Paul, thank you so much for providing the best DJ/MC services for my wedding on 5-28-16. I appreciated how early you arrived to the site, as well as how flexible you were when it came to "rolling with the punches," since the photographer and other events took much longer than we... Read More both expected! The music choices were excellent, and I recieved many compliments on both the music and sound quality. Providing the mic for the officiant during the ceremony also helped my guests hear the entire ceremony which is exactly what I wanted. I can tell that you truly love what you do, and you are the most thorough and professional DJ I have come to know!! Lightening-fast with email communication, and before we even chose you as our DJ you spent 90 minutes with us on a Skype video call painting a very vivid picture of what your events are like and how they operate. This was the best money spent towards our wedding!

Overall, we had a great experience with DJ Paul Entertainment. Our DJ was Dom, Paul's son, and he kept the dance floor packed all night! I work in the dance field, and many of my guests were dancers or former dancers, so having good music and a hopping floor was very important... Read More to me. From my initial conversation with Paul (before we booked with him), I could tell that he was professional and knew his stuff! He was very open and honest with us throughout the process. I took requests from the guests on their wedding reply cards, and had quite a few of my own as well, and I was impressed with how many got played over the course of the evening (there were A LOT of requests!). Dom was great at changing the vibe throughout the course of the evening based on who was on the floor - classic dance songs early in the night, then progressing to more pop/hip-hop songs later in the evening when it was more of the younger crowd. His MC-ing was very professional, and he added personal touches here and there that helped make the event feel like our own, such as saying which songs were the groom's request, calling my dad and his friends to the floor for their favorite song, etc. There were only a few small things - one song got played twice (but it was a great song so everyone laughed it off and danced anyway), and the coordination with the venue could have been a little better (although I suspect this had more to do with the venue than with Dom). BUT we had an absolutely amazing time - Dom had nearly every guest on the dance floor at some point or another, and he was really a pleasure to work with. I definitely recommend DJ Paul Entertainment!

Overall, my husband and I had a fantastic time at our wedding and were thrilled to finally tie the knot. Unfortunately, we cannot express the same enthusiasm and excitement over the services that DJ Paul provided. First, and most importantly, I must emphasize that Paul and Dom... Read More were very supportive and active in the months of planning before the wedding. They provided very helpful documents and lists for music we wanted to play. When we met to discuss event details and specifics regarding songs, we met exclusively with Dom as he was going to be the only DJ present. However, shortly before the wedding, we received an email from Paul conveying that Paul and Dom would be working the wedding together. My husband and I believe that if Dom had DJ’d for the wedding without Paul we would not have had so many issues. Our biggest concern was that many people, especially other vendors at the wedding, expressed that the DJ was being ‘overbearing’ and ‘bullied' people. He was much too abrasive when telling people to line up, shouting commands at people, and being incredible inflexible with changes to the schedule. On multiple occasions he corrected the photographer on which shots to get, and commanded my husband (the groom) to run around the ballroom to find people for photos. Another issue that we had with the DJ was the song choices themselves. They catered to a much younger crowd, and hardly any of the songs we had on our ‘play’ list were actually played during the reception. This was especially true when he did not play the song Sweet Caroline when we sang happy birthday to my mother (this had been specially requested). Something that we found highly inappropriate was that DJ Paul shared in giving us marriage advice at the reception. Giving this some context- we loved the idea of the Anniversary Dance, where couples dance and the DJ slowly releases couples who have been married X amount of years. We had agreed that we would present the longest lasting couple with champagne and the DJ would ask them to give us marriage advice. Instead, the DJ asked the top 3 qualifying couples to all give us advice. Paul then proceeded to give us his own words of wisdom on marriage. Unfortunately, he told us ‘never to go to bed angry’- something my husband and I are incredibly opposed to as we believe if you sleep on an argument, you are more level-headed the next day and can solve the issue more clearly. We were very offended that he saw fit to give us advice on our marriage in such a public platform. As said earlier, we worked very well with Dom and we believe the wedding would have been much better if Paul had remained on as the manager, rather than DJ. I would not refer this DJ service to friends or family.
