Paul and his team assisted our company during a parade celebration which required them to secure all of the equipment to the top portion of a bus.  Paul and his team stayed in constant contact throughout the planning stages, suggested alternatives to ease the process and executed extremely well!  Great music selection - listened to all of our suggestions and took requests!The day went off without a hitch thanks to the professionalism and talent of Paul and his team.  We will definitely be using them again and again!

DJ Shannon was the DJ at my daughter’s graduation party from high school. The crowd had a mix of adults and older teens. He is a genuinely upbeat and friendly person. He was very chill and read the crowd perfectly to keep the energy going. Would highly recommend! More...

This was our second year hiring Paul Michaels Events to DJ at our fundraising Gala (held this year at ULCC). From hire to execution, Paul and Brian, were insightful, thoughtful, and extremely prompt in their communications. When there are so many details to coordinate it is so nice to hire a professional company like Paul Michaels Events and know with complete confidence everything will run smoothly. They kept our crowd dancing and having an amazing time! Thank you guys!! More...

We used DJ Paul Michaels Events for our wedding and we couldn't have been happier. From the initial planning, Paul was organized and guided us in setting up our evening. The day of Paul and Brian made sure everything flowed smoothly! They made sure the dance floor was the place to be! All of our guest has a blast and we did too! Thank you for everything! More...

We are SO GLAD we chose Paul Michaels Events to DJ our wedding this past Saturday! We had Ian as our DJ and Brian as our Assistant. They were both AMAZING and helped make our event unforgettable. We knew we were in good hands with Paul Michaels as after we met with him once, we cancelled all our other prospective DJ meetings and booked with him! DJs Ian and Brian had our dance floor packed all night, did all the uplighting for our venue, did an awesome job with the Dancing On The Clouds that we added for our first dance (so special) and making sure all the speeches went off without a hitch. They even got to know our personalities and called my 'husband' up for a photo opp. in the DJ booth with his groomsmen, which made for an awesome memory. I would give them the highest recommendation to anyone I know looking for any kind of DJ services! More...

The Special Events DJz team helped bring my wedding together. They were on time. Very professional and the owner, Mike, was super friendly, outgoing, and ALWAYS available over the phone. We had cake mapping done on our Disney themed cake. The cake artist did an AMAZING job and it turned out exactly as we envisioned it. They also provided a beautiful monogram with our names and the Disney castle which fit our Disney theme perfectly. Now, as far as their bilingual DJ/MC....I would NOT go with DJ Noel.  I hate leaving a negative review BUT we felt he was inexperienced and had we known he would have made so many errors, we would have opted for another more experienced DJ/MC even if he was not bilingual. Would we hire Special Events Djz again? Most likely yes! Would we want Noel as our DJ/MC........sorry HARD pass. He needs way more training on his MC skills, spanish translation, and overall staying organized and sticking to the couples requests. Either way, thank you Special Events DJZ for making our room look like a Disney fairytale wedding!! More...

We used Paul as the DJ for our wedding on 9/8/18 and he was amazing! We got several compliments from our wedding guests about how much they enjoyed the music (and one even said it was the best music they'd ever heard at a wedding). The dance floor was full all night long! He made the planning process very easy, and he was one of our most organized vendors. I highly recommend Paul for any event! More...

Paul was absolutely terrific to work with for our wedding in June. He was always very attentive to our requests, and was able to find some obscure songs that we requested (traditional Irish songs). He was excellent during the reception of taking requests for songs, and making sure the music flowed without any down time. I would highly recommend using Paul for a wedding or any other event!

Paul did my wedding last week and absolutely crushed it. He was very professional from the first phone all the way until the end. Paul was easy to work with and constantly went above and beyond to make sure what we asked for and delivered. Paul also has a great feel of the crowd and makes sure that the party never stops. If I was going to get married a again I would hire Paul again! Lol More...

