our wedding) was super sweet and very easy to deal with. Their prices are reasonable and you get alot for your money. Overall, they were a pleasure to do buissness with.

He made my wedding such a great party and everyone talked about how great the music was! Matt was always prompt in response to my email and concerns. He takes the extra time to make your wedding unique to your needs and allows you to help plan what music will be played at your event. I would highly recommend Shew-sical for your wedding or event!

Shewsical (Matt Shew) was a great choice for a DJ. I was able to choose my reception music completely from start to finish. He played everything I wanted him to and even played one song twice after my husband asked him to play it again. We also decided to extend our reception an hour and he was willing to stay the extra hour. He has a great personality and was so easy to work with. I would highly recommend him.

Matt did a great job DJ-ing our wedding! We used him for the ceremony + reception and everything ran very smoothly. He even rearranged his schedule that day to prioritize our wedding to make sure all would go well from beginning to end, and it did! He played everything we requested, didn't play anything on our do-not-play list, and chose a great playlist on his own for everything else once he gauged the crowd. He is personable, down-to-earth, professional, experienced, and reasonably priced .... which made him the perfect DJ for our wedding!

We held our wedding at Ceresville Mansion and Shew-sical has a great relationship with them, which made the logistics very streamlined since they are both so familiar with each other. So if you're considering a wedding at Ceresville, Matt is a great choice for a DJ there!

Although my wedding was 1 year ago, I feel like I should give all of my vendors their due. So a HUGE RAVE for Matt Shew at Shew-sical Entertainment. We were referred to this husband and wife DJ team through some friends of ours who had recently used them at their wedding. We communicated over email first, and they gave us an AMAZING deal. Matt was able to meet with my (now) husband and I at a time/place that was convenient for us to discuss exactly what we wanted. Although we had a traditional wedding, we are geeks at heart and had a lot of movie/TV soundtrack selections we wanted played during dinner. I wasn't sure if Matt was going to be able to find everything we wanted, but he definitely came through!

From the moment we arrived at our reception, until the very last dance, Matt was right on target with the music and played ALL of the songs (even obscure ones) that I had requested. He also made my husband's night when he was able to find our (apparently hard to find) entrance song.

Matt Shew was also very professional in both appearance and demeanor (both of which I appreciate!). Lots of good energy without being too intrusive. I would highly recommend Shew-sical Entertainment for any bride getting married in the DC/Metro area.

Very pleased with Matt's services - he was completely professional, showed up early, set up without a hitch, kept our wedding "on track" in terms of timeline and stuck to our requests / no play lists. It was easy to hammer out details with him - he was very straightforward, no-nonsense and once he had a sense for what we were looking for it's exactly what we got. His equipment fit the space we were in and he made solid efforts to make sure folks were having a good time on the floor.

Matt and Nicole were wonderful. They were professional, flexible, a great value, and pleasant to work with. Before the wedding, Nicole was always quick to respond (even when I asked for a last minute microphone to be available for the ceremony).

Matt was our DJ for the ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception. I heard almost every song from our list, the "special" songs were all perfect, and our guests were all on the dance floor (even the ones who claim to never dance).

I highly recommend Shew-sical. They offer a great service, for a great value.

The DJ that Shew-sical provided to us was great! He sought me out numerous times throughout the night to ensure that everything was being done in the order that was requested. There were numerous things that needed to be changed throughout the night (i.e. we decided not to do the garter toss) and he accommodated the change of schedule. Due to our dinner running late, there was not enough time at the end of the evening to include all of the specials dances that we had requested. The DJ worked with us to determine which dances we would like to do based on the time that we had left. It was great that he was able to work with us throughout the night! They even provided a CD of special songs that were played throughout the night that we could listen to on our anniversary. I highly recommend using Shew-sical for any event!

