Figuring out how to get all your guests to boogey down on the dance floor all night long can be challenging so relying on a professional, experienced DJ or band is important to ensuring your reception will be worry-free and entertaining.
Matt and Nicole Shew, of Shew-sical Entertainment Services, provide fun and funky DJ services to area weddings and promise “to provide high quality services with the personal touch and professional care every client deserves.” The cleverly named Shew-sical, based in Frederick, has provided DJ services for several years and has serviced over 350 weddings in the past three years.
“[Couples] should book with a professional DJ, who is capable of providing them with a memorable and worry-free wedding day,” Matt said.
Matt, who is also president of the Frederick Area Bridal Network, started Shew-sical after he graduated college and later Nicole joined the business to help DJ/MC to meet the demand for a larger quantity of high quality shows. Shortly after, Shew-sical continued to blossom and the couple decided to bring in several other DJs/MCs in to their Shew-sical family to help them accommodate more weddings. Matt said currently, Shew-sical can accommodate four to five weddings per day and they work mostly in the Maryland, Virginia, Pennsylvania, West Virginia and Washington, D.C., markets, but added they’ll travel anywhere the business takes them.
They’re mutual love of music brought them into the business and Nicole said it’s rewarding to be a part of a couple’s wedding day.
“We enjoy watching everyone react to the music, dancing and having a good time,” she said. “We love being able to help everyone enjoy the event.”
It’s all about the style …
From the golden oldies to current hits, Matt said Shew-sical offers a database of roughly 250,000 songs and always updating and adding the list.
The song choices are vast, but Matt said Shew-sical’s primary focus at an event is making sure the night is running smooth and the guests are entertained.
“We try our best to give each couple specifically what they are looking for in an MC ‘style,’ ” he said. “We are usually keeping guests and vendors informed of events and making sure everyone enjoys the wedding, without being overbearing on the microphone.”
It’s all about the cost …
Matt said Shew-sical bases all weddings on a package of four hours for $650 with any overtime hours costing an additional $100 per hour or $50 per half hour.
“Our standard package includes a full service DJ/MC (all music and announcements), coordination with all other vendors, a wireless microphone and the ability to personalize music and DJ/MC style as much or as little as the client would like,” he said.
Matt said Shew-sical books as far as two years in advance but most of the bookings are within one year of the wedding date. Shew-sical requires a 50% deposit and signed contract to book the date with the remainder due two weeks prior to the wedding date.