We had Paul for our wedding on 6/30/18. Leading up to the wedding he was organized, helpful, and pretty much willing to do everything to make sure our reception went perfectly. He worked as a day of coordinator - working with all of the other vendors to ensure everyone was on the same page - we were SO thankful for this part of his service - and it helped put us at ease. Paul and his assistant were so professional and helpful at the reception, making sure everyone was in place and ready before we were announced. Throughout dinner he went to every table asking for requests - something we'd never seen done before. Guests even said that he was super friendly! Every guest I've talked to since the wedding has commented on how good the music selection was. Each song flowed right into the next one and there was never any stoppage of music. We spent all night on the dance floor and loved every second of it! We definitely recommend DJ Paul Michaels Events to anyone that needs a DJ for any reason! More...

Paul is not just a DJ - you also get a built in wedding planner. He truly is an expert. He also makes sure the guests are engaged and personalizes every wedding to make sure the bride and groom feel like it's the most important day (even though Paul does it all the time). I can't imagine my wedding without having hired Paul. More...

I used Paul Michaels Events for my wedding and it was great! DJ Paul Michaels led me through the entire process with ease and it was fun getting to choose my songs online in my own wedding profile! I didn't see him or his assistant as just my DJ, they were so much more than that and I have continued to recommend him to every one I know! He will listen to you and make your wedding, or event, the best it can be! More...

Paul Michaels events was AMAZING! He was so detail oriented and on top of his game. Our wedding went flawlessly and was so much fun because of his music! His equipment was top of the line and the software he uses to prepare for the event made the process of selecting music seemless and fun. I can’t say enough good things about his DJ services. Worth every penny. :):) More...

Paul Michael Events was a clear and easy choice for us when it came to picking our DJ. The first time we met with Paul Michael, he really listened and understood what our vision was for the night of our wedding reception. He was well organized, proactive, personable, and not pushy. He had a lot of experience and helped us with some of the details we had not thought about. We did not have a wedding coordinator and ultimately decided to go with Paul Michael Events as they acted as both a coordinator and a DJ.

The night of the wedding, the flow of music was perfect and they kept everyone on the dance floor. They really helped make our night special. We highly recommend Paul Michael Events!

If you want a professional, fun, and entertaining music guru for your event, Paul Michaels is your guy! Paul and his crew had the guests on their feet all night at my wedding - it was incredible! From choosing the songs you want played, to planning how you will enter the ballroom, Paul is very detailed oriented and cares about making sure your event goes as smoothly as possible! Between this and all of the great add-ons he has to offer, I highly recommend hiring Paul Michaels for your next big event! More...

Hiring Paul was hands down one if the best decisions we made for our wedding. We had a large wedding with a large spread of ages and he got everyone on the dance floor. The uplighting and special "name in lights" feature was beautiful in both real life and all my pictures. His attention to detail and professionalism is outstanding, as well as the way he is always accessible and easy to reach! People still comment on my DJ over a year later! Hire Paul, you won't regret it! More...

I cannot say enough about how wonderful it was to work with Paul Michaels Events as my wedding DJ and photo booth. From the start Paul provided excellent and attentive service. He is extremely knowledgeable about the wedding world and has tremendously helpful insight. He was able to answer any an all questions we had without any hesitations. The online tools provided are wonderful to help nail down the details and made the planning process painless. Additionally, he was very reassuring through out the entire process and ultimately provided an excellent wedding day experience. He and his assistant were timely, kept us on track, played all of our requested songs and kept the party moving. After the wedding I had several people tell me he was one of the best wedding DJ's they had ever seen. 10 / 10 I would recommend his company for your event. More...

From day one Paul was supportive throughout the process. He did multiple check ins around your schedule and helped the ease the stress in any way he could. He has resources available if you need them, such as a place to rent a dance floor from, or possible photographers you can hire. Come the day of the wedding he did not disappoint. Weeks later, our families are still talking about the music from the reception and how much fun they had dancing. From the time the dancing started until the end of the night our dance floor was booming the whole time. More...

If you’re looking for a wedding or event DJ in Chicago or the suburbs, stop your search with Paul Michaels Events. Paul was our wedding DJ in June 2017 and we are beyond thrilled with everything he did to make our day the most memorable, fun and easy.