Matt from Shew-sical Entertainment was absolutely fantastic to work with. He made our ceremony and reception very special. Many of our guests commented on how wonderful our music was and how well it fit with the rest of our wedding. My husband and I picked very little of the reception music ourselves and left most of it to Matt; I am glad we did because he got everyone up and dancing for the entire reception. He helped keep everything organized and he picked the perfect piece of music for my husband and myself when we weren't sure what to do for our entrance to the reception. I would highly recommend Matt and Shew-sical Entertainment to anyone who is in need of a DJ for a wedding or any other event!

WE LOVE SHEWSICAL ENTERTAINMENT!
Matthew Shew Dj’ed my brother’s wedding so Shewsical Entertainment was our first and last DJ inquiry when it came time to plan our own wedding. Matt’s lovely wife, Nicole was the DJ for our wedding. She was wonderful! My husband and I are very particular about music. We had some very special requests to go along with old favorites and Nicole was completely accommodating. She found every song we requested, even the weird stuff that no one has ever heard of. She made us a CD of all the music that was played, which we listen to all the time and has become a very special keepsake from our wedding day. Because of Nicole’s ability to read our guests and follow the musical mood of the reception, we had the best dance party EVER. She kept our guests, young and old, on their feet all night long. It was a BLAST!
Nicole was always accessible; we never had to wait for a return phone call. We did not have to worry about a thing.
Any bride would be lucky to have Nicole of Shewsical Entertainment on her wedding day team. She was awesome!

Every interaction we had with Shewsical was polite, professional, and friendly. Shew-sical did an amazing job at our wedding and we will recommend them to any couple looking for a DJ. Matts wife Nicole was also very nice and helpful any time we spoke with her. Grade A class act company!!!!

I loved having Shew-sical Entertainment DJ for my wedding and would highly recommend them to anyone. My sister had Matt DJ at her wedding and they did such a great job that I knew they had to be at my wedding too. When I contacted Matt, he was so accommodating and even came to our home to meet with us. He went over the contract with us and gave us a list of music to help our music selection go more easily. We already had some songs selected and when we asked him about a particular, unusual, song we wanted played, he knew the song and artist right away. We were so pleased at how professional Matt was throughout the whole wedding process. He made sure our guests had a great time and I had nothing but compliments about him. I now work for a venue where I often see Matt and Shew-sical entertainment and I can tell you that they still to do a fantastic job. I will continue to sing their praises to anyone looking for a DJ for an event.

Shew-sical Entertainment was really easy to work with and had the best value for their services in terms of price for the quality you're getting. Both Matt and Nicole were both professional but laid back. There was no hard selling and they were willing to work with what we wanted within our reception timeframe. I didn't want a DJ who was obnoxious or cheesey, and Matt assured me that even if he wasn't the DJ for our wedding, he's very selective about who he lets represent their company and our DJ would be neither. Mike Appenzellar was our DJ, and he was in fact neither of those things. He did a great job at our reception, esp. rolling with some last minute changes because of family drama or technical difficulties and having all the difficult bridal party names to pronounce. Everyone I talked to said how much fun it was and how great the music was. Also, we didn't have a last dance song previously picked out, but he made a great call on reading how into our first dance song (Peter Cetera's "Glory of Love") everyone was and making it the last dance song. Having our friends and family circle around us and sing along with us was one of my favorite moments of the day and a perfect cap to an already wonderful day. I would definitely recommend his and Shew-sical's services.

Matt from Shew-sical was the DJ for my wedding and I couldn't have asked for anyone better! Without much guidance from me, he came up with an amazing playlist and had no trouble finding some of the lesser known songs I requested. My wedding was a Sunday evening and I was surprised to see how many people stayed until the very end, thanks to the awesome dancing atmosphere Matt created! He played the perfect balance of songs that kept both young and old on the dance floor. And on top of being a great DJ, his services were also very cost effective. Highly recommend!

