Entertainment is perhaps the most important part of any wedding or event. Not only are entertainers responsible for keeping the guests engaged in the moment, but they also must serve as Master of Ceremonies, event coordinator, Maitre’ d and mind reader. They must be able to read a crowd quickly, adapt to what they crave and then exceed their wildest expectations, and that is just the day of! Let’s rewind a bit.
Weddings and events take months, sometimes years to plan. You put your heart and soul into every little detail from table linens to catering selections and beyond. You want to make sure everything is perfect and your guests will be completely awe-struck at the celebration that you have planned! Music, lighting and media are all part of what dictates the MOOD of a venue and when it comes to setting it, you want it set right!
When you book DJ Chewy, you get DJ Chewy, a man with over 400 events of experience and the distinct ability to capture the hearts of any audience from the most intimate wedding receptions to the largest Las Vegas arenas. With on air stints at both 102.5 FM in Saginaw and 105.5 FM in Flint, DJ Chewy knows what it takes to grab attention and create a vibe that leaves legs sore from dancing and faces tired from smiling. 2 Michigan DJ Olympic People’s Champion awards, a 2016 Weddingwire Couple's Choice Award and multiple gold records for performance DJ’ing prove that he has the ability to do more than just push buttons and hope a song works. His music production skills make sure that your event is truly one of a kind and that any ideas you have for choreographed dances, custom music or a truly eye opening grand entrance go above and beyond what you could ever possibly imagine.
But YOUR event is about YOU and YOUR guests, and that’s why DJ Chewy ensures that every event has a personal touch. He helps you develop the mood of your event from the beginning stages of planning till your guests chant, “One more song!” Brides, Coordinator and Directors can all agree that the ability to create a custom experience is quintessential in creating a lasting expression and YOUR event is always his top priority.
Where do I begin? DJ Chewy was amazing all around, he was flexible when it came to changes and on the fly adjustments he also kept our dance floor packed. The feedback that we have received on DJ Chewy is all amazing but most important people asking for his contact information. He was able to mix all types of genres and make all guests want to dance all night long. You would be missing out on a great time if you don't choose DJ Chewy!
Kelllie and Derek Stinchcomb
"When looking for a wedding DJ, you want certain things: 1. Someone who will listen to your likes and dislikes for music. 2. Someone that will keep the dance floor full all night. 3. An entertainer and a friend. DJ Chewy is all of these things and more. DJ Chewy worked with us on what we wanted for our wedding and what the mood would be. I told him certain songs we did not want and the songs we must have. My dad and I always dance to “Hey Ya” and we wanted to incorporate it into the father/daughter dance. DJ Chewy went from the slow song we picked out right into “Hey Ya”. Once he did it, the whole place got up and danced to with us. The rest of the night, our dance floor was so full, it was overflowing into the seating area. We even had wedding crashers come in because they heard our music from the bar area of the hotel and it made them just want to dance. Our reception had a great balance of oldies and new music because that’s what we wanted. DJ Chewy is more than just a DJ, he becomes part of the most amazing day of your life. Our wedding was over two years ago and our guests still talk about DJ Chewy and the best dance party ever."
Kelsey and Andrew Schneider
"Chewy is an amazing DJ! He worked my wedding ceremony and reception and I was extremely happy with his work. He helped me set up my song list well before the event and gave me great advice on what works and what doesn’t work. The day of my wedding, Chewy was the first to arrive and the last to leave. His confidence and relaxed attitude calmed my nerves and allowed me to just have fun!!! With his music style and flawless transitions, the dance floor was packed all night. I had many guests comment on how great my DJ was. Chewy goes above and beyond and I recommend him for ANY and ALL events!!! "
Karleigh and Tony Sleeper
"I recently had the pleasure of working with Chewy in creating a mix for the dance team I coach. I gave Chewy a theme idea for the dance I was choreographing, and he created a mix that was even better than anything I could have imagined. Chewy truly excels at what he does; I still receive compliments on the music he created for my team! Given his unprecedented talent, along with his great communication skills, I would recommend working with Chewy to absolutely anyone!"
Erika Peruski: Byron Center Varsity Dance Coach
"I met Chewy 3 years before my wedding. After to speaking to him I knew instantly I wanted him to DJ my wedding when I was to get married. Casey put on an amazing show. There was not one person sitting in their seats the entire night. Leading up to our amazing wedding I had a surprise for my fiance'. He not only helped carry that out but also carried an awesome surprise for me from my hubby as well. I wanted to surprise my husband with a reception dress before our first dance. Casey was so excited to announce he kept 2 secrets. My husband wrote and recorded our first dance song. AMAZING is all I can say about Casey. He's not only a great DJ but now a great friend. I would recommend his services to anyone."
Brandon & Brandy Hook
"Just a quick note to say thank you so much for doing such an amazing job on the music & lighting for Colton's Cause three years running!! You do a wonderful job and the music is just fantastic every single year. I can't count how many people have come up to me throughout the years and said how great you are!! Colton's Cause wouldn't be what it is without you, and I can't thank you enough for it! I will definitely be recommending you to anyone and everyone who ask me for a referral."
Tammy Miller, Director: Colton's Cause
"Casey went above and beyond for our wedding! His professionalism and accuracy was incredible! The songs during the wedding were completely perfect and he was able to whip up a perfect song for my girls to walk down the aisle with when I had no idea what to play and was a bit overwhelmed! His selection of songs during the reception was perfect and he was very interactive with my guest! He also evaluated his audience and plays songs according to their likes and needs! I would recommend him a million times over and have made a great friendship with him!"
Szanadue and Chip Butler
"We hired Chewy to do the music entertainment at our wedding. Given the fact that we live in Utah and our wedding was in Michigan, we had to rely on word of mouth to find a great DJ. Oh boy we were not disappointed! He worked with us in advance to get the music that we wanted for the processional and recessional, as well as any specific songs that we wanted to be played during the reception. We had a few requests for some songs that were not mainstream, but he never even batted an eye and got exactly what we wanted. He kept the energy going throughout the reception and was very accommodating when our guests had requests. We would definitely recommend him to anyone and everyone for any event!"
Chris & Shannon Taylor
“Casey your work is very high quality. When you've made cuts in music for me they are always flawless. I wouldn't choose or trust anyone else to cut my music. Thank you for your time and hard work.”