Here are 5 reasons why we loved working with Paul, and why you should hire him for your wedding or event!

1. From the moment we first spoke, Paul was professional, organized and communicated with us throughout our engagement. We always felt like we were an important client and that he understood what kind of music and vibe we wanted at our wedding.
2. He kept our dance floor packed! We had access to our playlist (Must Play, Maybe Play and Do Not Play), which was helpful as we planned our event. He made suggestions, and the result was the best dance party we could have hoped for!
3. As someone who has planned several events, I felt confident in my ability to keep everything organized and managed, but I couldn’t have done it that day without Paul. He went above and beyond to communicate with my other vendors in advance, managed the evening’s timeline, and kept in close communication with my groom and I throughout the night.
4. He took photos of us on the dance floor! In addition to all the wonderful photos and video I have from my other professional vendors, Paul snapped several shots of the dance floor and the very end of the night. We otherwise wouldn’t have had these memories, so this was a wonderful surprise!
5. He has a wide offering of services. We only used him for DJ services, but you can book Paul and his team for up-lighting, fog effects, photo booths and more. He has a ton of experience as well as connections in the industry (thanks for the last-minute transportation reco!).

Paul rocks, book him today!

If I could give more stars I would! I attended a wedding where Paul was the DJ 3 years ago, he was nothing short or awesome! Everything you would want a DJ to be, from mixing music to being the MC on dances to teach people so they do not feel left out. When we were searching for DJ's I asked my Fiance(Wife) to meet Paul, he was so professional and courteous towards her that I knew he would do anything to make sure it was the day she dreamed of.

I knew about Paul's music ability, but what really makes him worth every penny is his organizational skills. His website is easy to use for music choices and organizing, and he his very accommodating to what you want. He delivered on all the hype I promised and then some, even to the point where he said he was ahead of schedule (for this time sensitive OCD person) he made me feel relaxed. The dance floor was never empty, and the only thing I would change is to hire him for longer.

Most importantly he is a genuine person who cares about your special day. I feel that he wants to make sure its perfect and that is what drives him. If you give him the chance, you will not be disappointed.

P.S. If you hire Paul, please invite my wife and myself, we know it will be an awesome party!

Highly recommend DJ Paul Michaels! He has been the DJ for two of my family members prior to our wedding and did a fabulous job! As soon as we got engaged, we already knew we needed him to be our DJ. We had a very intercultural wedding (Mexican and Lithuanian) which needed a combination of Spanish, Lithuanian, and English music. DJ Paul Michaels did an awesome job by incorporating all of the music. Our guests really enjoyed themselves, we got multiple compliments, and our dance floor was always filled!! More...

I recently worked with DJ Paul Michaels for my wedding in March and his service was phenomenal! DJ Paul Michaels was absolutely fantastic to work with!!! He is very detail oriented and wants to ensure your wedding day goes perfectly! His level of quality standards is benchmark in the industry and the proof will be the amount of people on the dance floor. He is also very accommodating to your wedding needs and goes through every step of the planning process.

For those of you who are having Indian weddings, have no fear! My wedding ceremony/reception was Indian and it was executed flawlessly!

DJ Paul worked our wedding on October 14th, 2016. His professionalism and organization are unparalleled. He met with us multiple times to ensure that every finite detail was intimately planned. Additionally, he met with the venue to ensure that his set up, tear down, and event execution would be flawless.

His diligence and professionalism truly put us at ease. We had full confidence in him.

Paul had his finger on the pulse of the crowd the entire event. Despite the fact the crowd had eclectic tastes in music, Paul made sure the dance floor was filled to capacity. He really knew how to work the crowd. I personally appreciated how he staggered the speeches with the dinner courses so there wouldn’t be any speech-fatigue. Paul’s timing was on-point.

He helped make our day truly special, and we are forever thankful. To say that we strongly recommend Paul would be an understatement of epic proportions. If you’re going to choose a DJ for your wedding, your search begins and ends with DJ Paul. His professionalism, quality, diligence, responsiveness and flexibility are unrivaled.