When my husband and I sat down with Matt during our planning meeting, we gave him just a short list of requests (and anti-requests!) for the ceremony and reception music. We told him to just get people out dancing and having fun....neither of us are in to dancing and we just really wanted to throw a good time for our guests. You couldn't drag me off the dance floor though! I think I am one of the few brides I have talked to who had an absolute blast at her own wedding and I think a lot of it is thanks to Matt.
My only complaint is the pre-planning. We booked Shew-sical over a year before our wedding date. At about a month before the wedding, I was on a mass email to all the upcoming brides to fill out a planning sheet and all of the details for the wedding. I was a little freaked that they got the year wrong for my wedding date but the email had just been an error. However, when our planning meeting finally took place a few weeks before the wedding, I didn't feel like he was really prepared, though. I was leading the conversation and direction of the plans. I was lucky I was such a planner and had also read plenty of other positive reviews and had trust that everything would turn out fine and it did. It turned out even better than I expected. We had a few special requests that we wanted to coordinate with the music and photographer, and he and Matt kept in touch throughout the night and coordinated it all for us.
I definitely recommend Shew-sical to anyone getting married in the Frederick, Baltimore or DC area.

Matt was wonderful every step of the planning. He provided us a great service for the value and was professional every step of the way. He got the timing perfect for music for our ceremony, and did a great job "feeling" out the crowd for music selection and keeping the party going during the reception. I had one guest say "He wouldn't play the song I requested!' but was glad, as I asked for no requests, especially for specific songs, and was pleased that he didn't let pushy guests get their way. Also he was professional in every delivery, the entire time, unlike other DJ services I have seen.

Matt and Nicole were great to work with! Matt was the DJ for our wedding, and our primary contact with Shew-sical. He answered all of our questions and even provided suggestions for the order of events (like toasts and cake-cutting). Matt introduced us to the Vitamin String Quartet and played many of their versions of pop songs during dinner, which our guests loved. At the wedding, Matt played a good variety of music, keeping younger and older guests entertained. The best part was not having to worry about the music, because we knew Matt would gauge the crowd and keep the party going.

These folks were great from the initial meeting with them through the reception. They were able to play all the songs I requested and it seemed to be seamless with the way they worked with the reception people to coordinate everything. we were very pleased with their service.

Matt and his team were great. They played everything we wanted and nothing we had on our no-play list. As MC, Matt was personable but low key and in the background forth most part. He kept the whole evening on track without being pushy. No planner was needed for that. You don't hear much from Shewsical leading up to the date and they don't have a fancy online music selection system like I've heard ofnfrom some of my friends, but very happy with the service.

Shew-sical did a great job with our wedding. They were responsive and really flexible when it came to hearing songs we wanted to hear, which was important to us because we both love music. Todd, our DJ, was on-time, friendly, knew how to get the party started and kept us posted on upcoming events (first dance, bouquet toss) so we could plan accordingly. There were only a few little snafus, but we were all having so much fun they were minor and hardly noticeable! Thanks, Shew-sical!

We really enjoyed working with the Shew family. Nicole did a wonderful job with our ceremony music and a fantastic job with our reception. Would highly recommend Shew-sical to anyone looking to get the most out of their wedding or event musically.

Shew-sical did a great job with the music for our ceremony, cocktail hour and reception. We found them online and had only been in contact via email prior to the wedding. This made us a little nervous, but they were extremely professional and responsive. They worked seamlessly at our venue and although there were a few sound glitches with our pastors mic at our outside ceremony (which they resolved quickly), the rest of the evening was great. They adjusted quickly to changes and kept our non-dancing friends and family members on the dance floor all night!

Nicole and Matt were great! On the day of my wedding, they came early because we had to change our ceremony from outside to inside causing them to set up 30 minutes earlier. They agreed without a problem! Before any formal dance, she asked if Mike and/or I were ready - I loved this! She checked on us throughout the night to make sure we were happy and if there were anything else we wanted to hear. She even bought a special request song for my uncle on the spot! A surprise gift to us, a wedding CD with our favorite songs that we will treasure forever! Thank you Matt and Nicole.

