Dan + Shay is the moniker for pop country duo Dan Smyers and Shay Mooney. As vocalists and songwriters out of Nashville, they have released a number of chart-topping singles in the past few years. Speechless is perhaps their most popular love song, and it has quickly become a favorite among fans of country music.

The song is so ideal for weddings that Dan + Shay themselves created a music video featuring footage from each of their own weddings. If it’s good enough for the artists themselves, it certainly makes an excellent choice for a first dance song. See our songs.

At DJ Cutt Entertainment, we manage so many different kinds of events in the Pacific Northwest, that we’ve had to streamline the various gear set ups according to the needs of the specific event. An indoor wedding will have very different requirements than an outdoor wedding, for instance. A dance party will require lighting, sound, and other visuals that are completely unlike what you need for a wedding or funeral ceremony. The following is a comprehensive overview of the various set ups we typically provide for our event clients, making it easy to understand what is involved with set ups and takedowns. Normally, this will be handled by our experienced on site staff, but we make this information available for anyone who might benefit from it.