DJ Paul Michaels is a DJ that I still don't believe is real. He is surely a mythical beast that has ventured into our reality with the sole purpose of being an amazing DJ. Couldn't ask for a more professional, timely, flexible purveyor of fine music. Beware of booking him for weddings though, because he's a handsome devil and might steal your girl. ;) More...

Worth every penny! Very detail oriented and contacts other vendors to make sure everything is set up so the bride and groom are stress-free on the wedding day. Very knowledgable with a variety of songs and kept all the guests dancing throughout the night! Our name in lights was phenomenal, a great add-on for sure. It was a pleasure doing business with Paul and his assistant Justin. If we ever need a DJ in the future, there is no doubt that we would contact Paul again! More...

Paul goes above and beyond to make sure your wedding is special. All the guests were impressed that he considered their song suggestions and not just the couples (which he would approve with the us if it seemed a little strange) He taught popular dances (The Wobble) to an overflowing dance floor. Book him! You won't regret it!

We we're referred to Paul through a friend, and loved his style. Awesome selection, and great quality speakers! We were sold before booking. Our reception went off without a hitch, couldn't have been more happy with the professionalism. I received a thank you email from our photographer who said that Paul was one of the best DJs he has worked with in a while because he let them know about when we would cut our cake and do our first dance, etc. I didn't even think about that! Glad we went with Paul! More...

Paul was fantastic in every way. He is highly organized and easy to work with leading up to the wedding. He met with us and helped us create exactly what we wanted. Paul assisted us with up lighting, a video slideshow, music and much more. Paul's easy to use web based portal page enables you to add any songs to your playlist at any point leading up to your big day as well as any songs you dont want. It also allows you to plan out your day and enables you to tell the DJ exactly what you want announced etc. You will not be disappointed if you book Paul. Very enthusiastic and easy to work with. I would definitely recommend him. More...

I was a picky bride about the music and worried about my 80 and 90 year old family members having a good time as well as our 20 and 30 year old friends- Paul had the whole wedding dancing all night! Book him, you won't regret it! More...

Paul was a great partner for our wedding. I say partner because he went above and beyond the normal DJ responsibilities while helping us plan our event! His advice and wedding expertise really helped us plan an incredible guest experience, which was very important to us! His software is easy to use, but sophisticated, and Paul was easy to schedule meetings with either in person or on Google Hangouts. Paul also offers fair pricing and a lot of fun extras. We had him provide our uplighting, which totally transformed the event space during dancing and helped make it a great party! Our guests never left the dance floor once it opened and it was hard to get everyone to leave at the end of the night; it just shows how much fun everyone had during the reception! Anyone looking for a DJ in the Chicagoland area should look no further! More...

DJ Paul is awesome!

His website can also be used to put together a timeline for the big day. Everything was perfect at our reception and our friends are still talking about how great the music was and how much fun they had! I've been to many weddings and Paul helped this become the best one I've been to. And I'm not just saying that because it was mine! More...

Paul was very easy to work with and an excellent DJ for our wedding! He was always available via a phone call, email or even a text whenever we needed anything from him and we had absolutely no concerns or problems with using Paul as our DJ. He even offers a bunch of extra lighting, sound, and visual effect features to help make your wedding day truly one of a kind and what you've always dreamed of. At one point during our reception, he even got on the dance floor and showed all of our guests how to do the 'Wobble' so everyone could join in! Highly recommended DJ! More...

We heard of DJ Paul through a friend of his that he went to school with. At the first meeting I could tell he was very thorough and took his job seriously. Every detail was needed and his goal was to help make our wedding perfect. His online system worked out really well, gave lots of suggestions for when we got hung up on finding a song, and made it easy to work on over time at home at our pace rather then try and hash it all out at once in one meeting. What I really liked was that he was all about the bride, whatever she wanted was what she would get, not that he ignored the groom or everyone else, but knows the wedding was to be the most important day of her life and wanted it to be as such. My wife's goal was to have the dance floor packed all night and not to let the party die out, and he succeeded over and above. In addition to music, he also brought up-lighting which tied our big room together so that it all felt like a party not just the dance floor, the projector and spot lighting for the dance floor, and what my wife really liked was his dancing on the clouds effect. For our first dance he had this fog machine that filled up the dance floor with fog making it look like we were literally dancing on clouds, awesome; none of the guests knew about it before hand and was definitely a highlight for everyone. So to those out there looking for a cheap dj with speakers that can play the normal top 40 songs, DJ Paul is not for you, he is a professional offering a service, and one must pay for professional service.