When we first inquired, we were assigned Nicole as our DJ, so we met with her and signed our contract. A few months later, we were informed that Nicole is no longer available and Andy will be our DJ instead. We were a bit disappointed with their service at this point about the switch. However, Andy turned out to be great! We gave him a list of our songs that we like to play and also let him use his discretion for the night. He kept everyone dancing on the dance floor and we had so much fun! Andy also kept us on schedule throughout the night! Thanks Andy!

The thing that really bugged us about ther DJ service for the night was the transitions. There were several times when a certain activity ended or a music selection ended and there was this akward time of no music. The transition time that the DJ was in control of could have been improved to help the flow of the night. I do have to say that between the music selection we provided and the rest we left open for the DJ to use he creativity made a great combination because there were people of all ages on the dance floor all night. So although we were not happy about the music transitions I think the guest enjoyed the music selections. The only other thing that could have been improved was the communication in change of DJ's. We had a great meeting with Matt and he did inform us that he could miss the wedding due to a newborn but since we had not received any updates we were surprised to see an unfamiliar face. I think we received a great price and they stayed true to our wants and concerns with the music that was played which was good.

I am very unhappy with Nicole from Shew-sical. First, I have to say that this is the only vendor that we didn’t interview several providers, and boy do I regret it. My venue coordinator recommended this company and their name was mentioned by other vendors too, so we trusted that this was a safe bet. We initially met with Matt and he seemed nice and knowledgeable. We signed the contract on the spot and we were happy to not have to drive to Frederick several more times for DJ interviews. He did tell us that his wife, Nicole would be our DJ for the night. We had no objections.
On the day of the wedding, Nicole showed up on time and set up. First wrong move – she began 30 mins earlier than specified on the contract and then later said she was going to leave 30 mins early unless we paid an additional $50. She said that she had to start early because the guests were in the area for cocktail hour. I told her she was not authorized to make that call and the contract clearly indicated the start time. She actually argued with me – the bride – on my wedding day about cost issues with the contract. Unprofessional! We could have handled that the following business day. The reception actually ended an hour earlier than we planned because people were leaving so we didn’t have to pay the extra money that she wanted, but according to my calculations, I think that means Shew-sical should send ME a check for $50 for being able to leave 30 mins early. I bet in that case, they would use the excuse that the start and end times were stipulated in the contract – but that argument surely didn’t work for me with the issue of the early start time….. Secondly, she came back to where we were lined up to get pronunciations of the names for the wedding party and parents, which was great. But then she badly mispronounced half of them anyway. Third thing – we asked for classical music/light jazz for our dinner time listening. She played elevator music. I’m so serious. I do not consider the cheesy instrumental version of Cyndi Lauper, “Time After Time” neither classical nor jazz, and I assure you that was not the only cheesy elevator music to be played. And at that time when I wanted to complain, she was nowhere to be found – it was like she put a cheesy elevator music CD on and left. Fourth thing – (and a BIG thing) she downloaded the WRONG SONG for my father-daughter dance and began to play it. One of my bridesmaids happened to have the right one on her iPod so Nicole was able to download it and play it after we had the mother-son dance take place first while the song was downloading. Fifth, the anniversary song was cut short – it literally stopped while the last couple was still dancing. Sixth, although they played some of the songs we requested (and thankfully didn’t play any of the songs we didn’t like), she played songs by the same artist back to back on more than one occasion. We like the Black Eyes Peas and Usher a lot, but please mix it up! Then there were other songs that we put on our list from the year we met that we were hoping to hear that never got played. Seventh, we had been promised that all music they played would be the edited versions (we were concerned about curse words) by Matt at our first meeting. This was not the case. Several curses were being played in at least three songs, there were kids and grandmas there – we don’t want that language played at our wedding! Eighth, one of my guests told me that Nicole told him she hadn’t heard of half of the songs on the list that we requested. If you are a DJ, you really should know SOME of these songs considering that most of the songs we requested are top 40 Pop songs that are played over and over on radio stations such as 99.5. That’s why they call it Pop, because it’s popular and it’s enjoyed by a large population! And if you don’t know it by the way of your business, you should listen to them and see if there are curse words, and maybe make sure that they are the right songs before showing up. Do your homework! I don’t think Nicole is a DJ, she is just a person who was taught how to press the buttons on the fancy equipment that they use to play mp3s. The only reason they even got 2 stars is because they showed up on time and had speakers and for that, we did not have to sit in silence at my wedding reception.