We first met DJ Paul at another family members wedding in July 2014. As the night went on, we were in awe at how hard and focused he was on making the couples day special and just perfect. We knew right then that we wanted to book him for our wedding, even though we had not yet set a date! At our first meeting, we knew that we had made the right decision. We had lots of ideas and he was able to take them all and help us plan out our special day. As we finally set our date in October 2015, we had the pleasure of working with Paul for about a year and a half. He was so responsive to text, email and calls.

As the wedding day came, we did not have to worry about a single detail. DJ Paul performed our Outdoor Ceremony music as well as our Reception Music and up-lighting. The dance floor was packed all night long, Paul as able to play off of the crowd, he knew what to play out of our playlist and requested songs to get our guest out on the dance floor. The up-lighting was awesome, it started with purple and changed throughout the night.

We highly recommend DJ Paul and his staff to anyone who is looking for a great DJ. We were so happy with our choice!

We were very happy we went with him as our DJ. He made the planning process seem more coordinated with very modern software that you could choose songs for "do" and "do not" play lists. Also he helped to pick out songs for the special dances and games if you needed it. We were happy that he had an assistant since he had some time to do some extras that I think might have been difficult without one. First we had a special effect called “dancing on the clouds” which was the DJ using dry ice to send a cloud of fog under our feet while we danced. This was a surprise hit with our family and friends, while it may be expensive, the wow factor alone makes this a worthwhile endeavor. Also his assistant took photos which were comparable to our own professional photographers. Lastly he assisted in the planning of the wedding as a whole, his website software allows for a timeline and can be used as a guide for the whole day. On top of that, DJ Paul Michael was willing to be in communication with other vendors and helped them queue up photos, make announcements and gave advice to help everything run smoothly. He also responded very fast to all of our questions compared to other experiences we have had in this wedding planning process. More...

From start to finish, Paul was amazing! I first spoke to him on the phone, & by the end of the call I knew we had found our DJ. At our first meeting he brought up a lot of points that we hadn't even considered which we greatly appreciated. He offered so many great additions to customize our wedding, most of which we used. He responded quickly to our questions and really made sure our day was unique to my husband and I. He really knows what he's doing. We still, a month later are getting comments about our wedding being one of the best and most fun. Paul is the reason for that, you seriously can't get any better. More...

Dj Paul Michaels was amazing. From beginning to ens, he reassured us that our wedding day would be perfect. He kept his word and had everyone on their toes the entire time. He is very professional and also gives advice/suggestions we never thought of. I originally heard about him when he was the dj at my cousin's wedding a few years back and it was so much fun. I would definitely recommend Dj Paul Michaels to anyone looking for a professional, affordable and outgoing DJ. More...

DJ Paul Michaels made the planning process stress-free. He helped us pick songs and created a realistic timeline for the day that we were able to stick to. DJ Paul Michaels also accommodated us during the planning process by holding many of our meetings online. This was extremely helpful because my fiancé and I lived in separate locations. Our wedding day was truly memorable. We received so many compliments after the wedding regarding the music and professionalism of DJ Paul Michaels. We couldn't have picked a better DJ! We recommend him to any couple who wants to have a fantastic and stress-free time at their wedding! More...

Dj Paul Michaels was amazing! He is organized, attentive, and has the latest technology. Our uplighting was beautiful and the music was exactly what we wanted. He helped us plan or timeline, gave us tons of suggestions on everything from music to games to when to cut the cake, and kept us and our guests dancing all night. We highly recommend him. More...

Paul Michaels is an amazing DJ. When my fiance and I started the search process for a DJ we had an idea of what we wanted. I found DJ Paul Michaels' website (on Wedding Wire) and found exactly what we were looking for. While out at a holiday party and a major venue we started talking about DJs and what would be great for our wedding. The DJ at this event sounded great. I looked up and it was Paul Michaels logo. We had to contact him. I emailed him and called him. He returned my call promptly and we set up an initial meeting. He reviewed his services and went over the basics. When we left that meeting my fiance and I knew we had our DJ. Paul is friendly, professional, down to earth, and easy to get along with. He also has all the latest technology.

Midway to our wedding date we had a second meeting. He went over his website and discussed more details. His website is great. His music selection is broken down many ways. Also, there are plenty of planning tools on his website that are very useful. The timeline feature is extremely useful. Paul also helps with this.

About three weeks prior to our magical day we had our final meeting with Paul. At this meeting we put the finishing touches on everything. He helped with special music selections and finalizing the timeline. From that day on we communicated mainly by phone, email, and text messages. All responses were answered in a timely manner. Paul helped us greatly.

Our wedding day arrived and it was time to party. Paul and his assistant Jon kept the day and night going. He provided the music prior to the ceremony, music for the ceremony (we provided music for him to use), music for the cocktail hour, and music for the reception. His equipment is top notch. When the dancing started he played a wide variety of music (from play list and from crowd interaction). It was great to have DJ Paul Michaels as part of our wedding day. We highly recommend him.

Paul was very professional and fun to work with through the whole wedding planning. He has a site that makes it really easy to pick all your specialty songs and request certain songs. This site also helps u find a lot of songs that we had not thought of. He helped plan the timing of the events for the evening, such as introductions, cake cutting, ceremony, speeches. We had a great time with him and he kept our dance floor full. Definitely recommend him to anyone looking for a fun yet professional Dj. He also took a lot of great pictures for us throughout the night. More...

Paul was everything we could've hoped for in a dj. Not only did he provide great music for our wedding but he helped us plan everything out through his online platform. Him and his assistant, Joe, we're incredibly helpful the day of, wrangling guests and working with the other vendors to ensure the day went smoothly. I would most certainly recommend Paul to any friend or family member! More...

DJ Paul Michaels was amazing to work with for our recent wedding. He is a fantastic DJ, entertainer and wedding coordinator all rolled in one. DJ Paul was extremely flexible with all of our requests, worked hard to find every song we wanted and legit knows everything about weddings inside and out. We had a couple of in-person meetings, many email exchanges and phone conversations. DJ Paul was extremely responsive and did an amazing job putting our timeline together and coordinating all of the many changes we had for our wedding day.

He uses an online service so you can easily pick your "must play", "play if possible" and "do not play songs". This was so fun and easy to you. I logged in MANY times to add songs and make changes, it was so simple to use. He also took requests from the wedding guests within our limits. Our dance floor was packed all night long and the nonstop dancing was absolutely thanks to DJ Paul.

DJ Paul provided us with an amazing light show and the coolest "dancing in the clouds" effect for our first dance together. People were in awe and I would absolutely recommend doing the clouds for a wedding. We kept it a secret and it definitely had the wow factor. The photos DJ Paul provided us were AWESOME.

Hands down DJ Paul is the best wedding DJ I've seen, 100% recommend him to everyone!

This was the second time that our family used DJ Paul Michaels. He will not disappoint. We had multiple generations at my dad's birthday party - from babies to the elderly and Paul accommodated requests that spanned decades. DJ Paul did a great job keeping the dance floor filled and even got on the floor and led us in a line dance. I highly recommend DJ Paul! More...