Shew-sical Entertainment Services responded with the following comments:

This review is filled with completely false information. First, I would like to offer the following: I received numerous compliments from guests that evening. The groom was on the dance floor for 90% of the event with his friends and said, “thank you” at the end of the night. I received this email from a guest, who sang for the couple, after the event: Good Afternoon Nicole, I just wanted to reach out to you and say thank you again for working with me. It all went so lovely and you did an amazing job. We had a great time and you were so professional and pleasant to work with. I will be sure to bookmark your information for future consideration. Take care and get some rest. Kind regards, [Guest]. As far as the “complaints”, I will address each issue with its incorrect information in the order it was given. 1.) Our contract does clearly state times. It also states “If guests arrive early by 15 minutes or more, the client(s) or delegated contract person must decide if services should begin early” and “In the event that the client(s) and/or contact person is not available to make this decision, Shew-sical Entertainment Services reserves the right to make the decision for the client(s), and the client agrees to whatever Shew-sical Entertainment Services decides.” The guests arrived for cocktails 35-40 minutes early, and the clients were not available. When they returned, the bride confronted me about starting early. I never argued with her, but explained the contents of our contract. 2.) I did go over all of the names and pronunciations before introducing the bridal party. The bride thanked me for doing so, and they were all relatively easy names to pronounce. I can’t say with 100% certainty that I pronounced every name correctly, but nothing was said about it that day. They did have a last minute change in introductions, but nothing that would cause me to stumble or stammer. 3.) The clients had asked for classical/light jazz for cocktails and dinner. The “cheesy elevator music version of Cyndi Lauper’s ‘Time After Time’” to which she refers is performed by Miles Davis, who is debatably the most famous instrumental jazz musician of our time. The rest of the music by Branford Marsalis, John Coltrane, Chet Baker, etc. is definitely within the criteria of music that was requested. Also, if she had wanted to find me, she didn’t look very hard. I could see her from where I was sitting eating a sandwich with the other vendors (photographer and videographer), on the outside balcony. The only thing between the couple and myself was a pane of glass. 4.) We had two versions of the song she requested. The version she wanted, and had not specified, was a version from a “video posting website”. It was not a version found on a “music downloading website”. The groom told me where I could find it, and we searched for it at that point. We could not find it where he said it would be. One of the guests had the specific version that the bride wanted on an mp3 player, and I was able to accommodate her request after playing the mother/son dance. After playing it, the guest told me that the bride was “laid back” and that she was sure that it wasn’t a “big deal”. Again, in the paperwork, she never specified it being on a certain website. 5.) The song for the anniversary dance was “cut short”, because the final couple was on the dance floor. This is the way it always works. We find out who has been married longest, and then ask them for “words of advice” for the bride and groom. The songs for bouquet toss, garter removal, garter toss, and garter replacement were cut short as well. They are only to be used for the time in which they are needed. The paperwork did not specify that the entire song was to play, or we would have played it. 6.) I have a playlist from the reception, and know specifically what was played. The only way I played artists back to back was if they were featured on another artist’s song. I never played Black Eyed Peas or Usher in sequence, as suggested. There were 2 or more songs by 5 different artists. The three songs on the playlist that were marked as “must plays” were played, and I was never made aware of the significance of any others. In fact, the bride never spoke a word to me after the father/daughter dance. 7.) On the provided paperwork, the bride wrote “edited please if possible” by one of the “must play” songs. There was strong sexual content in the majority of her requests, her guests’ requests, and songs that were on the radio station playlist she suggested. I used radio edits, and “clean album versions” that aren’t always “clean” to our standards, but they were her specific requests. I played 3 of the 5 requests from guests, with the other 2 being too “dirty” to play, even with an “edited” version. 8.) This is nothing more than hearsay. I actually told the guest that I wasn’t familiar with all of the words to the song that he was requesting. It was one that wasn’t acceptable after listening to it. The majority of the requested songs were actually hip-hop and rap, not pop as suggested. The definition of pop music, as found on Wikipedia, is “Pop music (a term that originally derives from an abbreviation of "popular") is usually understood to be commercially recorded music, often oriented towards a youth market, usually consisting of relatively short, simple love songs utilizing technological innovations to produce new variations on existing themes. Pop music has absorbed influences from most other forms of popular music, but as a genre is particularly associated with the rock and roll and later rock style”. Popular music is many genres, not just what is played on the specific radio station to which she referred. Her definition is used to serve her purpose only, and is not correct. I’m not sure why the bride “had it in for me”, but this review was the first I had heard any negative feedback from the event. She was/is even a “friend” of mine (& Shew-sical) on one of the social networking sites for several months now, after this review was written. Nicole Shew on 07 Jan 2011