I am so glad my husband and I chose to have Paul to be our DJ for our wedding. He did such an amazing job, and his experience and knowledge with weddings was also very helpful throughout the entire process. Paul was very responsive and helpful all throughout, responding to our questions by phone and e-mail very quickly. Paul also gave really good suggestions that made our event that much better! For example, after seeing our venue (which he visited to check out), he suggested to add uplighting, which I'm so glad we did, because it really added to the ambiance of our space. Then, Paul went a step further on our wedding day and acted as a coordinator of the ceremony and reception, making sure that everyone, including our pastor, catering staff, bridal party, etc., was all on the same page and timed event accordingly. Everything went so smoothly throughout the day, and I know that Paul played a big part in that. Also, Paul is an amazing DJ. I have been to so many weddings where there were very few people on the dance floor, and by the end of the night, no one was even dancing. That was definitely not the case at my wedding! Paul kept people dancing all night long until the reception was over. He picked great songs, interacted with the guests, and even led a really fun group line dance, which resulted in some great pictures. We received SO many compliments about Paul. I could not have asked for a better reception full of dancing! To top it all off, Paul then created a blog for our wedding, which included over 100 pictures that he took personally and a summary of our event that we could share with our guests. It was a pleasant surprise that I was so excited about and thankful for! As you can see, I cannot say enough positive things about our experience with Paul. I would highly recommend him to anyone that is looking for a DJ for their wedding or other special event, and have been referring his services constantly to people ever since. Thanks so much everything, Paul! More...

Being a previous wedding DJ, choosing one for my wedding reception was an important decision and one where I found myself to be extremely picky. DJ Paul Michaels was the right choice and I could not have chosen better. He met all our wedding needs and provided a night for our guests to enjoy and remember. More...

My husband and I were married on October 25th and we absolutely had the time of our lives, and a big reason was because of the music of the night. Dj Paul Michaels did an outstanding job. He was very flexible, professional, helpful and overall a great guy to work with. I highly recommend him. If I could I would do it all over again. As a bride with a million things to do, he was very understanding and looked out for my husbands and I best interests. We were all having so much fun that we ended up extending our reception at the last minute. More...

Paul was amazing! He was by far the most helpful and professional vendor i dealt with for my wedding. He was always there with suggestions for us when we needed it. He brought an assistant to make sure all set ups, break downs, and moves went smoothly. He was also very on top of timing for the day and actually kept our venue more on schedule instead of the opposite! Paul even went to the venue site (outdoor wedding) a few weeks prior to scout it out and be sure he was prepared for everything. I have never heard of any DJ doing this before!! Of course the music was great but his professionalism and personality can not be beat. HIRE PAUL!! More...

Paul and his assistant were excellent!
We booked his company for my daughter's 
wedding at Meson Sabika.
The service was outside which required speakers and microphones as well as music.
The reception inside the pavilion also had to be set up with duplicate equipment.
Set up was flawless.
Operation through out the evening was well timed and on track. The dance floor was never empty! The lighting package was well worth the additional cost.
You could tell that Paul enjoys the work and enjoys seeing guests happy. He went from table to table writing down requests- impressive!
Somebody dropped a glass on the dance floor and he immediately switched the music to "walking on broken glass" funny and 
Functional.
A true expert at his craft.
It was a great memorable night.
Thanks Paul!!!

Paul was a great dj. He was extremely flexible to our needs and provided us with an experience tailored to us. He was extremely responsive to email. His planning form on his website was really nice because we could edit the songs we wanted on our own time. During the event he walked around to the tables and asked for requests from the crowd to get a good feel for the best songs to play. He had everyone dancing the whole night and kept the party going to the end. Would definitely recommend him! More...

We planned our wedding while working abroad in Europe, and Paul was extremely accommodating. We talked several times via Google Hangout since we were all in different locations. He was also very thorough about everything that we had to do and he responded quickly to our emails. From the moment we met Paul we felt confident about his ability to make our wedding great. He had a planning form on his website so that we could plan the timing and order for the introductions, toasts, special dances, etc. and he took careful notes on how to pronounce everyone's name correctly. He also planned our entrance to the reception so that it would line up perfectly with the music - and it did! During the reception, he went around to each table individually to ask for song requests. People were commenting all night about how personable and approachable the DJ was. They were also amazed at how smooth everything ran throughout the night. None of this would have been possible without Paul. We would highly recommend Paul to anyone who is ever looking for a great DJ. He was phenomenal. Thank you Paul!! More...