I had Nicole as my DJ for my wedding and I have to say that I was not very happy. I read all the great reviews and felt very confident about going with shew-sical, however 2 weeks before the wedding I realized that I had not heard from them to set up my final song selection and arrangements etc so I e-mailed them and set up a final consultation 5 days before my wedding and Nicole was unable to make it so Matt came which was fine but then on the day of Nicole had no idea what was going on. We had informed Matt at our consultation that our wedding would be outside and he said that would not be a problem and they could plug into the venue's system, well on the day of Nicole informed me that she could not do this she said " I can not plug in outside I only brought my wireless system for my convenience so I would not have to pack up 2 shows" well did she forget this was my day, it was for me not convenience for her! I informed Nicole that Matt told us this would be no problem and she needed to contact him. Later Nicole came into my room and informed me that I misunderstood Matt however, they have microphones that I could rent for $50.00 to use outside. This to me was not acceptable because I have already paid them to bring their equipment. My mom then talked to Nicole and she agreed that I could use the microphone free of charge and that I needed to realize she was doing me a favor. She also said that they waived my set up fee which they did not just waive it to be nice I had a coupon for 50.00 off a 4hr package which waived that fee. I was very unhappy with shew-sical and the way that I was treated on my wedding day, Nicole simply acted like she did not want to be there and did not want to help, several of my guests commented on this as well as the employees at the venue, I would not reccomend shew-sical to future brides!!!

Shew-sical Entertainment Services responded with the following comments:

Dear Potential Client(s),
Thank you for taking the time to read this review. We take our clients’ satisfaction and the quality of our services very seriously here at Shew-sical Entertainment. We received the following compliments/praise on the day of this wedding:
“The music was great!” -mother of the bride
“Thank you so much for everything!” -groom
We believe the reason (for the bride not hearing from us) may have been the fact that she changed her email from the time of the original contract information being submitted. After we sent our event finalization email on September 6, 2012, we never heard from her until October 6, 2012. At this time, we were given the option of meeting on the 15th (six days before the wedding), because it was the only weekday time offered. We accommodated the meeting and discussed music, equipment, and all charges which were applicable. When the venue was not able to fulfill the promised microphone requests, we were expected to do so for free. We also happily agreed to last minute changes/additions on their wedding day, including a daddy-daughter dance for the groom and his girls.
There are always two sides to every story. Rather than try to dispute all of the points this bride has made, all we ask is that you look at all the other reviews we have. Thank you.
Sincerely, Matt & Nicole Shew & the Shew-sical Entertainment Services staff