Paul was always available during the months before the wedding if I ever needed to contact him. He always responded in a timely manner and I could send him more ideas pretty much whenever I felt like it. He made sure he understood us so that he could give us everything we wanted once the wedding came. At the wedding he took care of everything and guided us through everything from our intros to our bouquet/garter toss and even taught our guests the dance to a song so that we could all do it and have fun. I would highly recommend him for your wedding or any event you are having. More...

Paul was early in setting up his equipment and testing the sound. He was professional and patient in taking and reviewing song requests to ensure they were appropriate. I would definitely recommend DJ Paul for any corporate event. More...

DJ Paul Michaels was a perfect fit for our wedding. He was professional throughout the entire evening and kept the reception moving smoothly. Our wedding party was a very rowdy group, too, but that did not phase him. He just kept everything flowing. I was actually amazed at how calm he was which helped me remain calm!

DJ Paul Michaels read the guests really well and played the right music at the right time. Not to mention his great sense of humor got everyone off to a good start! Everyone complimented us on our choice of DJ; well after our wedding. I would most definitely recommend him to any of my friends and will use his services again for any other event I have that needs a DJ. He was just great!

Well my wedding was my very first experience with booking a DJ. I was not sure what to expect. I was referred to a couple different DJ's who claimed they were the "best". Then I was referred to Paul and I have to say, he not only met my ridiculously high expectations, he surpassed them exponentially! He had such an excellent grasp of the crowd & knew what he should play depending upon the mood. Having Paul was the closest thing I had to a wedding planner. He went above & beyond traditional DJ responsibilities. Upon meeting with him I was blown away by his detail oriented & professional approach to hosting my event; which was not at all what I was expecting, but everything that I needed!!!! I had no clue all the intrinsic details of being a DJ & how they are paramount in making the event go off perfectly. To my surprise, it is a very serious & TIME CONSUMING job that needs someone who is very detail oriented to truly make the event special. Paul is the best of both worlds, he has a technical IT background w/ a gift for good music. Therefore, you get the best technology with a DJ that makes the event amazing!!!! I know that if I had used any other DJ it would of greatly subtracted from my event. Who you entrust this specific responsibility to, can truly make or break the event. You can count on him for a well orchestrated event. I was really lucky to have been referred to him. My event was at the Lyric Opera House, which is fairly particular about what vendors they allow us to use. Paul went and met with the event coordinator & was always available. He kept in touch with her via email & was organizing things w/ her behind the scenes when I had no idea it was even going on (and for a very busy bride, this is invaluable). I felt in very good hands with Paul & would highly recommend his services to anyone. My experience with him was undoubtedly & absolutely superb & one that has made me a client of his for life!

Paul was great for our wedding! We had him do the music for our outdoor ceremony as well as the reception, and we got to pick exactly what music we wanted playing and when, and Paul made it all work, even when we chose a couple of songs that he didn't already have in his library (we picked some very obscure things, he has a TON of music!) Our guests commented on how the music at the ceremony was just enough; it could be heard clearly but wasn't too overpowering. The music at the reception was awesome! When we met with him beforehand, Paul talked about how he would read the crowd and change the music as necessary, and he did just that without making it really obvious. I was surprised at how many people stayed on the dance floor almost the whole night! We were lucky to have a DJ that was not only excellent at what he was doing, but cared about each individual couple and checked in with us throughout the night to make sure we were happy. More...

Honestly Paul was a great DJ to work with. He was able to make everything relating to the entertainment worry-free for me. This was a HUGE deal when I know I was already a "bride-zilla". My husband and I met with him ahead of time and had numerous phone calls to confirm all the little things that popped into our head later on, just to find out Paul was always a step ahead of us. In terms of the actual wedding, he had a nice clean setup and I can't think of anything that went wrong the whole night. He even came up to my husband and I at the head table because so many people kept clinking glasses and said he was going to turn it around so we could actually eat our dinner and instead we were going to make other couples kiss! I'm recommending him to all my friends for their weddings! More...
